Hello – Samantha here, with this bright pink lobster card I created using a few Ink Road Stamp sets. My last share I created a card to showcase the set The One with all the Stamps. I didn’t get a chance to play with all the little images in the set but I thought the lobster was really cute so I decided to make a cut file with my Silhouette Cameo and use this as well as the sentiment from this set to create my card. From there my idea developed more and I added the stamp Between the Lines to emphasize the lobsters cuteness and create some contrasting waves!
There are a few fun elements to this card. The background was stamped and heat embossed using clear embossing powder. I love clear embossing – it makes everything shiny and adds nice texture to a card. I also machine stitched a border (optional) on my card base. After the lobster was machine cut I stamped over it using the Between the Lines stamp set. I paper pieced the lobster background and added machine stitched details. The sentiment was stamped on pink card, again I added stitched details and I decided to also add some stamping detail where I simply masked off the sentiment and stamped over it. I finished the card off with sequins, a glitter heart and black twine.
As you can see I did take a few detailed photos to try and capture the texture, glitter and gloss on this card. The photos don’t do it justice!
I absolutely love where my Ink Road Stamps take me creatively. Contrasting colours, fun stamped backgrounds, a PINK lobster!
