Hello, my crafty friends.  I hope you find time today to craft to your heart's content.  My name is Shannon and I’m so happy to be here with you on the TLC Designs blog. I am so honored to have been chosen as one of the newest design team members. I’m so proud to work among a bunch of very talented designers.  Thank you, Tammy Louise and Shanna for taking a chance on me.

Since I started shopping at TLC Designs, I’ve discovered digital stamps.  OMG, they are so much fun! You can print them individually or create an entire scene with them.  If you haven’t tried digital stamps, I highly recommend them.  The design possibilities are endless and their price point is unbeatable.

Now, on to the cards I’ve created.  That’s right, cards.  I couldn’t decide which way to create this card, so I created two.  One is with individual images, and the other is a digital scene I put together with almost exactly the same images.

I started by printing out the individual digi stamps and a scene I created from the Sam The Seahorse Digi Stamp Set  by TLC Designs.  This set includes super cute sea creatures, sea foliage, sea shells, sentiments and a sandy scene that could be used as the bottom of an underwater scene or maybe even a beach.

After I printed the individual images and the scene, I colored all of them with Ohuhu alcohol markers.  These are one of my new go-to coloring mediums. I’ve included all of the color combinations I used at the end of this post.

Both of the cards I created are slimline cards measuring 4” x 8.5”.  On the first card, I printed the sandy scene with the image at the bottom of the page so I could cut a 3.75” x 8.25” panel from that piece of cardstock. For the card with the individual images, I used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut all of the elements for that card.

I used two Ohuhu markers to color the water on both the full scene and the panel with only the sandy ocean bottom.  Using BG68, I swiped from side to side on the panels, leaving a small gap in between each of the brush strokes as to create movement in the water.  I came back to the panel with B030 and blended in the previously colored brush strokes.

For the sandy ocean bottom, I colored all of the sand with E230.  I then used Y11, Y12 and Y210 to create shadows and dots in the sand.  I believe that technique is called stippling.

For the card with the individual images, I glued them all in place on the panel with just the sandy ocean bottom, using acrylic matte medium.  I forgot that I wanted to pop up Sam the seahorse, but it was too late… I had already glued him down.  The only image I popped up with double sided foam adhesive was the seashell at the bottom of the card.

Then, I brought the card panel to my MISTI to stamp the sentiment “Sending you happiness”, at the top.  This comes from the Must Haves Sentiments by TLC Designs.  This set includes lots of go to sentiments we all use in card making. 

After stamping the sentiment with Versifine Onyx Black Pigment ink, I covered it with clear superfine embossing powder.  I used my heat tool to melt the embossing powder.  Watching embossing powder melt never gets old.  I love the shine it gives the stamped image.

The finishing touches on that card include some gems I used as bubbles and a foiled sentiment strip; I had on hand.  I glued both panels to 4” x 8.5” pieces of Neenah Desert Storm 80# cardstock. Then adhered the final products to card bases measuring the same size.

That’s it. The cutest underwater scenes ever!

I hope this inspires you to create an underwater scene of your own using products by TLC Designs.  The “Seahorse Sam” digi set is currently on sale for $3.50.

Enjoy the rest of your crafty day.
