Hello crafty friends,
For my post today, I have two cards featuring the super cute new Octopus die:
The card on the left was quick and easy... pattern paper for the card front, die cut octopi/octopodes/octopuses (?) from pink card stock and a die cut Hello.
The card on the right took a little longer. It's my take on a card I saw Sandy Allnock's create called Zentangle Stamped Octopus. I loved her card so much that I just had to make one for myself. I put my own spin on the card's design. First, I used variegated blue pattern paper for my card front, because I can't seem to keep white cards white. I die cut a few Octopuses from white card stock, dry embossed them with a tiny circle folder and inked them w/light blue ink. Next I glued them to the card front and using several small circle stamps, started stamping in all the open spaces.
Once I filled the card front, I added a few blue sequins and my version of Sandy's card was done.
