Here is the second card I made from my 3 Little DReaMs kit.

The only thing not in the kit is the white grosgrain ribbon. I colored over the water with my clear glaze pen(seriously love that thing, so handy!) and used my trusty Coluzzle to cut out the ovals. I went around the green oval with my old-school scallop scissors. I'm taking a stand and not buying the Nestabilities! Well, someday I might break down and get them, but not anytime soon!

Here is a close up of the water-

Ready for your tip today? It involves the Coluzzle, this is something I love to do with my clear stamps!

When you are cutting out a shape with the Coluzzle and want your sentiment(or borders work too) to follow the same direction as your cut, use your Coluzzle template for a block!

Just bend the stamps (love that about clear stamps) to fit the shape the way you want! That is how I got my sentiment above my turtle. The turtle in the water is one stamp and the sentiment is another, but I wanted them on the same oval piece. I cut the paper on the third oval, so I just lined up my stamp right inside that line. I also used a permanent marker to make the different lines different colors so I could see easier where I was cutting. Easy-peasy! I hope that makes sense! If you have any questions, just ask!

Pin It!

Your card is so cute and your coloring is awesome! Thank you for the great tip about using the coluzzle with the clear stamps!

Were did you get your clear glaze pen, that sounds cool? I usually use SU's crystal effects, but it would be neat to be able to get it in a pen!
