It's all about the crabs today over on the CrafTanlges blog HERE. I've got a blog post showcasing those cute crab stamp sets which are perfect for the weather we've been having this Bank Holiday! There's a mini tutorial too, more details further down my post.
The sentiments with the sets are all quite amusing and go so well with the crab images. The crabs have great expressions on their faces - they certainly make me smile!
For my first card I used a film strip die cut as I associated the 'snappy' sentiment not only with the crab but taking photos.
For my second card I used a really versatile stencil set to create the distress ink beach background. I made a funny scene with one of the crabs being hoisted by the balloon.
For my final card, I've done a tutorial to show how easy it is to make these circle easel cards. They're fun!
I've kept the designs quite simple so that the crabs stand out. I've used my zigs to colour in all the images and added a Wink of Stella for a little sparkle.
We're hoping to spend a day at the seaside tomorrow as the weather is supposed to hold out and I'm really looking forward to as I find the sea so calming, I could sit and watch it all day!
Have a great week,
