Sailing Away With Scribbles Designs

We are midway through the current challenge at Scribbles Designs with the theme Holiday Hoopla. I have again chosen to focus on the summer holidays.


Materials used:
Scribbles Designs – Sailboat 1
Scribbles Designs – Sizzling Summer Paper Set
circle die set
circle cutting compass
acrylic greeting stamp
black archival ink pad
white card
printer card and paper
X-Press It card
Copic pens

I used a piece of A4 white card to create the base for my rocker card and covered it with a piece of blue DP printed from the Sizzling Summer set. I ran a blue copic pen around the edges to finish off.

I printed out the boat image on X-Press It card, coloured it with Copics and fussy cut it out.

For the image mat I die cut a circle from white card and covered half with the wave paper printed from the Sizzling Summer set and the top half with some more of the blue paper. I ran a length of blue satin ribbon across the middle to hide the join.

I attached the circle to the card base and added the boat image using gel glue to add a little dimension.

I cut two strips of the wave paper, glued them together and concertina folded the strip before sticking to the card front.

Finally I stamped the greeting using black ink.

This is my first rocker card, it took a bit of working out to get the sizes correct but I am pleased with the outcome for a first attempt. Hopefully I will get around to trying some more in the future.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
