Sea Themed Cards for Mom & Grandma!

Today we are sharing a duo of sea themed cards by Maria featuring our Tides of Love Stamp Set that are perfect for sending love to a special Mother or Grandma for Mother's Day or any time of year! Although we first think of this set as a Valentine's Day Set, these projects show how this set can be used for so much more!

Her first card features the image of the Octopus hugging a heart from our Tides of Love Stamp Set. She colored him with alcohol markers, adding fun speckled details and then fussy cut the image out by hand to add to her card. For the card base she added layers of waves using the hill from our Hills & Grass Stencil with several shades of blue inks! So pretty! She added the octopus, along with some seaweed (die from another brand) and clear epoxy bubble stickers. For the sentiment she combined the word "mother" from the Lovely Blooms Stamp Set with the "You Octopi my heart!" from the Tides of Love Stamp Set.

Here is a close up so you can see all the amazing details:

For her second card, she created a whale card for Grandma!

She used the image of the whale from our Tides of Love Stamp Set, stamping it in light gray to give the edges a soft look! She colored the image in soft shades, giving the octopus a sweet pink cheek! She used the coordinating Tides of Love Die Set to cut out the image. For her card she created a lovely sea colored background with distress inks. For the sentiment she combined the "I whale always love you" from the Tides of Love Stamp Set with the word "grandma" from our Lovely Blooms Stamp Set. She framed the scene with a decorative die cut frame (from another brand). 

Here is a close up so you can see the beautiful coloring:

We hope this card by Maria has inspired you to look at your stamps in new ways and use stamps for occasions other than the ones they were meant for!
