Inking of You

Have you had a chance to check out the Octopi Guys clear stamp set?  For all of you that love outline dies, that is one of the options in this past release.  I decided to combine it with the Octo Elements as they go so nicely, and definitely do compliment.  This bright and cheerful card was created in stages, and if I had to do over again I would coordinate the colors a bit better, but all and all I love all the products combined.

Creating this Card:

The new Slimline paper packet Under the Sea, sets the stage for this card.  I placed a panel of the paper on the front of the card, and then die cut out the opening using the Octo Elements outline die.  Once the opening was created I stamped and colored the life ring from Octo Elements, and then die cut it out.  This was then placed over the opening.  You can easily turn this into a shaker card, but I decided to place an octopus on the inside of the card instead.

After coloring and cutting out two of the Octopi Guys, I used the outline dies to cut them out.  They were both placed onto the card.  Using some seaweed from Build and Ocean die, I placed it around the octopus on the inside of the card.

To finish off the card I used my favorite Bold ABC dies to finish off one of the sentiments in the set.  I know this card is a bit over the top, but I still had to share as these fun Octopus are hands-down…or is that hands-up…the best!
