Oceans of love

There’s nothing like waking up at 3:30am and not being able to go back to sleep. So I got up and got ready for the day very early this morning!  I’ve been tired all day but I, unfortunately, am one of those people who cannot nap, otherwise I’d be up half the night again tonight.  So, I’ve been trying to stay busy, and plan on a very early night tonight!

I made a 3D pop up box card today.  It’s ocean themed and the sentiment reads “Sending oceans of love”. 

I used two stamp sets for this card.  Both were in kits from Scrapping For Less.  I stamped the images and then colored them with alcohol markers.  I then cut them out.  I made the box card using a die set from Echo Park.  I embossed some paper and added it to the box and then attached all the images. I used the sentiment “sending oceans of love”.

What about a box card today?

So today was another day spent at home. I am trying to stay home unless I have to go out.  Our state has limited contact to 10 people or under. My husband and daughters are still going to work, although my daughters have reduced hours now.  I am trying not to stress over everything but its hard.  I have been trying to limit the amount of news that I watch, just getting the headlines daily, but sometimes even that is too much.  There’s a fine line for me between staying informed and avoiding too much stress.  So I try to come into my craft room daily and create something to try to take my mind off everything going on.  We are still dealing with aftershocks from the earthquake.  Thankfully I am not feeling them although today we had some stronger ones of 3.3.  

What do you think about box cards?  I think they are pretty cute so I decided to make one with a new stamp set I got from MFT stamps called “Party Animals”.  

I cut the box using an Echo Park die and stamped and fussy cut the animals.  I used alcohol markers to color them. I used a Honey Bee die to cut the grass and I decorated the box with paper from Echo Park.  After the coloring it was just a matter of glueing everything together.
