Hi there stampers – I’m here to show you a card technique from back in the 90s when I was a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator the first time around, when my kids were little. This is a card made with hair gel – you know the “dippity doo” kind of gel. (I got mine at the big box store and spent a whopping 97 cents.) You will also need a 4″ x 6″ cellophane bag.
By the Tide Hair Gel Technique
I used a Sarah Sand cardbase and then a 5.5″ x 4.25″ layer of Pacific Point. I used the smaller framelit from the Project Life framelit set to make the Pacific Point layer a frame. I did my stamping, with the By the Tide stamp set, on the cardbase and used a scrap piece of Sahara Sand cardstock to stamp the lobster in Cajun Craze and cut it out with the paper snips. I stamped the little circle with the anchor in Night of Navy on another scrap and cut it out with the 1″ circle punch.
I trimmed down the 4″ x 6″ cellophane bag to be 4″ x 5.25″ so that it will fit in the frame. I then filled it with a few table spoons of blue hair gel and then made sure to seal the end of the bag REALLY WELL! I have double sided tape between the two layers at the end and then used packing tape to go over the edge again. I then used sticky strip to adhere the bag to the frame and adhered that to my card with Stampin’ dimensionals.
