Cape Cod Resilience Fund with Jenn Shurkus Stamps

Hi everyone!
I hope your day is off to a great start!
Today I have a few projects to share with you that I created to help fellow crafter and cardmaker, Jenn Shurkus with a cause that she holds near and dear to her heart. Jenn Shurkus lives on Cape Cod and is raising money for the Cape Cod Resilience Fund. This fund will help small businesses on Cape Cod who are experiencing financial difficulties due to Covid-19. This fund will be around for the long run, and continue to help small businesses out in the future. YOU can help by purchasing one of Jenn's exclusive Cape Cod stamp sets. For each set sold between June 15th- July 1st, $10 will be donated to the CCRF. Another way you can help? Share this with your creative friends and help spread the word! More details can be found on Jenn's site here: https://shurk.us/CCRF

Here is a look at the projects that I created to share with you today using that super cute Cape Cod stamp set that Jenn sent to me.

As soon as I saw the lobster in this stamp set, my brain immediately went to one of my favorite TV show, Friends. On the show, the term Lobster refers to someone that you are meant to be with forever. I thought it would be fun to create a card with that theme in mind for my hubby. I stamped a bunch of the Lobster images onto a piece of white cardstock and used a stitched die to cut it out. I dipped the end of an embossing stylus into some gray ink to add the fun polka dots. I used my computer to create my sentiment and matted it onto a piece of red cardstock, tied a bow and added the image panel to a red card base. I stamped another Lobster onto a piece of white cardstock and colored it with my Copic markers. I used some heart dies to cut it out, popping it up onto another heart with some foam tape and adding it to my card front. Super easy to do but I love how it turned out!

My second card is a beach themed card using the fun adirondack chairs from the stamp set. 

I grew up at the beach and still live fairly close to the beach and while I do love the fall and winter months, there is nothing quite like relaxing at the beach and listening to the ocean and the seagulls. So peaceful! I started this card by creating a white card base and added some bright striped patterned paper on top. I added a piece of turquoise cardstock to one side and a bright pink circle to the center. I stamped those chairs and the umbrella onto a piece of white cardstock and colored the chairs with my Copic markers and paper pieced the umbrella with more of the bright pink paper. I created a basic background by adding sand, ocean and sky with my Copics. I used a stamp set from Lawn Fawn for the Seagulls and die cut it out using a circle die. I popped it up onto my pink circle with foam tape and used a die from MFT for my puffy cloud, which I also popped up with foam tape. I stamped my greeting from a My Creative Time stamp set, notched the ends and added that to my card front. I finished my card by adding some doodling with a black sharpie pen. 

I decided that it would be fun if I made the above beach themed card into a little gift set so I created a fun little treat to accompany the card.
I started by using a crate die and creating my little crate from some white cardstock. I added some pierced waves and stitched sand layers to the front. I colored that fun Cape Cod sign, adirondack chair and umbrella with my Copic markers and fussy cut them out. I placed them onto my crate and added some nuvo drops for a little sparkle. I filled my crate with some crinkle paper and some yummy salt water taffy!

Thank you so much for stopping by today and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really do appreciate it!
