Stampin’ Up Seaside Notions for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week? Ready or not, which I’m assuming most of us are ready, the weekend is here.  Has anyone made any plans?  I’ll be at work this weekend, we’re having a bucket sale for the Children’s Miracle Network.  You make a donation by buying a bucket and almost everything you can fit in the bucket you get 20% off.   I’m sure it will be a busy weekend there.

For today’s card, I’ve seen this one done a few time using a circle.  I’ve decided to be a little different and use a square turned diamond.  Here’s my card.

My card was able to join in with a couple challenges.  First off is The Library Challenge

Next is the Stampin’ Up Only Challenge #228: New Catalog Favorites

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #232 “Anything Goes”

I started with a Pear Pizzazz card base and scored it at 4 1/4″ and 8 1/2″.    I adhered 2 panels of Petal Pink Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the card front.  I opened my card base and placed the 2″ square die from the Layering Squares Dies on the shorter end score line having the 2 corners on the score line and cut it out.

I stamped the Coral, Seahorse and Shells from the Stampin’ Up Seaside Notions Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on scrap pieces of Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I colored everything in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Purple Posy, Seaside Spray, Smoky Slate and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut all the pieces out using my Paper Snips.

I wrapped a piece of Flax Ribbon around the top portion of the card front and tied a knot.  I adhered all the Coral, Shells and Seahorse where I wanted them on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a 2″ square out or Petal Pink cardstock using the Layering Squares Dies.  Using the layered square just smaller than the 2″ I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock out and stamped it with the sentiment from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I cut the scalloped square out using the Layering Squares Dies that is a hair larger that the Whisper White square out of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White square to the Pear Pizzazz scalloped square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then adhered it to the Petal Pink square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I lined up the cut out square with the card base area that was cut out and adhered the square to the inside section of the card base using Glue Dots.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the sentiment panel.

On the inside I stamped the sand and seahorse from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the sand along the bottom of the Whisper White panel stamping off once and the seahorse on the side of the panel.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front of the envelope with the sand and seahorse from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Subtle 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

What’s the old saying? Variety is the spice of life? At Paper Pumpkin, we like to mix things up and keep our customer’s crafting experience fresh and fun.
