Stampin’ Up! Seaside Notions Birthday for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Karen Finkle’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Celebrate Summer”.  We can interpret this however we want.  I chose to make a birthday care since I have a lot of summer birthdays.  Here’s my card.

I played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #343.  Here is their Inspiration.  I’d like to be at any of these places right now.  I love spending time on the beach, it’s so peaceful and relaxing to me listening to the waves and seagulls.

I started by stamping the coral, seahorse and seashell images from the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Notions Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered them each to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the sentiment from Seaside Notions stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of a Petal Pink card front and embossed the panel using my Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the matted panel and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Calypso Coral card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Elegant Faceted Gems.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the coral image from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Soft Suede Ink and colored it in using my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the seahorse and coral images from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front and the seashell image on the envelope flap.  I colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.
