Stampin’ Up Seascape Thanks

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? We’re going back to our heat advisory here again, real feel temps here are expected to be 104. Guess I’ll be doing any outside work early in the morning.

I played around with my blending brushes for today’s card along with the masking technique. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Seascape Bundle for my card along with a lot of colors.

I started by cutting the fish image using the Sea Life Dies from a Basic White card front. This image does not cut out the fish completely. If I wanted it cut out I needed to use my Paper Snips. I cut another fish from a sticky note using the Sea Life Dies. I adhered the sticky not on top of the cut fish on my Basic White panel and began my blending. I started on the bottom with Sahara Sand Ink and using my Blending Brush I added the amount of color I wanted. Using my Blending Brushes I added Pool Party Ink to the top of the panel, Coastal Cabana Ink below that and Bermuda Bay Ink on the bottom above the sand. Once I was done, I removed the sticky note and my fish was nice and clean. I added a panel of the darker end of the Mango Melody Ombre Specialty Paper behind the fish using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the seaweed image from the Stampin’ Up! Seascape Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink on either side of the panel. I stamped the sand image from the Seascape stamp set along the bottom of the panel in Sahara Sand Ink. Using my Sea Life Dies I cut out the coral image from a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock. I cut the die in half and adhered the 2 pieces on either side of the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Coastal Cabana card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Silver Epoxy Essentials above the fish.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Seascape stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the one end on an angle using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Seascape stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sand image from the Seascape stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink along the bottom of the panel. I stamped the seaweed in Just Jade Ink on the side and the fish image from the Seascape stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink along the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand image from the Seascape stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink along the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the seaweed image in Just Jade Ink on the side and the fish image across the bottom in Calypso Coral Ink. On the envelope flap, I used my Blending Brushes like I did for the card front.

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

  1. Thanks for another take on the Seascape bundle and the great tip about masking with the post-it note over the die-cut portion. I use pieces of the “all sticky” note for die cutting, but haven’t tried it for masking–now I will. Appreciate all the directions/measurements you give.

    • I’m happy I can help Gail 🙂 Please feel free to share your take on my card on my Facebook page under the post for this card. I’d love to see yours. I used the “all stick” notes all the time, they’re great!
