Stampin’ Up! Seascape Sparkly Birthday

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Are you doing anything fun? Anyone heading out on vacation? Don’t forget tomorrow is the last day to take advantage of my Double Creative Stamping Designs Rewards. For orders of $50 increments, you will earn 2 Rewards, so $50=2, $100=4, $150-6, etc. Visit my rewards page here for details.

Today’s card is very similar to one I made last week, but more on the feminine side. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Seascape Bundle along with the fun Layering Diorama Dies for my card.

I started by stamping a Mint Macaron card base using the seaweed image from the Stampin’ Up! Seascape Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I stamped the small school of fish image from the Seascape stamp set on the front of card base in Mint Macaron Ink

I cut a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock and a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using my Layering Diorama Dies. I stamped the small school of fish image from the Seascape stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the Mint Macaron panel. I adhered the panels together using Stampin’ Seal and then to the Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Prince & Princess Host Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink on a strip of Basic White cardstock. Using my Paper Snips I cut the end into a banner and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Sea Life Dies, I cut the large fish from a panel of Rainbow Glimmer Paper. Using my Paper Snips, I cut the fish away from the paper since it doesn’t cut it out completely. I cut the small fish dies from scraps of the different colored Ombre Specialty Paper. I adhered a few of the small fish using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the large fish using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the Clear Epoxy dots from the Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Whale Done Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the seaweed image from the Seascape stamp set in Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the bubble image from the Seascape stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the panel. I adhered the glimmer die cut fish using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the envelope front with the seaweed image from the Seascape stamp set in Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam Inks. I stamped the small fish image from the Seascape stamp set in Mango Melody Ink and the bubble in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the envelope front and flap.

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