Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. It’s been hot and humid here still and I have no desire to be outside. I’ll be at the dog bakery today and since it’s been so hot, not many dogs have been coming in.

I had fun playing and building today’s card. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Thank You 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #567.

My colors are from Color Throwdown challenge #704. Although the colors don’t scream beachy, I made it work, I think.

I started by adhering a panel of Rustic Harvest DSP to a Crumb Cake card base. I cut 9 of the smallest circles from the Layering Circle Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut 9 of the smallest scalloped circles from the Layering Circle Dies from a panel of Basic Black cardstock. On the 5 Basic White circles I stamped the seaweed images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Mossy meadow Ink, one stamped full strength and one stamped off once on scrap paper. On the remaining 4 circles I stamped the 2 smallest seashell images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.

I adhered the 9 Basic White circles to the 9 Basic Black scalloped circles using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered circles to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered a piece of Black Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Classic Matte Dots by the sentiment and a couple Pearl Basic Jewels on 2 of the seashell circles.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the seaweed images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom of the panel, one stamped in full strength and the others stamped off once on scrap paper. I stamped the seashell image next to the seaweed in Crumb Cake Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the seaweed image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the seashell image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink next to the seaweed. I adhered a panel of the Rustic Harvest DSP to the envelope flap.
