Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  I hope everyone is having a productive week. We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend. It’s been gorgeous here for the past week, sunny and perfect temp.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is By The Sea. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set for my clean and layered card today.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #178.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I played along with the Alphabet Challenge ‘F is for Friendship’.

I started by stamping the shell images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a Shimmery White panel. I cut the image out using the largest die from the Seaside Seashells Dies. I them embossed the panel using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.

I lined up a panel of Pool Party cardstock with the front of a Basic White Thick card base and using the 2nd largest die from the Deckled Rectangle Dies, I cut both panels together. I put a think bead of Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the edge of the front of the Basic Whtie Thick card base and adhered the die cut shells. I adhered the Pool Party frame over the die cut panel, making sure it lined up with the card base, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Using my Blending Brush and Balmy Blue Ink, I added color to a panel of Vellum Paper. I adhered the panel of inked Vellum to the inside front of the Basic White Thick card base with the inked side against the die cut image.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sand dollar image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set over the sand dollar image in Sahara Sand Ink. I cut the image out using the coordinating die from the Seaside Seashells Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small double bow using the Crumb Cake bakers twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot. I added a few Solid Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the star fish image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the top of the panel. I stamped the seaweed images form the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Pool Party Ink along the bottom of the panel, some stamped full strength and some stamped off once. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand, shells and seaweed images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap in Crumb Cake, Pool Party and Sahara Sand Inks.

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

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Foil

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. Is anyone doing anything fun this weekend? I actually have off today, YAY!!! I do have to work all day tomorrow though.

Today’s card is a quick one that I threw together using some old and new items. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Blue Foil Paper for my card today.

I started by embossing a Coastal Cabana panel of the Blue Foil Paper using my Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.

I cut a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the Seaside Seashells Dies. I only cut the larger seaweed part of the die. I snipped it using my Paper Snips. On a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock I stamped the seaweed image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. On a scrap or Soft Sea Foam cardstock I stamped the smaller seaweed image in Soft Sea Foam Ink. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in tuxedo Black Ink and the small scalloped sea shell in Blushing Bride Ink. On a panel of Shimmer White cardstock I stamped the sand dollar image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the shells and seaweed images out using my Seaside Seashells Dies. I cut the sentiment out using my Waves Dies.

I threaded 2 pieces of the Pool Party 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon through the die cut sentiment and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered the ribbon on the back of the card front using Tear & Tape. I arranged the shells and seaweed the way I wanted and adhered them using Glue Dots. I added a few Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels to the sentiment panel. I adhered the card front to a Basic Whtie card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the seaweed images and the seashell from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sea Foam Inks. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Coastal Cabana mat and then to the inside of the Basic White card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. On the envelope front I stamped the seaweed and seashells from the Friends are Like Seashells stamp set the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Waves of The Ocean Designer Series Paper 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Inspired Thoughts for Fun Fold Friday Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be at work all weekend.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Bundle, the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set along with the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I joined in with Creative Creases #18

I started by adhering a Blackberry Beauty DSP card front to a Cinnamon Cider mat and then to the front of a Rich Razzleberry card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock. I cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies.

I adhered a length of the Gold 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon to the card front then adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I adhered 2 panels of the Blackberry Beauty DSP to Early Espresso mats and then to the inside of the Rich Razzleberry card base. I scored & cut a panel of Rich Razzleberry cardstock as follows. First score the panel at 2 1/8″, 4 1/4″ & 6 3/8″. Make a little tick mark on the short edge 1 1/2″ up from the bottom. Cut from the tick mark to the upper left corner on a diagonal. The 2 1/8″ & 6 3/8″ score lines are valley folds and the 4 1/4″ score line is a mountain fold. I cut a panel of Early Espresso cardstock by making a tick mark on the short edge 1 1/4″ up from the bottom. Cut from the tick mark to the upper left corner on a diagonal. Cut the panel in 2″ intervals. I cut a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock by making a tick mark 1 1/8″ up from the bottom of the short edge. I cut from the tick mark to the upper left corner on a diagonal. Cut the panel in 1 7/8″ intervals. Emboss the 2 center Very Vanilla panels using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere the Very Vanilla panels to the Early Espresso mats. Adhered the layered panels to the Rich Razzleberry panel

Adhered the layered panel to the inside of the card base using Tear & Tape on the ends. Once it’s adhered it will look like the above picture.

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock stamp the larger floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry Ink, stamping off once. Stamp the smaller floral image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink, stamping off once. Stamp the bird image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once. Cut all the images out using the Beautiful Leaves Dies. Adhered the die cut images to the center embossed panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink and cut the sentiment out using the Tasteful Labels Dies. Adhered the sentiment to the top of the inner panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink, stamping off once, on the envelope front. I stamped the bird image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once, on the opposite side of the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Blackberry Beauty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Sailing Home 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 Mary Deatherage’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.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set. Nothing says summer to me like the beach.

My colors are from Sunday Stamps Challenge #261.

I started by embossing a Smoky Slate card front using the new Timber 3D Embossing Folder (available August 3rd). I adhered the embossed panel to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I masked the lighthouse with a sticky note and added color to the backgrounds using my Blending Brushes. I added Coastal Cabana Ink on the top of the panel and Smoky Slate Ink on the bottom of the image. I stamped the bird image from the Sailing Home stamp set on the top of the panel in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set next to the lighthouse image in Night of Navy Ink. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sand dollar image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink and the seashells in Calypso Coral Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the images out using the Seaside Shells Dies. I adhered the sand dollar and shells using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sand dollar image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the other seashells in Calypso Coral Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand dollar and seashell images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Smoky Slate Inks on the envelope front and envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Karen Finkle, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s amazing projects. Here is my card using this weeks theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle for my card today along with the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper.

I started by stamping the sand image from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom of a panel of the Sand & Sea DSP and adhering it to a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered 2 small panels of the Sand & Sea DSP to Sahara Sand Mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the 2 small matted panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. This DSP will be retiring on June 30th when the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog retires.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a strip of Sahara Sand cardstock, off centering it, and adhered the matted sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sand image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom corner of the panel. I stamped the seaweed images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on top of the sand. I colored some of the seaweed in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers. On another panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the starfish image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink and the seashell image in Blushing Bride Ink. I cut the images out using the Seaside Shells Dies and adhered them to the small panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sand image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the seaweed images in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the sand image and colored some of the seaweed in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the seaweed images in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the sand image . I adhered a panel of the Sand & Sea DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Shimmery Card

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Happy Mother’s Day!!! I hope you all have a relaxing day and maybe get some ‘YOU’ time in with some stamping or whatever you enjoy doing. I’m hoping not to work and get some stamping time in.

Today’s card is another version of yesterday’s card. We made this card at my card class last week. I gave everyone the option of either using DSP or the embossing folder. Here’s the alternative card.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set for this card along with the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.

I started by embossing a panel of the Shimmer White paper using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder and adhering it to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a small panel of Sand & Sea DSP I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom of the panel. Using my Delightful Tag Topper Punch, I cut the top of the panel. I stamped the starfish image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on either side of the sentiment. On a small panel of Blushing Bride cardstock I stamped the starfish and seashell images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink. Using my Delightful Tag Topper Punch I cut the top of the Blushing Bride panel.

I threaded a length of Blushing Bride 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon through the 2 tags and tied a bow with a piece of Linen Thread around the ribbon. I adhered the tags to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sand image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the shell images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped the sand image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set along the bottom front of a Basic White Medium Envelope in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the seashell images on the envelope front in Blushing Bride Ink. I adhered a panel of the Sand & Sea 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!!

I threaded a length of Blushing Bride 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon through the 2 tags and tied a bow with a piece of Linen Thread around the ribbon. I adhered the tags to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sand dollar to the side of the tags on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the shell images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on either side of the sentiment .

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Sailing Home for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s amazing projects. Here is my card using this weeks sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Bundle.

I started by adhering a panel of Sea & Sand Designer Series Paper to a Misty Moonlight card base, only around the edges, with Stampin’ Seal. Using my Layering Circles Dies, I cut a circle out of the center of the card front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the lighthouse image from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the starfish image from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink and colored it in using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Smooth Sailing Dies and my Seaside Shells Dies. I stamped the seaweed images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set, Just Jade on Just Jade card stock and Soft Sea Foam on Soft Sea Foam cardstock and cut the images out using my Seaside Shells Dies. I cut the larger seaweed image from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using my Smooth Sailing Dies. I stamped a couple of the small seashells from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set on scraps of Sand & Sea DSP and cut them out using the Seaside Shells Dies.

I adhered the lighthouse to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the bottom. On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front across the circle, using Glue Dots. I arranged the seaweed and shells on the side of the circle and adhered them down using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the top of a panel of Sand & Sea DSP and adhered it to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal. On the panel of Basic white cardstock I stamped the larger sailboat from the Sailing Home stamp set in Misty Moonlight and the smaller sailboat in Basic Gray Inks and cut them out using my Smooth Sailing Dies. I cut another circle from a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the cloud image from the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off twice, on the top of the circle. I stamped the bird image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I adhered the circle to the center of the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sailboats to the bottom of the circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, making sure to be able to see them through the card front.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Sand & Sea DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Mother’s Day

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did you have a nice Easter? My niece and her family and my nephew came over for brunch and by 3pm everyone was gone and I was able to take a nice walk and relax. I even got a little craft time in for me.

I have a quick card for you today using the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set. I’m happy to say that this set will be carrying over to the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #479.

My colors are from TGIF Challenge #310.

I started by adhering a panel of Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper to a Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a strip of Flirty Flamingo cardstock on the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped one of the seashell images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Pool Party Ink on 2 of the corners. I adhered the sentiment to a Pool party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Opal Rounds to the card card front.

On the inside I adhered a panel of Sand & Sea DSP to the Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Seal. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the 2nd sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink under the 1st. I stamped the seashell from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Pool Party Ink, full strength and stamped off, in the 2 corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the seashell image from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Pool Party Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Sand & Sea 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I’m actually off this weekend from both my jobs. We do have our ‘In Person’ team meeting virtually this Sunday. I always look forward to the meeting even if we can’t meet up with everyone in person.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle along with the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper.

I started by scoring and folded my 5 1/2″ X 11″ card base at 4 1/4″, 7 1/2″ & 10 3/4″. I placed the 1/4″ scored line to the bottom of my Paper Trimmer and the left side of the card base at the 5/8″ mark. I cut from the 4 1/4″ scored line (which is now at the 6 3/4″ mark on your trimmer) all the way down. I cut at the 4 1/4″ scored line down the 5/8″ and removed the strip. On the 1/4″ fold line, using my Paper Snips, I trimmed the small piece off the top so that the 1/4″ fold line measures 4 1/4″. I adhered a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive on the 1/4″ fold line and adhered the 2 3/4″ X 4 1/4″ panel of Seaside Spray cardstock.

For the front of the card I embossed a panel of Pearlescent Specialty Paper using the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder and I adhered it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies. I adhered it to the top of the panel using Glue Dots. I stamped the shells and starfish on scraps of the Sand & Sea DSP and cut them out using my Seaside Shells Dies. I stamped the sand dollar on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Sahara Sand Ink and immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I adhered panels of the Sea & Sand DSP to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed a panel of the Sand & Sea DSP using the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder for the inside front panel and adhered it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped one of the scallop shells in Blushing Bride Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside panel using Stampin’ Seal.

On the other 2 Basic White panels I stamped the sentiments from the Seaside View stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. On the larger panel I stamped the sand dollar and starfish images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom. On the center panel I stamped the scallop shell from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the bottom. I adhered the panels to the inside of the card base using Stampin’ Seal. I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front and the inside panels.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand dollar & star fish from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the scalloped shells in Blushing Bride and Seaside Spray Ink. I adhered a panel of Sand & Sea DSP, which I embossed using the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder, to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!
