Stampin’ Up Seaside Notions for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week? Ready or not, which I’m assuming most of us are ready, the weekend is here.  Has anyone made any plans?  I’ll be at work this weekend, we’re having a bucket sale for the Children’s Miracle Network.  You make a donation by buying a bucket and almost everything you can fit in the bucket you get 20% off.   I’m sure it will be a busy weekend there.

For today’s card, I’ve seen this one done a few time using a circle.  I’ve decided to be a little different and use a square turned diamond.  Here’s my card.

My card was able to join in with a couple challenges.  First off is The Library Challenge

Next is the Stampin’ Up Only Challenge #228: New Catalog Favorites

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #232 “Anything Goes”

I started with a Pear Pizzazz card base and scored it at 4 1/4″ and 8 1/2″.    I adhered 2 panels of Petal Pink Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the card front.  I opened my card base and placed the 2″ square die from the Layering Squares Dies on the shorter end score line having the 2 corners on the score line and cut it out.

I stamped the Coral, Seahorse and Shells from the Stampin’ Up Seaside Notions Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on scrap pieces of Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I colored everything in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Purple Posy, Seaside Spray, Smoky Slate and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut all the pieces out using my Paper Snips.

I wrapped a piece of Flax Ribbon around the top portion of the card front and tied a knot.  I adhered all the Coral, Shells and Seahorse where I wanted them on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a 2″ square out or Petal Pink cardstock using the Layering Squares Dies.  Using the layered square just smaller than the 2″ I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock out and stamped it with the sentiment from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I cut the scalloped square out using the Layering Squares Dies that is a hair larger that the Whisper White square out of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White square to the Pear Pizzazz scalloped square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then adhered it to the Petal Pink square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I lined up the cut out square with the card base area that was cut out and adhered the square to the inside section of the card base using Glue Dots.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the sentiment panel.

On the inside I stamped the sand and seahorse from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the sand along the bottom of the Whisper White panel stamping off once and the seahorse on the side of the panel.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front of the envelope with the sand and seahorse from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Subtle 6 X 6 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!!  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

What’s the old saying? Variety is the spice of life? At Paper Pumpkin, we like to mix things up and keep our customer’s crafting experience fresh and fun.

Stampin’ Up Seaside Notions For Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month and you know what that means, it’s time for another Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop. The 2nd Tuesday of every month this amazing group of ladies put together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see some awesome projects. This month our theme is ‘CELEBRATE SUMMER’. We can interpret this any way we would like to.  I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with.  If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders , welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by.

For today’s card I chose the Stampin’ Up Seaside Notions Cling Stamp Set to use.  Nothing says summer to me more than seashells and waves.  Here’s my card.

I played along with the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #342.  They had a Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  I went right across the top.   Here’s their challenge.

I started by stamping the seahorse from the Seaside Notions stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of So Saffron Vellum from the Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I then fussy cut the seahorse using my Paper Snips.  I stamped the 3 different seashells from the Seaside Notions stamp set in VersaMark Ink on scraps of Petal Pink, Pool Party and Purple Posy cardstock.  I sprinkled them with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set them using my Heat Tool.  I fussy cut all the shells out using my Paper Snips.  I cut the seaweed out from the Smooth Sailing Dies in Pear Pizzazz cardstock and Old Olive Vellum cardstock.  I cut the coral out in Petal Pink Vellum cardstock from the Under The Sea Dies.  I cut the sand dollar out of Whisper White cardstock using the Under The Seas Dies.  Last I cut the school of fish out from the Under The Sea Dies in Calypso Coral cardstock.

Using the 3rd largest Layering Circle Dies, I cut the circle out of the card front and the card base.  I embossed the card front using the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered all the elements to the card front using Glue Dots, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Fine Tip Glue Pen or Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Doing the collage part on the bottom was fun, but when it came to the school of fish on the top, I don’t know what I was thinking.  The Fine Tip Glue Pen really came in handy for them along with my craft tweezers. I added a few Clear Epoxy Droplets above the seahorse.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sand image from the Seaside Notions stamp set on the bottom of the Whisper White panel in Sahara Sand Ink stamping off once.  I took the negative piece where I cut the school of fish and used that as a stencil and sponged the fish on top of the sentiment in Calypso Coral Ink using a Sponge Dauber.  I added a couple more shells that I had embossed and fussy cut on the bottom of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the sand image from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink across the bottom front of the envelope and the bottom of the envelope flap.  I stamped the seahorse from the Seaside Notions stamp set on the side of the envelope front.  I stamped the shells from the Seaside Notions stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap in Petal Pink, Pool Party and Purple Posy Inks.
