Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. 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 handsome projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders’ blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “For The Men/Boys”.  We can interpret this however we want.  My son’s birthday is next month so I made him a card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You Bundle along with the He’s The Man Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by embossing a Sahara Sand card front using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a strip of He’s The Man DSP to the side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the beer mug and foam images from the Stampin’ Up! Brewed For you Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink twice. I stamped the fill image from the Brewed For You stamp set over the beer mug images in Crushed Curry Ink. I cur the images out using the Brewed Dies. I stamped the sentiment and bubble image from the Brewed For You stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the Basic White panel. I cut the sentiment out using the All That Dies.

I adhered the first beer mug and foam die cuts using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the second beer mug and foam die cuts overlapping the first one using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Brewed for You stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the beer mug, foam and bubble images from the Brewed for You stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the fill image in Crushed Curry Ink over the mug image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sahara Sand mat and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the beer mug, foam and bubble images from Brewed for You stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the beer fill image in Crushed Curry Ink over the stamped mug image. I adhered a panel of He’s The Man DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today, I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some plans. I actually have today off since I worked both Monday and Tuesday for the end and beginning of the month’s bills. I’m so used to having Tuesday’s off and working on Wednesday’s that I lose track of what day it is. I’m still trying to wrap my head around March being here already. Before you know it, Spring and Summer will be here, my favorite seasons of the year.

Before I get started, today is a very special day. It’s my little fur baby, Jasmine’s 14th birthday. She’s been my side kick for the last 13 3/4 years following me everywhere I go and always happy to see me, I can’t imagine life without her. The best part is she doesn’t talk back and no student loans to pay. Happy Birthday my sweet baby.

When we got her in May of 2008
One of her favorite places to lay down
She loves our new patio as much as us
Her new favorite spot now

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo this week is Wearing O’ The Green.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper for my Clean and Layered card today. I was inspired by the tree and colors in the photo for my card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #170.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing a Bumblebee card front using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the left side of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front and a strip of Beauty of The Earth DSP over the panel towards the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the leaf image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the branches. I stamped the detail leaf image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink over the other leaf image. I stamped the splatter image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Bumblebee Ink around the tree image. I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Old Olive Ink next to the tree image. I adhered the artwork to a coordinating scalloped circle that I cut from a panel of Early Espresso cardstock using my Layering Circles Dies. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Old Olive Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the tree, leaf and splatter images from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set the same as I did for the card front on the bottom left of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bumblebee mat and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree, leaf and splatter images from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth 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!!

Here are the details:

You will begin to see the price change on paper pumpkin.com

beginning February 11, with the start of the March subscription period.

Shipping added based on order total at time of check out. 

Prepaid codes–both redeemed and unredeemed–purchased before the 1 March price change will maintain their full value. No additional payment will be required.

Stampin’ Up! Back On Your Feet CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and only 3 days till Christmas. I haven’t wrapped a thing, let alone shopped. My husband has done a lot of the shopping for us this year, I’m just not feeling up to it.

I have a quick fun card today using product from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Every once in a while, I like to pull things out I haven’t played with in a bit. Here’s my card today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Back on Your Feet Cling Stamp Set along with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #272.

My colors are from Inspire. Create. Color Challenge #106.

I started by embossing a Very Vanilla card front using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder and adhering it to a Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of In Good Taste DSP I stamped the sentiment from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Versamark Ink on the bottom. I immediately sprinkled it with my white embossing powder from the Embossing Powder Basics and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal. I colored a piece of White Bakers Twine using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Marker. Once it was dry, I wrapped it around the layered panel and tied a small bow. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sloth image from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I colored the image in using my Cinnamon Cider and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I added a couple Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the turtle image from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the sloth image from the Back on Your Feet stamp set in Early Espresso Ink and colored it using my Cinnamon Cider and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals for The Card Concepts.

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some plans.

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

I used the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set for my Mixed Media card. I was inspired by the Poinsettias in the photo along with the colors.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our Challenge #164. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the panel and then adhered the layered panel to a Thick Very Vanilla card base.

On a panel on Cherry Cobbler cardstock I stamped the poinsettia images from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Versamark Ink. I stamped 1 large, 1 medium and 2 small. I immediately sprinkled them with my Gold Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the images out using my Poinsettia Dies. On a panel of Garden Green cardstock I cut 2 of the largest poinsettias dies and embossing die using my Poinsettia Dies. I adhered the large and medium flowers together using a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure the petals alternated. I adhered the 2 small flowers together using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure the petal alternated. I adhered the layered small flowers to the large layered petals using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered 1 of the large Garden Green flowers to the back of the layered Cherry Cobbler flower using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut apart the other Garden Green flower using my Paper Snips and adhered the leaves where I thought they should go using Glue Dots. I adhered the layered flowers to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels in the center of the flower.

I cut a few of the sprigs dies from the Poinsettia Dies out of a panel of Gold Metallic Paper. I adhered them under the flower. On a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I tied a small bow using the Gold Simply Elegant Trim and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot. I adhered the sentiment over the bow using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. I had cut 4 of the tiny poinsettias from the Poinsettia Dies from the panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I adhered them together alternating petals using Glue Dots and adhered them on either side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a Pearl Basic Jewel to the center. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the poinsettia image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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! Forever Fern CAS

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. Happy November!!! How was everyone’s weekend? Did you get a lot of trick or treaters? We hit a high number of trick or treaters this year, 11. That’s 6 more than last year. Maybe there’s still hope that the kids will come down our street.

Today’s card is one of the cards we will be making tomorrow night at my class. I’m trying to make some CAS cards with a little extra touch. I pulled out a set from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. I think sometimes with the mini catalogs available we forget about some of our favorites from the annual catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set for my CAS card today.

I played along with Just Us Girls Wild-Card Challenge #608.

I started by stamping a panel of Basic White cardstock using 3 different leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Just Jade, Petal Pink and So Saffron Inks. I stamped the splotch image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Gray Granite Ink around the leaves.

I embossed the stamped panel using my Timber 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Gray Granite mat. I wrapped a piece of the Gray Granite Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack around the layered image and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Just Jade card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Gray Granite cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Gray Granite Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added an Elegant Faceted Gem to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Just Jade, Petal Pink and So Saffron Ink on the top and bottom of the panel. I stamped the splotch image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Gray Granite Ink around the leaf images. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gray Granite mat and then to the inside of the Just Jade card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? 33 years ago today on a cool rainy fall day, I married my best friend. It stopped raining just long enough for the ceremony and to get some outside pictures. You can actually see in some of our pictures the floods behind us (it had down poured the day and night before). Like many couples we’ve had our ups and downs, but mostly ups. Here’s to another 33 years together. He surprised me with a bike for our anniversary. He bought one for himself a while back and thought it would be fun bike riding together. I don’t know if he really knows how old I am and that I haven’t been on a bike since I was a teenager. Hopefully I can remember how to stay upright and not face down on the pavement. Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be at work all weekend between both jobs.

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! Blessings of Home Bundle along with the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper (both items will be available in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog) for my card today.

I started by scoring and folding a Pale Papaya card base at 1 3/4″, 4 1/4″ & 6 3/4″. The 1 3/4″ score line is a valley fold, the 4 1/4′ score line is a mountain fold and the 6 3/4″ score line is a valley fold.

I adhered 5 panels of the Heart & Home DSP to 5 Basic Gray mats.

I adhered the 5 layered panels to the Pale Papaya card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the largest floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Cling Stamp Set in Pale Papaya Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink over the floral image. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside Basic Gray mat.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the smaller floral image and the sentiment from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I colored the floral image in using my Just Jade, Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I added some Clear Wink of Stella in the flower centers. I cut the floral image our using my Flowers of Home Dies and fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips. I cut a few of the leaf dies from a panel of Garden Green cardstock using the Flowers of Home Dies. I cut a panel of Basic Gray cardstock using the Tasteful Labels Dies and then embossed the die cut using my Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I made a belly band for my card using a strip of Pale Papaya cardstock by wrapping it around the card and adhering it together. I wrapped a piece of Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon around the belly band and adhered it on the front. I adhered the leaf dies to the back of the floral die and adhered the floral die to the Basic Gray label die using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered artwork to the belly band. I added a Bumblebee Trinket by the flower and some Genial Gems on the card front.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small floral image from the Blessing of Home stamp set in Basic Gray Ink and colored it the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week and the weekend is right around the corner.

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

I used the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set for my Free Style Collage Card. I was inspired by the beautiful sunflower bouquet and the colors.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #160.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing a Smoky Slate card front using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. Using my Blending Brush, I brushed a little Smoky Slate Ink over the embossed panel to give it a little color. I adhered the card front to a Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Just Jade, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Succulent, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampn’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Sunflower Dies. I cut 5 of the sprig dies using the Sunflower Dies from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock. I cut the large leaf die from the Beautiful Leaves Dies from a panel of Garden Green cardstock.

I adhered the large Garden Green leaf to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I arranged the sunflowers the way I wanted them and adhered them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sprigs under the sunflowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the stems only. I made a triple loop bow using the Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon and adhered it to the center of the sunflowers using a Glue Dot. I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered it to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sunny Sentiments Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in 2 of the corners of the panel and colored them in the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set on the envelope front and flap in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the sunflowers in the same as I did for the card.

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

Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Friendship Monochromatic

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started out? I hope you are having a productive one.

I have a monochromatic card for you today. It’s a little different from my multicolor cards that I usually make, but I really like the way it came out. My team leader Amy made a black and white card last week using these pumpkins and I really liked the way it looked, so I thought I’d give it a try. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Bundle along with the Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from Just Add Ink Challenge #568.

I started by embossing a Basic Gray card front using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of Peaceful Place Specialty DSP to the bottom of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Black Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack around the card front and tied a bow.

Stampin’ Up! has this beautiful new Silver Foil Specialty Pack of paper with 3 different finishes in it. I cut the tall detailed pumpkin from the shiny piece using my Detailed Pumpkin Dies. I cut the smaller pumpkin from the darker panel using my Detailed Pumpkin Dies. On a panel of Smoky Slate cardstock I stamped the leafy pumpkin image from the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with Black Embossing Powder from the Basic Embossing Powders and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the embossed image out using my Detailed Pumpkin Dies. I adhered the pumpkins to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals under the bakers twine.

On a panel of Smoky Slate cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front, over the bakers twine, using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Smoky Slate card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pumpkin image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Gray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the pumpkin image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Peaceful Place Specialty 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 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.
