Good Morning! Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I made an undersea adventure Birthday Card featuring seahorses with the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Notions and Whale Done stamp sets.
We have a color challenge this week, and here is the color palette we are using:
I stamped some of the seaweed from the Stampin’ Up! Whale Done photopolymer stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink on the bottom of a panel of the fishes Whale of a Time 6×6 designer series paper panel. I adhered the panel to a Whisper White mat and then to the front of a Pacific Point card base with dimensionals.
I cut the seaweed with the Smooth Sailing Dies from Pretty Peacock, Just Jade and Pear Pizzazz card stock. I cut the Pear Pizzazz seaweed in half and just used the leafy side and arranged the seaweed and adhered it to the card front on top of the stamped seaweed with multipurpose liquid glue. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Notions cling stamp set in Just Jade ink on Pear Pizzazz card stock. I stamped the small seahorse from the Stampin’ Up! Whale Done stamp set next to the sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink. I cut the sentiment out with the Tasteful Labels Die and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.
I stamped the large seahorse from the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Notions stamp set using Pretty Peacock ink on Pear Pizzazz card stock. I fussy cut the seahorse with my paper snips and then covered it with Shimmery Crystal Effects to give it a shiny look. After it dried, I added a yellow rhinestone for the eye and popped it on the card front with dimensionals. You can see the shine and sparkle of the seahorse in the picture below.
I finished off the card front by adhering a bunch of sequins from the Woven Threads and Whale of a Time sequins all over the card front with glue dots.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Whale Done stamp set in Just Jade ink on a Whisper White panel. Next to the sentiment I stamped some seaweed in Pear Pizzazz ink after stamping off as well as a school of fish in Calypso Coral, Pacific Point, Just Jade and Gorgeous Grape. These fish resemble the fish swimming on the card front. I added a strip of the Whale of a Time DSP to the bottom before adhering the panel to the inside of the card.
