Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront Happy Day Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront stamp set is another one of the photopolymer watercolor stamp sets that create wonderful landscapes. This one has some angled stamps that are wonderful for shore scenes. There are no sentiments in the set, so I used the Many Messages cling stamp and Messages die for my sentiment – the scene is perfect for a smaller sentiment. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered three strips of In Good Taste rustic wood grained designer series paper to the front of a Coastal Cabana card base. I embossed a panel of Soft Suede with the Macrame embossing folder and adhered it to the card front.

I stamped the angled ocean stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront stamp set in Pacific Point on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sky stamp from the stamp set in Balmy Blue on top of the ocean and the angled shoreline in Sahara Sand under the ocean. I stamped the spatter in Sahara Sand over the sand and I stamped the sea oats in Soft Suede. Finally, I stamped the birds from the Mountain Air photopolymer stamp set in Basic Gray in the sky. I adhered the panel to a Pacific Point mat and wrapped a length of linen thread around the panel and made a bow.

I popped the stamped panel onto the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Many Messages stamp set in Soft Suede on Balmy Blue card stock and cut it out with the Messages die. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals over the linen thread.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sea oats from the Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront stamp set in Soft Suede on a Basic White panel. I adhered another strip of In Good Taste DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront stamp set is fun for making artistic ocean landscapes. And I love the little sentiment from the Many Messages stamp because any day by the shore is a happy day!
