Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Waves Of Inspiration bundle is an early release from the upcoming 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and boy is is gorgeous! I made this simple birthday card to introduce you to the bundle and you can check out all the details of the promotion because this bundle is available today! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I used sponge daubers to apply Pacific Point and Night of Navy inks to the large wave stamp in the Stampin’ Up! Waves Of Inspiration cling stamp set. I applied Pacific Point to the entire stamp and Night of Navy to the bottom and stamped the image on a Basic White panel. I used sponge daubers to apply additional ink to the wave, Bermuda Bay to the top part of the wave, blending into Pacific Point and Night of Navy towards the bottom.
I used another sponge dauber to lightly ink the sky with Balmy Blue ink. I stamped the bird from the Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration stamp set in Basic Gray three times in the sky. I adhered the panel to a Night of Navy mat. I cut the clouds from Basic White using the Waves Dies and adhered them to the panel with dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Waves Of Inspiration stamp set in Night of Navy on a strip of Balmy Blue and cut it out with the label from the Waves Dies. I looped Linen thread through the ends of the label and adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals. I pulled the linen thread around to the back of the card and secured the ends in the back with tape. I accented the label with a rhinestone and adhered the panel to the front of a Balmy Blue card base with dimensionals.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the wave again in Pacific Point on a Basic White strip. I used sponge daubers to apply Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy inks to the strip so that it would resemble the ocean on the front of the card. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Waves Of Inspiration stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the bird in Basic Gray and adhered the ocean strip to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
This is just a simple example of using the pretty Stampin’ Up! Waves Of Inspiration bundle for a birthday card. Be on the lookout for more cards made with this gorgeous bundle and the other exclusive items in the Waves of the Ocean Collection.
