Good Morning! I used the pretty seahorse from the Sea Life Dies in the Stampin’ Up! Seascape bundle with the gorgeous Waves of the Ocean designer series paper for an encouragement and friendship card for my Facetime Live yesterday afternoon and the results were amazing! You can find the supplies I used in my video at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
My design was inspired by the sketch challenge in Freshly Made Sketches #525. Here’s the pretty card sketch:
I adhered a panel of Waves of the Ocean designer series paper to a panel of Coastal Cabana Foil with liquid glue. I adhered the layered panel to the front of a Pool Party card base. I cut a Granny Apple Green Waves of the Ocean paper with the Seaweed die from the Smooth Sailing dies and adhered it to the bottom of the DSP panel.
I cut a Calypso Coral Waves of the Ocean DSP panel with the coral die from the Stampin’ Up! Seascape bundle and curved some of the cuts up before adhering it to the card. I cut a panel of Pool Party Shimmer paper with the Seahorse die from the Stampin’ Up! Seascape bundle and adhered it to the card front with cut up pieces of dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Encircled in Friendship cling stamp set in Pacific Point ink on a Pool Party panel and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die. I frayed some White ribbon and adhered it to the back with a length of Pool Party ribbon. I adhered the label and ribbons to the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card with Night of Navy and Coastal Cabana rhinestones.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the seaweed from the Stampin’ Up! Seascape cling stamp set in Granny Apple Green on a Basic White panel. I stamped the coral in Calypso coral and the sentiment in Pacific Point. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Waves of the Ocean DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Waves of the Ocean designer series paper is beautiful and versatile enough to be used for different ocean themed dies like I did for this card. The swirls of color add depth and texture to the die cuts, like they do for any underwater or ocean background. The Stampin’ Up! Seascape bundle is just one of the many beautiful stamp sets and bundles that go well with this DSP. And it’s wonderful that it’s on sale this month with the Savings are in Bloom promotion!
