Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration Card with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration bundle to make a friendship card for my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. This bundle is an early release from the upcoming 2022 – 2023 Annual Catalog and is currently part of the Waves of the Ocean Collection going on now. I also used the beautiful Blue Foils and Waves of the Ocean for my card. You can find the supplies I used in my video at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the link to the Facebook Live video from yesterday. I also posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel and you can view it here if you prefer. Here it is:

I adhered a Calypso Coral panel of the beautiful Waves of the Ocean designer series paper to the front of a Pacific Point card base. I stamped the wave from the Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration cling stamp set in Night of Navy on another panel of the DSP. I adhered adhesive sheets to the back of two foil panels and cut out the two waves dies, the two point wave from Night of Navy foil and the three point wave from Coastal Cabana foil.

I peeled off the adhesive backing and adhered the Night of Navy foil die cut wave over the stamped wave. Then I did the same with the Coastal Cabana die cut wave. I fussy cut the wave around the stamping and die cuts and adhered the panel to the card front with dimensionals.

The clouds from the Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration bundle are wonderful pillowy two piece die cuts. I cut the background and detailed dies from Basic White – a set for the large cloud and two sets of small clouds. I adhered the detailed dies to the background clouds with liquid glue and adhered them to the card front using glue dots for the small clouds and dimensionals for the large one. I die cut three birds from the Night of Navy foil and adhered them to finish the card front.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the beautiful sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration stamp set in Night of Navy on the bottom of a Basic White panel. I stamped the pretty pelican in Memento Tuxedo Black on the side and colored it with So Saffron, Crumb Cake and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the seagull above the pelican and trimmed the bottom in Calypso Coral Waves of the Ocean DSP before adhering the panel to the inside of the card.

The Blue Foils make the wave stunning and dramatic, and it’s so easy to do with the dies in the Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration bundle. And the sentiments in the bundle are wonderful and inspiring too, so I highly recommend taking a close look at these products.
