Good Saturday Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Sea Turtle photopolymer stamp set is a wonderful set with gorgeous sea turtle images. It is a reversible stamp set so you can stamp using both sides of the stamp. I only used the detailed side of the large sea turtle and paired it with the wonderful By The Bay 6″ x 6″ specialty designer series paper. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I adhered a panel of By The Bay 6″ x 6″ specialty designer series paper to the front of a Mint Macaron card base with liquid glue. I love the swirling gold foil fish!
I stamped the large turtle from the Stampin’ Up! Sea Turtle stamp set in Mint Macaron ink on Soft Sea Foam and fussy cut it with my paper snips. I wanted to give it a little more definition, so I followed the example of my Inkin’ Krew Teammate Carol Buckalew and added some shading with watercolor pencils (you can find her Sea Turtle card here). I used the Old Olive pencil to color the entire turtle, coloring it heavier around the edges. I used the Early Espresso pencil to color the eyes and all the outside edges of the stamped Mint Macaron sections. Then I used the Blender Pen to smooth the colors. The slight shading is an extra step, but it really brings the turtle to life!
I stamped the sentiment from the Friends are like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on Basic White and cut it out with the large Stylish Shapes dies. I trimmed the end and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue, adding some sea glass embellishments to the bottom of the label. I adhered the sea turtle to the card with dimensionals.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the seaweed from the Stampin’ Up! Sea Turtle stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink (first and second generation stamping) in the corner of a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment in Sahara Sand ink and trimmed the bottom with a strip of By The Bay 6″ x 6″ specialty DSP before adhering the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! Sea Turtle stamp set is a pretty set and goes well with other beach themed stamp sets. Check it out!
