Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration bundle is an early release of the upcoming 2022-2023 Annual Catalog – so you can get it now! I used the wonderful pelican stamp and die from the bundle and I paired it with the beautiful Waves of the Ocean designer series paper. This paper is part of the Waves of the Ocean promotion and is still available while supplies last until May 2. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
My card was inspired by the current sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches #465. Here is the wonderful sketch:
I adhered a panel of Waves of the Ocean designer series paper to the front of a Pool Party card base with liquid glue. I cut a Pool Party Panel with the third smallest stitched rectangles dies and cut a small panel of Waves of the Ocean DSP with the bottom of the same die. I stamped two birds from the Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on the Pool Party die cut. and adhered the DSP die cut to the bottom. I embossed the layered die cut with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.
I stamped the pelican from the Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Basic White. I colored the image with Stampin’ Blends – Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Gray Granite and Daffodil Delight – and cut it out with the coordinating die. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on So Saffron. I cut it out with the label die from the Waves dies and looped a short length of linen thread through one end. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White. I stamped some birds around the sentiment and adhered the panel to a Waves of the Ocean DSP panel mat (isn’t it a fun look!). I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
I don’t usually decorate the envelopes, but I did stamp some birds and adhered a strip of DSP to the envelope flap for a simple coordinated look. I love that pelican stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration stamp set. It reminds me of a Florida dockside restaurant – I can hear the waves and seagulls!
