Enjoy the simple moments…

This week I have mixed things up a bit by using the image from one stamp set and the sentiment from another. The two sets come from the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration Catalogue and you can get either one FREE when you spend $90 (AU) or spend $180 (AU) and get both for FREE

How to make my card..

Product required-

  • By the Bay stamp set 149739
  • Home to Roost149736
  • Early Espresso cardstock – Card base 14.5 x 21 cm, scoured at 10.5 cm & banner 9.7 x 1 cm
  • Pool Party cardstock – mat 14 x 10 cm & a small piece for under the banner 10.7 x .5 cm
  • Crumb Cake cardstock – card front 13.7 x 9.7 cm
  • watercolour paper 8 x 8cm
  • Very Vanilla cardstock – insert 14 x 10 cm
  • Stampin’ Pads – Pool Party, Balmy Blue, Smokey Slate, Daffodil Delight & Calypso Coral
  • Stazon Black
  • Aqua Painter
  • Stitched Shapes Framelits – 2nd largest circle
  • White Embossing Powder, VersaMark, Embossing Buddy, Heat Gun

How to-

  • Watercolour Paper – stamp seagulls all over using Stazon ink.
  • Loosely colour the image with inks using Aqua Painter
  • Cut using the Stitched Framelit circle
  • Stamp the seagulls also onto the Crumb Cake cardstock with the Crumb Cake ink.
  • Emboss the sentiment onto the Early Espresso banner with the White Embossing Powder and heat set.
    TIP: Don’t cut your Banner down to above measurements until after Embossing. I use a Post-it Note to help like a handle when positioning under the Trimmer so that I can get a narrow strip.
  • Adhere the Pool Party Strip/Banner to back of the Banner peeking out a little at the bottom. Attach Mini Dimensionals to the underneath of banner.
  • Adhere card together.
