Stampin’ Up! Colorful and Seasonal Tides for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  It’s sketch week and I know all our ladies have made some beautiful projects for you.  Y’all be sure to hop thru all their blogs when you get done here! 🙂

Here’s our sketch…

I used kind of a plethora of goodies for this one – some available now and some next week!  I played with the Colorful Seasons stamp set and the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  Added in a little Color Theory DSP.  Those are the things coming next week.  From the current catalog – and continuing next year – I used the Seaside TIEF and some High Tide.  Take a look-see:

I started with a double layer mat – one in Berry Burst (avail 1 June) and the second in Dapper Denim.  The bottom panel of the card front is a piece of Dapper Denim from the Color Theory DSP Stack.  First I cut the scallops using the edgelit die in the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, then I ran it thru the Big Shot in the Seaside TIEF.

I stamped the sentiment from Colorful Seasons in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  And then I had to “fix” it with my Stampin’ Write Marker.  If you make this card – don’t be like me!  Cut the scallop.  Stamp the sentiment.  Then emboss it in the Seaside TIEF.  Will be a much quicker route, I promise! 🙂

Next up, I made the top panel – starting with a piece of Crushed Curry paper from the Color Theory DSP.  I used my 1 1/2″ Circle Punch to make a stencil and – on the bottom edge of the DSP, sponged a Calypso Coral “sun”.  I pulled off the stencil and then continued with my almost-dry Sponge Dauber to add a “halo” of Calypso Coral around the circle.  

Using the grasses and birds images from the High Tide stamp set, I added them in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I built the card front by first adding the stamped Crushed Curry panel with Liquid Glue.  Then I added a strip of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon – for the “beach” – with Liquid Glue.  Finally, I added the “ocean”.  

My chair is from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  First I stamped the Hardwood background image in Berry Burst on a piece of Berry Burst card stock, then cut the chair with the die from the Seasonal Layers.  I used Liquid Glue across the bottom of the chair and a few pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the chair and adhered it to the card front.  And the card front was done!

On the inside, I made another “sun” with my 1 1/2″ Circle Punch stencil in Calypso Coral on a Whisper White panel.  Then I added a second sentiment from Colorful Seasons in Tuxedo Black.

I double matted the panel on Dapper Denim and Berry Burst, then added it to my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Calypso Coral sun and some High Tide birds and grasses on the front…

…and then I added a little more of the Dapper Denim paper from the Color Theory DSP to the envelope flap.  Just to do a little something different, I embossed it in the Seaside TIEF before I added it to the flap!

Et Voila!  I love the adirondack chair in the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, don’t you?  I think all the pieces and parts came together to make a pretty little beachside sunset scene!  Hope you like!
