Stampin’ Up! Seaside Shore Ahoy There

I used the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Shore and Suite Sentiments stamp sets to create my card to share with you today.


Stampin' Up! Seaside Shore Cardiology by Jari


I was inspired by the sketch over at Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #89

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #89


I started with a panel from By The Shore DSP and dry embossed it with the Seaside Textured Impresions Folder. It was then adhered to a panel of Soft Sky card stock.

Next, I added the length of Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon with Tear & Tape Adhesive, wrapping it around my layered panel.  Then the next pattern from By The Shore was lined up and adhered to the right of the ribbon.  On a panel of Very Vanilla, I stamped the sea grass image from Seaside Shore in Soft Sky ink.  The anchor was then stamped in Dapper Denim on top of the grass. My next step was to die cut the panel with one of my Stitched Shapes circle dies. Two more scalloped circles were cut with my Layering Circles Framelits dies to adhere to my anchor panel.

 Ahoy There, also from Seaside Shore, was stamped in Calypso Coral ink onto a panel of Very Vanilla and snipped out with my Paper Snips.  It was attached to the anchor panel with Dimensionals, a knot was adhered with glue dots and both of the panels popped onto the front of the Calypso Coral card stock base with Dimensionals.

I stamped a sentiment from Suite Sentiments for my inside panel and finished the bottom edge with more of the By the Shore DSP found on the front of the card.  

And because I really love this paper, I decided to decorate the outside flap of my Very Vanilla envelope with another pattern from the pack!

Seaside Shore for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers Blog Hop


It’s Thursday, and we’re back for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop!  Welcome to another color challenge. I’m sharing Seaside Shore from Stampin’ Up! this week.   Here are the colors we’re all using, aren’t they lovely together?


Happy Stampers Color Challenge

Here is my Seaside Shore card:

Seaside Shore

I pulled out my By the Shore Designer Series Paper and found all of the colors for our challenge this week, so I got busy deciding just which of the papers to use!  I love all of them in this grouping, so it took a while.  I also pulled out the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder(TIEF for short) and did some dry embossing on the two patterned pieces.  


Seaside Shore

My anchor and sentiment banner from Seaside Shore, were stamped in Dapper Denim onto Very Vanilla card stock and both fussy cut with Paper Snips  The fish is also from Seaside Shore and stamped in Calypso Coral on Very Vanilla and fussy cut.  Behind the banner I added some 5/8″ Mini Striped Mint Macaron ribbon, and also used the Calypso Coral Thick Baker’s Twine for the anchor line.

For the inside, I chose the other sentiment from Seaside Shore and then stamped a few of the starfish in Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral inks. 

A list of the products used in making my card today will be at the end of my post.  



Now, hop on over to see what Kristi has created for us today.

Stampin’ Up! Seaside Shore for the Happy Stampers




Welcome to our hop!  My share today is from the new Seaside Shore stamp set found in the 2016-2017 Stampin’ Up! annual catalog.  I hope you love it as much as I do!  

Seaside Shore




Here is our sketch:



Isn’t Seaside Shore such a fun new stamp set?  I also used the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets to help with the “water”.  


Seaside Shore


I started by stamping the bubbles and sea grass images from Seaside Shore onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock in Soft Sky and Mint Macaron inks.  The sentiment, also from Seaside Shore, is stamped in Calypso coral.  Then, I backed this panel with a panel of Soft Sky.  I used Calypso Coral and Dapper Denim to stamp the fish, then fussy cut them to add later with dimensionals.  

My card base is Dapper Denim with a panel of By the Shore DSP snailed to it.  I die cut a strip of Dapper Denim with one of the Swirly Scribbles dies and added it with some liquid glue, then stamped on a few starfish with Dapper Denim ink. 


Seaside Shore


For the inside Very Vanilla panel, I repeated some of the images from the front with the same ink colors and then framed it with a panel of Soft Sky before attaching to the Dapper Denim base.    Products and card stock cuts are at the end of this post.  




Now it’s time to head over to see what Kristi has in store for us today.  We love to hear from you, so make sure and leave comments along your way!  You will find a full list of the Happy Stampers below the arrow in case you want to hop around again!  Enjoy!
