So Many Shells for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop

My share for today uses the Stampin’ Up! So Many Shells stamp set.  We have a Celebrate Summer theme this month, and shells scream the beach and the beach screams summer to me!  We’re glad you joined us and I hope you’ll take the time to hop around and check out all of the other beautiful creations.  

Stampin' Up! So Many Shells-Cardiology by Jari

I started with a water color wash on water color paper using Pool Party and Crumb Cake inks.  Once it was completely dry, I adhered it to a panel of Crumb Cake with liquid glue.  A length of Burlap Ribbon was adhered then with some Tear & Tape Adhesive.  

The So Many Shells set has 4 shell images with two-step stamps.  It also has 10 sentiments and you can find it on page 38 of the Annual Catalog.  For the sea urchin and the scallop shell, I used Crumb Cake and Pool Party inks, and for the conch shell, I used Crumb Cake and Powder Pink inks.

I fussy cut the shells with my Paper Snips, then dry fitted them onto the front to make sure I had room for my sentiment. Next, the sentiment was stamped in Crumb Cake directly onto the art panel.  A length of Linen Ribbon was wound around several times, then secured to the front with Glue Dots and I added the shells with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Three of the lightest Dapper Denim Glitter Enamel Dots were  added for some bling, then the art panel was popped ont the Whisper White card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My inside sentiment was stamped in Crumb Cake onto a Whisper White panel, and then I added a couple more shells from So Many Shells that I had left over.  (I created several when I was playing around with the coloring on the 2-step stamps!)

A complete list of supplies needed to create this card as well as card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.
