Stampin’ Up! Alcohol + Inks + Sea Life Dies

Good day Stampin’ Friends! It’s Labor Day… for some that means being home from their paying job & doing projects with the family (labor?) and for others it means working their paying job… whatever you are doing today, may it be productive or whatever it is you need it to be. Just be safe.

Today’s card is a mix of several dies and a wonderful background created with 99% alcohol on Vellum + re-inkers. The re-inkers were Night of Navy & Coastal Cabana. I began by cutting a full sheet of Vellum in fourths. This meant they were each a bit larger than need & could easily cut down afterwards. I spritzed with the 99% alcohol then added drops of re-inkers and moved the drops around by picking up the Vellum. If I wanted more movement I spritzed again. This was set aside to dry on its own. If puddles occurred I dabbed them with a paper towel. Once dry I cut it down to 4 x 5 1/4 and mounted it on a Basic White panel using Stampin’ Seal.

  • The seaweed was die cut from Pear Pizzazz card stock with the Smooth Sailing Dies.
  • The seashell was stamped with stamped off Cinnamon Cider ink on a scrap of Expressions in Ink DSP
  • The fish was die cut from Gold Foil with the Sea Life Dies
  • Each was added to the Vellum panel with liquid glue, except the seashell, which was attached with dimensionals
  • Artistic Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins were added for a bit of sparkle.
  • The entire panel got dimensionals and attached to the Pacific Point card base

For the inside I used the Friends are Like Seashells stamp set: the ‘sand’ was stamped with Crumb Cake ink and the starfish with Cinnamon Cider ink (stamped off) on a Basic White panel, then added to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

For the Basic White Medium envelope, I added more of the Expressions In Ink DSP to the flap and that was it.

Fun card, right? And something different from the many Christmas cards I’ve been showing. 😉

If you do not have a demonstrator and need an Annual 2021 Catalog OR Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog, please reach out to me – happy to send one to you.
