By the Seashore Thank You in River Rock and Always Artichoke

I’m starting my post today with a quick announcement.  The winner of the Snow Much Fun stamp set from my January ordering give away is:  Maggie C!  Congratulations, I’ll be dropping your stamp set in the mail this afternoon.  And see my note below to find out how you can be entered to win a free stamp set in February!  And sorry for the long post today, lots of new stuff to tell you about.


Today I’m sharing a card that I made for the Mojo Monday 278 Sketch Challenge using the By the Seashore stamp set from Stampin’ Up.

By the Seashore

Here are the products that you will need to create this card:

  • By the Seashore (126530 wood, 126532 clear)
  • Blooming with Kindness (126420 wood, 126422 clear)
  • Circles #2 Originals Die (114526)
  • 1-3/4″ Circle Punch (119854)
  • Large Scallop Edgelits (127019)
  • Bitty Banners Framelits Dies (129267)
  • Always Artichoke 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon (121000)
  • Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack (117157)
  • Always Artichoke Classic Stampin’ Pad (126972)
  • River Rock Classic Stampin’ Pad (126977)
  • Always Artichoke Card Stock (105119)
  •  River Rock Card Stock (108640)
  • SNAIL Adhesive (104332)
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430)

I started with an Always Artichoke card base cut to 5-1/4″ x 10-1/2″ and scored at 5-1/4″.  Then I cut a panel of River Rock card stock to 5″ x 5″ and I stamped the seashell images from the By the Seashore stamp set in River Rock ink randomly on the panel.  I wrapped a piece of Always Artichoke Seam Binding around the center and adhered it with SNAIL, then adhered the panel to the card front with SNAIL.  Next, I cut a panel of the Neutrals DSP Stack to 3-3/4″ x 4″ and I used the Large Scallop Edgelits Die to trim the side of the panel.  Then I cut a 3″ x 3″ panel of River Rock card stock and stamped the seashell images in Always Artichoke ink on the panel and adhered it with SNAIL to a panel of Always Artichoke card stock that I’d cut to 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″.  Then I cut two flags from Always Artichoke card stock using the larger Bitty Banners Framelits die, I cut the flags in half and adhered them to the back of the layered panel.  Next, I adhered the decorated panel to the DSP panel with SNAIL and adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To finish the card, I cut  a circle from River Rock card stock using the Circles #2 Originals Die, stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Blooming With Kindness stamp set in Always Artichoke ink, then stamped the shell in River Rock ink over the sentiment.  I adhered the sentiment to a 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch from Always Artichoke card stock, then I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front using SNAIL on the left side and a Stampin’ Dimensional on the right.
