I used the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Shore stamp set to create my card for this weeks Fab Friday Sketch Challenge. I borrowed a little inspiration from the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog for this project. 🙂
Here is the sketch for Fab Friday 89.
The theme for my card was inspired by Cupcake Inspirations #363.
I started by stamping a few random starfish images from the Seaside Shore stamp set in Soft Sky ink on a panel of By the Shore DSP. I adhered the DSP panel to a panel of Dapper Denim card stock with SNAIL, then to a Mint Macaron card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I adhered two strips of Mint Macaron 3/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon to the card front with SNAIL, then I started stamping the tag. I colored the sentiment from the Seaside Shore stamp set with Mint Macaron, Dapper Denim and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Markers and I stamped it on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock. I added the bubble and seaweed images in Mint Macaron and Soft Sky inks around the edges, then cut the tag out with the second largest Lots of Labels Framelits die.
I cut a panel of Dapper Denim card stock with the largest Lots of Labels Framelits die, then adhered it to the stamped die cut so that one end had about 1/8″ showing. I trimmed the top of the layered tag off, then trimmed about 1/8″ off both sides of the Dapper Denim card stock. I adhered the tag to the card front with SNAIL.
I stamped the fish image from the Seaside Shore stamp set in Dapper Denim ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock, snipped it out and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few clear sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to finish it.
I stamped the images from the Seaside Shore stamp set in Dapper Denim, Soft Sky and Mint Macaron inks on a Very Vanilla panel inside the card.
