Stampin’ Up! Waterfront Beach Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Waterfront stamp set to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop today.  We’ve got a sketch challenge this week and this is what I created for it.

Here is the sketch that we’re using this week:

My card also works for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #TTTC029.  I went right down the middle.

I started by embossing a panel of Pool Party card stock with then Seaside Embossing Folder.  I adhered the panel with the embossed side down to a panel of Dapper Denim card stock with SNAIL.  I wrapped a strand of Linen Thread around the panel twice, tied a bow, then adhered the panel to a Crumb Cake card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the images from the Waterfront photopolymer stamp set in Pool Party, Dapper Denim (stamped on scrap paper once for the water image), Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Calypso Coral, Wild Wasabi and Daffodil Delight (masked off the land and water with a Post-It Note before stamping) inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock.

I cut the image out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits die and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel next to the sentiment to finish the card front.

I stamped the images from the Waterfront stamp set in Crumb cake, Soft Suede, Wild Wasabi and Pool Party inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.
