Stampin’ Up! By the Bay for Sunday Stamps

I used the Stampin’ Up! By the Bay stamp set from the upcoming 2019 Sale-a-bration Catalog to create a clean and simple card for the Sunday Stamps color challenge this week.

Here are the colors for Sunday Stamps SSC195.  Don’t tell…but I used a little touch of green in my design.  😉  Be sure to stop by the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the other design team members created and to play along too!

I started by embossing a panel of Balmy Blue card stock with the Pinewood Planks Embossing folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to the front of a Balmy Blue card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the image from the By the Bay stamp set (Sale-a-bration item available Jan 3) in StazOn Jet Black ink on a panel of Watercolor Paper and I used an Aqua Painter along with So Saffron, Balmy Blue, Gray Granite, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze and Pear Pizzazz inks to watercolor the image.  Once the image dried completely, I cut it out with one of the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (available Jan 3) and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the By the Bay stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a panel of So Saffron card stock and then punched the end of the panel with the Banner Triple Punch.  I adhered a looped strand of Linen Thread to the back of the banner with Glue Dots and then adhered the banner to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a silver pearl from the Metallic Pearls pack to finish the card front.

I stamped the bird image from the By the Bay stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock to finish the inside of the card.

You can see the list of supplies, including card stock cuts, used to create this card at the very bottom of this blog post.
