Stampin’ Up! Beach Happy Sneak Peek!

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beach Happy stamp set from the upcoming 2019 Occasions Catalog to create a fun card to share with you today.

My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #367.

I started by adhering a panel from the Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ DSP (available Jan 3) to a panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL and then to a Sahara Sand card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the images from the Beach Happy photopolymer stamp set (available Jan 3) in Smoky Slate, Grapefruit Grove, Pool Party, Sahara Sand and Lemon Lime Twist inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I did use the Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blends to “cheat” a little on the umbrella image…I didn’t get it lined up perfectly when I stamped it, so I just colored in the white spots with my marker and it worked perfectly!  I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Whisper White card stock and then to the card front with SNAIL.

I adhered a small strip of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon with Tear & Tape Adhesive to the card front and then stamped the sentiment from the Beach Happy stamp set in Grapefruit Grove ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I cut the sentiment out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits Die and then adhered it with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the  card front.  I added three of the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots (available Jan 3) around the sentiment to finish the card front.

I stamped the palm tree images from the Beach Happy stamp set in Sahara Sand and Lemon Lime Twist inks 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.
