Shake a little Tide with SIP#18

By | October 16, 2015

Happy Friday! It’s a good day for me as I’m on vacation today! I plan to prepare for my Sunday Stampers Group and start working on some holiday cards for some special people. Last night I did another DIY workshop at Home Depot and learned about making a mosaic mirror, it’s given me a few ideas. Now on to some card making . . .

Today’s card is for the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #18.  As soon as I saw the sketch I knew a shaker card was in order, but what should I do?  After looking through my stamp sets I decided to get out a set I have not used for a while, By the Tide, it reminded me of the long weekend at the shore with my niece and nephew this summer.


My card starts with some Watercolor Paper and heat embossing. The shell, fish and seahorse are heat embossed with Black Stampin Embossing powder, while I used White Stampin Embossing powder on the seaweed. Using my Aqua Painter and a little watered down ink (pressed onto the inside lid from the ink pad) I created the background with the seaweed and colored the other items with a variety of colors (Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Bermuda Bay and Crumb Cake). The shell and seahorse are adhered with glue dots and dimensionals were used on the fish. To create the shaker I cut a piece of fun foam (from the craft store) a little smaller than the Bermuda Bay cardstock and ran them through the Big Shot together using a Circles Collection Framelit.  Next I adhered a piece of Window Sheet to the Bermuda Bay with Fuse Adhesive.

Here is how I layered the card, base of Very Vanilla (4.25″x11″, scored at 5.5″ for a top folding card), piece of Bohemian Designer Series Paper, Watercolor paper with Seaweed and creatures from the sea, fun foam, filled the circle with clear glitter and topped with the Bermuda Bay cover.  The sentiment is from the Boys will be Boys stamp set and adhered with Fuse.



Thank you for stopping by, hope you liked the card. Don’t forget to check out Stamp Ink Paper blog.
