Stampin’ Up! Beach Happy Thanks Card

The Beach Happy Stamp Set caught my eye in the Occasions Catalog right from the start.
Specifically, the example card they made on page 37.

I finally got a chance to CASE (copy and selectively edit) it.
I’m sad to say the Beach Happy Stamp Set will be retired after the Occasions Catalog.

My card starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock.  I then matted a panel of Soft Suede cardstock on Whisper White cardstock.

I then cut out a panel of Watercolor Paper using the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I did a watercolor background using an Aqua Painter and Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake, and Soft Suede ink.

Once the watercolor paper was dry, I stamped the palm tree trunk in Soft Suede ink.  I stamped the palm leaves in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I stamped the sentiment in Coastal Cabana ink on Whisper White cardstock, adhered a piece of Burlap Ribbon underneath it which I roughed up a bit, and added a Tropical Element next to it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Beach Happy Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop challenge is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card today starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock.  I then took a panel of Bermuda Bay cardstock and embossed it using the Seaside Embossing Folder and then matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out a square and stamped the outline image from the Beach Happy stamp set in Memento Black ink.  I inked up the umbrella image in Coastal Cabana ink and the beach chair and water in Bermuda Bay ink.

I used the Under the Sea Thinlits to cut out two fishing nets from Crumb Cake cardstock and adhered them under the square.  I did a little trimming to get the look I wanted.  I also used the same thinlits to cut out the sand dollar.  I cut out two in order to adhere a second star over the first to make it more 3D.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set in Coastal Cabana ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Beach Happy Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a combined hop with the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  Happy hopping!!

 

 

 

My card starts off with Flirty Flamingo cardstock which I embossed using the Seaside Embossing Folder.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Beach Happy Stamp Set to create my scene.  I stamped the outline of the chair, umbrella, and palm tree trunks in Memento Black ink.

You’ll notice that the palm tree trunk is shaped to go one way.  But because it’s a photopolymer stamp, you can just maneuver it on your block to bend any which way, like I did today.

I stamped the umbrella in Mango Melody and the chair in Flirty Flamingo ink.  I stamped the sand in Crumb Cake ink (stamping off first).

I stamped the palm branches in Old Olive ink.  I stamped the one on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock, fussy cut it out, and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then snuck a piece of Vellum cardstock underneath the Whisper White and stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink on Crumb Cake cardstock, adhering it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!
