Stampin’ Up! By the Dock Birthday Card

I love to CASE (copy and selectively edit) other demonstrators’ cards or projects.  The Stampin’ Up! family is so creative.

But it’s also fun to CASE your own cards.

Today’s card was inspired by this card here I did back in February.

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock which I covered with a Night of Navy pattern from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper.

I then took a panel of Watercolor Paper and did a watercolor background using Coastal Cabana ink and a Water Painter.  I then matted this on Real Red cardstock.

I stamped the dock, boat, and seagulls from the By the Dock Stamp Set in Stazon ink.  I colored the dock in using Night of Navy ink and the boat using Real Red ink.  I adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the By the Dock Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies which I adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks for seeing my project today.


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Dockside Dies Just a Hello Card

Hello everyone!

For today’s card I decided to mix the Dockside Dies, specifically the oar die, with the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.

Here’s the thing, I’ve never been sailing.  I’m not sure if you need an oar, but figured they both were used with water and it would work.

My card starts off with Seaside Spray cardstock, although you can’t see it.  I then adhered a pattern from the Come Sail Away DSP on the front.

I used the Dockside Dies to cut out a bunch of oars from Night of Navy and Seaside Spray cardstock.  I lined these across a panel of Whisper White cardstock and then matted it on Night of Navy cardstock.

Tip:  Stampin’ Up!’s Grid Paper is a great tool!

If you’re adhering various images down and you want to make sure they’re all straight,  line your paper up to the grid and then use Washi Tape to mark a straight line.  Make sure the Washi Tape goes from one straight line to the other…

… and then just adhere your images along the line!

I then stamped the sentiment from the A Little Lace Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Night of Navy cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Birthday Card

This past weekend I reached out on Facebook for advice on how to color in the By The Dock images for today’s card.

There wasn’t a clear winner, so I decided to go in a different direction…
Directly stamp on watercolor paper and use an Aqua Painter to color them in.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  Next I took a panel of Balmy Blue cardstock and embossed it using the Corrugated Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Watercolor Paper and stamped the images from the By The Dock Stamp Set in Stazon Black ink.  I used an Aqua Painter to color in the images – Soft Suede for the dock, Crumb Cake for the boat, and very subtle Balmy Blue around them.

I then matted this on Soft Suede cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the By The Dock Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Soft Suede cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Watercolor Card

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

My card starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock.

I took a panel of Watercolor Paper and generously applied water using an Aqua Painter.  I added one layer of Coastal Cabana ink to it using the Aqua Painter, dried it with the Heat Tool, wet the paper again, and added more color.

By adding color, drying it, and adding more color, you get a nice layered look of color.

I then offset a panel of Soft Suede cardstock underneath it.

I then stamped the dock and birds in Soft Suede ink and boat in Early Espresso ink on Watercolor Paper.  I used my Aqua Painter, not too wet, to pull color out from the stamped image.  I cut these out using the coordinating Dockside Dies.

I also added a little Daffodil Delight ink to the bellies of the birds.

I then stamped the sentiment from the By The Dock Stamp Set in Early Espresso ink on a Crumb Cake banner.  I adhered all the images down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Hello Card

I love mixing product from the Annual Catalog with product from the new Jan-June Mini Catalog.

Today I paired the By The Dock Bundle (new) with the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper (annual catalog).

My card starts off Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then adhered a pattern from the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper over that.

I cut a banner from Crumb Cake cardstock and wrapped around some Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine on the bottom.

I used the By The Dock Stamp Set and stamped the oar in Soft Suede ink five times.  I cut them out using the coordinating Dockside Dies.  I adhered them down using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink and cut it out using the Layering Circles Dies.
