Thinking of You – OceanFront

I used the Stampin’ Up! OceanFront Stamp Set along with the On The Horizon Stamp Set to create this card to share with you. Both stamp sets are in the January to June Mini-Catalog.

Let’s Get Started

  • Fold your card base in half on the score line, burnish with Bone Folder.
  • Using the Bark Embossing Folder, emboss your Coastal Cabana panel and adhere to card base with your adhesive of choice.
  • Using the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Die cut 3-1/4” x 4-3/4” Basic White panel using your Stampin Cut & Emboss Machine.
  • Stamp the sky image from the OceanFront Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink to the top of the white panel you just cut out.
  • Stamp the ocean stamp in Coastal Cabana ink under the sky.
  • Stamp the sand stamp with Sahara Sand ink under the ocean 2 to 3 times to obtain the amount of sand desired. Re-ink the stamp each time and be careful not to overlap as it makes the sand too dark.
  • Using the dotted stamp, stamp it over the sand. Stamp 2 to 3 times before re-inking.
  • Using the bird stamp from the On The Horizon Stamp Set, stamp the birds in the sky with Early Espresso Ink.
  • Stamp the tall grass from the On The Horizon Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.
  • Wrap Linen Thread around your stamped panel 2 or 3 times and tie into a bow.
  • Adhere panel to card front with Dimensionals.
  • Stamp you greeting onto a scrap of Basic White in Early Espresso Ink. Cut out with a Rectangle Die. Adhere to card front with Stampin Seal and a Dimensional.
  • Apply 3 Faux Sea Glass Shapes to card front as desired.
  • Card Inside – Stamp greeting on Basic White Cardstock in Coastal Cabana Ink. Stamp birds in Early Espresso Ink up high. Stamp the grass reeds in Early Espresso Ink and add sand in Sahara Sand Ink. Adhere panel to card inside.
  • Stamp the bottom envelope corner with the grass reeds and sand as you did the card inside.
  • And now you have a beautiful card to brighten someone’s day.

Happy Stamping!
