Pool Party Best Wishes using Stampin’ Up! Sand & Sea suite

Hello, I hope you are well.

I have been having so much fun while playing with the fabulous Sand & Sea suite of products from the Stampin’ Up! January to June 2021 mini catalogue, so here’s another card I made recently…

I’ve used Pool Party card for my card base (21 x 14.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 10.5 cm) and with the main die from the Seaside Seashells set. After die cutting this piece, I stamped it with the coordinating stamps from the Friends Are Like Seashells set. I used a combination of Pacific Point, Seaside Spray and Pool Party inks to add the detail to the 5 different shells featured in this die.

To add more texture I then put my die cut into the Seashells 3D embossing folder. Once I’d done that I felt that I wanted to add a little bit of shimmer so added some of the Frost White shimmer paint to the raised pieces with a paint brush – you only need a tiny bit of the paint so your brush is almost dry…

You may have noticed that I added some extra detail to my card base too. Firstly I used the dotty stamp from the set with Pool Party ink randomly across the card front. I then diluted a little bit of the Whisper White ink refill and splattered it over the card base too – it’s not quite a Jackson Pollock but that was definitely my influence, lol!

To add the die to the card front I put Stampin’ Dimensionals under the shells but added liquid glue to the seaweed parts around the edge so that they don’t get caught on the envelope.

Finally I stamped my sentiment with Pacific Point ink onto Pool Party card and trimmed it to fit. I added a little bit of the Coastal Cabana ribbon from the Playing With Patterns ribbon combo for a bit extra detail under the sentiment.

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing this card as much as I enjoyed making it. This whole suite of products is just so much fun to get creative with.

I’ve listed all of the products I’ve used for today’s card below. When you click on a product image you’ll be directed to that item in my Stampin’ Up! shop and I’d be honoured to be your independent demonstrator.

Happy crafting,
