Thinking of you with Seaside Notions

The card I created today is for a friend I haven’t seen and will probably not see her because of social distancing.  I was also inspired by the Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  There were so many beautiful images in the challenge image I was inspired to create with the Seaside Notions stamp set.

I used an aqua painter to create the background with Pretty Peacock ink.  The netting is die cut gold foil from the retired Under Sea dies set.  The seahorse I stamped in Pretty Peacock and fussy cut .  I also used an aqua painter to move the ink to lightly color the seahorse.  The leaf I stamped from the Timeless Tropical and die cut with the In the Tropics die on Just Jade paper with Just Jade ink.  The coral I stamped in Pretty Peacock on Vellum then fussy cut.  I also die cut the sprig from Just Jade.  The sentiment I heat embossed with white embossing powder and used the Braided Burlap Trim with linen thread to embellish.

Stampin’ Up Seaside Notions

I love seashells and sea life themed stamp sets so I was excited when I saw the Seaside Notions stamp set in the new catalog.  The seahorse image is my favorite.  I stamped the seahorse and sea shells with Momento Black and colored them with watercolor pencils and blender pen.  I used Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight for the seahorse.  The sea shells I colored with Early Espresso, Calypso Coral and Pacific Point watercolor pencils.

The background is embossed with retired Seaside Embossing folder.  I die cut the mesh background from the Under The Sea dies and also die cut a label from the Stitched Nested Labels set.  The greeting is also from the Seaside Notions stamp set.

My card is based on the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  There is more inspiration for this challenge from the design team.
