Welcome and Thank you for visiting Christy’s Stamping Spot! I’m Christy and I’m an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. I’m excited to be taking part in Bruno and Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop with this fabulous group of Demonstrators from around the world!
Each month I make & send Customer Thank You Cards for everyone who orders from my Online Store. This month I created a card using the awesome limited time exclusive Waves of the Ocean Designer Series Paper, the stamp set from the fabulous A Little Smile Card Kit, and the Seas dies.
Start with Crumb Cake cardstock card base. Dry emboss the front of the card base with the Tasteful Textile 3D. Cut a Crumb Cake cs panel and a Waves of the Ocean DSP panel. Use paper snips to fussy cut a wavy diagonal done the front of Waves of the Ocean DSP panel. Stamp the sand texture image from the A Little Smile stamp set on the Crumb Cake cs panel in 1st, 2nd, & 3rd generation (stamped off) Crumb Cake ink. Glue the fussy cut Waves of the Ocean DSP panel to the Crumb Cake cs panel and then glue the panels to the card base.
Punch out a Pacific Point cs scalloped oval and a Basic White cs oval with the Double Oval punch. Stamp the sentiment from the A Little Smile stamp set in Pacific Point ink on the Basic White cs oval. Glue the stamped oval to the Pacific Point cs scalloped oval off center. Die cut a Vellum cs large sprig and a Coastal Cabaña cs sea leaves from the Sea dies. Cut a piece of Mother of Pearl Specialty paper and dry emboss it with the Seashells 3D embossing folder being sure that the paper is positioned over the desired shell. Use paper snips to cut off the excess from around the shell.
Use Stampin’ Seal and glue dots to layer the die cut pieces on the back of the sentiment ovals. Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the build sentiment ovals & die cuts to the card front overlapping the transition between the stamped Crumb Cake cs panel and the Waves of the Ocean DSP. Tie a small double Linen Thread bow and add it to the card front by the sentiment ovals with a glue dot. Add Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels to the card front for sparkle.
Don’t forget to add a Basic White cs inside panel to write your message. Stamp the sentiment in Pacific Point & the sand dollar in 2nd generation (stamped off) Coastal Cabaña’ ink from the A Little Smile stamp set and added a strip of DSP to the inside & back of the card to pull theme through.
I hope you enjoyed my A Little Smile Waves of the Ocean Customer Thank You card. You can order the A Little Smile Card Kit, Waves of the Ocean DSP, Sea dies, Double Oval punch, Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and the Seashells 3D embossing folder in my Online Store.
