Welcome and Thank you for visiting Christy’s Stamping Spot! I’m Christy, an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Southern Arizona, USA. I’m excited to be taking part in the Inspirations in Ink Blog Hop with this fabulous group of Demonstrators! This month we are focusing on the beautiful January-April 2023 Mini Catalog Seaside Bay Bundle.
Start with a Sahara Sand cardstock card base. Cut a By The Bay Specialty Designer Series Paper panel. Wrap the panel with the Balmy Blue/White Variegated ribbon using the Stampin’ Seal to secure the ribbon’s ends to the back of the panel. Glue the wrapped panel to the card base.
Die cut a By The Bay Specialty Designer Series Paper stitched circle with the Stylish Shapes dies. Die cut out a seashell and a crab with the Seaside Bay dies. Fussy cut four By The Bay Specialty Designer Series Paper seashells (two large, 1 medium, & 1 small) with paper snips. Color the crab with the Stampin’ Blends and add Wink of Stella to the crab and to the seashells for sparkle. Use glue, glue dots, and Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the seashells and crab to the die cut stitched circle. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the built stitched circle to the card front overlapping the wrapped ribbon.
Stamp the sentiment from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Night of Navy ink on Basic White cardstock. Use paper snips to fussy cut apart the sentiment and use glue dots to add the sentiment pieces to the the card front on the seashells. Tie a bow with the Balmy Blue/White Variegated ribbon and use paper snips to flag the ribbons’ ends. Add the bow to the left side of the stitched circle overlapping the wrapped ribbon with glue dots. Add Flat Adhesive-Backed Pearls to the bottom of the seashells on the card front.
Don’t forget to add a Basic White cardstock panel. Add a strip of By The Bay Specialty Designer Series Paper to the inside and back of the panel. Stamp the seashell in Sahara Sand ink (color with light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend & add Wink of Stella) and stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink from the Seaside Bay stamp set on the inside & back of the card to pull the theme through.
