Shells

February 21, 2019

Today’s cards use the seashell image from the By The Bay stamp set.  This stamp set is FREE with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration.  For the first card I punched a strip of Cajun Craze card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch.  The punched piece is attached behind one long edge of a piece of Tranquil Textures Designer Series paper.  The panel is attached to the left hand side of Whisper White card.  I stamped the greeting from the By The Bay stamp set using Cajun Craze onto the lower right hand corner of the Whisper White card.  The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Cajun Craze card.   I stamped the seashell image from the By The Bay stamp set three times onto scrap Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the shell using the dark Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend and the sand using Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.  I cut out the image using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies and attached each image to a Crumb Cake scalloped circle cut using the same dies.  The image panels are attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I punched a strip of Cajun Craze card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and attached it behind one long edge of a strip of the same Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper.  The panel is attached to the bottom of Whisper White card.  I stamped the seashell image from the By The Bay stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black in onto the left hand side of the Whisper White card just above the designer series paper.

For the second card, I punched a narrow strip of Cajun Craze card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and attached it behind one short edge of Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper.  The panel is attached to Whisper White card and then scored and folded Cajun Craze card.  I stamped the seashell image from the By The Bay stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink I coloured the seashell using the dark Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend and the sand using the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.  The image is cut out using an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and attached to a Crumb Cake scalloped oval cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped “thinking of you” from the By The Bay stamp set onto Whisper White card using Cajun Craze ink and cut it out using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  The greeting is attached to a Crumb Cake scalloped oval cut using the same dies and then the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I punched a strip of Cajun Craze card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and attached it behind one long edge of a piece of the same Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper.  The panel is attached to the bottom of Whisper White card.  I stamped the seashell image across the Whisper White card above the Designer Series paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

They look lovely don’t they.  The designer series paper kind of gives the cards a very tranquil look (sorry about the pun).  I did make a slight error on one of these cards, can you spot it?

Bye for now,

Kris
