Hey Stampin friends! Hope life is getting sunnier wherever you are!! This is another one of my favorite sea sets! I love the beach, so it always brightens my day when I make a sea themed card.
On these two cards which are essentially the same, I used Blackberry Bliss as my card base 8 1/2″ by 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″. You’ll also need three pieces of whisper white , a 3″ by 4″piece, a 3/4″ by 4 1/4″piece, and a 4″ by 5 1/4″ for the inside of the card . Two pieces of Blackberry Bliss one at 3 1/4″ by 4″ one 1″ by 4 1/4″ and one Pool Party piece 4″by 5 1/4″. You’ll want to run the Pool Party piece through the big shot in the decorative dots embossing folder , then get out your daubers !!! As you see my # 1 card (which is the one I made in the video) is a little heavy on the Blackberry Bliss in my opinion. I would advise to go extra heavy on the Pool Party ink first, and instead of inking your dauber from the Blackberry Bliss ink pad directly, I would ink from the lid of the ink pad…. Maybe even slightly diluted with a bit of water. You could also keep a paper towel handy in case you need to get off some of the excess ink. You can always add more, take away, not so much😳.
Shocking as it is, this card has NO dimensionals….. I know, you can’t quite believe that one☺️. You can sub in a piece of DSP(Designer Series paper) for the 3/4″ by 4 1/4″ piece of whisper white and you could probably use Mint Macaron or Wisteria Wonder as a different, lighter color palate.

I would love to hear your thoughts, ideas and suggestions!
Until next time…….
