Place the foam mat on the base of the Stamparatus, make sure it is pushed into the upper right corner as far as possible.
Pick out the "You're Awesome" sentiment from the Epic Celebrations Set. Place it upside down on the Stamparatus base as far into the upper right corner as it will go on both the upper and right edges. Close the plate on the Stamparatus and press firmly so the stamp sticks to the plate. Open the plate.
Place the piece of Pool Party cardstock on the Stamparatus base so it is as far as possible into the upper right corner with a 4" side running horizontally across the top. Secure in place with the magnet on the left side of the cardstock.
Ink up the stamp on the plate using the Pool Party Ink Pad. If you get excess ink on the plate, you can wipe it off with a baby wipe or tissue. Close the plate onto the cardstock and press down firmly. Open the plate.
Remove the plate from the hinges and then reinsert it in the hinges one step down. Leave the cardstock in place. Re-ink the stamp, close the plate, and press down firmly. Repeat 3 more times moving down one hinge step each time and remembering to re-ink the stamp each time.

Place the Bermuda Bay rectangle into the Oh My Stars Embossing Folder. Place the folder with the card stock inside on top of a Cutting Pad on your Big Shot Platform at the lowest possible setting. Place another Cutting Pad on top of the folder and run through the Big Shot.
Use the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to add shimmer to the dry embossed stars.
Adhere the dry embossed Bermuda Bay rectangle to the left side of the card so about 1/4" in from the left side of the Pool Party rectangle and about 5/8" down from the top of the Pool Party layer.
Unlock the Banner Triple Punch. Hold the punch upside down so you can see the punching area. Insert the strip of Whisper White into the punch as far as it will go and line it up from side to side in the punching area. Punch.
Mount the "Here's to an Epic Celebration" sentiment on Block B. Ink it up with the Bermuda Bay Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the punched white strip as close to the notch as you can get it.
Use Paper Snips or the Stampin' Trimmer to trim off excess cardstock at the top of the sentiment banner.
Insert the strip of Glimmer Paper into the Banner Triple Punch as far as it will go. Punch.
Use Tear & Tape Adhesive on the back of the white sentiment banner to adhere it over the Glimmer Paper banner so about 1/8" of the Glimmer Paper shows in the notched area.
Use Paper Snips or the Stampin' Trimmer to trim off excess Glimmer Paper along the top so only about 1/8" of Glimmer Paper shows.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the matted sentiment banner to the card front so it overlaps the left side of the dry embossed Bermuda Bay piece by about 3/4".
Make sure you have some paper (Grid Paper works great) at your work space.to protect the work surface. The Stampin' Blends Markers will bleed through the cardstock that you are coloring so you need to protect your work surface.
Place the stamped shoes and headphones images on the work paper and start coloring with the Stampin' Blends Markers. The markers have a brush tip for coloring in larger areas and a fine tip for coloring in smaller areas. Use the light color first and add highlights with the darker color. If needed to blend the colors, go over things again with the lighter color.
Use Paper Snips to cut out the shoes and headphones. Cut the headphones apart at the bottom where the two ear cushions overlap so you can cut out the inside area of the headphones as well.
Put some SNAIL on the back of the shoes and adhere the headphones to them so that they wrap around the shoes. Use a Mini Stampin' Dimensional to adhere the left ear cushion to the tops of the shoes.
Adhere the shoes/headphones to the center of the dry embossed Bermuda Bay rectangle.
