Happy Celebrations Seahorses for You
F un 3" x 3" note card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Calypso Coral Cardstock at 3" x 6" and scored at 3"
- 2-3/4" square with three seahorses from Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper
- scrap of Calypso Coral Cardstock at least 3" long
Place the seahorses square from the Just Add Color Designer Paper on some Grid Paper to protect your work surface.
Color the image 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 dark color. Blend the colors by going over everything again with the light color.
Use Calypso Coral and Pumpkin Pie Markers on the seahorses.
Use Bermuda Bay Markers on the water.
Use the Color Lifter Marker to lighten some areas of the water.
Adhere the colored seahorses square to the front of the Calypso Coral card.
Carefully peel up small clear circles from a sheet of Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes making sure that you get the adhesive backing as well. Adhere them over the bubbles printed on the Just Add Color Designer Paper.
Place the Calypso Coral scrap on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image when you stamp.
Mount the "for you" sentiment from the Happy Celebrations Set on Block G. Ink it up with the Basic Black Archival Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the Calypso Coral strip.
Pick out the short, rounded-ends banner framelit from the Bunch of Banners Framelits. Place the stamped sentiment on a Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on your Big Shot. Place the banner framelit on top so the sentiment is centered. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Use Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment banner to the lower right corner of the card front.
Carefully peel up two small Bermuda Bay circles from a sheet of Brights Enamel Shapes making sure that you get the adhesive backings as well. Adhere them to the rounded ends of the sentiment banner.
