Mount the Watercolor World stamp on Block F. Ink it up with the Saddle Brown StazOn Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the horizontal vellum rectangle.
Flip the stamped vellum upside down on your Grid Paper and rub firmly across the back to remove excess ink from the front and dry it out.
Leave the vellum upside down on your Grid Paper.
Use the Dark Pool Party Stampin' Blends to color around the edges of the stamped land masses.
Use the Dark Old Olive Stampin' Blends to scribble some green along the edges of the Pool Party coloring.
Use the Light Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends to color along the edges of the Pool Party/Old Olive coloring.
Use the Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends to color in the rest of the back of the vellum.
Fill a Stampin' Spritzer with rubbing alcohol.
Place the upside down stamped and colored vellum on top of some folded paper towels. This will help absorb the excess rubbing alcohol and any ink that runs off the edges.
Thoroughly spray alcohol all over the back of the stamped and colored vellum. This may cause the vellum to curl a little. That's okay.
Use the Heat Tool to move the colored alcohol around a bit and to dry the vellum. Again, it is okay if it curls the vellum a bit.
If desired, add more Pool Party Stampin' Blends to the back of the vellum if needed to fill in any areas.
Put a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive along the top and bottom edges of the horizontal white rectangle. Leave the protective backings in place. Trim off any excess Tear & Tape Adhesive on the left and right edges.
Remove the protective backing from the top Tear & Tape strip and adhere the top of the stamped and colored vellum to the white rectangle. Make sure the vellum is now right side up!
Remove the protective backing from the bottom Tear & Tape strip and adhere the bottom of the stamped and colored vellum to the white rectangle.
Put a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive along the top and bottom edges of the horizontal, layered white/vellum rectangle. Leave the protective backings in place. Use Paper Snips to cut off excess Tear & Tape Adhesive on the left and right edges.
Adhere the layered cardstock/vellum rectangle with Tear & Tape attached to the front of the Coastal Cabana card.
Remove the protective backings from the Tear & Tape strips. Lay the opened card in the Powder Pal included in the Embossing Additions Tool Kit. Open the container of Sparkle & Shine Sequins Assortment and sprinkle the sequins over the Tear & Tape strips. Press the sequins into the adhesive. Shake and brush off excess sequins into the Powder Pal so you can return them to the container to use on a future project.
Peel the protective backing off of the Adhesive Sheets rectangle. Adhere the Adhesive Sheets rectangle to the back side of the Dandy Designs Designer Paper rectangle. Be sure to leave the other protective backing in place for now.
Pick out the more detailed "amazing" word die from the Amazing Thanks Dies. Put it on top of the designer paper rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the designer paper side is face up. Run through the machine. Use the paper-piercing tool on the Take Your Pick to remove the pieces.
Adhere the "amazing" word cut out across the center of the card front.
