Hello! Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop featuring the Seaside Shore stamp set. Thanks so much for stopping by!
The Stamp Review Crew is an international group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who gather for a blog hop the first and third Mondays of the month to review a single stamp set. The number of participants varies from hop to hop, but the ideas are plentiful as we take a stamp set through its paces. By the time you've traveled through the hop, you are sure to find a number of innovative ways to use the featured stamp set. So sit back, relax, and get ready to start pinning ideas to your Pinterest board!
To see the line up of artists for this week's hop, click here. If you've already joined the hop and are traveling forward, you've arrived from Linda Callahan's blog where you were presented with an amazing project to inspire your creativity. If you're traveling backwards through the hop, you've seen Heidi Baks' project and are ready to CASE! (Copy And Share Everything)
I have two projects to share with you.
My first project is a "window" into an aquarium. Therefore, the slight "haze" you see over the water scene is a piece of Window Sheets. The greeting sits on top of the Window Sheets. It's hard to capture in the photo, but I added Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush on the Very Vanilla areas of the fish and to the sea grass. I was composing this blog post in my mind as I was flying to Colorado on Friday and realized that I could have made this a Shaker Card with the addition of some of the new Iridescent Sequins OR added a few of the Iridescent Sequins on the embossed base to simulate bubbles.
Supplies I used for this project --
Stamps: Seaside Shore, Banners For You; Inks: Basic Gray Archival, Calypso Coral, Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide, Pool Party, Wink of Stella Glitter Brush; Stampin' Write Markers: 2017-2019 In Color (Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide), Subtles (Calypso Coral); Cardstock: Basic Gray, Calypso Coral, Very Vanilla, Silver Foil Sheets, Window Sheets; Adhesives: Fast Fuse, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots; Tools: Stampin' Trimmer, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Bone Folder, Paper Snips, Blender Pens, Sponge, Big Shot w/Multipurpose Platform and Magnetic Platform, Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Layering Ovals Framelits, Bunch of Banners Framelits
One of the people who provides a boat load of inspiration to me in my card making is Tanya Boser, the leader of the Stamp Review Crew and Stampin' Up! Artisan. The background for this card was inspired by her frequent use of stamped patterned backgrounds. These are the large starfish and large scallop shell stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder. The beautiful sentiment comes from the So Many Shells stamp set. The cardstock color of the card base and mat for the sentiment are Fresh Fig, a new In Color. I think the shine from the copper embossing took overtook the color of the Fresh Fig in the photo.
Supplies I used for this project --
Stamps: Seaside Shore, So Many Shells; Inks: Fresh Fig, Versamark; Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Fresh Fig, Very Vanilla; Embellishments: Copper Trim; Adhesives: Fast Fuse, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals; Tools: Stampin' Trimmer, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Bone Folder, Paper Snips, 1/8" handheld circle punch, Embossing Buddy, Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Big Shot w/Magnetic Platform, Lots of Labels Framelits
With the heat of Summer, the Seaside Shore stamp set certainly puts me in the mood to head to the water. If you aren't close to the shore, you may want to pull out this stamp set and get your beach on.
I'll be sharing the how-to's for these projects very soon, so be sure to return to see the liners for the inside sentiment areas for each of these projects and the coordinating decorated envelopes.
