Hello! It’s Kari today and I’m so excited to share with you some Beachy card sets with some of the Under the Seashore stamp sets. Sometimes I need a gift and a set of cards makes a perfect small gift that many of my friends appreciate. So I am sharing TWO gift card set ideas for you that I hope you enjoy!
I have a quick video, watch it here or on YouTube:
Card Set One: Seashell Cards
For this first set, I used the Fresh From Port stamp set. I stamped the large shell image onto Neenah Desert Storm cardstock in 3 different ink colors: Flat White, Lady Liberty & Sugar Plum.
I chose a different sentiment for each card so they were a little different in that way as well. Then I heat embossed the compass stamp with Solar Flare Embossing Powder on this first one. I used Meteor Shower Embossing Powder on the other two cards.
I mounted these onto a card base of 110# cardstock in white, then I tied them all up with some raffia and a starfish embellishment! I also included some beautiful envelopes, of course!
Card Set Two: Nautical Cards
For my second set of cards I used the Have a Fin-tastic Day stamp set. This set is so awesome for card sets as well!! I paired it with a brushed lines stencil and used the Circle Spotlight Stencil to help for easy cardmaking.
Since I started with a more Nautical theme, I stamped the circular stamp with the new Independence Red Color Hive ink. For a little shading, I added some Telephone Box Color Hive ink around the outside of the image (do you see how it’s darker around the edges). This makes for a NO COLORING card! 🙂
I stamped the sentiment in the center with Black ink, then covered up the image with the mask from the Circle Spotlight Stencil. That allowed me to place the lined stencil over the top and ink Vegas Strip ink on the entire panel.
I kept the cards similar in feel, but used different stamps and sentiments and colors for each. For this dolphin card, I stamped it with Blue Raspberry Color Hive Ink and colored it up with Copic Markers.
Flat White ink stripes worked perfectly for this color scheme.
For this last card, I stamped the image with Flat White ink, and the sentiment in different colors (Vegas Strip & Bubblegum) to really stand out. The stripes were done with that pink ink as well! I colored them up with light colored Copics.
Then I mounted them all onto Neenah Desert Storm card bases.
