Today I have a Summery card to share featuring Simon’s new absolutely fantastic Sea and Sky cling background stamp set. This is a very large stamp set, it measures 6 x 7 1/2”, you can use it for an A2 card, for a mini slimline and even for a regular slimline, which makes it very versatile.
This stamp has 3 parts – each section is separate, making it easy to use, no masking needed! You have the beach section, the sea section, and the sky section. You can use these together, but you can also use them alone with other products from your stash.
To make the card I am sharing today I stamped the sand using Pale Blush Pink ink from Simon Says Stamp. The sea was white heat embossed on white cardstock, I ink blended Maliblue and Audrey Blue inks on top for a very soft, calm looking sea. The sea and beach sections were both stamped on one panel, then the horizon line was fussy cut. The sky was stamped on another cardstock panel in Simon’s Cloudy Sky ink.
I adhered the panels onto an A2 white card base (starting with the sky panel), I trimmed the excess paper off and tucked a circle sun die cut in between them. The sun was created by stamping an extra beach section in Pale Blush Pink ink and cutting a portion of it out using a circle die.
The sentiments for this card were heat embossed in white on black cardstock (Sea You Soon), this one was also cut out using a coordinating die; and stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black ink on white cardstock. I foam mounted the sentiments onto my card and also added several stamped sea gulls. Both the sentiments and the sea gulls come from the Seas and Greetings stamp set.
Finally, I embellish my card with some Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Have fun stamping!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Yana for being our guest!
