Seascape is a fun stamp set that is in the Stampin’ Up!® 2021/2022 Annual Catalog. It has coordinating dies called Sea Life and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. The stamp set has nine stamps that include some fish, seaweed, bubbles, sand and sentiments. The die set has 4 large dies in it which include a very large gold fish, a very large seahorse, some seaweed and little fish. I think it is just made to use bright, happy colors with.
To make this card, I first stamped the seaweed in Granny Apple Green ink. Then I stamped the sand with Soft Suede ink onto a separate piece of Basic White card stock and actually used a die from the set called Majestic Mountain to cut it out. I didn’t want it go straight across so I used the top of the mountains to make it jagged. I layered that on top of the seaweed piece. Then I stamped the little fish in Fresh Freesia and the bubbles in Coastal Cabana ink. I stamped the larger fish in Polished Pink ink and cut them out by hand. It was fairly easy to do since the lines are mostly straight (just don’t look too closely). I popped them up on the card stock using Dimensionals as well as the little Bermuda Bay fish. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink
Rob and I went to the Caribbean many moons ago where we snorkeled off one of the islands and saw fish just like this swimming by. We were actually there to see a ship wreck but I was too scared to go there so I just looked at all the beautiful fish. I think I have seen too many scary movies where ghosts come out of ship wrecks and preferred not to get too close. I am a chicken. I know.
Susan, such a fun card, with fish swimming off the page. Yes, I love snorkeling because it was so crazy to see fish appear right in front of you!
What a fun card, Susan! I love the bright, happy colors and the gorgeous fish. I’d go snorkeling there any time!
