The Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Seas The Day is such a fun set. It includes various sea creatures such as fish, an octopus, a crab, a starfish and a jelly fish. It also includes some fun sentiments, bubbles and seaweed. This stamp has coordinating dies called Sea Dies that cut out all the different shapes as well as a fun frame for your card. This bundle is in the 2022 January – June Mini Catalog. Unfortunately, it is going to retire at the end of this catalog.
To make this card I first took a 3.75″ x 5″ piece of Mint Macaron card stock and embossed it using the Bark 3D embossing Folder. This embossing folder is also retiring on May 3rd. I layered this on top of a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Daffodil Delight card stock and a Basic White card base. Then I stamped the fish in Polished Pink and Daffodil Delight ink and cut them out using the coordinating dies. I cut out the various pieces of seaweed in Soft Sea Foam card stock and layered everything using Multipurpose Glue. The sentiments is a die from Pinkfresh.
It has been a long week after my surgery to fix a tear in my Achilles Tendon. I am getting around more, which is great for Rob’s sake. He has waited on me hand and foot (Ann’s pun) and has not complained at all. Today I go back to the Orthopedic surgeon to have the cast removed and the stitches taken out. I am going to have a wear a boot for quite a while after that and have physical therapy. It does not sound like a lot of fun but when it is all over, I am hoping to be able to run circles around again. I can’t wait to get this cast off!
