Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #510 Sea of Textures

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  Today we have a sketch for you.


I've found myself using the Sea of Textures bundle a lot lately.  Pairing the stamp set and the Under the Sea Thinlits makes it easy to make a great looking card.

You might remember the color Mint Macaron.  It was an In Color several years back.  Mint Macaron is back.  It's part of the new Subtles line up for Stampin' Up!  I used this color for the base of my card today.  It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  I stamped the front of the card in Night of Navy ink randomly with the bubbly ocean look stamp.  Some are stamped off.  Then run the front of the card through the Big Shot with the Seaside Embossing Folder.

The patterned paper used with this card is called Tranquil Textures.  The largest rectangle is cut 3 x 4.  The smaller one is 2 x 3.  I decorated the smaller rectangle with some sea life in Berry Burst, Night of Navy and Mint Macaron card stock.  These were cut from the Under the Sea Thinlits.

The octopus was colored with sponge daubers.  The top is in Berry Burst and the bottom is in Night of Navy.  I used the Stamperatus so I could reink and stamp again until I had the bold colors I wanted.  Cut this out with the Under the Sea Thinlits.

The words are part of the new Itty Bitty Greetings.  It's punched with the Classic Label Punch.

Decorate the inside of the card with more sea life.  The saying here is from the Abstract Impressions stamp set.  It's stamped in Berry Burst.
