Sea of Textures in Blueberry Bushel

There are so many new products from Stampin' Up! and this card has plenty!  Let me share it with you.

Sea of Textures stamp set with Blueberry Bushel by Jo Anne Hewins
I am loving the new Sea of Textures stamp set and coordinating Under the Sea Thinlits.  They are fantastic!  They will be available as a bundle on June 1.  This card also shows a new In Color called Blueberry Bushel.  We are going to enjoy this color over the next two years!

The Blueberry Bushel base is cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.   The Blueberry Bushel stripe paper is from the 2018-2020 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Stack.  Wow!  I cheated a little at this.  I wanted to save paper and knew I would have the insert in the middle.  So I cut two of the stripe paper 1 x 1/2.  I glued these pieces on each side.   The important hint for this is to use your Grid Paper.  They way you can make sure that the pieces are at the same place on each side.

The green is called Call Me Clover.  It's another In Color!  It measures 3 1/8 x 4 1/8.  The next layer of blue dots is also from the In Color paper stack.  This is cut at 3 x 4.  Mount these two and glue them to the center of the card front.

The net, from the framelits, is cut from Whisper White.  I crinkled it up.  I attached the net by rolling up glue dots and placing them here and there.  Did you notice that I left a ripple in the net.  I think it would still be flat enough to mail without a problem.

The other sea embellishments are cut from Melon Mambo, Pool Party, and Call Me Clover card stock.  Just place these where you think they will look good.

The octopus is stamped in Call Me Clover.  I did use the Stamperatus to make sure the solid parts of the stamp look great!  We are so fortunate to have this tool!  If you didn't already get this tool, it will also be available on June 1.  There's a framelit to cut out the octopus.  Adhere with dimensionals.  The sentiment is from the Varied Vases stamp set.  Stamp on white and then fussy cut around the word.

The inside has words from the Detailed with Love stamp set.  It's new, too!  Stamp the octopus in Call Me Clover.  Use the stamperatus again.  The sea plant is stamped in Blueberry Bushel.
