Happiest of Birthdays and Whale Done

Today I have a card for you using the Happiest of Birthdays and Whale Done.  We'll be using the Stamparatus to help us with this one.  Here's a picture.

Seabed Happiest of Birthdays by Jo Anne Hewins

Begin this card with a card base of Bermuda Bay that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Fold at 4 1/4.

Run a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Coastal Cabana through the new Stampin' Up! Cut & Emboss machine using the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder.  This folder is so pretty.  There's so much detail.  Make that detail pop by sponging this layer with Bermuda Bay ink.  You don't need to sponge the very center because it will be covered up.

The Whisper White layer is cut using the largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.

We are going to stamp the largest birthday saying from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set.  I set this up on my Stamparatus so that the saying would be right in the middle of my die cut rectangle.  Use the Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, and Night of Navy Stampin' Write markers to color directly on the stamp.  I'll have a video to show you how to do this.  Start with the lightest color, Coastal Cabana, and color with the bigger point.  I caution against using the point of the marker, but more the side of it.  Color in about 1/3 of the saying and stamp.  Color and stamp again if needed.  Clean the stamp.  Now, using the Bermuda Bay color in the middle of the stamp.  Repeat if needed.  Make sure that all the letters have stamped.  Clean.  Now repeat this whole process with the Night of Navy stamp set.  You have a beautiful ombre effect card.  

Here's the video showing how to make this card.


Stamp off with the Coastal Cabana and stamp several of the jelly fish (I did 3) over the words.  Add the dots in Bermuda Bay.  Some are fully inked and some are stamped off.  Add this layer with dimensionals.  Cut a turtle from the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper to add at the bottom of the layer.  Glue the top and add a dimensional to the bottom where it extends over the layer.  Add some Wink of Stella to give the turtle some glimmer and shine.

Here is the inside of the card.  This saying is colored with the markers in the same way as the label on the front.  The jelly fish over the words is stamped off.  The other two are not stamped off.  Add more of the dots.
