Stampendous and Spellbinders By the Sea!

The Stampendous Design Team is having fun this week partnering up with the team at Spellbinders and we hope you'll like what we've created for you!


Our theme this week is By the Sea, so I've used a Spellbinder Nestabilities from the Labels Eight set to create my beach scene.
This was actually pretty easy to make, just follow these easy steps:
  • Fold a white A2 top fold card in half and stamp the front with the swirl from the Mixed Media Cling Rubber Brush Strokes (CRS7001) set 
  • Cut a label out of white cardstock with the second largest die from the Labels Eight set and stamp it with the swirl too
  •  Paste emboss the Dreamweaver Scallop (LM106), Seahorse (LM181), and Starfish (LM209) with Regular Embossing Paste using a palette knife and paste spreader
  • Remove the stencil and sprinkle with Golden Sand Embossing Powder, tap off excess and heat set, when cool, cut out the images 
  • Sprinkle the bottom area of the die cut label with a combination of Golden Sand, Taupe fragments, and Bronze glass glitter, heat from underneath
  • Tear two pieces of kraft cardstock for the "sand" area of the card 
  • Edge everything with brown ink using an ink blusher
  • Stamp the saying from the Life Words set, SSC1213, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on kraft cardstock, tear edges and ink with brown
  • Layer torn kraft cardstock along the bottom, front edge of the card then add the label, and more embossing elements along the bottom edge, heat
  • Layer on the shells and saying, and add a knotted cord

Be sure to keep checking back with the team this week to see what else we have in "shore" for you!

Wow, these dreamweaver stencils look really cool grouped together, I love that starfish, on my wishlist (and the golden sand embossing powder)! This is just such a pretty card, I love how you did the sand too. :) Thanks for sharing.
