Hi Stampers. I have another Pals Paper Arts sketch to share with you today. I’ve used it to make two cards. A basic card and one “stepped up” as a shaker card. I used the new Stampin’ Up! Seaside Shore stamp set and the new Seaside Textured Embossing Folder.
For this card I used a Crumb Cake card base (8.5″ x 5.25″, scored at 4.25″). I then used my circle framelits to cut 2.25″ circle into a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Pool Party card stock. I then used the Big Shot and Seaside textured embossing folder to add the waves. The fish in the big bubble are stamped onto a 3.25″ x 3.25″ square of Whisper White card stock. I used Calypso Coral and Cajun Craze ink on the left fish and Crushed Curry and Basic Black on the fish on the left. I stamped the bubbles in Pool Party ink. The Whisper White square was adhered behind the large circle with snail adhesive and then the Pool Party layer adhered to the card base with snail adhesive.
The Island Indigo colored fish and the Tip Top Taupe seashell and starfish were stamped onto Whisper White card stock card stock. The Island Indigo fish was punched out with a 1 3/8″ circle punch and the seashell and starfish are punched out with a 1″ circle punch. The smaller circle as adhered with snail adhesive and the medium circle is adhered with a stampin’ dimensional.
This cute saying and sea kelp are also from the Seaside Shore stamp set. I stamped the sentiment in Island Indigo ink and the sea kelp in Wild Wasabi ink onto a 5″ x 3.75″ layer of Whisper White and adhered that to the interior of the card with snail adhesive.
This version of the sketch is a shaker card. It was done very similar, but I added dimensionals between the embossed layer and the card base. I also added a layer of acetate over inside fish. I cut the acetate the same size as the Whisper White layer (3.25″ x 3.25″) and used the foam adhesive strips to add a frame around the square, added some sequins to the middle and then put the acetate over that. I then used snail adhesive to adhere it to the embossed layer. I put stampin’ dimensionals at each corner of the embossed layer and adhered to to the card base. I also sponged around the smaller circles with Pool Party ink. I stamped the “Ahoy, there” banner in Island Indigo ink and “fussy cut” it out with scissors and adhered with a piece of foam strip.
I used the same sentiment on the inside, but added the anchor to the bottom left and the fish to the top right with Island Indigo ink, instead of the sea kelp at the bottom.
I hope these cards inspire you to play along with Pals Paper Arts and/or take your cards to the next level by trying a shaker card.
