Sea Cards and Seed Beads

So clearly I have gotten a little stuck on the octopus stamp from Sea of Textures and the sparkly sand dollars out of the June Paper Pumpkin. Today, I decided to create one of the seed bead cards.

Now, I must warn you… the beads are not as simple as I thought. I used a clear stretchy jewelry string that did not fit through any needles that I had, so getting the beads on the string was a little painful. I think with some tweaking, it could be a lot easier to assemble.

That being said….. I LOVE THIS CARD!! I think it’s so cute and full of personality.

Happy crafting!

June Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

Today, I felt inspired by the heat to create some beach and sea themed cards featuring the June Paper Pumpkin, Seaside Notions stamp set, Sea of Textures stamps and the Under the Sea dies.

The plan was to start pretty simple and then work my way up to more complicated layouts.

For these two, I created vanilla cards with early espresso rectangles to frame the images from June’s Paper Pumpkin. The first has a second frame with costal cabana cardstock embossed with the seaside textured embossing folder (retired).

The next one was fairly simple but involved more coloring. The seahorse is stamped in Pretty Peacock and then colored with the Pretty Peacock Stampin’ blends of the same color. I placed a pearl for his eye from the retired artisan collection. The brain coral was colored on the reverse with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ blends. The fishing net is from the Under the Seas Dies. It was cut from Early Espresso cardstock. Inner sand dollar was stamped in Costal Cabana.

The final creation for the day featured the octopus from the Sea of Textures bundle. The little fish are one of the dies in the bundle. The glittered starfish and sand dollar, coral, wood cutout, sentiment and string are all from the June Paper Pumpkin. The paper is retired DSP.

Hope you feel inspired!
