Stampin' Up! Sea of Textures

Hello and Happy Saturday! While I count down the hours before I board a plane for Alabama to look at an electronic medical record system for our local hospital, I wanted to share with you another awesome bundle found in the new 2018-2020 Annual Catalog. This is another set that immediately jumped out at me. Between the adorable octopus (I know, the real ones are pretty gross, but this stamped little guy is too cute!) and the die cut netting...I was HOOKED (no pun intended) and again, this card was super simple because Stampin' Up! provides the tools to make it simple.
I originally created this card to share with my tutorial coop and today I wanted to share it with you.
To recreate this cute card:

Measurements:   • Crumb Cake:  8 1/2” x 5 1/2”  4” x 4” scrap for net • Blackberry Bliss: 1/2” x 5 1/2”  and 1/2” x 3” • Whisper White: Scrap for Octopus • DSP:     5 1/2” x 2 3/4” 

 1. Adhere the DSP and 5 1/2” piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock to the right side of the card front.   2. Die cut the netting from the scrap piece of Crumb Cake and sponge with Crumb Cake ink. Adhere to the card front. 
 3. Stamp the Octopus from the Sea of Textures stamp set in Tranquil Tide ink onto the scrap of Whisper White and die cut with the coordinating die. Pop him up with Stampin’ Dimensionals over the net.
  4. Stamp the inside right panel with the net image in Crumb Cake ink, add the tall foliage in Tranquil Tide and the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink.
 5. For a final touch, add the 1/2” x 3” piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock to the bottom right corner of the panel.

I hope this card made you smile. I know it did me. I love the colors and the texture and the whimsy. I will be away for a few days traveling for my full time job as the Director of Clinical Informatics so I will be missing from here, but I will be back next weekend with a fun share. Until then,
Happy Stamping,
