Our card today has been around for quiet sometime, but I think they always make for a lovely card with just that different look. It  gives a whole new outlook on cards!  Doesn’t matter how much you put on them or how little is on them, once that crimping kicks it – WOW!!!!
This stamp set is one of my favourites, although I must admit I don’t use it nearly as much as I should.  The ladies wanted a little bit of an ocean feel this week & thought I would incorporate a card that can suit anyone & any occasion.  “Ocean Commotion”  does just that!
Full instructions may be found in this post.  I have just changed all my colours & stamps.
After stamping my coral in Basful Blue & Marina Mist Inks, I sponged all over the card using SU Sponge & Bashful Blue Ink.  I wanted it to be a little soft with just the tinge of sponging, so I didn’t go too heavy on the sponging.  I repeated the same for the top half of the envelope.  The bottom half was then put through the crimper.
I stamped my fish & seahorse onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock with So Saffron Ink,cut around the images & adhered to the bottom of the envelope using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a piece of Ribbon around the top half of the envelope & tied a knot.

For the inside, I stamped the coral onto Whisper White Cardstock using Bashful Blue & So Saffron Inks.  This was adhered to a piece of So Saffron.
For my bubbles, I poured random size drops of Crystal Effects onto a small piece of Window Sheet, mixed in Marina Mist & Bashful Blue Re-Inkers randomly to the drops & allowed to dry.  A couple I applied no colour.  I applied these to the card using Tweezers & adhered with Crystal Effects.  I also applied a couple to the eyes of both fish & one to the seahorse.

  1. What a fantastic card. It certainly has the look and feel of the ocean but I love how the So Saffron makes it just that little bit more elegant. Great card and a good reminder of what a fun one this is to make. Thanks for sharing.
