Seaside Shore Nautical Themed Birthday Card using Stampin Up! Products UK

Happy Sunday ... Another Very Warm day, so this card gives the sense of cool waters washing over me! he he

Anyhow, Today is one of my Baby Brothers Birthday. He is 10 years younger than me and spends all his social time teaching people scuber diving. scuber diving is more than a hobby for him though, it is a real passion, and he has been to foreign climes to dive with sharks, whales etc

And this is the card I made my brother Karl!! Happy Birthday Baby Bros!!


As soon as this stamp set made it's appearance in the new Stampin' Up! Catalogue, I just had to have it. Finding nautical themed cards can be challenging, but I can always rely on Stampin, Up! to have something I love, that I can use.

But I will also use this stamp set for Children, men and women, as it is a great, multi-purpose collage stamp set.

Below you will not only see the Video I made that accompanies today's blog post, but also a products list and a quick typed tutorial

  1. CARD BASE - Trim a piece of Dapper Night of Navy Cardstock to 30 x 10.5 cms; Score long side at 14.9 cms; fold & burnish
  2. Trim two pieces of Whisper White Cardstock to 14.4 x 10.1 cms; adhere one of these to the inside of your card base for you to write/stamp your greeting
  3. Now for stamping the card. Use a combination of the blue/green ink pads listed above to stamp the Kelp, Fish & Bubbles
  4. Use Soft Suede to stamp the rope, anchor, and clam shells. spomge the background using a combination of the blue & green ink pads, and a wedge of Stampin Sponge. Blend the inks to create an Ombre effect. Keep the stamping random, and 'white space', to give you an area to stamp your greeting. The Sentiment comes from the Build A Birthday Stamp Set. I used Dapper Denim to stamp the sentiment
  5. Finally, stamp the Ahoy Stamp using Dapper Denim Ink Pad onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock and fussy cut out using Paper S Snips. Mount onto card front using Stamping Dimensionals (cut down) & mat (layer) the stamped card front  onto the card base - remember to Check where the fold is first.
