Hello! Annual Catalogue 2016 – 2017 Blog Hop Week 4


Welcome to the Hello! Annual Catalogue 2016-2017 Blog Hop! You’ll be hopping around 10 amazing Stampin’ Up!® Independent Demonstrators blogs, each with an inspirational project, featuring new catalogue products.
Currently you’re visiting Tracy May from London, United Kingdom. Hello there! You can continue hopping by using the previous and next buttons at the end of this post. Now, let’s scroll down to see what I’ve been making.
I’m using Seaside Shore by Stampin’ Up! for today’s project. I love this stamp set and I think it’s going to be very versatile! It’s a great replacement for Sea Street, which retired at the end of May and I’m really glad I bought it! I’ve used it today to make a birthday card for one of my son’s friends, but I think this set could easily be used for adult cards too!

At first, I was thinking of going for an aquarium look and using Window Sheet over the circle, but I changed my mind, as I thought everyone would expect it to be a shaker card! Lol!

First, I stamped the card front and the card base with Mint Macaron and Bermuda Bay for the seaweed. I used a mask, that I made out of sticky notes, to mask the seaweed as I stamped. As I wanted to line up the seaweed and fish that would show through the cut out circle, I used my Misti (shhh lol!) to stamp both the card front and card base, which were the same size to start with. I cut down the card front before I stuck it down! It was a bit laborious, and this is the second attempt, as I trashed the first when I stuck the card front on all skew-if and then tried to pull it off to move it – I really should know better by now! Lol!
But I’m glad I persevered, as I’m really happy with the card. So what do you think? I’m hoping my son’s friend likes it. My son doesn’t, but that’s because he wanted me to make a Lego Ninja card – he’s totally obsessed with Lego – Ninjago in particular! Sorry Regan – Seaside Shore it is!
Thank you for visiting today. The next stop is the talented Dena from the USA. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

  6. Hi Tracy! As always, I love every single card you make. Everything just seems effortless with you. Thank you for playing along this week. x

  7. Hi Tracy, Really like this card, I have the stamp set as I love all things nautical! Would you be able to let me know the dimensions of card stock and circle, have been crafting today and trying to work out from the photo but not getting it quite right. Many thanks. Linda x

    • Hi Linda so glad you liked the card. The card base is 5″ x 5″ and the card front is 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″. I don’t know the dimensions of the circle (and I’ve given the card away now so I can’t measure) but I just tried a few different ones from my framelit set till I found one that I thought looked right size wise. Hope that helps! 🙂
