Stampin' Up! Seaside Spray Colour Challenge using the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set - by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Hello and welcome to a brand new Colour Challenge. This month I will be featuring Seaside Spray and, as always, Week 1 is monochrome. I hope you enjoy my Seaside Spray Colour Challenge Week 1 featuring the Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Stamp Set and coordinating Punch…

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a layer of Seaside Spray cardstock measuring 10 x 14.4 cm. Next is a layer of Whisper White cardstock measuring 9.5 x 13.9 cm and which forms the main card front.

Onto the card front I have repeatedly stamped the flower images from the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set in Seaside Spray ink. A length of Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon is wrapped around the card front and adhered at the back using Tear & Tape. A second, shorter, length of ribbon is tied onto the first.

The Umbrella and Welly Boots are heat embossed onto Seaside Spray cardstock using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The umbrella is cut out using the coordinating Umbrella Builder Punch whilst the boots are fussy cut. I stamped the umbrella handle in Seaside Spray ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the punch. The whole umbrella is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is stamped in Seaside Spray ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. This is layered onto a larger circle which is cut from Seaside Spray cardstock. Both the boots and the sentiment piece are adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by a few Clear Epoxy Droplets which I just had to use because they look so much like real water droplets.

What do you think to my Seaside Spray Colour Challenge Week 1 Card?

Seaside Spray is such a gorgeous, soft colour that I was really pleased when it was randomly chosen for my July Colour Challenge. I hope you like my Seaside Spray Colour Challenge Week 1 Card. Do you like monochrome cards in general or do you prefer using more than one colour? Next week, Seaside Spray will be combined with Grey Granite and Early Espresso – I hope you can join me.
