Sea Street.... Happy Birthday

This is the swap card I made for our Stampin' Up Hawaii Incentive trip....

I had so much fun playing with this stamp set - Sea Street -
the octopus and crabs are just too cute!!

We start our card with an Island Indigo card base, then added a layer of Soft Sky card stock.  We embossed this piece with our Lucky Stars Embossing folder.

Lucky Stars Embossing Folder  135817  $7.95

Next, we stamped:

-our octopus in Island Indigo ink
-the crabs in Real Red ink
-the little schools of fish in Pool Party ink (I decided Soft Sky was too light for this project - and Soft Sky and Pool Party are pretty interchangeable!).

We also added a strip of Island Indigo 1/4" Cotton Ribbon to the card.

Finally, we stamped "Happy Birthday" from the Guy Greetings Stamp set and punched this piece out with our XL Oval Punch

  1. I just loved the way you expressed your Hawaii trip feelings at this beautiful indigo card. These two red crabs are too cute! I am searching best location for my wife’s birthday party and after reading your post I think beach areas are one the best option for beach parties. Last year we celebrated her birthday at venues in San Francisco and now this year I am searching more thrilling place for a grand party.

  2. thanks so much, zerry ht!! i loved the location that stampin up chose for our most recent incentive trip!! we stayed at the sheraton on waikiki beach - i would definitely recommend it!! it would be perfect for your wife's birthday celebration!!
