Some of my very fondest memories as a child are of summers spent at the beach in Southern California - Portuguese Bend Club to be exact! So one of the first stamp sets I bought from the 2016 Stampin' Up! catalog was the Seaside Shore set, paired with the By The Shore designer paper and the Seaside embossing folder!! What a great suite of Nautical products!
I cut 3 pieces of the By the Shore paper for this card.
- 4x4 piece of the wavy pattern
- 3/4" x 4" blue denim pattern
- 2" x 4" piece of the coral pattern
All pieces are layered onto my folded Dapper Denim card.
One of the techniques I wanted to highlight on this card was STAMPING ON THE DESIGNER PAPER. So you will see several places that I stamped on this paper.. Did you notice all the places I stamped onto the "By the Shore" paper?

The other thing that I tried on this nautical card was embossing the "By the Shore" paper after I stamped the bubbles! I love the Seaside Textured Embossing Folder on this card! What do you think.. with or without the embossing?
I stamped the bubbles first, before embossing. The bubbles are from the new "Playful Background" stamp set, on page 121 in the 2016 Catalog, #141290.
The Seaside embossing folder goes so well with that printed paper from the By the Shore designer series paper pack!!! You'll find the embossing folder on page 92 and on page 195, item #141481. The designer paper is on pg 92 and 173, #141640.
The fish were stamped in Dapper Denim or Calpyso ink onto Whisper White cardstock, and after they were completely dry, I added some color with my Stampin' Write Markers in Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Peekaboo Peach and Soft Sky. I also colored over them with the Clear Wink of Stella pen. Never hurts to add a little shimmer to your stamped card :)
For the Fish that is partly green and partly blue... I inked 1/2 the stamp in Wild Wasabi, and 1/2 the stamp in Dapper Denim and then stamped it on the Whisper White paper - fun, huh?
I cut the fish out with my paper snips and adhered them to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
