Under the Sea Just Add Ink Challenge #jai614

Under the sea … I keep singing The Little Mermaid song … is our theme for the Just Add Ink challenge this week.

#614 Just Add Ink Challenges, Stampin' Up!

With not many sea products to play with I created an under the sea background using Blending Brushes and ink. I added several layers of stamped images including some fish heat embossed in Daffoldil Delight.


  • Ink up stamp in Versamark
  • Immediately ink up in selected colour
  • Stamp image
  • Heat emboss in Clear Embossing Powder’
  • Clean stamp inbetween each application

The tree rings were embossed with the Stripes and Splatter embossing folder to resemble sea life in the depths of the ocean.

I stamped the turtle in Calypso coral and coloured in with Granny Apple Green, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. The sentiment from the Party Puffins stamp set has been heat embossed in white and then I curved it to form a ‘wave’.

I love this little sceene and I can picture Ariel swimming right alongside this turtle!

Come Sail Away Memories & More Card

The card I’ve got for you today is from a batch I created this past weekend when I was creating like I was going to run out of DSP (like that’s going to happen!).I am so excited for my Annual Catalogue Launch and Craft Party which is happening this Saturday. I hope you are too and have booked your place for this fun event. Preparation is in full swing and I have been creating lots of samples for you to look at. Last Sunday I did a 14 hour crafting shift in my pjs. Awesome! It was longer than working hours but I didn’t feel it. Crafting makes me happy and relaxes me (but I’ve still got a 100 things to do for Saturday!). If you haven’t let me know you”re coming, please drop me a message. We are going to have a fun afternoon together.

The instant I saw the front cover of the Annual Catalogue, all those blue cards got my attention. The lighthouses, sailing boats, ocean themed cards immediately drew me and I knew the Come Sail Away suite was going to be a favourite of mine. This is a card I’ve created using the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack. This pack comes with varying sized cards, laser cut images such as the one I’ve used on this card and also stickers.

I love the texture of the laser cut cards. One side is white, while the other side has a white-washed look and that’s what I chose to show on this card. I backed it with a piece of Night of Navy cardstock which really made this image pop. The sentiment is die cut with the stitched tag which is from the matching framelits. I stamped the rope in balmy Blue over the sentiment. 

All the elements have been layered on a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock which has been embossed with the lovely High Seas 3D embossing folder. This is a new style embossing folder and will need to be sandwiched through your die cutting machine differently. 

Watch this video for some tips on using the new style 3D embossing folders and dies.

If, like me, you love ALL the products in this suite, the new catalogue makes it easy with a one-product-number ordering system. This item number and other products used are all listed below. Try out the Memories & More card packs and see how easy it is to make a batch of cards.
