Under the Sea Dies for As You See It Challenges

This week's challenge at As You See It Challenges is a Theme type. And the theme is one that I've been looking forward to for a long time, Beaches! If you know me, you know how I love the beachy look. My house is all beach decor and I buy almost all the beach related products Stampin' Up! has to offer. Here's the Challenge Banner:

Sand, waves, sea shells, and starfish! I love it all. I didn't hesitate, I went straight for my Under the Sea dies and got to work.

  • I used some of the new In colours including Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile in my project. Can you tell which is which by now?
  • I went to the High Tide stamp set for the sentiment and used the Stitched Shapes framelits and the Layering Squares framelits to die cut it and back it with a scallop square shape.
  • Most of the die cuts are from Under the Sea, but I got a couple of the shapes from other sources. The vellum sea weed is from the Smooth Sailing Die Set, and the glittery sand dollar and the starfish I got from the June Paper Pumpkin pack along with the vellum small coral pieces.
  • I don't know if you can see it, but the Seaside Spray piece of cardstock in the middle was embossed using the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder.
  • The Sahara Sand background paper is from the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper pack and it's the perfect colour and texture for sand, don't you think?
Why don't you play along with us at As You See It this weekend? Just make a card in a beachy theme, photograph it and upload it either to your blog or to a public forum such as Pinterest or Splitcoaststampers or Facebook, then find the URL address of the page you've uploaded it to and go to our challenge site and upload it to participate. Enjoy the fun of creating!!

  1. What a peaceful, relaxing beach card. I love the colors you chose, they definitely say 'beach vacation'. I did have to go back and look really close, but I did see the embossing on the middle panel. I bet it really pops in real life. I can almost feel the sand between my toes, lol.

  2. Thanks, Eunice! You can see the embossing better if you click on the bottom photo to enlarge it.


I love to read your comments and get to know you better! Thanks for adding one!
