Seaside Seashells Paper Piecing

 If you know me from reading my blog, you'll know that I have a soft spot for anything coastal or sea related, so you can imagine that I jumped at the chance to purchase the whole *Sand & Sea Suite from the new 2021 Jan/Jun Mini Catalogue, which will be going live soon on Jan. 5. But this is the first time I've had a chance to get it out and play with it as I designed the first card for my Online Technique Class in January, which will be based on this suite, with a focus on the *Seashells 3D Embossing Folder and the *Seaside Seashells Dies.

I had two designs for this card originally, one with paper piecing using Silver Foil Sheets and one without, and I couldn't decide which one to do for the class, so I did a poll on Instagram and Facebook between the two:

The results of the poll were conclusive: This design which included the paper piecing with the Silver Foil won hands down - 100%!

I took a piece of the *Pearlescent Specialty Paper that is part of this suite and embossed it using the *Seashells 3D Embossing Folder. I then used the *Seaside Seashells dies to die cut the whole embossed design at once as you can see in the upper left photo, which is so cool to be able to do. For the first design, I just glued that on a Basic Black card base and added some Pearl Basic Jewels.

But to add that really cool look, I first die cut the same design out of a Silver Foil Sheet and glued it to the Basic Black card base. Then I took the *Pearlescent Specialty Paper version that is embossed with the *Seashells 3D Embossing Folder and die cut the design. I carefully fussy cut out all the sea shells and glued them to the foil design exactly where they fit to achieve the above look.

The sentiment is from the *Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set that bundles with the *Seaside Seashells dies, and it is die cut with the Tasteful Labels dies. I'll have all the cards from the class ready to show you shortly, and I'll post the class.
