Sea you Soon (new stamps & die)

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog.

IT'S NEW RELEASE TIME! The Scrapping Cottage has just added a new brand to the company line. Lil' Bluebird Designs is being introduced with 16 new Photopolymer Clear Stamp Sets and 16 coordinating dies. There are stamps for so many of your card making occasions and then some. The coordinating dies just make it a perfect fit for your card making designs.

Today for your viewing pleasure I am featuring the new Under the Sea stamp set and Coordinating die set. I created a card for my precious granddaughter to let her know I will be seeing her soon. Yes, we are planning a trip to California later this month to visit her. 

So let's get started with some details on how I created my card.

Design Steps: 

I started by stamping the images using tuxedo black ink by Memento and then coloring the images with various alcohol markers.  I selected several of the undersea images to create my little underwater scene. 
The photos below show the alcohol markers I used for coloring. 
Next, I ink blended the undersea background. I used a combo of distress inks, sponge daubers and smooth Bristol cardstock. I think this cardstock blends ink very nicely. Image panel is 4 1/4" x 5".
My sentiment was stamped in an espresso ink. It's a dark brown shade.
I am now ready to start my card assembly. I attached the images with dimensional adhesive. Before I secured the diver and the fish I stamped the water bubbles. I used Versamark ink and embossed with a white embossing powder. After I thought about it I wasn't sure if I should have possibly used a clear embossing powder.  
To finish off my card I attached the image panel to a white card base. Card base is 4 1/4" x 5". 

Well, that's it for me for this week. See you again next Saturday. The DT has been posting sample cards with these new Stamp & Die sets all week. Look back on the Blog if you haven't seen them.

Adorable under the water scene, Mary. I love that the new stamps come with coordinating dies. That way you can cut out the stamped images and use them with the Cottage Cutz dies :-)
Enjoy your weekend.
