A Boat Load of Birthday Presents

Good Morning my Newtonites!!!!!  Today, I am here and on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog with a card and a video!  For this card I used SEA-sons Greetings in a non holiday way!   I love getting the most out of my stamps by using in them all different ways then intended. 

This card has a LOT and I mean a LOT of die cutting!  But, it made for a quick card in the long run.  I started out by cutting my waves out of vellum and used Ink to color them.  I layered them to create an ocean scene. Then I die cut my polaroid and tab for my sentiment. Colored up the birthday presents in the boat and placed it behind a few vellum waves for a realistic look.   Then I thought to myself......this still needs something. So I embossed the clouds onto white card stock for a subtle look. 

Since I have been getting so many questions on how did I do the embossing on previous cards. I decided to make a video on a few different types of mediums  you can run through a dry embossing folder for fun techniques!!!!!

I hope you are inspired by my video and use this technique on your future cards for the Inky Paws Challenge! 

Happy Stampin!
