Seashell Jar and Happy Birthday, Laura!

Hello Friends! It's a very special day today - our Stampendoulicious Fairy Stamp Mother, fantastic DT coordinator, talented crafter and most importantly amazing friend Laura Weed is celebrating her birthday! So the Stampendous gang are hosting a birthday hop today to show how much we love our Fairy Stamp Mother! 

I hope you will join me and my DT Sisters to wish Laura a very happy birthday - we'd love it if you hopped along to see what inspiration we're sharing today for this occasion. It may be a welcomed break from Christmas cards lol :-). Here's who's hopping today:



I'm sharing a cute nautical card I made a while ago :).

Supplies

From Stampendous: 

Seashell Jar 
Near the Sea 
Andy Skinner Cling Industrial Set 
Shabby Blue Embossing Enamel 
Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel 
Golden Sand Embossing Powder 
Pop Up Die Set 
Taupe Color Fragments 
Jumbo Perfectly Clear™ Acrylic Handle 
Mixed Media White Paper

Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, Evergreen & Tea Dye Distress Inks (Ranger Ink), Glossy Accents, burlap panel, charms and decorative pins, Liquid Pearls, adhesive pearls Spellbinders Labels One
Instructions:
1. Create a 6x6" card blank from turquoise cardstock
2. Using scraps of white card repeatedly stamp crackle pattern from the Industrial set with Evergreen ink. Cut the cards into strips of varying width and ink up the edges.
3. Arrange the strips to resemble wood planks and adhere to the card leaving a 1/16" border (as shown). Add a piece of burlap positioning it diagonally.
4. Stamp the Sea Shell Jar in black onto Mixed Media paper and color in (I used Spectrum Noir markers).
5. Using encrusted jewel technique melt in Shabby Blue, Aged Ivory, Golden Sand and Taupe Color 6. Fragments into the background.
7. Die cut your stamped panel with Labels One die and adhere to a mat 1/16" bigger than the stamped panel (use the die as a template for fussy cutting).
8. Cover the jar with Glossy Accents and allow to dry fully. Adhere the panel to the card over 3D Foam Squares.
9. Stamp the Near The Sea sentiment onto white card and die cut using a bezel/label die from the Pop Up Die Set. Ink the edges.
10. Finish the card with a ribbon bow, pearls, charms and decorative pins.


Happy birthday Miss Laura! Hope you have an amazing day!
