Hello Heffy Doodlers!! It’s Channin here and in today’s video I demonstrate how to create this fun birthday card with the new A Little Shellfish Stamp Set and the new Build a Cabin Die! I also share my favorite method for coloring and share a couple tips for working with the new Tiny Waves Stencil. Watch the video below or over on our YouTube channel.

First I traced a slope from the First Snow Stencil onto a 3” x 5 1/2” panel of white cardstock. I then fussy cut the slope out and then ink blended it with Antique Linen and Tea Dye distress oxides. Next, I watered down some distress oxides and inks then splattered the ink over the slope to create the look of sand. I then added pixie spray to the back of the Tiny Waves Die and the stuck it down onto an A2 top-folding white cardbase and masked off the upper quarter with a piece of painters tape. Next, I ink blended over the stencil with Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch distress oxides. I then removed the stencil, masked off the upper quarter again, and then ink blended with the same oxides once more. I then placed a mask I made out of contact paper with the Sliver Linings Could Border Dies onto the sky and ink blended clouds with Tumbled Glass distress oxide.
Next, I die cut a beach hut as well as trim and a life-preserver out of white cardstock using the Build a Cabin Die set. I then ink blended the trim and many of the accessories with distress oxides. I then adhered the pieces together and set the beach hut aside.
Next, I stamped several images from the A Little Shellfish Stamp Set in Versafine Onyx Black onto bristol paper. I then watercolored my images in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. When I had finished coloring the images I then die cut them out with the matching dies and then added some white gel pen details. Next, I stamped a sentiment onto my card front in Versafine and then finished the card by adhering the sand layer and then all the remaining die cuts.
I hope you enjoyed my card and video! Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
