Stamping Inkspiration October Blog Hop Sketch Challenge

Welcome to the Stamping Inkspiration October Blog Hop as we have fun with a Sketch Challenge this month. We have been challenged to create a card or 3D project using the sketch below to share with you all. Our wonderful Design Team members will be sharing their projects and ideas to help spark your creativity. 
Today's card design is a fun design featuring the Seal of Approval stamp set from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. I paired it with one of the designs from the Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper Host Reward, which you can earn Free with a qualifying order or party. The scalloped design made me think of waves, which works well with the cute seals in the stamp set. My card is more of an all occasion design, but you could easily change the sentiment to create a non-traditional holiday card.

This card was so much fun to design and I love the non-traditional theme of this Christmas stamp set. I wanted to create the look and feel of the ocean for my background, so I used the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder to add texture to the Pool Party cardstock layer. I attached the torn pieces of the designer series paper to either side of the embossed Pool Party layer, to create the look of waves to coordinate with my focal image. For the cute seal image, I stamped it with Smoky Slate Classic ink onto a piece of Basic White cardstock and fussy cut it out with Paper Snips. I stamped the snowflakes and water image onto the Basic White circle using Pool Party Classic ink, stamping off once on a scrap piece of paper. I attached the seal onto the circle with Stampin' Dimensionals and added several Basic Rhinestones to the centers of three of the snowflakes. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image with Silver embossing powder. I added a piece of the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon on the left side of the card front, over the designer series paper. 
To assemble the card design, I attached the Basic White circle to the Coastal Cabana circle and added it to the card front on the left side with Stampin' Dimensionals, slightly overlapping the ribbon. I then added the sentiment to the right side of the circle, so that it slightly overlaps the focal circle. To complete the design, I tied a bow with the Glittered Organdy Ribbon and attached it to the top left side of the circle. For a touch of sparkle, I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the stamped snowflakes and water on the focal circle. I love how this card design turned out. This design is so versatile and can be used for so many occasions.
