BEST CATCH SERIES - Part 3 - Cut Outs

These A2 size cards feature the Best Catch Stamp Set and coordinating Catch of the Day Dies by Stampin' Up!

For this first card I began by stamping the Marbled Stamp in Marina Mist Ink to the front panel of a White Card Base.

Then I used the largest die from the Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies to cut the center out of a standard bottom mat (5-1/4  x 4") of Pear Pizzazz CS and I used the same die to cut the center out of a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of  White Foam.  I glued the 2 pieces together to pop-up the panel.  You could use Dimensionals, if you prefer, but in this case I felt the Pear Pizzazz piece would be much better supported by the piece of foam.

I arranged my cut pieces from the Catch of the Day Dies, that I had colored using Balmy Blue, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, and Soft Suede Stampin' Blend Sets.

Once I had everything arranged, I glued the top panel to the card front using Tombow Glue.

The sentiment is from the March 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit - May Good Things Grow, and was stamped in Old Olive ink on Whisper White CS, and then die cut with a die from the Stitched Labels Framelits set.

I finished the piece by adding a few drops of Glossy Accents to the piece.

SHAKER CARD:  For this 2nd card I cut 2 mats 5-1/4" x 4" - one each from Coastal Cabana and  Pool Party Cardstock.

I used the 2nd largest die from the Stitched Nested Labels Set to cut the opening in the piece of Coastal Cabana CS and two pieces of  5-1/4" x 4" White Foam.  Then I glued these 3 pieces together inserting a piece of clear Window Plastic under the Coastal Cabana piece.

I stamped the Pool Party CS with the fish and hook from the  Best Catch Stamp set using Memento Black Ink, Coral from the June 2019 Paper Pumpkin A Little Smile Stamp Set, and "Bubbles" from the Artisan Textures Stamp Set in Coastal Cabana Ink.  The fish was colored with Bermuda Bay and Crumb Cake Stampin' Blend Sets.  

I sprinkled a mixture of Sequins into the center of the Pool Party piece and then the top 3 pieces (2 foam and Coastal Cabana pieces) were glued to the Pool Party Piece. This finished piece was wrapped with Twine and then glued to a White Card Base.
