Card for A Friend with Waves of the Ocean Designer Series Paper

Card-for-friend-waves-of-the-ocean-DSPToday's project is a card for a friend using the Waves of the Ocean Designer Series Paper and a sentiment from the Easter Friends stamp set.

My goal is to share how you can mix and match products, especially our patterned paper, with stamp sets and dies from outside the suite (A suite is a group of like-themed products) and make some beautiful cards.

The Waves of the Ocean Suite includes an early release bundle from the upcoming new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog as well as some limited time coordinating products that are only available while supplies last.


Do you love the beach, live near the ocean, or have traveled to destinations with beautiful waterfronts?  This is the collection for you!

Currently, all products are still available and you can purchase the entire collection with just one item number HERE.

Maybe, like me, you love the beautiful designer paper, the shiny foils, and the gorgeous rhinestones? You can use these limited-time products with more than just this themed bundle.  Be sure to tune in to my YouTube Premiere this week to see how I do just that!
In the meantime, click the links below to get some of these beautiful coordinating products:

Makeover Magic #1- Double Z Fold


It's Monday and in this post, you'll see my first in a series of Makeover Magic videos featuring a Double Z Fun Fold.  In the past, I've shared something similar on Makeover Mondays but this time you'll see an introduction added to a previously recorded video with a project created with different Stampin' Up! products. 

In this project, the precious spring-time stamp set, Easter Friends Cling Stamp Set (English) [157737] takes center stage.  This stamp set was featured in a previous YouTube Premiere with this cute card.
