Wetlands – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #613

Hey There,

I’m a little over whelmed by all the new Stampin’ Up! things I have here to play with.  Do you ever get that way?  So many toys, so little time, lol.  It’s a terrible problem, not!

I did finally grab out some of my very favorites from the new catalog and decided we would go to the beach together.  At least on paper.  Check it out, I used the Stampin’  Up! Wetlands set, LOVE IT!!!!   There is not a stamp in this set I could do without.  Hope you try this tutorial out.  Happy Stamping!


I’ve added the featured card of the day to my sales page where you will also find some great deals on retired stamp sets and my brayer video.  CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT

Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Wetlands (item #126697) and Woodgrain (item #128763)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Soft Suede

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Old Olive, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Soft Sky and Island Indigo

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Brayer, Neutral Candy Dots, Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder (item #129984), Deco Labels Framelits (item #130102), Sponges and a post it note


I love Stampin’ Up’s framelits and this new set of Deco Labels is no exception.  So I started out this project with them.

Used the second to the largest framelit to cut out my main image panel with the Big Shot and Whisper White card stock.

Brayered Soft Sky ink on the top half of the card stock.

Brayered Island Indigo ink on the very top of the card stock.

Masked part of the sky area with a post it note and lightly sponged Island ink at the post it note’s edge to create my horizon line.

Removed the mask and sponged Crumb Cake ink at the bottom of the card stock to create the sand.

Stamped the grasses stamp from the Wetlands stamp set 3 times using Old Olive ink.

Sponged Soft Suede at the bottom of the card stock and then around the edges.


Used the largest Deco Labels Framelit, Big Shot Machine and Crumb Cake card stock and cut out my layer for the back of the main image panel.

Stamped the Woodgrain stamp on the Crumb Cake panel using Soft Suede ink.

Sponged Soft Suede ink on the edges of the card stock.

Cut a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Crumb Cake card stock and embossed it using the new Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder and Big Shot Machine.

Lightly brayered Soft Suede ink over the embossed image to bring out more and to grunge up the card stock a bit.

Sponged Early Espresso ink around the edges.

Added a 4.25″ x 5.5″ Early Espesso panel, Whisper White card base and Soft Suede Candy Dots.

Here is the finished card.



May your day be filled with love and laughter!

Until my next post. . . . . .

Huge Hugs!
