Happy Birthday! By the Dock Stamp Set

Hello Friends,

I hope everyone is healthy and happy!

Today’s project is a fun card using By the Dock stamp set with the coordinating Dockside Dies. This card is so fun to create using water coloring techniques, creating a fun visual textured artsy kind you affect to a masculine card. The coordinating dies make it very simple to create fun dimension.


Card Measurements:

  • Card Base Whisper White Card Stock 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2′ scored at 4 1/4″
  • Shimmery White Card Stock 5″ x 4 ″
  • Designer Series Paper 5″ x 4″
  • Scraps Whisper White card stock


To create your first layer use your Shimmery White card stock and the Stampin Spritzer, I added a few drops of Misty moonlight ink refill and some water, spritz the entire background now let dry.(Once dry I roughed up the edges with paper snips)

Now stamp your dock, boat, and Seagal images using it Stazon ink using your Water Painter and Sahara Sand, Misty Moonlight, and a touch of Smoky Slate ink color in your objects. Now using the coordinating a Dockside Dies to cut out all of your images.

Using a piece of Whisper White card stock and the Tasteful Labels Dies, the largest circle, create a label, and then stamped the sentiment” happy birthday” from By the Dock stamp set onto the circle.

Now I colored the Whisper White ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season combo pack using Misty Moonlight Stampin Blend Markers, glue to the back of the sentiment.

To assemble the card I used a piece of Misty Moonlight In Color Designer Series Paper placed on an angle on my card base. I added the dock With Dimensionals onto the watercolored layer, glue down flat the boat as well as a few seagulls I attached the sentiment using Dimensionals and added a few of the2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots,  then placed my watercolored background layer on an angle on top of the Misty Moonlight Designer Series Paper using Dimensionals to add a bit depth.
