By The Bay Clam Cards

Hi Stamping Friends!

Tomorrow is the last day to place an order to earn my 5-Card or 10-Card By The Bay LIVE Class. It's such a bummer that the dies are not currently available! Check below for some options for getting this kit…

Seaside Bay Dies Availability—The Seaside Bay Dies are currently not available and are expected back in stock around March 27, 2023. If you order the stamps without the dies, you will not be able to receive the 10% Bundle discount.

It's always frustrating with the timing of my classes unfortunately coincides with some of the products not being available. All we can do is work around it the best we can! 

If you're in need of the Seaside Bay Dies to complete my class, here are some options:

  • Place an order for other items now to qualify for the class; purchase the discounted Seaside Bay bundle once it's available March 27.
  • Sacrifice the discount; purchase the Seaside Bay stamps now and the dies once they are available March 27.
  • Buy only the Seaside Bay stamps. I provide the die-cuts needed for the class. You can fussy-cut any stamped images that are die-cut.
  • Contact me by March 14 and request to purchase the By The Bay LIVE Class for the $20 flat fee, then order the bundle when it's available.
  • Contact me by March 14 and let me know you will be ordering the Bundle as soon as it's available. I will hold a kit for you!
  • My next class will feature the Regency Park suite, which includes the Petal Park and Sentiment Park Bundles. Purchase those ahead of time to qualify for this class, then purchase the Seaside Bay Bundle later to qualify for the Regency Park class kit.

Seaside bay clam shell pearl - two cool
By The Bay Clam Cards
Clam or oyster? I am still confused about which ones have the pearl…do you know? I've been told this is a clam, so that's what I'm going with…LOL! Anyway, this card came together so easily with the cool, coordinating clam patterned By The Bay Designer Series Paper. It's the final pair of cards from my class!
Seaside bay you're a peal clam
Background Basics—This card begins by adhering a 3" x 3" piece of By The Bay DSP to a 3-1/8" x 3-1/8" piece of Night of Navy cardstock. I tied some Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon around the layers. Next, I stamped the Seaside Bay sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto a 4-3/4" x 3-1/2" piece of Basic White cardstock, leaving plenty of room for the square backdrop piece. It's matted onto a 4-7/8" x 3-5/8" piece of Gray Granite cardstock, then mounted onto a Balmy Blue card base. Then, I adhered the square backdrop onto that.

Background Elements—I die-cut some Gray Granite long grass and a Petal Pink shell with the Seaside Bay Dies. They are adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Cool Clam—I stamped the Seaside Bay clam image in Night of Navy ink onto Basic White, then colored in the image with Stampin' Blends Markers. I used Petal Pink, Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Gray Granite Blends colors to try to mimic the look of the clams on the DSP. Then, I die-cut it with the Seaside Bay Dies and popped it up with Dimensionals. It's finished with a single, large Flat Adhesive-Backed Pearl.
Supplies for this card will be included in the 5-Card LIVE Class Kit.

Two Cool—I tried a little bit of a different layout for the second card. This time, I stamped another Seaside Bay sentiment in Night of Navy at the bottom of a 2-1/4" x 3-1/2" piece of Basic White. It's layered onto a 2-3/8" x 3-5/8" piece of Night of Navy and mounted onto a Gray Granite card base. 

Next, I adhered a different clam DSP pattern measuring 3" x 3" to a 3-1/8" x 3-1/8" piece of Petal Pink. It's tied with some Balmy Blue Variegated Ribbon, then adhered to the card front.

Background Elements—I die-cut the two Balmy Blue grassy elements and two sizes of Petal Pink shells using the Seaside Bay Dies, then adhered them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 
Cool Clam—I stamped and colored the clam the same way as the original card, adding a large Flat Pearl in the shell and a couple of smaller ones above.
You'll receive supplies for this card in your 10-Card Kit.
