Shark Frenzy Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! Daddy Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Does a shark qualify as a critter?  Well, I do believe they are adorable and cute, so I decided that they qualified just fine. 

I never really jumped on the “Baby Shark” bandwagon, I am not even sure I have heard the song outside of other people singing it.  But…I was in the mood to watercolor as it seems like it has been so long since I have. 

This bundle was so fun to use and the images were perfect for fulfilling my need to add a touch of color with a Water Painter and Classic Ink.

NOTE: This card is large, designed to fit a full sheet of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.

Begin by cutting a piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock to 10 1/2 x 7 1/4. Score and fold at 5 1/4.

Adhere a 5 1/8 x 7 1/8 piece of Night of Navy Cardstock to the card base with Stampin’ Seal.

Use a Water Painter and the following Classic Inks to create the ocean scene onto a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper: Seaside Spray (sky), Night of Navy and Pacific Point (sea).  Allow to dry completely. Adhere to the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

TIP: I kept my Water Painters on the dryer side to create the brushed look in the sky and sea.  I started with Pacific Point on the bottom then added Night of Navy for some depth.

Use a Stamparatus to stamp the sharks in Jet Black Stazōn Ink onto a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock. Color with a Water Painter and Smoky Slate Classic Ink.  Crop with the coordinating Shark Dies and Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use a Water Painter to color a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock with the following colors:  Pear Pizzazz (plants), Pool Party (bubbles).  Adhere to an Adhesive Sheet. Crop with the coordinating Shark Dies and Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.  Adhere to the card as shown.

Use a Stamparatus to position and stamp “Daddy” in Night of Navy Classic Ink as shown.

Use a Stamparatus to position and stamp the “I Love You” in Versamark Ink.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Set with a Heat Tool.

Adhere a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock to a Foam Adhesive Sheet.  Crop the “SHARK” using the Playful Alphabets Dies and a Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.  Adhere to the card as shown.

  1. Stesha, I am always amazed at what you come up with. This is adorable. Both of my children are in their 30’s so I’m a bit removed from “Baby Shark”, but I have heard the song and it does stay with me. It’s with me right now! I never saw the detailed dies in this Bundle. Think I’ll have to take a second look at it. Clever card!

  2. Stesha, I love your water coloring! I have heard that baby shark song, way more than I ever thought I would in my lifetime 🙂 This card captures that Daddy Shark perfectly! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Wow, I just love this card, Stesha! I need to get over my fear of watercoloring and you have me so close to getting this adorable bundle! I’m just afraid that I will only use the bubbles! Thank you for joining the hop this month!
