Submarine Life PLUS Octavia & Me!

Create this love card using the Submarine Life Stamp Set and Coordinating Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card by Mary Fish

Why not a Pretty in Pink submarine in this ocean scene!  I love how the coordinating elements of the Submarine Life stamp set and Submarine Builder Punch pull the look together.

WHAT I LOVE! I used the back (smooth) side of the Around the Bend die with Crumb Cake card stock for the ocean floor. The “lacy” side of the same die cut was used for the texture.

If you are looking for a unique and customizable (oodles of colors) gift, check out Jeremy & Stacey’s Craftzilla on-line store.  They started 3D printing in their home as a hobby during COVID and is has become a wonderful business for them.  Some of my favorites (and you can customize colors) are the wine holder, octopus (of course), adorable gnome ornaments and decorative pots.

GROOVY 3D GIFT IDEAS!  Speaking of ocean scenes, Miss Octavia the Octopus has joined me as a pop of personality in my craft room.  Learn more about my craft room organization here.  Octavia is a lovely 3D “girl” created by my nephew, Jeremy, and his partner, Stacey.  Octavia presides over my paper crafting kingdom 24/7!

  1. Mary, these submarine cards are awesome and adorable! The recipients will be thrilled to receive them. I love the novel idea of using the back of the Around the Bend die to get the curve of the sand. Perfect. Love your new Pal, Octavia! Enjoy your day1
