Stampin’ Up Seas the Day Cute Octopus

Stampin’ Up Seas the Day Cute Octopus

Hello Everyone – I love the octopus on my Stampin’ Up Seas the Day Cute Octopus. He is so cute peeking out from behind the seaweed.

I did it again with an embossing folder. Check out how I made the background on today’s creation.

Don't miss seeing how I created the background for this Stampin' Up Seas the Day Cute Octopus.  Sometimes you have to think outside the box!

I am sad to say this is the last week Vicky and I will be playing with the Seas the Day bundle. We have shared quite a few ideas with you so make sure you grab that bundle and make some of our ideas.

I am so sad this bundle did not carry over. Make sure you grab it quick before it retires and is no longer available.

I thought it would be fun to have that octopus hiding in the seaweed. He is just so cute peeking out from behind the leaves.

I also used that octopus for the inside of the card and envelope.

I used the cute octopus to decorate the inside of the card and envelope. Don't miss seeing how I used the octopus with the sea grasses on the Stampin' Up Seas the Day Cute Octopus.  Sometimes you have to think outside the box!

I used the octopus to create this card also. This one also uses the octopus and makes him front and center.

Make sure you head on over to Vicky’s blog to see what she did with this set this week.
