Kylie’s International Blog Highlights Gallery-May 2023: Torn Paper Sea Turtle Thank You Card

Hello, thank you for visiting Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. I am Theresa, an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. I am super excited to be participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight Gallery with my torn paper Sea Turtle Thank You card. Projects in this gallery are designed by Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world! The theme for this Gallery is “Thank You”.

We often forget those simple words “Thank you”. However, it is super important to show appreciation to the people in your life who have helped you, supported you or inspired you. One way to express gratitude is to send a handmade thank you card. Discover the joy in making and sending a handmade card!

I am using torn card stock to create the background “water” for these cute sea turtles!

This Sea Turtle Thank You Card showcases the Sea Turtle stamp set in the new 2023-34 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.

Create the Background

  1. Adhere several of the torn Misty Moonlight cs strips onto the 4″ x 5 1/4″ Boho Blue cs with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  2. Stamp some bubbles in Boho Blue ink. Then use the Pumpkin Pie ink to stamp some fish.
  3. Place the card piece in the Painted Textures Embossing Folder and run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.


  1. Use a Sponge Dauber and the Garden Green Ink to apply ink to the head, tail and extremities of the baby sea turtle.
  2. Now use another Sponge Dauber and the Early Expresso Ink to daub ink onto the shell. Before the ink dries, coat the shell with Clear Emboss Powder. If some powder gets on the Garden Green Ink, use a dry paint brush to brush it away.
  3. Use the Heat Tool. Repeat until you have 4 turtles.
  4. Fussy cut.
  5. Use the Garden Green Ink and the 2 1/2″ x 3″ Very Vanilla cs to stamp the medium “Thank You” from the Go To Greetings stamp set on one end.
  6. Punch the sentiment out with the smooth oval of the Double Oval Punch.
  7. Also punch a smooth oval from the Garden Green cs. Adhere to the back of the Very Vanilla cs oval, slightly off-set.
  8. Use the Boho Blue Ink to stamp some bubbles in the lower right-hand corner of the 4″ x 5 1/4″ Very Vanilla cs.

Putting it all Together

  1. Adhere the Very Vanilla cs with the Boho Blue bubbles on it to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam cs card base.
  2. Use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere one of the turtles to the inside.
  3. Apply Wink of Stella to the Misty Moonlight cs “waves”.
  4. Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the other 3 sea turtles and adhere to the background.
  5. Adhere the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Adhere the card front to the front of the Soft Sea Foam cs card base.
  7. Add the Boho Blue In Color Dots for more “bubbles”.

Hello, my name is Theresa. I have 4 children and a wonderful husband of 30 years. I am a retired Family Physician. I love having time now to create and craft, so much so that I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I have been a demonstrator more than 5 years and am having a blast! Not only do I get to craft, I meet new friends from all over the world! Crafting gives me something positive to do and to share with others. I love to have my monthly Zoom Card Making Classes so others can craft with me. I have so much fun creating the cards for others to make! My blog was initially geared toward the beginner stamper in order to help others get started stamping on their own at home. If you need information to get started, look for my first blogs. My more recent posts have been cards and projects for Blog Hops and challenges. Stop by to see my projects and those of folks from around the world! Add more creativity to your life today!
