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”.

Stampin’ Up!® Turtle Friends Birthday for the Paper Players PP542- Sketch Challenge

Today I have card for The Paper Players Challenge which is a sketch challenge.

Here is the card I came up with using the Turtle Friends stamp set by Stampin’ Up! This is such a cute set. My Mom loved turtles. She collected little turtle figurines. When she passed away, each of her 16 grandchildren were allowed to select one of the turtle figurines to take with them. This card is a tribute to her.

The paper on the lower third of the card is from the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper. The turtle is stamped in Shaded Spruce ink onto Just Jade Card Stock (CS). The bird is stamped in Pacific Point ink onto Balmy Blue CS. The card base is Balmy Blue CS and is embossed with the new Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. The rhinestones are from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Here is a peek at the inside. So adorable!

For more ideas from this sketch challenge visit The Paper Players to see how other crafters used the sketch for their cards.
