Hello friends, we’re so excited to welcome our latest Stamp of the Month, called Age of Aquarium! It includes all the stamps you need to create an under the sea spectacular, plus we’ll show you a super fun die set that makes a magical place for our fishy friends to live!
Ready for some inspiration? Look at this beautiful card using the Age of Aquarium stamp set.
To create this card:
Sponge Pool Play ink across a 3×4.25-in. Whip Cream panel. (Don’t fill the entire panel with color.) Stamp coral around the edges of panel with Rich Coral and Citrus Cooler inks. Next, stamp the seagrass in Fresh Forest ink. Then stamp a school of fish with Blue Lagoon ink. Finish off the scene by sponging Blue Lagoon ink around the edges to add depth to your under the sea scene. Last, stamp a few bubbles and add an embossed sentiment on top.

Next up, have you ever made a tunnel card? Check out this underwater scene with so much EXTRA dimension!
Make a tunnel card with nesting die shapes like our Journey Circles Die Set. We layered two panels with die-cut circles onto a Huckleberry Fusion background panel. Layers of foam squares give lots of depth to our scene. Did you notice that embossed texture? Doesn’t it make the perfect water pattern? It’s actually the FSJ Barn Wall Embossing Folder, but when it’s turned sideways, it looks just like waves!
As promised, we also have a creative and fun die set that will bring your Age of Aquarium scenes to life! This is the Aquarium Box Die Set. Assemble this to make a three dimensional box that’s perfect for making a shaker card – plus it perfectly fits a gift card inside!
Look what a fun project this creates – it’s the perfect home for your stamped underwater scene!
There’s so much more inspiration to see, so check out this video with three project tutorials, plus more ideas and a closeup look at the Aquarium Box Die!
