Beach Scene Card Made with High Tide Stamps

Beach Scene Card

Hello Friends,

Have you ever "cased"  or copied a card that someone else made?  Well, today's card is CASEd from the 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog on page 145.  Stampin' Up! Catalogs are always so jam packed with cute ideas.  This particular card features that High Tide Stamp Set and the Under the Sea Framelit Dies.   

Homemade Beach Scene Card

I changed up a few little details, but it's basically a CASEd Card.  If you look on page 145 of the Stampin' Up! Catalog, you'll notice that they used the Brights In Color Designer Paper.  I used the Nature's Poem Designer Paper.  The original card used Crumb Cake Ink to stamp the sand.  I used Sahara Sand Ink.  I also used my favorite new die set-Stitched Labels-to make the ticket for my sentiment.

Technique-I used the Masking Technique to create the layers of beach and water.  Which basically means that I covered the beach area while I spritzed the water with Coastal Cabana Ink mixed with a little water.  Then I stamped on the waves with Bermuda Bay Ink.  The beach was stamped with Sahara Sand ink and the grass was stamped with Soft Suede Ink.  The Sentiment was stamped with Tranquil Tide Ink.  You'll find the complete supply list at the bottom of this post.

High Tide Stampin' Up!

The Starfish were cut with the Under the Sea dies and Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake Card Stock.  The sun kissed shimmer was accomplished two ways.  First, I use Shimmery White Card Stock as my base and secondly, I brushed the sun kissed areas with my Wink of Stella Brush.  And finally, the fun little bead elements are the new Tranquil Textures Sprinkles.  They really finished off my card nicely.

Early Release Share What You Love Bundles

Share What You Love Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Does Stampin' Up! Early Release Products get you revved up?   Yay, me too!  The 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog starts June 1, 2018, but.... there a few sweet deals that you can pick up in May!  See the Share What You Love Bundles and the In Color Ink Bundle in this Brochure.

Everything from the Early Release Share What You Love Bundles are so gorgeous, it's hard to know where to begin.  So I made a couple of cards, a Thank You Gift and a Share What You Love Sampler.  Beginner Card Makers, you'll find detailed instructions just below on how to make the pretty card in the center.

Just Getting Started Card Making

How to Make this Just Getting Started Card

This simple, simple card can be made by anyone.   I only used the Just Getting Started Bundle plus my Stampin' Trimmer to make this simple elegant card.  Everything you need is included in this bundle including Very Vanilla Note Cards and Envelopes, Inks and stamps.  The flowers and greenery were stamped directly on the card and envelope.  To lightly color in the flower, I used the small wash stamp, inked it up with Grapefruit Grove Ink, then stamp it twice on a scrap paper and finally stamped within my flower.  This stamping technique is called stamping off.  Then, I cut two pieces of Very Vanilla Card Stock for my sentiment.  I used the larger one as a mat and the smaller one to stamp my sentiment with Old Olive ink.  Card Stock sizes are 2" x 2-1/4" and 2-1/8" x 2-3/8".

Share What You Love Handmade Gift

Ever wish for an inexpensive, but pretty gift to say thanks.  I made this simple Thank You Gift with the Clear Mini Boxes and some of my pretties from my Got to Have it All Bundle.
