Waterfront Stampin' Up!

Waterfront for the Avid Stamper

Hello Friends,

I love to create beautiful scenes with stamps, ink and paper.  Scenery stamp sets such a the Waterfront stamp set, the  Sending Sunshine stamp set and the Snow Front stamp set are so, so easy to use.  Plus, they work for stampers of all skill levels from beginner to avid stampers.  All 3 Stamp sets, Snow Front, Sending Sunshine and the Waterfront,  are going away as of May 3, so if you would like to give these fantastic scenery stamp sets a try, scoop them up before they are gone for good.

Keep going.  There's cards ideas for card makers of all skill levels below, plus 3 Video Tutorials for making cards!

Waterfront Stampin' Up!

Waterfront for the Beginner Stamper

Watch the step by step tutorial below to learn the basics of card making.  It's a 101 class for the Beginner Card Maker.


This cute but simple card was made with stamps, ink, and paper.  The Waterfront stamp set creates a lovely scene for the front of the card.

Sending Sunshine Stampin' Up!

Sending Sunshine for the Casual Stamper

To make this card, I inked my water stamps with Soft Sea Foam ink and layered the two stamps.  Next, I stamped the sunshine using So Saffron Ink.  I wanted a softer blue for my clouds, so I stamped off my Seaside Spray ink and then stamped my clouds.  The leaves and sentiment were stamped with Just Jade Ink.

Stamping Techniques

Masking-This technique is just what it sounds like.  We have all masked areas before painting a room.  The concept is the same for card masking.  Simply block off an area.  On today's card, I masked the bottom part of my card while building my horizon.  For masking, you can try a variety of materials such as Stamping Mask Paper, Post It Notes or card stock.

I sponged the horizon with Seaside Spray, Flirty Flamingo and So Saffron inks.  The beach area was sponged with Sahara Sand ink.

I fussy cut around the words.
