High Tide again

August 11, 2017

Is anyone else in love with the gorgeous High Tide stamp set?  I think it is so cool how you can create beautiful landscape scenes using these awesome stamps.  The card I am sharing today will make its debut in one of my Beachmere classes.  I think it has a male kind of feel to it and because I haven’t added a sentiment, hopefully it will fit the bill for several kinds of occasions.

I attached Sahara Sand card to the left hand side of Whisper White card and attached Basic Black card across the bottom of the panel.  I embossed the card using the Seaside Embossing Folder and attached the panel to scored and folded Island Indigo card.  Because I wasn’t sure just how much of the picture would show in the largest Oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, I created the image panel on a larger than necessary piece of Whisper White card.  The lighthouse from the High Tide stamp set is stamped in Smoky Slate and Memento Tuxedo Black ink with the sand stamped in Sahara Sand ink.  I stamped the sea using Island Indigo ink and the grass using Always Artichoke ink.  The lighthouse beam is stamped in Crushed Curry and the flying birds using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Once I had stamped all the pieces, I laid the oval over the top and because the panel was larger than I needed I could choose which section I wanted to cut out.  The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the small sand image onto the bottom left hand corner of Whisper White card Smoky Slate ink.  The grass is stamped using Always Artichoke ink.

So, so simple but I love it.  What about you?  What do you think?

Bye for now,
