Waterfront Birthday

January 19, 2018

I loved the Waterfront stamp set when I first saw it in the Occasions Catalogue.  It is so simple to create wonderful scenes to use on all kinds of cards.  Today I am going to share with you the first card I made of several using this stamp set and the same colours but different techniques to achieve lots of different finishes.  For this card I stamped “happiest of birthdays to you” from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of Whisper White card using Soft Suede ink.  The stamped card is attached to scored and folded Garden Green card.  I stamped the “mountain” image twice onto Whisper White card using Garden Green ink.  I stamped the same image again, but this time stamping off onto scrap paper first.  I stamped the “sand” using Crushed Curry ink and the “water” using the same image and Marina Mist ink.  I stamped the dotted image over the water using Dapper Denim ink.  I stamped the palm tree stems using Soft Suede ink and the leaves using Tranquil Tide ink.  I also stamped the sun using Crushed Curry ink.  The panel is attached to Garden Green card and then the card front.  I found that the easiest way to create the image panel was to stamp onto a larger piece of card than I wanted and then cut it down to suit the card.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the sand using Crushed Curry ink onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card.  I also stamped the palm tree stem and leaves using the Soft Suede and Tranquil Tide ink.

A simple card but I think kind of cute.  Tomorrow I will share a card made using the same stamps and colours but with a completely different look.

Bye for now,

    Love your card. Do you mind if I case it? I need a birthday card for someone who loves palm trees.
