Seagulls By The Bay

February 25, 2019

By The Bay is one of the stamp sets that you can earn for FREE with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration.  I love the images in this set but I have struggled with how to use them.  So today I am sharing one of my creations.  I stamped the seagull image from this stamp set across Whisper White card using Smoky Slate ink.  I used my Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to colour everything, except the seagull images.  I punched two strips of Balmy Blue card using the Decorative Ribbon Border punch and attached one strip behind the top edge and one behind the bottom edge of the stamped and coloured card.  I stamped the greeting from the By The Bay stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of Whisper White card using Smoky Slate ink.  After stamping the Whisper White card, I attached the seagull panel.  The Whisper White panel is attached to Balmy Blue card and then scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.  To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the seagull image across the width of the card using Smoky Slate ink.

I like the way the seagull’s stand out from the coloured background, but not as starkly as they would if I had stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  What do you think?  Do you like it?

bye for now,

    That is lovely Kris, I’m wondering what type of card I can do when I get my By the Bay set, I originally thought it would be good for Scrapbooking, especially the gulls, but I like your idea, so we will see, Narelle

      Thanks Narelle for your comments. I am glad I have you thinking “outside the box”.
