Lighthouse Birthday

March 15, 2021

Today I am sharing another easel card which uses the High Tide stamp set. I cut the card base from Thick Basic White card and scored and folded it to create the easel. I coloured a strip of the True Love Designer Series Paper using the Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend before attaching to the lower section of the card front. I stamped the sand image from the High Tide stamp set across the bottom of Basic White card using Crumb Cake ink. I stamped the lighthouse images using Smoky Slate and Basic Gray ink. I masked the lighthouse image and stamped the sea image using Balmy Blue ink. With the mask still in place, I used a Blending Brush to add Pool Party ink to the top part of the card. I also used the Blending Brush to add a little more Balmy Blue ink to the sea.

With the mask still in place, I stamped the bird image from the High Tide stamp set (maybe too many birds?) using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I also stamped the grass image across the “sand” using Mossy Meadow ink. I stamped “happy birthday” from the Peaceful Moment stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I punched out the greeting using the Double Oval Punch. I attached the greeting to a Basic Black scalloped oval punched using the same punch. The greeting is attached over the sky part of the card front. I attached the image panel to Balmy Blue card and then the card front, making sure that image panel is centred over the whole card front but only attached to the lower part. To hold the easel in place, I cut Basic Black card using the “rope” and “knot” dies from the Smooth Sailing Dies. I attach the “knot” to the “rope” and then used dimensionals to attach it across the inside of the card.

I have a person in mind for this card and I hope he likes it. What about you? What do you think?

Bye for now,
