Stampin Up High Tide

Leave a comment

_MG_4639 (Medium)The first male themed card in my very short mens card series is this one, made using the Stampin Up Stamp set called High Tide. There are a lot of stamps in this set, and you can mix and match to make sceneries such as the one I did here. I stamped the sand first, then the lighthouse ( a darker shade of ink pad for the lighthouse), then the sea,( two shades of ink pad here too), the wisps of grass, wading birds,and gulls to finish. The cardstock was the same stampin up shades as the various inks. I look forward to making more scenes with this stamp set. Yesterday was card order day, and I had a lot of floral cards to make so I got out my scrap cardstock, and various flower and foliage dies and spent a couple of hours just die cutting. Once that was done the cards came together very quickly and I have a lot of die cut flowers left,so this week in between work I will make up some more to have ready for the next order!Til tomorrow….

IMG_7225 (Medium)Here is the first card in my Kaisercraft Tropicana series, very appropriate considering the hot weather we are experiencing here just now! On this first card I have used the 6″ pad and matching collectables, as well as some Stampin Up early espresso cardstock and Kaisercraft Sparklets. I think this would make a good retirement card! Til tomorrow….

Retirement Card

Tonights card uses Stampin Up cardstock – Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive, retired patterned paper and the little flower stamp from the Bliss set. The chair and umbrella were fussy cut from Kaisercraft Seaside paper. Tonight I have a couple of orders to do, but I really haven’t been in the craft room much this week, so I’m looking forward to a couple of peaceful hours! Til tomorrow….
