Stampin' Up! High Tide Stamp Set

The stamp set used in these cards, is from the 2017 Occasions catalogue.  Everything else is in the Annual Catalogue which runs to May 31, 2017.

When you use this gorgeous set of stamps to make cards, they don't need to be extra detailed and fancy to be beautiful. The simplicity of the card below is what makes it so lovely.  Emboss a background using the Seaside Embossing Folder.  Then, with your Aqua Painters paint in some sky before stamping the birds on the Whisper White card stock.  Add your sentiment and finally fill in the ocean using a stamp from the set and two shades of ink.  Quick, easy and beautiful to behold.




This next card uses a few more stamps included in the set and the Festive Embossing Folder for the background.  The card is monochromatic (single coloured) and the differing shades of grey are achieved by stamping ink off on a scrap of paper before stamping on the Whisper White paper.  Add in a sliver of 1/8" Smoky Slate stitched ribbon, and a couple of Rhinestones for the lighthouse windows and you are done with a second quick, easy and striking card.
