Stampin Up High Tide Inspired by Color Mary Fish Stampinup

  • The High Tide Photopolymer Stamp Set made this card a snap to create. The stamp set is filled with heartfelt sentiments and oceanside (or lakeside) images.

  • The light beams were washed with Clear Wink of Stella.  When the light catches the “wink” right, it really shines. It can be a challenge to capture this in a photo but it’s fabulous in real life!
  • The sentiment was stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink and then again in Crushed Curry (for the word “light,” which is layered on top).
  • The black portion of the sentiment was cropped using the Tags & Labels Framelits Dies.

  • The inside was panel was also framed in Chocolate Chip Designer Series Paper and two more images were used to decorate the inside. You can see the sandpipers peeking out from the inside of the card.

    Love this card, but I especially LOVE how you see color. I would never have noticed the Chocolate Chip in the photo. I always have to go back and look a second time.
