NEW Waterfront Stamp Set Friend Card

Learn how to create a simple friend card using Stampin Up Waterfront - Mary Fish StampinUp Ideas

Wow!  The Waterfront Photopolymer Stamp Set can make anyone a watercoloring artist!  The soft, buildable images create scenes from north woods to beach front.  It’s available Jan. 3, when the Occasions Catalog begins.

The Waterfront stamp set was inspired by Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and Million Dollar Sales Achiever Connie Heisey.

I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.


  • The inspiration for the layout of my Waterfront friend card is a sample in the Occasions Catalog.  It’s a CASE (Copy And Share with Everyone) with a few tweaks!

  • Inking extravaganza!  One of the benefits of the Waterfront stamp set is the ability to play with color to create depth and texture.  I used Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Lemon Lime Twist, Dapper Denim, Soft Sky and Sahara Sand.
  • I found “stamping off” on a piece of scratch paper before stamping the sun (Crushed Curry), lake (Dapper Denim and Soft Sky) and texture (Dapper Denim) helped to keep the look balanced.

  1. Thank you, Dawn. Happy to have you CASE. It’s based on a similar card I copied myself :). The card base is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. I no longer have the card so suggest you do the stamping and then create the bottom two layers (Olive and Denim) at equal distances. It’s not a rectangle in direct proportion to the card base (more room at top and bottom than side to side).

  2. This is so beautiful! I would love to case it for my volunteer senior center card. May I? What are the card layer dimensions?

  3. Beautiful card Mary!

  4. I love this card and so happy you showcased that stamp set I’ve been eyeing it – soon I will be buying it!!!

  12. Beautiful, Mary! This is my favorite set in the new catalog. I love the look and that I can pull out several different color ink pads and stamp away. Lately I stamp in black so much, it’s fun to use the other colors 😊
