Welcome back!  Today I am sharing another project using the really fun High Tide stamp set from the Occasions catalog.  

  High Tide Stamp Set and Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack


I belong to the Luv 2 Stamp Group as my Stampin' Up! family.  It is full of fun, creative people that enjoy creating and sharing together.  We have group meetings, and because we are spread all over the US, we meet online to share.  These events are fun!  I was fortunate to not only share this project with the group during our recent event, but also at Stampin' Up! On Stage a few months ago as it's debut. You may remember this sneak peak, or perhaps this one, which I blogged about back in December, using this set as well.  I am just sayin', this set is really fun to create with!  Once I started working with it, the projects came together in a snap!

This card is a perfect masculine birthday, congratulations, or thinking of you card. Those can be hard to come by!  It is simple stamping, and layered nicely using this awesome stripe from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper stack.  


To Recreate this Card

Start with a card base of Basic Gray cardstock cut to 4 1/4" x 11" and scored at 5 1/5".  Add a layer of Basic Gray diagonal stripe designer series paper from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper stack, cut to 3 3/4" x 5", and set aside.  Next, stamp the lighthouse in Real Red ink on a 2 5/8" x 3 7/8" piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The sand was created using Crumb Cake ink, then some grass in Wild Wasabi.  Adhere the lighthouse scene to a 2 3/4" x 4" piece of Basic Gray cardstock.  I added Linen Thread to the top of this layer, and tied in a knot.  Adhere the lighthouse layer to your cardbase with dimensionals.  Finally, I stamped my sentiment, from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set, in Basic Black ink, on a 3/8" strip of Whisper White, than cut the ends banner style, and adhered over the bottom of the card.  That's it, hope you like it!
