High Tide

Do you hear the beach calling your name?  Or the light from the lighthouse beckoning you?  Well, this is one stamp set that you’re definitely going to want to play with in your craft room!  The High Tide is a a Two-Step Stampin’ set that can be used in lots of different ways.  The images are perfect for someone who loves the beach, nature and the outdoors.  Change the colors, and it makes a handsome masculine card.  And paired the right sentiment, you’ll make a lovely encouragement card for someone special.

Here, I used my watercolor pencils and aqua painters to create a soft sunrise using just three colors:  Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Pacific Point.

Here I used the two-step stampin’ technique to create depth and changed the colors to create a more masculine card using Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist, Soft Sky and Crumb Cake inks.

And finally, here are some more ideas from the catalog.

This is a great set — did you notice how the flying seagulls were used differently in each card design?  This is accomplished by selectively inking the stamp image plus thoughtful placement.  

Until next time, happy crafting and inspiration wishes!
