Sisters By The Sea

I have another two day post to share with you.  My card today is very simple and was inspired by this recent photo of me and my sister sitting in her backyard.

Here’s my card.

Simple card using Stampin Up High Tide Stamp Set and Seasonal Layers Thinlits. For cards, inspiration, and supplies visit www.juststamping.com

This card is all about the stamping! I LOVE the High Tide Stamp Set and have used it for many cards. (You know how I love the beach and lighthouses!)

The photopolymer stamps make it so easy to see where you stamp. This was quick & easy to do as I didn’t overthink it and just stamped. I started by stamping the sand along the bottom in Sahara Sand ink. I  stamped off once so it would just be a little color on top of the Soft Sky cardstock.  Then I stamped the water in Dapper Denim ink and sponged lightly using a sponge dauber. I stamped the grass in Old Olive and just kept filling in the spaces until I was happy with the look.

The sentiment is from another favorite stamp set of mine, So Many Shells.

I love the sentiments (as well as the shells) in this stamp set. This saying couldn’t be any more perfect for my sister! It even has an inside sentiment to go with it!

All that was left was to cut out the chairs from Sahara Sand cardstock using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits. I adhered them with a few glue dots. What do you think? Check back tomorrow to see my stepped up version.

I have four sisters and a brother. They are the best gifts my parents ever gave us! All my siblings, nieces and nephews, and now my son (who moved in March) live in Massachusetts.  That means I have lots of people to visit when I come north. I have had a wonderful month long vacation with family and friends and will be heading home this week with lots of memories to cherish.

Here’s some more ideas using the High Tide Stamp Set.

Simple card using So Many Shells Stamp Set from Stampin Up! For simple card inspiration visit www.juststampin.com

I find inspiration for cards everywhere! When my toes are in the sand, I’m in my happy place! I love the beach! I enjoy combing the shore for shells and sea glass (and an occasional shark’s tooth). Just smelling the salt air and listening to the waves relaxes me like nothing else. I can sit on the beach with a good book til the sun goes down. This picture in one of the shops on the Cape caught my eye. It provided the inspiration for today’s card.

Here’s the simple card I made using the So Many Shells stamp set.

I love this saying!  It can be used for many different occasions. The So Many Shells stamp set has great sentiments and gorgeous fonts!

This card was quick & easy to make. I cut a square from a piece of 3 3/4 x 5 Sahara Sand cardstock using the Layering Squares Framelits.  I used Sahara Sand ink to stamp the sentiment. I adhered the Sahara Sand layer to the Whisper White card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals .   I stamped the shell on Very Vanilla with VersaMark ink and added Dazzling Diamonds for a little glitz.  I fussy cut the shell and adhered it with a Stampin’ Dimensional. How simple is that?! Take a look around and see what inspiration you can find for your next card. Check back tomorrow to see a stepped up version of this card.

My vacation is almost over.  I have had so much fun spending time with my son, family, and friends.  It has been a busy month yet relaxing at the same time. When I travel I like to collect something from some of the places I visit.  Can you guess what it is?  Leave a comment with what you think I collect for a chance to win some blog candy. Check back tomorrow to find out (and see my stepped up version of today’s card.)

Guest Stamper Showcasing The Eastern Palace Suite

When I went to Massachusetts for Easter I stayed with my sister Cindy.  She is a great cook, lots of fun to be around, and super talented!!! (She’s the one who made me the beautiful spring wreath for my front door.)  She has a beautiful home with a breathtaking view of the water and an awesome craft room! Needless to say I felt like I was at a resort being pampered.

My pre-order arrived just before I left so I packed the box with the new Eastern Palace Premier Bundle (and some other new product) and we had so much fun creating! Yesterday I shared 3 of the cards I made using the Eastern Palace Suite. (If you missed that post you can click HERE.) Today I am sharing 2 cards my sister made using this suite. Here is a photo of her creating her projects.

img_1393

Here’s the first card she made.

img_1308

She started with the NEW Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock which will be in the new annual catalog June 1st (or you can get it for FREE with the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle in May). She used 2 different patterns of the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper cut at 2 x 5 1/4 each. We both agree that our favorite NEW In Color is Tranquil Tide…it is gorgeous!!  Unfortunately, I could not order the new ribbon just yet but that didn’t stop her…she used the White Organza Ribbon (which I am sad to say is retiring) and dyed it using the Tranquil Tide ink and a sponge dauber.  (You can click HERE to see one of my very first blog posts showcasing this technique.) She stamped the sentiment from the Eastern Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  (I love the way Stampin’ Up! designs products to work together!) She adhered the sentiment to the Eastern Medallion Thinlit Die using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I love this font and sentiment!

img_1309

What a simple and elegant card!

img_1382

She stepped it up with her second card and made a fun gate fold card.

img_1383

The card base is Dapper Denim cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 2 1/8 on each end. The Designer Series Paper measures 2 x 5 3/8.  She cut several dies from the Eastern Medallion Thinlit Dies and layered then on a piece of Very Vanilla and Dapper Denim. She tied a simple knot with Very Vanilla Ribbon to hold the tassel and attached it to the center with a glue dot. It reminds me of a door knocker…perfect for a gate fold card!

img_1385

The center panel is adhered to the card base with Fast Fuse along the left side only to allow the card to open from the center.

img_1386

This card could be used for just about any occasion!

img_1384

I would love it if you left a comment for my sister.  Her cards really showcase the versatility of this bundle. Remember, Stampin’ Up! is offering two different options available for you to purchase from May 1st  – 31st and both come with FREE product. Whether you are a beginning crafter or an avid crafter, Stampin’ Up! has a bundle for you!
