.. with “By the Tide” for another challenge over at Can You Case ItCYCI100-232x300

I thought this a perfect way to create a card for my one of my brother’s birthdays coming up in January and decided to have a play with one of the punches that was sitting on my desk & not yet put away or am I being lazy?  I often like to stretch my supplies & use them in other ways – gets me out of my comfort zone.

After deciding to go with Marina Mist & Night of Navy – let’s face it, you don’t have a choice when you are playing with this set – I opted to add a little bit of Soft Suede to break it up a little, so I used it as a layer & also for my greeting.

Thank you to the Design Team for a great challenge.

107 – Celebrate – By the Tide


Products used to create my card –

By the Tide…

I had a bit of a play with  friend of mine the other day & decided that we would play with the great Technique – Background Wash006wmm-blog but with a twist!

As I hadn’t had a couple of my favourite sets out for awhile, I thought it was time for “By the Seaside” & “By the Tide” left the shelves & were once again used to create a card.  Don’t forget, “By the Seashore” will be retiring at the end of the month & will no longer be available.

I carried the theme through to the inside of the card by stamping the coral image onto a piece of Whisper White Card in Crumb Cake Ink & then stamped a shell image in Calypso Coral.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
