By The Tide Birthday
Here is the second "By The Tide" card of the week. I love this stamp set so much and really hope it won't retire when the current Stampin' Up! catalogue finishes on the 30th June 2014.
I created an oval template using one of the dies from the "Ovals Collection" sets of dies. I then sponged this area with a dish-washing sponge (nothing fancy!) and some Pool Party ink.
I then stamped my images over the top, again with Pool Party ink.
I used the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set to stamp "Happy Birthday" which I cut out with some scissors (I was too lazy to use the matching dies), which I then elevated this using some "Stampin' Dimensionals" - sticky foam pads.
Whisper White cardstock is the perfect colour to contrast with the crisp Pool Party colour. You could use a darker shade for a masculine card, or what about Calypso Coral?
All of these items (except the dish-washing sponges!) can be found in the Official Stampin' Up! webshop - just click on the "Shop Now" button at the top of the page to buy or browse.
Back tomorrow with more ideas.
