Waterfront Scene Card for Her (Part 2)
Did you see part 1 of my post yesterday? If not, go back and check out the first part, the HIM part of this card, then come back and I’ll fill you in on how we made the HER card!
Waterfront Photopolymer Stamp Set (#146386)
Create tranquil sceneries, whether it’s lakes lined with trees, tropical islands, or snow-covered forests. This 16 piece stamp set is ideal for trying out new coloring techniques.
* Are totally transparent for perfect image placement.
* Have just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time.
* Cling like crazy to our clear blocks so you don’t have to worry about slipping.
* Save space—you need only one set of blocks for all your photopolymer stamps (blocks sold separately).
* Come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.
I use the photopolymer stamps with our Stampin’ Pierce Mat to get an even pressure and ink coverage with detailed or background stamps, every time.
The Color Palette For HER Card
Again, aren’t these colors not stunning together?
I love the softer tones in this palette. It works so well and I am digging the balmy blue of the water in this landscape.
Although the loandscape might be intimidating to create, I assure you it isn’t. Just like in class, I gave visuals to show us how easy it is to create it over and over. We made three cards in this layout, and we did it in assembly fashion. (Photo is the example for both cards layout ~ see below for the change in colors)
- The water in Balmy Blue
- The land in crumb cake
- The mountains in Pear Pizzazz
- The trees in granny apple green and then the sun last in daffodil delight.
See, not hard at all. Just take it one stamp at a time and you can create it wiht ease.
My Card Layout
I started my card layout with creating the scene on a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 3.5″ x 4.75″.
I attached that to a piece of roccoco rose measuring 3.75″ x just over 4.75″ but not quite 5″. Then that mat set gets adhered to a piece of crumb cake cardstock measuring 5.25″ x 4″.
I stop right there and created the base next.
For my card base, I took a piece of rocco rose cut in the hotdog style, measuring 4.25″ x 11″ and scored down the middle at 5.5″. Before I did anything else, I cut off the cardstock on the front at the 3″ mark.
I wrapped a linen thread three times around and adhered it on the back side of the card sandwich and then attached the crumb cake to the left side of the front of the card, careful not to let adhesive spill over on the back side.
For the inside, I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock, measuring 4″ x 5.25″ and adhered it flat and blank for writing.
What gorgeous cards!
