When I first looked through the new 2017 Occasions catalog, I knew that “High Tide” would be one of the first stamp sets I’d order. It’s so pretty, and so versatile! It has a lighthouse, sandy beach, water, seagulls, and more! You can use this nautical themed stamp set for men, women, children, coworkers – really anyone for any occasion!
For this birthday card, featuring a red lighthouse against the pretty blue water, I went with the bold colors of Cherry Cobbler and Dapper Denim, then softened the look with a bit of Tip Top Taupe, Pear Pizzazz, and Always Artichoke. The patterned paper in the background is By The Shore Designer Series Paper, and it was just the perfect touch!
The “High Tide” stamp set is a Two Step Stamping set – meaning, you stamp the first image in one color, then a second image, right over the first, in a different color. You can see the effect on the lighthouse – I stamped the base image with Cherry Cobbler, then the second image with Tip Top Taupe. This creates a lot of depth in your images. Plus, this set is photopolymer (totally clear), making it super easy to line up the stamped images!
