Stampin’ Up! High Tide for the Inkin’ Krew Card Swap

Last week, I’d shown off some of the pretty cards that I got at our team meeting from the swap that we did (you can see them here) and I mentioned that I’d be sharing my swap card a little later.  I used the Stampin’ Up! High Tide stamp set to create my card for the team swap.

I started by stamping the image from the Hardwood stamp in Crumb Cake ink on a panel of Sahara Sand card stock.  I adhered the stamped panel to a Cherry Cobbler card base with SNAIL.

I stamped the images from the High Tide photopolymer stamp set in Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist, Always Artichoke and Daffodil Delight inks on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  I stamped the sentiment from the High Tide stamp set in Soft Suede ink next to the lighthouse and then inked the bird images in Soft Suede ink, stamped them on scrap paper and then stamped them over the lighthouse.

I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Soft Suede card stock with SNAIL and then I wrapped a strand of Linen Thread around the panel twice and tied a bow.  I adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added a single Rhinestone Basic Jewel next to the sentiment to finish it.

I hope that you enjoyed checking out my swap!  If you haven’t seen them already, be sure to stop by this blog post to check out the other swap cards from my team members.  They made some beautiful projects!

You can see a complete list of supplies for creating this card, including card stock cuts at the very bottom of this post.

  1. This card is gorgeous! This is one of my favorite stamp sets and can not wait till I am able to buy it. I love the colors you used like the red, blue waters, and the defined green grass.

  2. Beautiful! I’m intimidated by that stamp set because it just demands a scene and yours is gorgeous! You show how it is done! And made it sound simpler than I think it would be!
