Stampin’ Up! High Tide for the Dream Theme International Blog Hop


We’re back with another Dream Theme Blog Hop!  This month we’re focusing on Father’s Day projects and I created a card with the Stampin’ Up! High Tide stamp set to share with you today.

My card design was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #221.

I started by adhering a panel from the Color Theory DSP Stack (available June 1) to a panel of Soft Suede card stock with SNAIL and then to a Dapper Denim card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I embossed a panel of Soft Suede card stock with the Seaside Embossing Folder and I adhered it to the card front with SNAIL.  I stamped the images from the High Tide stamp set in Dapper Denim, Soft Suede, Early Espresso and Marina Mist inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I sponged the upper part of the panel with Soft Sky ink and then adhered it to a panel of Dapper Denim card stock with SNAIL.  I adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

 I stamped the sentiments from the Thoughtful Banners photopolymer stamp set in Dapper Denim ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then stamped the border from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set around it in Soft Suede ink.  I punched the banner out with the Classic Label Punch and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.  I added a single silver enamel dot from the Metallic Enamel Shapes pack to finish the card front.

I stamped the images from the High Tide stamp set in Soft Suede, Early Espresso and Marina Mist inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.

  1. beautifully done Amy, I love the progression of colour in the background, the blues and browns are beautiful together

  2. Wowza my friend, such a fabulous masculine card. I love how you have used the new color theory DSP stack and embossing the soft suede panel finished the card off perfectly.

  3. Y.E.S.😉 So many new goodies to play with here!! Can’t wait to break open the new color theory DSP. You picked such rich masculine colors to bring your card to a “dreamy” ocean sketch! Thanks for the great idea, now just need to get moving!!! Why does this time of the year ALWAYS get me in a dither 😜
