Stampin’ Up! Waterfront Thank You Card

Hello Creative Friends!

I am still busy working on cards to share with you that show off some of the great new products in the holiday catalog. In the meantime I figured I would show you a card that showcases one of the awesome sets from the annual catalog. This card was made using the Waterfront stamp set and there is actually a fabulous stamp set in the holiday catalog that would coordinate with it beautifully!

We made this card in my card class recently. One of the best things I found as everyone made this card is there is no right or wrong way!  This stamp set is very forgiving and lets you really become an artist!

To make this card I used Daffodil Delight for the Sun, Pool Party stamped off once for the clouds,  Smoky Slate to stamp the mountains, Crumb Cake to stamp the sand area, a combination of Balmy Blue and Pool Party for the water, a combination of Garden Green and Old Olive for the grassy area and Garden Green for the trees. I wanted less white space in the water area so I used a sponge dauber to add in some Pool Party ink. The Sentiment was stamped in Balmy Blue.  I wanted to keep this card simple so I used simple layers of Smoky Slate and Balmy Blue cardstock. I did also add a little Wink of Stella in the water to make it appear more like waves.

If you like this stamp set then you will also love the new Holiday Catalog stamp set called Snowfront. Here is what it looks like:

Can you see how well these two stamp sets could coordinate?  I sure can!

I hope to have some creations to share with you that showcase the products from the holiday catalog soon!
