Flashback Friday: Wetlands

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share a card with you that I made at a demonstrator meeting years ago … just goes to show how some stamp sets are timeless.  We used the “Wetlands” stamp set that is still available and can be found on page 133 of our annual catalog.

We made this card in 2013 using the acrylic block to create the background effect. The wet sand was created with the brayer.  This has always been one of my favorite stamp sets … the stamps in the set coordinate beautifully together or work wonders on their own – just like you see here.

I have a second card to share, also from 2013 and comes from a card swap at one of my demonstrator meetings. Again, this shows how versatile this stamp set is, and is truly timeless.

I like how Eileen created a background on the blue just by stamping it … you can use the same ink color as the cardstock to stamp (as you saw on my card yesterday) or  you can stamp with VersaMark™ to create a more subtle tone.

Hope you enjoyed this blast from the past, and found as I have, that some card designs and stamp sets never go out of style.

Thanks for taking this trip down memory lane with me.

Enjoy the day ~

  1. I enjoy using this set for various occasions. The cards are really nice. Is there a video or instructions on how to get the sand to appear wet? Thank for sharing your blast from the past.
