High Tide by the Bay

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Oh yes, I took a sick day yesterday … had this bug hanging on for about a month and Thursday after work, it took me down!!  I hope you are feeling well and that bug by passed you.  Hard to believe it can hang on in these frigid temps … we got a whoppin’ -14°  Brrrrrrr!!

Let’s get to our card share today.  My last two posts I shared the new Sale-a-bration stamp set; By the Bay and Thursday I shared my lighthouse card from High Tide … Today I’m going to combine the two.

Being a demonstrator surely has it’s benefits, and one of my favorites is we not only get to see the catalogs first, we can order from them too! And the cherry on top before Sale-a-bration is that we as demonstrators can earn the Sale-a-bration items during our pre-order!!  So the minute I saw the “By The Bay” stamp set … I knew I had to have it.

I’ve always pictured that house, with a lighthouse sitting next to it …

I stamped my lighthouse first onto a scrap piece of computer paper, then stamped it onto my cardstock.  I cut out the lighthouse on the computer paper so I could use it to mask (cover) the one on my cardstock.  Once I had the lighthouse covered with the mask, I stamped the house by the water image.  I may play with the placement some more, this is my first try … but I did like the way it looked.

I used the Smoky Slate, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends to color my images.  I love the way these layer and blend so nicely… You’d be surprised that the house was done in Crumb Cake (Light & Dark) and Smoky Slate.  I just keep playing until I like the way it looks!! lol

Thank you so much for stopping back in to visit today.  I just have to say, I’m so intrigued by lighthouses and the families that maintained them and guided others safely to shore.  You are sure to see more variations of this … both stamp sets are so cool!!

Oh yes … the greeting comes from the By The Bay stamp set and are punched out with the Tailored Tag punch.

I hope you have a great Saturday & stay warm if your in this artic freeze,

TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST …
