Don’t know what it is, but whenever I use this stamp set, I have to look up the name!! There is just something about the By The Tide name that I cannot remember it… LOL, I think it’s the images themselves… the sea creatures, shell, script and Nantucket logo, most of which would be found in a tide pool or the water… not BY the tide! Is is just me? Some stamp sets have names that fit the images well enough that I can easily recall their names. Others… well, just like By The Tide, aren’t too memorable.
One sale-a-bration freebie set was also used on today’s card share… “Vintage Verses” for the “Thanks” image. This was a quick and easy card to make… consisting of three pieces of card stock and a ribbon knot tied on my fingers! The card stock and measurements are as follows:
- Pool Party (card base) 8.5” x 5.5” scored at 4.25”
- Calypso Coral (layer) 3-7/8” x 5-1/8”
- Whisper White (front) 3.75” x 5”
Three ink pads were used along with a piece of stampin’ sponge wedge, big shot die-cutting machine and a textured impressions embossing folder:
- Bashful Blue Ink (stamp the script image
- Island Indigo Ink (stamp the shell and “Thanks”)
- Calypso Coral Ink (suitably enough, the coral!!)
- Houndstooth Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
It’s really important to stamp the images before embossing with the big shot die-cutting machine… your images won’t be too clear otherwise! So… once they are stamped, go ahead and run the whisper white card stock layer through the big shot machine!
Then… we used a piece of stampin’ sponge wedge to lightly thump along the outer edges and along the surface of the card (lightly) using the island indigo ink.
Attaching the knotted ribbon is easy when you use mini glue dots… one at each end of the ribbon and one behind the knot. Position and affix the knot first onto the card stock and then wrap around the sandwiched card stock layers!
Well.. got to run. I look forward to reading your comments and hope you’ll stop back by tomorrow!
