Colour Creations Showcase – Calypso Coral

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Calypso Coral!

I love the Whale of a Time Bundle and on this card, I have teamed it up with the High Tide & Well Said stamp sets and the Well Written Dies!

I used the Rock n Roll technique to stamp the whale on whisper white card before cutting it out with the Whale builder punch. The other image were stamped on the Nested Stitched Label die cut and the whale added with dimensionals!

To create the background, I used the “light beam” stamp from the High Tide stamp set and repeatedly stamped in different colours, cleaning the stamp quickly on the Simply Shammy between colours.

Looking forward to warmer weather with High Tide

Today’s card has a summery feel to it and yes, I am still waiting for some warmer days to appear in cold Melbourne town! It is Spring and daylight savings is about to start tomorrow night, so hopefully that will mean some better days ahead.

I have recently purchased this High Tide stamp set and wanted to get it out and have a play.

I have used quite a few different ink pads, although it doesn’t really look overly colourful, but I do love the Pineapple Punch card base with Very Vanilla layer to really bring it to life!

Once I had finished stamping, I felt it still needed something… maybe because it was a single layer card, meaning there was no dimension to it. So pulled out my Wink of Stella and turned to moon into a shiny moon with refection on the water and the tops of the wings of the birds flying high in the sky have a silvery tone to them.

I also felt it still needed something else, so instead of cutting it down and adding a mat layer, I decided to sponge the edges with Versamark ink, add some Gold Emboss Powder and heat set it. This is a great way to add that layered look and some extra shine!

Here is the inside without a sentiment at the moment. I’m not sure what it will end up being, whether it’s for a birthday, sympathy, thinking of you, or could even be a happy holidays card!

The water is stamped in Pool Party and Soft Sea Foam. The lighthouse is Gray Granite and Blueberry Bushel. The beach is Sahara Sand. The plants are Mossy Meadow. The birds are Memento Black. The moon and reflection are Smoky Slate.
