Stamp Review Crew – By The Tide


Welcome to another edition of the Stamp Review Crew blog hop. On the first and third Monday of each month, we highlight a stamp set and give you all kinds of creative ways to use it. This week we are featuring the By the Tide set. If you’re hopping in order, you just arrived from Debra Currier’s site. But you can jump in at any point. Just click on the banner above to see the complete list.

For my first card, I played with my Blendabilities again. If you haven’t seen these, they are the new alcohol markers from Stampin’ Up! You an read more about them in this post. The lobster is colored with the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities set.

The next card uses a technique that’s so old, it’s new to me – it’s the shaving cream technique for making background papers. I may have done something similar to this in Girl Scouts. I thought that blues and greens would make a watery background for my card. The layout is card sketch #33 from the Clean and Simple Card Sketch blog.  I like how it turned out.

    OK, I really have to get some Blendabilities, and soon! That lobster looks wonderful! I really love the way the shaving cream technique created the felling of light shining down into the depths of the water.

    What a great duo! Your coloring is fantastic. I love the background on the second one. I’ve seen it but not tried it but I think you’ve inspired me. 🙂

    I was hoping someone would be coloring with Blendabilities! Very nice and love the focus on the lobster. The background technique of shaving cream is perfect and adds lots of interest to your second project.
