There’s Nothing Little About the Light You Shine, Stampin’ Up’s Hide Tide stamp set

One of the very first cards I tried when I started with Stampin’ Up is the first card below I found on Pinterest by Tina Linck, there is something about lighthouses, I don’t know if I love them because my father loved them, I don’t know if it the image of a hope, or the lost coming home there is just a peace about them. Because I was new with Stampin’ Up I used a lot of my “old stash” in the beginning, please notice the rough texture of the gold embossing powder compared to the beautiful smooth finish I received with my Stampin’ Up products, just love the effort they make to create quality products for beautiful results. I’ve been experimenting with color and style, you can see what I came up with below, so much fun!!!

I began by stamping the red layer of the lighthouse using Real Red, then I stamped the black the Memento in and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Using Post It notes I mask the, lighthouse and the bottom third of the card  and sponged on a base with Daffodil Delight beginning with a very light touch until I received the color I wanted, then I mask the area for the light beam and created the sky with Berry Burst and Perfect Plumb. After removing the mask from the light beam I used Wink of Stella to make it sparkle.

After removing the post it note from the bottom and putting it on the top I began working on the water with Island Indigo, again with a light touch until I got the color I wanted. For this card I stamped and heat embossed the sand for texture but it made it hard to stamp the grass and I really like the look of the grass waving in the wind, on subsequent cards I left off the embossing. To finish the look I stamped the grass and pigeons.

I absolutely love the flock of birds in the sky and have used it on many of the cards I make, I stamped the sentiment with Black Memento in the image of the light and heat embossed it because I just love the look.

About the Author:

I am a proud mother of 4 and even prouder grandmother of 5. I started "stamping" over 25 years ago and stopped stamping about 10 years after that because I was so frustrated with my results. Enter Pinterest. Inspired by Pinterest and Youtube I got involved again and oh man am I obsessed! I fell in love with Stampin' Up products after seeing all the amazing cards on Pinterest. I chose Stampin' Up because I love how simple it is to make a gorgeous card with all their coordinating colors and products. Hope you enjoy my website.
