More High Tide Cards

If you saw my post yesterday, then you saw one of the cards we made in June  for card class.  I was on a roll with this type of card, and had fun making Father's Day cards too. I know, I know, it's way past Father's Day!  But time got away from me, and I love these cards so much I just had to share any way.  

We have red adirondack chairs on our deck, with a nice view of the valley. That is what  inspired this card.  Just imagine sitting on the deck looking out at the valley.  So relaxing. This was a card for my husband, so even on a cold day you can look at this card and enjoy the view. 

These are the cards I made for our dads.  
And I love the light from the lighthouse on the inside too.

The original idea for these card came from an idea I saw on Pinterest from Lynn Starzl.  I loved what she did with the High Tide stamp set and Colorful Seasons Bundle.  

Here's my version of Lynn's card.  I love how she combined the High Tide stamp set with the Colorful Seasons Bundle.  The stamp set gives you all the seasons, plus that adirondack chair die is my favorite!! 

Colorful Seasons Bundle:  Colorful Seasons photopolymer stamp set and Seasonal Layers Framelits Thinlits Dies  145348  $54.00 - save 10% when you buy the bundle!

TIPS AND TRICKS:  Use a Post-It note for your horizon line where the ocean and sky meet.  I used a 1" circle punch on a Post-It for the sun, first using the circle as a mask to sponge the sky, then I used the hole I had punched out of the Post-It as a reverse mask to sponge in the yellow.  

TIPS AND TRICKS:  More sponging!  I love the look you can get from sponging ink on card stock.  When you are sponging onto the Whisper White and Very Vanilla card stock you can blend in the ink colors by going in soft, small circles with your sponge. Not too hard, just hard enough to blend the inks so you loose the texture from the sponge.  It can blend the colors to give it a smooth and soft look.
