DSC#282: High Tide Tri-Fold Card

High Tide stamp set is the perfect answer whenever you hear the beach calling your name.

Or to use for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a “Home Sweet Home” Challenge.

This week I was inspired by the neutral colors and the nautical theme.

I love that this card is versatile and can fit any occasion depending on the type of Designer Series Paper you choose.

This year I am embarking on a mission to not only purchase Designer Series Paper but to actually USE it.

I made a promise to myself that I was no longer going to hoard my Designer Series Paper!

Sunshine Wishes Congrats Card

These thinlit dies, Sunshine Wishes, have been around for a couple years and I just LOVE them! I love the font of the script as well as the other shapes (heart, flower and butterfly) included in the set. This on definitely one of my “go-to” items in my stash of crafting tools.

The DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge this week it is a “Sketch Pad” Challenge, I like these challenges because the design is done for me…all I have to do is add my favorites and I have a great card in a short time. If you are like me, the design phase takes the most time.

I love the simplicity and timelessness of this sketch, it could be used for every occasion. Seems to me that the options are endless. Want to see what I came up with?

Stampin' Up! Sunshine Wishes Congrats card created for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge featuring Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and Designer Series Paper. For details and instructions, click through to my blog #CrackedPotStamper #stampinup #CongratsCard #SunshineWishes

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down for complete supply list and links)

  • Paper:
    • Garden Green: 4-1/4″ x 11″ card base, 1/2″ x 4-1/8″, scrap for “congrats”
    • Powder Pink: 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
    • Wood Textures Designer Series Paper: 2″ x 4″
    • 2017-2019 In Color Designer Series Paper: 3-1/4″ x 4″
    • Vellum: 1″ x 5-1/2″
    • Gold Glimmer Paper: scrap for heart
  • Accessories: Linen Thread, Metallic Pearls
  • Tools: Big Shot, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies
  • Adhesive: SNAIL, Glue Dots
It’s All in the Details:

I love how all the elements came together but my favorite part how the “congrats” is tucked under the Linen Thread in a few places. I did this for a couple reasons…1) it helped hold it in place without using a lot of adhesive and 2) it adds interest being woven into the thread.

With the 4th of July comes plenty of opportunities to celebrate! We have so much to be thankful for and celebrate this great country of ours!

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a “Home Sweet Home” Challenge.
