The wind is whipping around as I’ve never seen before. What started as quite a mild winter now has me saying “Uncle.” 🙂 While it’s not possible to change the view through the snowy windows, I can enjoy the warmth inside and stamp a balmy scene with the Stampin’ Up! By the Bay Stamp Set for a handmade summer card idea.
There are two ways to look at a stamp with a lot of detail like the seaside stamp from By the Bay. The first is it’s a dream for those who enjoy coloring. The second way is it looks fantastic stamped only with dark ink. The detail of the stamp provides a lot of color with no coloring required.
This is a mostly handmade monochromatic card with Night of Navy for the cardstock card base, Classic Stampin’ Pad ink, dominant color in the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper and Medium Baker’s Twine.
The layer of Pool Party Cardstock coordinates with the bit of Pool Party in the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper. The small touch of the Pool Party with all the Night of Navy is when the card finally looked complete.
Whether you’d like to color the detailed oceanside image or stamp it in one color, the only way to get the Stampin’ Up! By the Bay Stamp Set is for FREE with a qualifying order.
