High Tide Close Up

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a card that I HAD to make!  I saw it on YouTube by Esther-Stampin Star Creations.  THIS card was so much fun to make and I LOVE Black and White cards!

The ONLY thing I changed up from Esthers’ card is I added the Baker’s Twine on the bottom.  I also think my white is smaller than the one she used, I didn’t notice it was smaller until after I cut it! So there it stayed.

Here are the specifics for this card:

Stamp sets

High Tide

Paper
Whisper White Thick 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″ (x2)
black 5 1/4″ x 4″ (x2)
Inks
Memento black
Basic Gray
Accessories
Layering Circles (2nd biggest)
Dimensionals
Black Bakers Twine
Sponges

When you look at this card, it looks like it would difficult. Or time consuming.  It’s neither!  Sponging is the main effect and that is easy to do!   I absolutely fell in love with this card and when that happens I HAVE  to make it right away!  I was done for the day, put on a video on YouTube and saw this one while I ate dinner. Normally I would plan on making it the next day, but this called to me and now that I have made it……..I LOVE it!  Thank you Esther!

If you are looking for a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I would love it if you could choose me!  I also have a YouTube Channel, and if you check me out and like the style of cards I make, we could make a great team!

Below are pictures of the supplies that I used, click on any of them and you will be taken to my OnLine Store!  If you purchase from me I will send you a small token of my appreciation!
