Stampin’ Up Oceanfront Sunset

Stampin’ Up Oceanfront Sunset

Hello Everyone – I have another idea with today’s card – Stampin’ Up Oceanfront Sunset – to show how versatile this stamp set is.

I have seen a number of beautiful sunsets while at the beach. Today’s card reminds me of many of those colorful sunsets.

Have you ever seen a sunset at the beach?  It is beautiful!  I used that idea for this Stampin' Up Oceanfront Sunset card.  Are you ready to go to the beach?

This month Vicky and I are going to focus on the Oceanfront stamp set for our blog hop.

This stamp set will carry over to the new 2022 – 2023 Annual catalog. If you love beach cards you need to get this set.

Check out how I used the stamps to create a mini version of the shoreline for the inside of the card and envelope.

I used a mini version of the sunset from the card front to decorate the inside of the card and envelope.  Don't miss all the details for the Stampin' Up Oceanfront Sunset card.

I have used a number of product to create sunsets. This card uses the Rainbow Glimmer paper to mimic a sunset. Did you see this card I posted a few days ago with another idea for a shoreline?

  • stamp the water image using Pool Party overlapping the sky slightly so there is not gap between the sky and water
  • use the large rock image stamp it in the lower left hand corner of the White panel using Basic Gray
  • create a mask for the rock by stamping it on the upper edge of a post-it note and cut it out just inside the stamped edge
  • apply the mask to the rock on the White panel
  • use a second generation stamping of the sand using Soft Suede to create the shoreline making sure to overlap the water edge to avoid gaps

  • take another post-it note and punch a 1″ circle out of the center
  • place the sticky edge of a post-it note on the edge of the water to mask off the water
  • using the post-it note with the hole punched in it, add it to the panel to mimic the sun setting at the edge of the water – see photo above
