I love stamps, dies or Designer Series Paper that can make outdoor scenes. Stampin’ Up!® actually has a lot of these products in the new 2022 January – June Mini Catalog. There is Oceanfront and On The Horizon stamp sets and coordinating die set called Horizon. There is also New Horizon Designer Series Paper.
This time I decided to use stamps to make a scenery card. In this case I made the background using the stamp set called Oceanfront. This set has all the elements to make a beautiful background. To make this card the first thing I did was stamp the sand in Sahara Sand ink. Then I flipped the stamp set the other way and stamped the water using Coastal Cabana ink. The sky is Pacific Point and uses a different stamp in this set.
The next thing I did was stamp the dune grass in Crumb Cake ink. I stamped the birds and the sentiment from the stamp set called On The Horizon in Night Of Navy ink. At the last minute I decided to die cut the fence from the die set called Horizon using Sahara Sand card stock. I cut some small pieces from a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheets and added it to the back, middle pieces of the fence so it would like like it was rounded. Then I used Multipurpose Glue to adhere the ends of the fence. I like the fence but it blocks the dune grass and in retrospect I should have stamped the grass on the fence too.
One of my favorite new suites in the Stampin’ Up!® 2022 January – June Mini Catalog is called New Horizons. It includes the stamp set called On The Horizon, Horizon Dies, 2 1/8″ Cotton Ribbon Combo Pack (in Misty Moonlight and Petal Pink), Pebbles Enamel Shapes and this AMAZING Designer Series Paper called New Horizons. This DSP is just gorgeous! There is also another stamp set called Ocean Front that can be used with suite.
This card was as simple as it could be to make, yet it is beautiful. Literally all I did was adhered a piece of the New Horizons Designer Series Paper to a Basic White card base. Then I stamped the sentiment from the On The Horizon stamp set and the birds in Misty Moonlight ink. That is it. It can’t get much simpler but it is a beautiful card will awe anyone who receives it.
Take a look at this suite. It is on page 42-43 of the new Mini Catalog.
