Birthday on the Waterfront

I needed another birthday card for a very special person, my dad!  And I knew I wanted to use the new Waterfront stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  This just might be my favorite set in the 2018 Occasions Catalog.

I CASEd my card from Patty Bennett at Patty’s Stamping Spot. You can see her cards here.  It took a while practicing with the colors and stamping off multiple times to get the look I wanted. The stamps play so well with each other.  I just LOVE those trees!

I am really happy with how it turned out.  It looks so much like I watercolored it, but it’s all just stamping. The sentiments on my card are from different stamp sets – the HAPPY BIRTHDAY is from Lemon Zest and the inside sentiment is from the new Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set.

Here is a close up of the card front…

and the inside of the card…

and I had to add a little something extra to the envelope:

The From the Heart sentiment is from the new Petal Palette stamp set and the little heart is from the new Heart Happiness stamp set.  I love it when I can mix and match stamp sets to get the look I want!

Here are some of my “practice” cards. I’ll save them and maybe use them for future projects.

Thanks for stopping by!
