Stampin’ Up! Lighthouse Point for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Did you ever have one of those days where you can’t get out of your own way? That was my day yesterday. Because of that, I had a very productive day. I had a hair appointment in the morning. I followed that by going grocery shopping (which I hate to do anymore). When I got home, I had no crafting mojo, so I went outside to weed 1 of my flower gardens. That led to weeding 3 of them, cutting some tree branches and cleaning up around my yard. Before I knew it my son was leaving for work, which was 3pm. I finished up outside and went in to do laundry. I finally was able to sit down to work on my blog when I got a text that my daughter was on the train on her way home from school. I picked her up and then it was off to Costco. Needless to say, I never got to my craft table, but I got a lot done and by the end of the day I was content that I did something on my day off.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Red, White & Blue. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Lighthouse Point Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Ocean Front Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon Cling Stamp Set and the Stamin’ Up! Gentle Waves Cling Stamp Set for my Clean Graphic Card. I was inspired by the colors from the inspiration photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #176.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by using my Water Painter with Tahitian Tide Ink and coloring the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the bottom of the panel using the Gentle Waves stamp with Starry Sky Ink. I stamped a strip of Sahara Sand cardstock using the sand image from the Ocean Front stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I tore the panel to give it the sand image. I adhered the strip of Sahara Sand cardstock to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I cut the panel using my Deckled Rectangle Die. I adhered the panel to a Starry Sky card base. I stamped the bird image from the On The Horizon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel.

Using my Lighthouse Dies, I cut the solid lighthouse from a panel of Sweet Sorbet cardstock. I cut the detailed lighthouse from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the lighthouse top from a panel of Basic Black cardstock and the rail from a scrap of Silver Foil Paper. I cut the top of the solid Sweet Sorbet lighthouse with my Paper Snips. I adhered the lighthouse top to the solid panel. I adhered the detailed lighthouse over the Sweet Sorbet lighthouse using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Silver Foil rail to the top of the detailed panel. I adhered the lighthouse to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Lighthouse Point Photopolymer Stamp Set in Starry Sky Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Lighthouse Dies. I tied a Carrick Bend Knot using my Crumb Cake Bakers Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack. I adhered the knot to the sentiment and adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pebbles Enamel Shapes around the lighthouse and Faux Sea Glass Shapes along the sand.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Lighthouse Point stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Lighthouse Point stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the detailed lighthouse image over the solid image in Sweet Sorbet Ink. I stamped the splotch image from the Lighthouse Point stamp set in Tahitian Tide Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, over the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat and then to the inside of the Starry Sky card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Lighthouse Point stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the 2022-2024 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.
