“You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water” —Rabindranath Tagore. The first time, I saw Sale-A-Bration level one stamp set “By The Bay” I was reminded of that quote from poet Rabindranath Tagore, it hung in one of my classes at high school, I can’t remember the teacher or even the subject I was in that classroom for but the words have stayed with me. Today I am sharing a card I have created for a friend who is having a hard time at the moment, the greeting even in the set “May all your paths lead to happiness” sometimes we just don’t know what the future lays before us but we must keep moving forward.
I was given a helping hand with the design of the card by using the sketch below as part of this rounds INKspired blog hop, it is only a little hop this round with 4 members of my Stampin’ Up! Team.
For the first time in YEARS! Well 6 years, as a matter of fact, I have made a video of the process making this card.
Who knew there was a background stamp set called Post Script in the catalogue? Well, I didn’t realise until I was looking over mum’s craft desk (thanks Stamping Barb) seeing that I was the first to use the stamp, I should be the owner of the stamp now. Do you agree?
For the background, I started with the Pear Pizzazz cardstock and wiped Whisper White Craft ink over the top, followed by Embossing Buddy. Using the Post Script background I clear embossed sections of the background stamp.
I have kept inside very plan, I have a lot to write to my dear friend. I have simply gold embossed the seagulls and watercoloured the sky and sand.
Now it is time to hop over to my crafty friend Kozue
