I want to start by saying Happy New Years!! and also welcome you to our first blog hop for 2017. I can’t believe it is 2017 already lol, where did that last year go. Today the design team are going to share a variety of fabulous ideas for making an Easy Panel Card. So sit back, relax and enjoy hopping around the world.
The card I am sharing with you today is using one of my favourite stamp sets (High Tide) from the newly released catalogues. Did you notice I said one of my favourites lol, that’s because there are so many fabulous new products and stamps sets in the catalogues that I find it impossible to just love one lol. Anway here is the card I have come up with for today’s share.
This is a super quick and easy card to make, all I did was cut one of the gorgeous background scenes from the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack into strips. Stamp a few images directly onto the paper using Black Archival Ink and adhered to black card mat. I added some sparkle to the water by highlighting some areas using the Clear WInk of Stella Brush. Not sure if you can see the sparkle but I assure you it is there lol.
There are loads of different backgrounds to choose from in this pack, you can use them as a background on your card or stamp on them like I have.
