Waterfront, Guy Greetings, Father's Day Card, 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog

I keep gravitating back to this "Waterfront" stamp set that is in the new 2018 Occasions catalog. I remember last year there was a really fun set that was in the Occasions catalog and because it was SO popular I thought it would end up in the yearly catalog, but no it was not in there. So I have that same feeling about this set. I am going to be making several more cards using this fun set.  I think it's my favorite.  Though I say that about a lot of the sets I use!!! LOL  I am going to play with the Sale-a-Brations sets a bit more because those do retire at the end of March and will never be in the catalog.

So for my card today, I found it on Pinterest.  I changed it slightly. I added words at the bottom and I didn't have the stitched ovals as large as the ones that were used there. Both ovals were stitched ovals.  The one I used was the largest stitched oval and it still wasn't as large as in the original card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper Whit card stock.  I scored it from the fold at 1/2" intervals for a total of 4 scores.  But only 3 show so if I ever do it again I will only make 2 scores.

I cut a 1-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Marina Mist card stock and stamped Marina Mist ink on it using the trees image.  I taped that to the front of the card.

Next I took a piece of Whisper White card stock and stamped the mountain using Smoky Slate. Under the mountain I stamped the long strip stamp using Pear Pizzazz.  Then I added the water image using Soft Sky.  The trees were added, but I did tape off the trunks.  I also used the Early Espresso marker after I stamped the trees in Garden Green ink.  Then I stamped the sun using So Saffron ink.

The words are from the "Guy Greetings" set and I used Night of Navy to stamp them. 

I used the largest stitched oval die and cut out the images.  Then I used the largest regular oval die and cut one using Soft Sky card stock. I taped those two layers together as you see in the photo.  Then I set those ovals in place using Dimensionals.  I did stamp the words after I added the ovals.  Something I don't usually do but the words were an afterthought.  I do like how the card turned out.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
