Shimmer nighttime card with Waterfront stamp set

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a beautiful friendship card featuring the Waterfront stamp set! Shimmer White Emboss Powder is one of the new embossing powders added to the annual catalog this year and I wanted to try it out to see how it would look creating a night sky! The best way to describe the powder is that it has a “hint of glitter”, but also gives your embossed image a bit of texture. This is sure to come in handy for Christmas cards and I can’t wait to use the Shimmer Black Emboss Powder for Halloween cards!

The base layer for this card is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. I used my Stamparatus to stamp the mountains three times each in Night of Navy ink. I positioned the mountains just slightly lower than half way down the cardstock:

First start with a sponge brayer and Balmy Blue ink right across the mountains:

Use a second sponge brayer with Pacific Point ink above and below the mountains:

Use a third sponge brayer with Blueberry Bushel ink to cover the top and bottom of the cardstock:

I then used a sponge dauber with Night of Navy ink around the edges and a sponge dauber with Pacific Point ink to blend in the already inked area:

I first used the splatter or dotted stamp to stamp stars along the top in and the sun/moon in Craft White ink. I then heat embossed Shimmer White Embossing Powder:

You will also need a 4” piece of White Flax Ribbon, stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink, cut out with the smallest Stitched Shapes Die, and then use the third smallest Layering Squares Die to cut out a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock to layer under the sentiment:

The base layer is adhered to a Sahara Sand cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½”, the flax ribbon is adhered with Tear & Tape, and then the layered sentiment is adhered over the ribbon with mini dimensionals in each corner:

The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy ink, use a sponge dauber with So Saffron ink, stamp the ground in Sahara Sand ink, the palm trees in Crumb Cake and Old Olive inks, and the house in Night of Navy ink:

Isn’t this an awesome card to send to a friend to let them know you are thinking of them? The Waterfront stamp set has been one of my favorites, there are so many possible sceneries that you can create with it!
