Stamping a watercolor scene on your cards is easy with the Oceanfront stamp set. Just 3 stamps and 3 ink pads and you will have a gorgeous scene. It took me a while to figure out how to stamp these 3 stamps together, but now it’s super easy.
Check out my video to see how easy and fun it is to build watercolor scenes. These cards are sure to delight your friends when they open up their mailbox and have happy mail.
The ideas are endless with these stamps. You can combine the Oceanfront stamp set with any other stamps to create many different watercolor scenes.
Beach Themed Cards – How to Build a Watercolor Scene
It just takes 3 main stamps and 3 colors to create the background. After that, let your imagination soar with what other stamps to add.
I hope that if you have this stamp set my tips help you and if you don’t have it–you now love and want it! I promise you will have fun creating with it.
Beach Themed Card Measurements & Supplies
All 4 cards use the same basic measurements:
- Card Base – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ (I used Crumb Cake and Basic White)
- Stamped layer – Basic White – 3″ x 4 1/4″
- Early Espresso – 3 1/8″ x 4 3/8″
Don’t forget to stamp the inside of your cards. On these, I used these layers:
- Basic White: 3 3/4″ x 5″
- Early Espresso: 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
