I designed this card for my last card class. I used the Waves of Inspiration Stamps and dies and love how this card turned out. I started with Basic White Cardstock and stamped the waves using Tahitian Tide and Starry Sky ink for the waves. I cut a piece of Balmy Blue for the sentiment and stamped it using Starry Sky ink. I used my Blending Brush to color the background with Balmy Blue. The Basic White would be too stark without the Balmy Blue which sort of created a sky.  I added clouds that I cut out using Basic White cardstock. I also stamped birds using Starry Sky ink. I used Linen Thread for the label adding glue dots to the back to adhere it in place. I glued the Basic White piece to a piece of Starry Sky then onto the Thick Basic White card base. It turned out great. The Stamparatus made it so easy to stamp the waves and get them perfectly lined up.
