Summer is here and the kids are on vacation! Which means my vacation starts in September! 😆
Are you planning a vacation to the ocean this summer? If you are, then I have the perfect stamp and die bundle for your scrapbooking and card making… the Lighthouse Point Bundle.
I have lots of lighthouse photos from Peggy’s Cove in Nova Scotia that I could have used to scrapbook a page, but I decided to go in a different direction and make bold, colourful cards with the bundle.
When I was thinking about using lots of colours, the Hues of Happiness DSP was the ideal paper to use. I loved the brush strokes on canvas look and that it had a rainbow of colours. I used one of the tower base die shapes to create the background for this first card. I also die cut a lighthouse from the Rose Gold Specialty Paper… and it gives off a gorgeous shine!
The second card was a pretty shaker card that used the same DSP from the first. The background of the shaker (seen through the windows) was stamped in Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, and Daffodil Delight with the large splatter stamp from the Lighthouse Point Stamp Set. And for the sparkly shaker part of the card, I used the new For Everything Fancy Sequins in pink. They were the perfect addition to the card!
When I am crafting, I am always thinking ahead and strategically cutting my paper so I don’t waste any of it. For these cards, I was able to use both the die cut and the left over paper on my projects.
I can’t wait to see what the rest of the team does with the Lighthouse Point Bundle. Be sure to visit the Stampin’ Up! Facebook Page and see what the other Artisan designers have created!

Love your cards Leah, just wondering where the rectangle die, pictured above, came from? Loralee Parish
Hi Loralee! Thank you so much for checking out the blog post! The rectangle die that I used is in the Lighthouse Dies. It is part of the tower, I just turned it on it’s side.
