Some Lighthouse Cards

Happy Father's Day!
I find that when I stamp, I use one stamp set to make a card
and once I'm done, I leave it out, thinking I might use it again,
but chances are, I pull out another set to make my next card.
So, I've decided to be a little more intentional and make better use of my time,
by challenging myself to make several cards with a set before I put it away.
Today, I'm sharing some cards that I made recently using PTI's Guiding Lights stamp set.

I used some Basic Grey patterned paper as a border along the side.
I added twine and stamped my sentiment from PTI's Light of Life.

I adhered my lighthouse with some dimensional adhesive.
This next card is the same, but reversed.

I used the same elements to make my next card:

I watercoloured with ink and water to make the little hill the lighthouse
is sitting on.

And on my last card, I decided to change up the perspective a little.

Here, I diecut the hill using a Pretty Pink Posh stitched border die.
The sentiment was heat embossed, using PTI's KIS: Father's Day stamp set.

Thanks for looking!
