This A2 size card features the By the Bay Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!  It was inspired from a card I saw online by Amy Koenders.

I stamped the large scenic stamp from the By the Bay Stamp Set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a top mat of Whisper White CS (5" x 3-3/4").

Then I used a one of the Rectangle Stitched Framelits to cut out the center of the piece to color.

I began by using a mask to cover the stamped image and then used a Sponge Dauber to color the sky using Balmy Blue ink.

The rest of the scene was colored with Old Olive, Mango Melody, Night of Navy, and Crumb Cake Stampin' Blend Sets.

I attached the Whisper White CS frame to a bottom mat of Pear Pizzazz CS (5-1/4" x 4") using Tape Runner and the popped up the colored piece into the center using Dimensionals.

The pieces were then mounted onto a White Card Base using Tape Runner.

I stamped the large scenic stamp from the By the Bay Stamp Set onto a top mat (5" x 3-3/4") of Whisper White CS.

I used various texture type stamps from Beautiful Blizzard, Eclectic Expressions, and Artisan Textures to color the scene using Soft Sky and Whisper White inks on the sky, Balmy Blue ink for the water, Pear Pizzazz for the grass/bushes, and Crumb Cake for the paths and rock walls.

I used Sponge Daubers to fill in any edges and empty spots using the same colors of ink.

And then used Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake and Old Olive Stampin' Blend Sets to color the house and add some highlights and definition where needed.

The door was colored with the Real Red Stampin' Write marker.

Then I trimmed the piece using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits, mounted the piece onto a bottom mat of Crumb Cake CS (5-14" x 4") and then mounted them both onto a White Card Base.

The sentiment is from the Birthday Banners Stamp Set and was stamped in Old Olive Ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White CS and cut with a die from the Bunch of Banners Framelits and popped up with Dimensionals.

I stamped the large scene stamp from the By the Bay Stamp Set on a piece of Whisper White CS using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and this time I used colored pencils to fill in the scene.

I used one of the larger dies from the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut an oval in the center of a piece of So Saffron CS (5-1/4" x 4") and then stamped the Seagulls from the High Tide Stamp Set at the top of the card and the water birds from the By the Bay Stamp Set at the bottom of the oval - using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I glued the colored piece to the back of the So Saffron piece using Tombow Glue and then attached both to a White Card Base using Tape Runner.

I stamped the large scenic stamp from the By the Bay Stamp Set onto a scrap piece of Whisper White CS and colored it using various colors Stampin' Blends (you can use any of your favorite colors or even Stampin' Write Markers or Colored Pencils).

Then I cut out the scene using one of the dies from the Lots of Labels Framelits.   And then cut a larger piece using the same Framelits set from Island Indigo CS and attached the two pieces using Tombow Glue.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and was stamped into a scrap piece of Whisper White CS using Island Indigo ink and then cut using the smallest die from the Lots of Labels Framelits and attached using glue, positioned as shown.

I popped up the piece with Dimensionals onto a bottom mat of Soft Sky CS that I embossed using the Seaside Embossing Folder.

I edged the mat using a frame that I cut from Island Indigo CS using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits.

The final piece was attached to a White Card Base using Tape Runner.

This A2 size card features the By the Bay Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! and was CASEd from one I saw online by Tina Zinck.

For my version of this card I began by stamping the large scenic stamp from the By the Bay Stamp Set toward the bottom of a top mat of Whisper White CS (4-3/4" x 3-1/2") using Black Archival Ink (leave enough room to stamp your sentiment underneath).

Next I stamped the seagulls from the High Tide stamp set toward the top of the card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Then I cut the top mat into 3 strips, the 2 outside strips are both 1-1/8" wide leaving the center strip at 1-1/4" wide.

I colored the center strip using Cajun Craze (siding), Old Olive & Always Artichoke (grass and bushes), Basic Black (roof), Basic Gray, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Early Espresso (pathways and rock walls) Stampin' Write markers.

I used a mask that I had stamped onto Post-it Tape and fussy cut it, to cover the scene, and then used Sponge Daubers to color the sky and water with Soft Sky, Island Indigo, and Blueberry Bushel inks.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the By the Bay Stamp Set (centered on the bottom of the piece) using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I attached the colored center strip using Tombow Glue to a piece of Soft Suede CS (1-1/2" by 3-1/2") - this left an 1/8" border on both side edges of the center piece.  
Then I attached the 2 uncolored strips onto a bottom mat  of Cajun Craze CS (5" x 3-3/4") leaving 1/8" border on each side and the top and bottom edges.  And then attached the center piece lining up the top and bottom edges.

The finished piece was attached to a bottom mat of Soft Suede CS (5-14" x 4") and then all attached to a standard A2 size White Card Base.

I began by stamping the "Scene" from the By the Bay stamp set and the Lighthouse from the High Tide stamp set onto  pieces of Post-It tape and then fussy cut them out.

I stamped the lighthouse toward the left side of a piece of Whisper White CS (standard top mat size) using Pacific Point and Smoky Slate inks. And then positioned the lighthouse mask on top of the stamped image.

Then I stamped the "scene" from the By the Bay stamp set on with Memento Tuxedo Black ink,  colored it with Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Smoky Slate and Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends sets, and then masked the stamped image.

I sponged the backgound with Marina Mist and Balmy Blue inks, and then stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Banners stamp set in Pacific Point ink.

After removing the masks I sprayed some Shimmer Spray across the finished card front and layered it onto a bottom mat of Cajun Craze CS, and once it was dry them layered them both onto a White Card Base.

This card was cased from one I saw on Pinterest by Linda's Stampin' Escape.
