Today I’m thinking of the shore of Lake Michigan and the trips I used to make as a teenager to the beach in Milwaukee with my Beach Boys playing on the radio. Ahh… I’m dating myself but I used to love to watch the waves roll in and the boats on the lake. It didn’t matter what time of year it was always a wonderful view. It’s been many years since I’ve done that, but the memories still make me smile and bring back that summer time feel. So today I’m sharing some wonderful cards made with the Sailing Home stamp set.
This first card focuses on the sail boat and uses our wonderful Seabed 3D Embossing Folder (152700) and In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (152494).
The sentiment from the Rustic Retreat stamp set (150285) has been punched out with the Timeless Label Punch (149516). This next card uses some simple sponging to create the waves under the sail boat.
And these next two cards use some simple techniques to make them extra special. This first card uses a torn edge to create the land for the light house.
And this final card uses some simple sponging done in the corner. A simple mask was used to create the sharp lines, simply by placing a couple of sticky notes to mask off the area.
So simple, but striking with just Pacific Point and Basic Gray ink being used. So are you feeling a bit of my summer time vibe now? I think this last card is my favorite of the group today. How about you? Do you have a favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know which one you like best?
