The Open Sea

Need a great male card? The Open Sea stamp set is wonderful for making masculine cards and here is a great card that my friend Bonnie gave me recently during one of our demonstrator gatherings. I really like the way she used our Stampin’ Distressing Tool (item 127562) from the Spring Catalog to distress the edges of the card stock.

Did you notice that this card was created using our Not Quite Navy Ink and Cardstock that are being retired? Although I’m excited about the upcoming Color Refresh, I’m going to really miss Not Quite Navy. It’s always been one of my go to colors for masculine cards. I’m sure I’ll find myself reaching for our In Color Midnight Muse more and more when Not Quite Navy is no longer available soon.

By the Seashore

This summer I spent some time with my daughter visiting my sister and her husband in Texas. We made a lovely day trip to Galveston and played in the surf for a while. Part of the fun that day was the ride we took on the ferry and looking for sea shells on the beach. So when my friend Teresa gave me this card made with By the Seashore in a recent swap I was tickled. It reminded me of those wonderful memories.

By the Seashore is a great stamp set and the images are bold which makes it a perfect set to do all kinds of techniques with. I love the colors Teresa chose to use when she designed this card it makes me think of the colors of the ocean and the Linen Thread adds some texture.

So the next time you need to relax and get away why not stamp a little scrapbook page or card with our By the Seashore stamp set? It’s sure to bring back those vacation memories.
