Father’s Day is tomorrow and The Open Sea stamp set is a great one to use when making masculine cards. I love the nautical look and The Open Sea is one of my favorites. Anything water themed is, even though I love living in Georgia I miss Lake Michigan and being able to go to the lake front anytime I want to. I always found watching the waves roll in with my high school friends’ fun and it is one of the things I miss most about Milwaukee.
I recently had my TEAM meeting and this is one of the cards we made during the event. I love the way Joann used The Open Sea stamp set and all of the texture too.
Did you notice the mirror image under the boat? This is an example of one of the techniques you can learn when you’re a Club member with me.
Texture is another way to bump up the impact of your cards and its sooo easy.
Another trick that makes stamping easy is to place your sentiment onto another piece of card stock instead of directly on the inside of your card. That way if you make a mistake, no problem – you can just do it again. And, of course, the framelits make it really easy and decorative too!
