I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp sets called The Open Sea, Hardwood and Watercolor Wings to create my card for The Paper Players theme challenge this week. The challenge is to create a clean and simple project featuring frames…I may have gotten a little carried away on the clean and simple part. 🙂
I was so happy to see some designer paper in the new Stampin’ Up! catalog with more traditional nautical colors and designs. The Maritime DSP has some prints that are more fun with the little fish and octopus but some that will work great for masculine cards too. I used a little of the Maritime DSP and The Open Sea stamp set to create my card to share today.
I’m posting a little early this morning, I’m off to go volunteer at the Sweet H2O Sweetheart Half Marathon at a park just outside Atlanta. It’s a trail race and with all of the melting snow, I’m guessing that the runners will be covered from head to toe in mud! But it will be lots of fun, I’ll try to grab and post some pictures on my Facebook page. 🙂
Today I’m sharing a birthday card that I made with The Open Sea stamp set and the new Scalloped Tag Topper Punch from Stampin’ Up! My card design was inspired by the Mojo Monday 332 Sketch.
I used The Open Sea stamp set to create a masculine birthday card to share with you today. I couldn’t resist adding a touch of the Birch Paper Ribbon from the Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit. I tried stamping on it for the first time and I think it has a really neat effect!
My card design was inspired by the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 278.
Today I’m sharing a card that I made with the Stampin’ Up! stamp set called The Open Sea. I’m also giving you another sneak peek at some new colors…Smoky Slate and Baked Brown Sugar. I distressed and sponged everything on this card! And I had to take a deep breath before I allowed myself to tear a chunk of card stock off the top, I’m usually far to obsessed with getting things exactly right to just rip a piece off….but I’m learning to let go. 🙂
