I used the Open Sea stamp set, which I am super excited to say has become a write-in item for the remainder of this stamping year! Yay, it's not discontinued!! This stamp set is perfect for masculine cards. I used only the Open Sea stamp set and Little Friends stamp set (for the little Happy Birthday sentiment). Both cards are made with Marina Mist, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, and Early Espresso. Fun colors to work with, masculine, yet bright.
This first card is for the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge. Clean and Simple!
The second version is for Create with Connie and Mary. A few extra embellishments and some Crystal Effects for a whole new card!
I had so much fun stamping this week...I escaped to my mother-in-law's cabin with her and my daughter for a stamp-a-thon while my husband demolished our downstairs bathroom (gotta love remodeling!). So far the dust has settled, however new dust will be started as the building begins! In the meantime, I will just be sneezing...A LOT!! And I will be posting some of the new projects I made while on Stamp-cation:). Stay Tuned!
