THE OPEN SEA, INSPIRED BY STAMPIN'

Hello my sweet blog friends! How are you? Are you enjoying the gorgeous summer weather??? I am so happy it is Friday. Smile And I don’t have any plans this weekend. I am so happy about that! I am really looking forward to lounging around this weekend. It doesn’t happen very often!

I had a few comments yesterday about coloring the embossing image. Click here if you missed my card. I embossed the image first and then colored it very carefully using Bashful Blue and Wild Wasabi markers. Also, don’t forget my braying embossing video but that’s mostly for a single color. I hope this helps!

Hugs to you all!!!

THE OPEN SEA, INSPIRED BY STAMPIN'

Nautical Expedition Designer Series Paper took front stage today. I coordinated it with Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Whisper White. I love this tiny tag with the “4 you” sentiment from Tiny Tags stamp set. I used the DSP with the Lace Ribbon Border punch. I then layered a piece of retired Early Espresso Grosgrain ribbon.

I stamped the world image on Crumb Cake card stock and then gently sniped the image using my Paper Snips. I stamped the ship using Night of Navy and also sniped it out. I daubed the edges using Crumb Cake ink.

Early Espresso Baker’s Twine was wrapped around my card four times and then knotted with my sentiment.

    Excellent card. Love the details, true quality. This is probably the first card I’ve seen by you w/o a pearl or a rhinestone! Enjoy your weekend.
