Guest Stamper: Linda K.

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’d like to share with you another card from our Spring (April) Stampin’ Retreat card swap … Our guest stamper today is Linda K.

Open Sea -2

Linda used the very versatile “The Open Sea” stamp set and showcased the stamps beautifully. I love the simple neutral color pallet … works great for guys!

Linda used the Basic Gray for her background, and Basic Black to mat each stamped image.

Just look at the detail Linda has put into her card … the paper piercing around the globe really adds a nice touch to the card.

Open Sea -1

A great birthday card, and could easily be used for Fathers Day as well. In fact, you could use it as a graduation card … reflecting on the direction (compass) of their dreams, and conquering the world.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. I hope you are as inspired by Linda’s card as I was.

Have a wonderful weekend ~



Dream … The Open Sea

Hello Stampers!

Just a quick post today … I know your busy!

I wanted to share a card (I cased from a fellow demonstrator) that we did at one of my all day stampin’ events.  It’s a great “MAN” card and we used the “Triple Time” Technique.  It’s just perfect for the “Open Sea” stamp set (page 101)

Dream - june 15 13

The colors just make this card!  We used Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, and “my new black” …. Early Espresso!

I also want to show you a close up of the beautiful “Antique Brads”  (117273) – they go with so many styles of stamping.  This little one worked perfect for our nautical theme.

bradHave an awesome Saturday!
