The Stamp Review Crew; The Open Sea

SRC-Open-Sea-001Welcome to another The Stamp Review Crew Hop!! We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who will be bringing you lots of ideas for one particular stamp set twice a month!!  The 1st and 3rd Monday of each month, you can hop along from one blog to the next gathering all kinds of inspiration for one Stampin' Up! stamp set.

I so excited for the fun to start!! We have a great group of talented stampers for this hop!!  If you are following the hop in order you just arrived from Shana Gaff's blog Stress-Free Stamping with Shana where she made some beautiful projects!!! We are featuring The Open Sea Stamp Set from the Main Catalog. I must confess this is one of my favorite sets!!

"This set has been around for a few years now. It has such a timeless appeal, I think it has some real staying power though. It can be very masculine, and yet it can be gender neutral also. It can be used for many occasions and age groups. Vintage, rustic, trendy, and whimsical. You will find all of those uses here!"

Open Sea 1

Here is the front of my first card I created using The Open Sea Stamp Set. It just screams summer to me :). I paired it with the World Map Background Stamp. I used a lots of fun items from the main catalog and occasions catalog! I did lots of fun things with this card! It's the perfect Birthday Card!

Open Sea 1 Inside

On the inside I of course use The Open Sea Stamp Set to add more detail. The Island Indigo Baker's Twine perfect with this set!!

Open Sea 2 Front

Here is the front of my second card I created using The Open Sea Stamp Set. Won't be long and Father's Day will be here! This set works really well for Masculine ideas too!! I paired it with the Amazing Family Stamp Set. I wanted the images to be subtle but the Father to really stand out more.

Open Sea 2 Inside

Here is the inside and again I took the stamps from The Open Sea Stamp Set and stamped on the inside. I kept them subtle on the inside too.

I hope you liked my two cards!! I had a lot of fun creating them. I will be sharing the details on each card over the next few weeks so be sure to stop back!  Now you'll want to head on over to Yapha's blog yaphamason.com and see her fabulous creation!!

Thanks for stopping by! Have fun with the tour!




Wonderful cards, Holly! Love the details inside and out!

Two different color schemes for two awesome cards! They are both gorgeous.

I love all of the layers on both of your cards. The insides are really nice too!

These cards a great! Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful cards, Holly! Love all the button, twine, and burlap details.

Your cards are very pretty Holly. Lots of layers and elements but still have a clean feel to them. Great balance.

Gorgeous cards! I love the layers with the burlap on the first one!

How beautiful your composition is. I have never been much at creating collage. I'm very structured with my compositions. I really envy folks with talent like yours!

Two very different but very creative cards, Holly. I love your color combinations and the different embellishments. I agree - so fun!

Great card, Holly!

Beautiful collage-look for both of these. You always have the prettiest card-insides too!

Both cards are terrific, but the first one makes my heart sing! LOVE the summery shades and the burlap, the layout -- well, everything!

Love all the textures.

Both of these cards are gorgeous, but the first one is my favorite. The colors and clean, yet layered look really draw the eye. Burlap, blue, brown, and yellow, AND buttons! Love!

Very nice card, and good for so many occasions and gender neutral too. TFS Jess
