The Stamp Review Crew; The Open Sea
Welcome 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!"
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!
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!!
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.
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!
