Hi Everyone: Yes, we are still having snow, however, that is trivial in light of one of my friends in the Tangled Up in Creativity blogging group whose family suffered through the tornadoes in North Carolina. She and her family are OK and are in my thoughts.
I am sharing one of the new stamp sets, along with the coordinating DSP that will be available on May 1, 2011. The stamp set is called the Open Sea and there are so many possibilities with this stamp set and even better, it will help you with those masculine cards that are often hard to come up....Father's Day, Birthdays, and anything in between. So in keeping with a birthday and a male, this card is for my son-in-law.
So here is the sneak peek
Stamps: The Open Sea, Something to Celebrate (Hostess Level 2, Occasions Mini), Bring on The Cake (c – 121958 $33.95, w – 121899 $47.95, Occasions Mini p 20)
Paper: Natural Ivory, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Not Quite Navy, Nautical Expedition DSP
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Big Shot, Tasteful Trim Die, Postage Stamp Punch, Early Espresso/White Baker’s Twine, Ticket Corner Punch
Using the passenger list stamp from the Open Sea stamp set and Chocolate Chip ink, I over stamped one of the lighter pieces of DSP. The layered imaged was wrapped with the Early Espresso/White Baker's Twine (lots of possibilities with this) and finally, the compass was stamped using Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White and then punched with the new Postage Stamp Punch.
Don't forget the promotion that is currently going on with Stampin Up! - Spring is Blooming Promotion. You can check out all the details Here.
Enjoy the rest of your evening and stay tuned for more sneak peeks.
Until next time....
