Hello, Sailor- AWW


 
Welcome back to another round of the Stampin' Up Artisan Wednesday Wow Blog Hop! I think this week's project are my favorite from this box. I am really in a nautical mood lately and I think it's because I have the SU cruise coming up in just a couple of weeks! So, playing with the Hello, Sailor stamp set helped me get even more excited about our upcoming days at sea!

I started with a basic idea- Night of Navy Chevron background.... Crumb Cake Cardstock...little red cluster in the bottom corner. And from that basic idea, I created four different cards!
Not only did I use the Chevron background stamp and the Hello Sailor set, I found that the Tape It set was a nice partner as well. It helped me start my "little stack of goodies" and build up from there. This one also includes two little die cut arrows (framelits) and Core'dinatons cardstock. 


The next one added in a little Baked Brown Sugar washi tape stamps. And, I used my Stampin' Write markers to color the stamp. Colorign stamps with markers is an easy "wow" you should try!


The next one includes a Full Heart punch from the Real Red Core'dinations cardstock. And a loose linen thread bow BEHIND the stamped image. This is very trendy right now. I see lots of little twine nests on cards all over Pinterest!

Do you see how my chevron stamp didn't quite stamp all the way in the corner.. .I could have considered that an oops.. but I actually loved it!! Very distressed look. And it was an accident! Love when that happens!

The last one includes the ABC-123 Sketch Alphabet set. I saw a sign online with this LOVE design and had to make a card using it! So cute! 


So as you can see, the Hello, Sailor stamp set can create a variety of fun cards. Each is simple, relatively similar, yet very different card. I love this set and thinks it really lends itself to masculine cards. 


Ok, now you're on to your next stop. Go check out what my friend Jane Lee has on her blog today. Make sure to leave her a little blog love before you leave! Have a wonderful week!
