P1060001Hi Everyone! Today's post is a two-fer 🙂 I had so much fun playing with the images with The Open Sea ( wood mount 123030, clear mount 123032) The set is in the Summer Mini. I used Cherry Cobbler 119669 and Not Quite Navy 103008 ink (both are in the Regals Collection Stampin' Spots 119713). I first stamped all images with Not Quite Navy, then with Cherry Cobble. I then either trimmed or punched out the images for a double set. 

P1060002  Other stamp sets used: Wonder Favorites 115114 (father stamp),  and In a Word (journey stamp)
Cardstock: Sahara Sand 121043, Cherry Cobbler 119685, Not Quite Navy 101722
Accessories: Bakers Twin in Cherry Cobble/White in the Summer Mini 123125, Linen Thread 104199
Tools: Sponge Dauber 102892, 2-1/2" Circle Punch, 2" x 1-3/8" Oval punch 119859, 1-1/4" Circle Punch 119861

The images can be used for a variety of card themes, especially with a masculine feel. (we all seem to struggle finding a masculine stamp set to have on hand!) Uses for birthday, graduation, father's day, someone who is in or has served in the navy.

 

 

 

 

P1060004 The images also lend themselves as background images as shown in the this card.
To make the background, ink image stamp, and stamp again without reinking. 

I heavily sponge inked around the card base and images. Tear and crinkle accenting cardstock.

Happy Crafting! ~ Dee
