Happy Monday! We are now down to the very last week of school. Four more half days, and my daughter is done with her Junior year of high school. My son finished his first year of college several weeks ago. Hooray! I need a vacation.
As we crawl towards Summer Break, my mind fills with thoughts of vacation and sailing away. Funny story, I love the romantic notion of sailing away, but I get terribly seasick. I can’t even watch boats bob in the water because it makes me sick. Oh well. I can still enjoy the thought of sailing away.
The Come Sail Away Suite is the perfect nautical suite with lots of maritime images. Today’s card is another one of our make & takes from OnStage. One of the reasons I love attending OnStage is getting a chance to play with brand new products.
The watercolor paper has a light wash of color across the entire background and then the compass is stamped on the paper. When doing this technique, you’ll need to let the watercolor paper dry thoroughly before adding any additional stamps. If you try to stamp it while the paper is wet, you’ll smear the stamp.
That brown rope across the bottom of the card is actually a die cut. It both cuts the shape and embosses the rope design at the same time. The anchor charm is part of the coordinating suite. I believe the anchor charms are on backorder right now, but they’ll be back in stock soon.
Wednesday’s post will be up a little early (as in late Tuesday night) as I join the What’s New at SU Blog Hop again. This time we’re sharing all new things from the brand new Catalog. You definitely don’t want to miss the Hop this week!
