Hope you're having a great Sunday. We are having an exceptionally warm, very windy day here in Northern Florida. After doing lots of paper work the past couple of weeks, I finally have some time to stamp today. Here is a card I made for the weekly challenge over on Late Night Stampers. It's a talented group of stampers that are always inspiring. Check it out here.
I needed a masculine theme card and love the stamp set, The Open Sea.
The card base is Naturals White. The strip is a piece of Not Quite Navy card stock, layered with a strip of the Not Quite Navy Designer Series Paper from the Regals Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack.
The image is from The Open Sea and is stamped on Naturals White card stock in Not Quite Navy Classic Ink. I used the Circle Scissors Plus and Circle Scissor Plus Glass Mat to cut out the circle after stamping the image. This is layered on a slightly larger Not Quite Navy circle cut the same way. The Real Red circle is punched using the 2-1/2" Circle Punch. This is attached to the card using SNAIL Adhesive.
The compass is from the same set and colored using Stampin' Write Markers in Real Red and Not Quite Navy. I used Paper Snips (love these!) to trim close to the line, cutting off the N, S, E and W letters. This is popped up on a Stampin' Dimensional. I've included a clear block size below. To use the larger stamp in the clear mount set you would need to get Clear Block "E".
Thinking of You... is from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set and is colored using the Real Red Marker.
The clean and simple look can speak volumns sometimes, plus they're easy to reproduce at a moments notice.
