Sailing “The Open Sea”!

On the Open Seas

Love, love, love this stamp set!  These projects are great for Father’s Day.  The first is a card using the Mosaic technique which I taught at my last  Technique Tuesday class. It’s so easy to make the mosaic stamp for this project by using all the remnants of your leftover rubber from your stamp sets and the largest of Stampin’ Up!’s acrylic blocks.

Mosaic Acrylic Block

 I tried using the clear mount stamps when Stampin’ Up! first released them and purchased several of the acrylic blocks, but found out I am a die hard wood block stamper so I have a few acrylic blocks available now to use for this technique.  Just cut up the remnants and adhere them close together on the acrylic block. Stamp your image in black ink and color in with chalks, ink or markers. Apply Versamark Ink to the large mosaic stamp you made and stamp over the entire  image. Apply clear embossing powder and heat dry with your heat tool. Allow to cool and then with a sponge dauber rub Basic Gray or Basic Black over your entire image (i.e., apply your grout) and then wipe off any excess ink from the embossed areas with a kleenex.  I used the new Baker’s twine in Cherry Cobbler/White to embellish. I finished off the card on the interior with this beautiful saying from the stamp set “Word Play”.

Add a restaurant gift card along with a movie gift card to go see the “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” to this double-sided box for Dad!  The boxes are  made with the Box #2 Sizzix Die and the Big Shot. Not Quite Navy and Cherry Cobbler are great nautical colors to use with this stamp set.

The last project is a hidden Kit Kat bar.  I love this trick to hide candy! Wrap your designer paper around your candy bar and crimp the ends with your crimper for decoration.
