The Open Sea is Neverending

The Open Sea Trio

Yes, neverending in the number of cards you can create using this stamp set!  Once again you can see how versatile this stamp set is!  These three cards I created for my baggie sampler with my Sherindipity Stampers Group.  We all created three cards with new stamp sets from the Summer Mini Catalog.    I wanted to make cards that were easily duplicatable for my downline to use in their workshops.  As most of my customers know, I have a very hard time making “easy” cards.  I love techniques and adding embellishments so most of my cards are not this easy! LOL!

I used bits of the Nautical Expedition Designer Series Paper on two of them.  But mostly, I stamped my backgrounds with just plain old stamping.

Remember When

This first card uses one of my favorite embellishments – an Antique Brad as well the new Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine. The wording says it all for this card – it’s from the stamp set Word Play.

The World

The second card was quick to come together by randomly stamping the images from The Open Sea stamp set all over a Basic Gray card base in Night of Navy ink.  Such great stamps to work with in this set to do random stamping.  This is how I first started stamping.  Didn’t really have a great selection of designer background papers like we do now so we had to make our own backgrounds with stamps.  I stamped the wording again in Cherry Cobbler so I could punch out the “world” and popped it up on a dimensional. 

Perfect Adventure

The third card combines random stamping of the compass using Whisper White Craft Ink and paired it with Designer Series Paper in rich Cherry Cobbler striping.  I did however pull a word stamp from another stamp set featured in the Summer Mini Catalog – On the Grow.  Used that awesome Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine Again.  It’s a great deal at 25 yards for only $2.95!

  1. Great job on these masculine cards!

  2. Is there a difference between white craft ink and white Staz-on ink?? I am looking to order one of those and not decided which. Any suggestions?? Pros or Cons?

    • I prefer the Craft Ink because I can use it for more tasks – scrapbooking, embossing and on fabric. If you are using it direct to paper allow for drying time unless you are embossing it. I find that with my Stazon pad I have to always ink it up before using it – the pad seems alittle dryer too. The bonus with Stazon is it is a permanent ink and you can watercolor with it and your inks won’t bleed together. However, you can watercolor with Craft Ink too just so long as you are embossing it first.
