I love Penny Black's Set Sail stamp set. Not only do they work on summer themed cards, but they work on masculine birthday cards as well! And masculine birthday cards are what I made with the stamps.
On the first card, I stamped the glass bottle and the little sail boat inside it before colouring the image with my Copics and fussy cutting it out. For the background, I die cut a panel with Zig-Zag Stackers die, left the die in place and sponged the panel with some Distress Oxide inks (Speckled Eggs, Weathered Wood and Broken China). I added a bit of patterned paper from Wintertime paper pad on my card base and added a die cut element behind the panel (die cut with Burlap Edge die). I heat embossed a sentiment from Snippets stamp set onto a strip of cardstock and adhered it in place (I adhered both the bottle and the sentiment strip with foam adhesives). Lastly, I embellished the card with some clear sequins.
I'm entering my card to the following challenges:
For the second card, I chose another cute sail boat from the Set Sail stamp set, coloured it with my Copics and fussy cut it out. I then created the background by smooshing different Distress ink pads on my craft mat, spritzing it with water and then smooshing a panel of watercolour paper on it. I die cut a frame for it with Stitched Circles die and adhered it to frame the panel I made. I heat embossed a sentiment from Carefree Wishes sentiment set onto a torn strip of vellum and adhred it onto the circular panel before adhering the sail boat with foam adhesives. Before adhering the circular panel onto my card base, I splattered some blue Distress inks onto it.
