The Open Sea Masculine Card - CCMC-SUM01

One of the great new sets in the Summer Occasions Mini is The Open Sea!  This set comes at just the right time of the year when we are preparing to make our Father's Day cards, graduation cards or birthday cards for the men in our lives.  This one just fits the bill for those projects!  Strong, sturdy, direction, adventurous... are some of the ideas that come to mind with this set.  This was a Make & Take for my workshop this past Thursday too!

I so like this Nautical Expedition Designer Paper and the color scheme of Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy, Early Espresso and Basic Grey!  The stripe from that collection is the basis of the color scheme for my card today;  I did add Sahara Sand and Whisper White cardstocks to the mix as a neutral colors for my composition too.  I am also posting this card to Create with Connie and Mary Summer weekly challenge CCMC-SUM01 today as these are the colors for the Challenge this week!
Love the compass; I added just a touch of color with my Blender Pen and Cherry Cobbler inkpad to make it pop;  an antique pewter mini brad in the center makes a fitting accent.
You can see the layers from this angle; also notice the new Baker's Twine in Cherry Cobbler and White!  It also comes in Early Espresso/White and solid White;  this is a great new accessory and is a very inexpensive way to accent your projects!

All these products can be ordered online through my Stampin' Up! store right HERE!  Be sure to order through my store and not directly through the Stampin' Up! website in order to get preferential pricing and also be able to earn Hostess Benefits on qualifying orders of $150. or more!

Don't forget the 30% Off Specials for the month of May and National Scrapbooking Month!!  There are some wonderful and wonderfully useful stamp sets on sale!  My very favorite is Word Play (can you ever have enough words/sentiments for your cards & projects?  I can't!).  Another favorite is the Printed Petals; Grunge Rock if you have tweens, teens or grandchildren,... you get the idea!  These sets are all good for stamping cards and projects, scrapbooking, 3-D projects et all!  Order through me (contact me here) or my online store before the end of May!

This is super awesome. I really like the overlay of stamp images. That creates such a strong look of dimension and style! I am so glad you added your card to the CCMC Challenge.
