AUGUST STAMP CAMP–LET’S SET SAIL

08.02.22 Let's Set Sail FlatLet’s Set Sail provides us with the perfect opportunity to use a different stamping technique.  Our sunset background is done with painters tape!  The colors used are So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Petal Pink and Calypso Coral.  Masking tape is a bit narrower and could also be used.  A piece of tape is placed over the open ink pad and lightly pressed with your finger.  The tape is then placed on your white card stock and again, lightly pressed with your finger.  The tape does not stick and is easily pulled off.  This process is repeated with the next color and you overlap the previous color with your tape.  This is repeated with all 4 colors.  A 2 5/8 circle is die cut and stamped with 6 black stamped sea gulls.  Sea Gulls are also stamped on the front card layer.  A Merry Merlot sailboat is stamped and punched producing 3 images that are adhered to your card front.

08.01.22 Let's Set Sail DimensionalsThe second sample has slightly different coloring.  I actually prefer the first sample as it has more Calypso Coral.  The sailboat in this sample has the sails popped up on Mini Dimensionals which gives the card additional depth.  A single red rhinestone adds a bit of glitz.  The message is stamped in Merry Merlot. 

Let's Set Sail Msg. LayerThe envelope and message layer feature a stamp from Wetlands – an older stamp set from my archives.  The little Merry Merlot sandpipers scurrying across a sandy beach are reminiscent of a day spent sailing. 

Thus far, we have seen pansy and masculine birthday cards.  What’s next?  Is this a card you would like to make for August Stamp Camp?  Please let me know which cards you would like to make and which day you would like to come – August 4th, 5th or 6th.  Or come all 3 days and we can have a party!
