Today I am sharing another stamp set that is great for masculine cards. The set is called Set Sail (SS-0618). It came in my June Bloom Box from FSJ. I love nautical themed everything. Also, in the Bloom Box are four card kits. This is one of the kits made into a card, with a little addition of my own.
I added the World Map background stamp to the base of the card. I think it helps draw the eye into the ship. I love that little ship in a bottle!
The cork on the bottle has been paper pieced. The bottle is stamped with Black Licorice on Cool Pool card stock. Then I stamped just the cork end on a piece of Oatmeal Cookie in Black Licorice, cut it out and glue it over the top of the one on the Cool Pool Card stock. Attention to the little details on hand made cards is what makes them so special.
To color the ship I used the Journey Color Burst pencils. Can I just say, it is so relaxing to sit back and color an image and watch it come to life.
Now, let me tell you about the snafu I had with my waves. First of all I fussy cut them before I realized there is a die for the waves! No worries. Second, I covered my waves with Journey Glaze. I was moving things around on my desk a while later and a piece of paper touched the almost dried glaze. I tried carefully to remove it but, paper stuck to it. I ended up scraping that paper off and was feeling like I ruined my card! Then I realized it gave the waves a bit of textures and so I decided to leave it instead of rip it on and make new ones. There is no stress in stamping friends! Especially when you have a kit ready to make cards with. I love the Bloom Box when I want to play but my creative brain is needing a break.
Another bit of news on Bloom Box stamp sets. After the month is over Bloom Box stamp sets will now be available in my On-Line store for 3 months! So, you can purchase the Set Sail Bloom Box today, but after today you will be getting the July Bloom Box. If you want the Set Sail stamp set (SS-0618) and die set (DI-0488), search them at my On-Line store through September.
You can see all the cards in this kit in the video below.
