Stampin' Addicts Summer Mini Blog Hop


Welcome All to the Stampin' Addicts Summer Mini Blog Hop!! We're so glad you're here!! You've probably just come from Sarah's Ink Spot. Didn't she do a great job with Pretty Postage?!? 

I am featuring the single stamp, Sail Away. It may be single but it has lots of potential! Let me give you a few ideas!! I am going to be brief with details here, but come back Monday and Tuesday of next week and I will elaborate. I used a couple different techniques on the boat so we'd have a little variety!! All SU! catalog products I used are listed below the Previous & Next links. Remember too, you can click each sample to make it larger to view details better!


First up is a Watercolored Boat. I used Watercolor Crayons on Watercolor Paper with a Blender Pen. Colors are Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy & Cherry Cobbler. The Baja background was textured with the "diamond" Texturz plate then spritzed with Log Cabin Smooch Spritz. Accents are Build a Brad, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, Postage Stamp Punch, 'thanks' from Pretty Postage.


Next up is this Hello card. I used Polished Stone on this one. Colors for that were Bashful Blue, Marina Mist and Night of Navy with Platinum Shimmer Paint. The background print is from the Nautical Expedition DSP pack. Accents are Wide Navy Striped Ribbon, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, 'Hello Hello Hello from Happy Greetings, & Silver Brads.


This one took a few tries to get right, but I love it now! The first colors I tried just weren't right. The technique here on the boat is Acetate and Tissue. Reinkers are used with Crystal Effects then tissue applied. Colors are Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White & Crumb Cake. I wheeled the Classic Stars in Baja across the First Edition DSP. BTW, First Edition DSP will still be available after May 1. Accents, Mini Library Clip with Linen Thread, Star Punch, 'Congrats' from Happy Greetings.


And finally, a 3D item. I thought the boat would be the perfect fit for the Fancy Favor box and it is. This boat was just spritzed with Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy markers.. I did mask the sails and boat where I didn't want color. I didn't have room to attach the saying, so I put in a Jumbo Eyelet and tied it there. Now, if only I had some candy to put in it!! Nothing to be found in my house :(

Thanks for stopping by everyone! I hope you'll return soon! Remember, details next week and all items used are listed below the links. Continue on the Hop to Heidi at RunningwScissors or the NEXT below to see what she came up with using Travel Log. You won't be sorry!!
