I'm loving all the nautical themed stamps that we're seeing these days. My new favorite? Lawn Fawn's Float My Boat Stamp Set and coordinating Float My Boat Lawn Cuts dies. I paired the nautical stamps with my one of my favorite color combinations at the moment: mint + peach. The Simon Says Stamp Mint Cardstock is gorgeous.
I used the SSS Tri Square Craft Die to cut windows in an 4" x 5.25" piece of SSS Mint Cardstock. I used a border stamp from Belinda's Borders to "frame" the mint cardstock by stamping around all four sides with the SSS Mint Ink. Because the border stamp is longer than each side, I used a post-it to mask off the end of one side so that the stamp wouldn't extend all the way to the edge. I stamped the greeting and seagulls from Float My Boat in SSS Black Ink.
I stamped the anchor with AE Mint To Be Ink and colored over the stamping with the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker. I punched a hole through the top of the anchor and threaded the Coral Lawn Trimmings Twine through, knotting it and securing it allong the bottom of the card with Glossy Accents.
I stamped the boat with SSS Black Ink and colored in the image with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and blended with Gamsol. I added white dots detailing with the Sakura White Opaque Glaze Gel Pen. I stamped the little heart on the sailboat and it wasn't showing up very good so I went over the shape with the Wink of Stella Silver Glitter Marker.
I stamped the life preserver with Hero Arts Fresh Peach Ink and added glitter detailing with the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker.
To add some interest behind the square die cut windows, I stamped the triangle background from Sharp Backdrops using SSS Mint Ink and layerd vellum over the stamping to mute it just a bit before securing it behind the mint cardstock piece. I popped up the entire mint cardstock with foam adhesive.
