The Open Sea ~ Birthday

Hello again, everyone.  Today's card is the only masculine card I did for my July stamp a stack, so I thought I would start with that one.  I loved how it turned out...once I figured out where to put all the pieces!  I tell ya...I SO wish this set was not retiring at the end of the month, but instead had carried over into the new catalog.  It seemed to be a very popular set.  Oh well, I can still use it all I want. :)

Thought a zoomed in picture would help a little too...

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Stamp Sets:  The Open Sea & On Your Birthday
Card Stock:  Early Espresso, Pacific Point, Crumb Cake & Whisper White
Classic Stampin' Pads:  Pacific Point
Versa Mark (for embossed images)
Punches:  1 3/8" Circle, 1 1/4" Circle, Modern Label & Word Window
Embossing Powder in White

I embossed the images on white paper using versa mark and white embossing powder.  To get the color I rubbed with a sponge starting in the center and moving out from there until I had the color just the way I wanted it.  I rubbed the embossed image with a paper towel to get the ink off the white and bring it out more.


  1. What color ink did you use on the sponging? Pacific?

  2. I hate to say pretty on a 'man' card, but the sponging on this is beautiful! I love the color combination, perfect for a masculine card.


Thank you for your comments. I read everyone! If you ever wonder how I've made something I'd be glad to let you know! Sara
