Welcome to a Summer Mini Catalogue Blog Hop and wow does it have some great designs from other Stampin' Up Demonstrators from around Australia. You may be starting here or you may have come from Nikki Sadler's blog and didn't she showcase some wonderful creations today.
I am featuring The Open Seas stamp set which also has a matching Nautical Expedition Designer Series Paper.
Don't you just love all the different stamps with this set, I have used the background stamp on the Pool Party cardstock in Baja Breeze with a splashing of the compass in River Rock. I also used the River Rock ink on the Very Vanilla cardstock, which I have scuffed up with the Cutter Kit. The piece of Marina Mist has been torn at the top with the sides having the Cutter Kit applied. Finally, I have put the strip of Early Espresso cardstock through the Crimper to give more texture and then finishing it off with three Brads in Copper (which is now retired but you could use Silver Brads instead).
This card is a case of the example from in the Summer Mini Catalogue with a few changes as I did not have all the items featured.
Here is a close up of the tags, they were so much fun to make and to explain to my guests at my class that you can extend the size of the tags using the tag punches.
Finally I have been completing lots of scrapbooking pages of my life and here is the page on my trip to Sydney in 2010, where I was lucky enough to be staying at Darling Harbour and the day before I arrived Jessica Watson had finished her around the world adventure in this tiny little boat which just inspired me to use the Nautical Expedition Designer Series Paper.
And a close up of the DSP and boat and anchor from The Open Seas stamp set.
Thanks for visiting and now the adventure continues at Sue Madex's blog.
