The open Sea

Hi everyone,
I'm suppose to be working on building up my inventory for my pet business, but my Stampin' Up order came yesterday. So I just had to blow off work. The Open Sea stamp set was so far down on my wish list I didn't think I was ever going to get it. But I did. So I spent today playing with it. I made a set of 4 cards. Each for a different challenge. Ok so how am I going to do this. I'll start with what I used and if anything is added I'll let you know.
 So I used from Stampin' Up
Card stock- Not Quite Navy, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla
Inks- Not quite Navy and Crumb cake
Stamp set- The Open Sea

Try stamping on Tuesday

My card
I added natural twine and Wild Wasabi ink

Retro Sketches

My card.
 I added natural twine, spellbinder circle die, 3/4" circle punch, and  Wild Wasabi ink.

Less is More
                               USE BEADS IN YOUR PROJECT

Here is my card
Add supplies
Both the tag punches, natural twine, and some beads


And here is the last card in my collection
The only thing I added is some blue twine that I found in my stash

So that's it for my  Open Sea card set. I hope you liked all my creation. Please stop back again soon.
Oh and  by the way, I don't feel one bit guilty about not working today
See ya later

I am curious to find out what blog platform you're working with? I'm experiencing some minor security issues with my
latest site and I would like to find something more safeguarded.

Do you have any solutions?
