Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog to check out the full suite of stamps released today...you should have arrived here from Iwona's blog, if not follow this link to pick up any missing Blog Hop Links...
Considering I missed the Day of Ships I opted to use the nautical stamp sets for my Blog Hop Card... I am first to admit that I am not totally comfortable with nautical themes, I need a lot more practice, but these stamps are pretty dreamy to work with... I kept the stamping pretty simple, and the colours very traditional!!
I used the square knot from Tying the Knot on the dark blue border strip, it lines up beautifully and adds a nice subtle border strip when stamped colour on colour.... I dressed it with a little nautical knot and popped it up on the most nautical looking paper in my stash!! The rest was a case of including a good dash of the multitude of stamps from Ocean Bound, adding a little bit of rope to the bottom of the sentiment panel to bring it into an even size with the other panels. The little red stamped circles are elements from the Safe Harbour Sentiments, balancing out the colours a little... and I already had my circle punch out thanks to the flowers included in this release.... so I thought why not!!!
So there it is, my little touch of nautical.... don't forget to leave comments along your Blog Hop journey, one random comment will earn the writer a WMS Prize, you have until August 12 at 11:59PM GMT to enter the prize drawer.... once that is done continue with the wild array of cards in this Blog Hop by heading over to visit Jeanne, enjoy!!
