Come Sail Away.......

come sail away......come sail away with me......  Any Styx fans out there singing along with me?????

Oh Boy Oh Boy - Stampin' Up! has really out done themselves with the nautical collection in the new Summer Mini that starts May1st - I don't live on the ocean or even own as much as a row boat.....but I am really drawn to nautical stuff.  This is THE collection to own for go to stamps for men, that's for sure.  I started with the Mojo Monday sketch - no shock huh?  I am so addicted to sketches.......  {{sigh}}

Here is the sketch goodness:

Looks great like it is, huh????  Well - I rotated it to fit my needs :)  Wanna see what I did with it???

Okay - here is my sailing goodness:

Do you see the new goodies???  The designer series paper - Nautical Expedition, The stamp set - The Open Sea, punch - Postage Stamp Punch, and finally......Cherry Cobbler/ White baker's Twine - Hello!!!  These are some drop dead gorgeous things!!! 

I also used a game spinner hand on my compass.....{luv} it :)
take a closer look at the water colored sail boat and compass:

The ship and compass were stamped onto watercolor paper and water colored with my aquapainter and ink da bup ba da.....i'm lovin' it!!!!  ;)

What do you think of The Open Sea?  I am totally smitten with the new collection......makes me yearn to see what the New Idea Book and Catalog will have in store for us.......  {{sigh}}

Regina, what a cute idea to put the spinner on your compass. LOVE YOUR CARD. You did a great job in creating it.
