Weathered Sailing | Simple Stamping Monday

It’s summertime, and it seems naturally our attention is drawn to the ocean. The ocean is pretty big in our home. My boys love all things underwater from coral reefs to the mysterious creatures in the depths of the abyss. They can’t wait until they reach the age where they can begin taking SCUBA lessons so they can explore underwater secrets in real life.

My boys love to draw underwater scenes.

 

My husband also loves the sea and dreams of living in a sailboat for a year or two. What an adventure that would be!

I thought it would be fitting to make a few nautical cards for Simple Stamping Monday. The Sailing Home stamp set is really perfect for quick and easy or beginner cards.  The sentiments and images are so beautiful and detailed that they can really stand on their own. This would be a perfect set to use to make a set of cards to gift to a friend as well.

My second card may look intimidating, but it’s really easy as well. It only takes one additional and very inexpensive tool to achieve an aged or weathered look, and this is a technique you can use on any card.
