Stampin' Up! The Open Sea &
Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Hop!
We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who will be bringing you lots of ideas for one particular stamp set twice a month (Sometimes trice a month)!! The 1st and 3rd Monday of each month, you can hop along from one blog to the next gathering all kinds of inspiration for one Stampin' Up! stamp set. This set has been around for a few years now. It has such a timeless appeal, I think it has some real staying power though. It can be very masculine, and gender neutral as well. It can be used for many occasions and age groups. Vintage, rustic, trendy, and whimsical. You will find them all here!

Putting It Together Tips:
- The frames ame made using Brushed Gold Card Stock in the Designer Frames Embossing Folder. I used a Sponge Dauber with Early Esppresso Classic Ink to antique the oval one. The insets are Soft Suede Classic Ink script on Very Vanilla Card Stock. The Ship is stamped in Early Espresso Classic Ink and the Anchor in Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder.
- The compass was created by stamping the image twice on Early Espresso Card Stock with VersaMark and Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder. I punched one out to that the points revealed the N and S and the other showing the E and W. Then I matched them up!
- The frame for the Birthday Wishes sentiment was created with a 3/4" strip of Early Espresso Card Stock. I inserted one end into the Ticket Duo Punch first. Then I created the sentiment on a 1/2" strip of Very Vannilla Card stock using Very Vanilla Card stock and Early Espresso Classic Ink. I attached the sentiment to the Early Espresso punched strip and then inserted the other end into the Ticket Duo Punch.
