This is one of my favorite stamp sets. I love what you've done to create this card. Thank you!


Love, Love, Love it! I love all things nautical, so this card is a hit! I do want that set! You should see my wish list! lol I love the wood background too. You've hit it out of the park... again. There's nothing I don't like on this one. TFS Jess

Love this card and pinned it last night. The compass looks like a metal embellishment. Can't wait to CASE this project.

Cheryl McAskill

Awesome Card! Just e-mailed you two of mine. Not worthy of a blog hop, but I had fun making them.

Tanya Boser

Wow Mike, so many awesome details on this card! I adore Hardwood stamp, so that made me happy, and the frames with wonderful layered stamping are inspiring too. The best tip was the Mosaic punch tip with the compass! Genius!


Love this, Mike. The gold is great!

Cindy Beach

THe look of the Hardwood and the frames together is perfect. Love your card, Mike!


FABULOUS card, Mike. I hope The Open Sea has the longevity that Lovely as a Tree has had.

Beautiful layout and using the mosaic punch for the compass is the best tip ever!!

Paula Wright

This is one of the most beautiful card I have ever seen! My granddaughter just joined the Navy. I am so proud of that girl. This card is of her caliber. I would like to copy this card. Is this OK?

Mike, this is a great gorgeous card! One of my favorite stamp sets, I hope it's still around in the new catalog. I love how you used nautical colors with the embossing and the gold card stock. A winner!

Beautiful pictures on the wall!

Oh Mike, this made my heart sing...my husband's birthday is in June...and was a sailor so loved this set from the get go...I love what you used for this design! I am hoping to figure out how to blend this with the new one....thank you for the inspiration....I love seeing your creations and how you choose your ideas from different sets, thank you!


Mike, another beautiful, amazing card with clear directions. This will make a great card for our Coast Guard grand son. Thanks!


This is fantastic, Mike! I love the framed pictures on the wall! Very classy looking.

as I struggle w/male cards, this is a wonderful sample for me & I'm sure, others in the same predicament; thank you, again, for an in-depth tutorial---an enjoyment to read!!

This is a terrific card Mike! I have been following you for a long time now...since before you went to Vienna...and I must say, "You just keep getting better and better!" Thanks so much for the continued inspiration.

I love how you paired the picture frames and combined all the elements. The embossed anchor really makes the whole card pop. Fantastic card.

Jeanne Moss

I love this, Michael! For some reason, I never thought of putting the two frames on the same card! What a duh moment....LOL. They look great with the hardwood background. Love your colors, too!

Debbie Mageed

Such a great masculine card! And I truly love anything nautical. I have these embossing folders and have never used them. You have shown me that it's time to break them out.
