Sailing Home Stamp Set is the focus of today’s Sunday Sketch SS038 Card. Each Sunday I pick one of my card sketches to create a hand stamped card.
Sketches can be a great way to get your stamping mojo going. You can create your card exactly like the sketch or change it up a bit. Here I replaced the oval with the lighthouse and added an extra layer.
The patterned papers are from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. This paper can be used to create either feminine or masculine cards. Each sheet has photographic images of wood, tile, stone, and other elements giving you the ability to add great visual textures and interest to your cards.
