There's really nothing else to say about Mondays. They exist. And that's kinda unfortunate.
I've got a two-fer today! Two nautical cards using some new goodies from Paper Smooches and Studio Calico.
The first card was made for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Cool Shades challenge, The CAS-ual Fridays "Stamp on DP" challenge, and the Play Date Cafe #182 color story.
|Stamp on pattern/designer paper|

I used the new Paper Smooches stamp "Wicked Nautical" for this little sailboat card. And the cool paper from Studio Calico "Atlantic" collection already had a pattern with little waves and sailboats on it. Per-fect.
To brighten up the sentiment I double stamped it (first with chalk ink, then Memento ink) and then traced along the bottom of the letters with a white gel pen. I also traced pieces of the stamped waves with white gel pen to give them some pop.
Sailboat card materials: Paper Smooches "Wicked Nautical", Neenah solar white cardstock, Studio Calico "Atlantic" paper pad, BasicGrey "Paper Cottage" paper pad, Memento "Tuxedo Black" ink, Versamagic chalk ink "Aegean Blue", red twine, white gel pen.
I am entering this second card only into the CAS-ual Fridays challenge to stamp on pattern paper. This card also uses Paper Smooches "Wicked Nautical" stamps and Studio Calico "Atlantic" paper pack. The helm is simply heat embossed with this metallic bronze powder to make it stand out from the paper.
Materials: Paper Smooches "Wicked Nautical" and "Surf and Turf", Studio Calico "Atlantic" paper pad, Memento Ink "Rich Cocoa", VersaMark watermark ink, Recollections bronze emboss powder, Neenah Solar White cardstock.
