The Joy Of Sets June Splish Splash Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joy Of Sets June Blog Hop as we showcase our theme "Splish Splash" with projects that have a water theme. You will be visiting blogs from around the world as we share our creative projects to help inspire you. 
 Today's card design showcases a returning favorite paired with some new products from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. The Sailing Home stamp set (item #149457) and coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies (item #149576) are perfect for creating a ocean theme card design and I paired it with the new Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder (item #153200) from the World of Good Suite to create the texture in the background.
 To create this card design, I chose Night of Navy cardstock for the card base and Balmy Blue cardstock for the background layer, which has been embossed with the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. I love how it gives the feeling of waves in the background. The sail boat and sentiment are from the Sailing Home stamp set and I stamped the sail boat image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the sentiment was heat embossed with Silver embossing powder, onto Whisper White cardstock. I used the Layering Circles Dies (item #151770) to die cut the opening for the card front, the frame and the sentiment as well as a large Whisper White cardstock circle to create the sponged background. To create the background, I sponged Balmy Blue, Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo and Seaside Spray Classic inks. I used the new Water Painters (item #151298) to color the sail boat using Balmy Blue and the new Cinnamon Cider Classic inks. This design is great for a masculine card and would be perfect for Father's Day or even a Graduation.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design will help inspire you create your own water themed projects using sponging and embossing to add texture and depth. There are so many wonderful possibilities to explore in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.
