Paper Pumpkin Possibilities July Blog Hop Sending Good Thoughts

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities July Blog Hop as we showcase the Sending Good Thoughts Kit. Our amazing Design Team members will be sharing their wonderful alternative projects to help inspire you to think outside the box.
One of my favorite things about this kit is the nautical theme, which is so perfect for masculine cards. I decided to create my alternative card design using just the exclusive stamp set from this month's kit. For this design, I chose to use Starry Sky designer series paper for the background and paired it with Soft Suede cardstock. I wanted to keep the design fairly simple, so I heat embossed the image and sentiment with Silver embossing powder to help step up the design and I added some Baker's Twine to add a little texture to the design.

This clean and simple card design is a wonderful example of how you can use the exclusive stamp set to create projects once you have used up the other supplies in this kit. The images and sentiments are perfect for masculine cards as well as all occasion cards. The striped background of the Starry Sky Designer Series Paper adds wonderful texture to the card and helps make the focal image pop. I love the look of the Silver embossing for the ship and the sentiment on the Starry Sky cardstock and I felt it provided enough bling that there was no need for additional embellishments. The Baker's Twine fits in with the nautical theme of this card and just helps to finish off the design.
