Welcome to InKing Royalty’s April Blog Hop! As the weather gets warmer, it’s time to start planning our trips to the beach, the lake or the in-town aquarium. Today we’re sharing projects inspired by the ocean and sea – we are excited to share our creations and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

It took me a little while to come up with an idea for this theme.  Finally the Let’s Set Sail Bundle was my inspiration.  And this card took me very much outside of my normal cards.  Hopefully that is a good thing!

Stamps and Punch

All of the stamps used are from the sweet set Let’s Set Sail.  Actually it is a Punch Bundle.  These are my favorites as I love punches.  They are especially great for doing multiples of a card.  Using the Basic Gray for the sail boat was a bit out of my normal range.  But with the sun, based on the boat’s shadow, it would appear that way from a distance.  I will say that it took me a few minutes to figure out which way the sails go. LOL!!  Did I say I am not a sailor?

For the sentiment I also went away from my normal.  It is really far out there.  I love embossed sentiment, but rarely do them.   After seeing the sample card in the catalog with it embossed, I knew I had to do that.  And to go even further, I hand snipped all of the sentiment apart.  This is all one stamp and I turned it into four pieces.  That is so not me!!  But I am thrilled with the different look.

Paper

Sadly I believe the Waves Of The Ocean Designer Series Paper is sold out.  If you are interested please check though.  For this card it was an easy choice to make.  And it led to the other colors.  I mixed Coastal Cabana with Bermuda Bay cardstock and added a bit of Bermuda Bay Ink in the shadow.  Surprisingly the Basic Gray works well with these beachy colors.

Measurements

Coastal Cabana is the card base at 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 folded at 4 1/4, with a thin Basic Gray layer cut to 5 1/4 X 4.  Then the gorgeous DSP is cut 5 1/8 X 3 7/8.  For the focal layers, the Bermuda Bay is cut 2 1/2 X 1 1/8 and the Basic White is cut 2 3/8 X 3.  And the sentiment pieces were stamped on a scrap of Bermuda Bay and then paper snipped apart.  I didn’t even try to keep the lines straight.  Oh My!!
