It's a new week, so I have a new bundle to share.  It's called Let's Set Sail, and it is a punch bundle.  As much as I love a great die set bundle, it's always fun to get back to the basics of punches.  After all, punches have been around a LOT longer than dies, right?  

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY stamping friends!  Do you remember when it was called Decoration Day?  I like the name Memorial Day better.  It seems more fitting for the meaning and purpose of having this special day of remembrance.

Today, as we remember those that have paid the ultimate price in their service to our country, my mind automatically goes to a Red, White & Blue color theme.

This Let's Set Sail bundle combines my love of punches and my love of all things water. I used the Diorama Dies to highlight a Sunset Scene over the water.  This background was created with Blending Brushes.  These kinds of scenes are so easy and fun to make.  It is an opportunity to let creativity flow.  I used a circle die from Stylish Shapes for my sun.

The Sailboat was stamped with Poppy Parade ink and the sails were simply punched from Basic White cardstock.  To create the illusion of billowing sails I hand drew a few curved lines on the sails with a Glimmery Gel pen.  I used the lines in the stamps as my guide.  You can see similar white lines made by the stamp in the sneak peek image of the envelope in the photo above. 

To make sure the inside of the card did not feel forgotten, I added a quick and easy stamped sailing scene.  The water and sails were stamped with Night of Navy and again the boat was stamped with Poppy Parade.

I hope you liked today's card and are looking forward to seeing more cards made with the Let's Set Sail bundle.
