International Blog Highlights Winners Hop


Well hello and thanks for stopping by!  If this is your first visit, WELCOME.  If you're a repeat reader, thank you for your support.

I have an amazing post lined up for you today.  You may remember that I had participated in the International Blog Highlights with Kylie Bertucci earlier in the month.  I am very blessed to have been recognized as one of the top ten winners and today's post is a hop with the 9 other talented demonstrators from around the world who were also recognized.  So be sure to hop along with everyone when you're done here.

For my project, I decided to use two new stamp sets from the upcoming Annual Catalogue, available June 4th. 



The boat, birds and sentiment are from the Sailing Home stamp set.  I absolutely LOVE this nautical set.  The boat is anchored at sea using our new crumb cake/navy bakers twine and the adorable Sail Away trinkets.  The young boy on dad's shoulders is from the new A Good Man stamp set.  You're going to love this masculine set.  I used stampin blends in crumb cake, balmy blue, night of navy, basic grey, ivory and bronze to colour them in.  I also used the balmy blue and basic grey on the sail boat which I stamped in night of navy.  The waves were created using the Big Shot and Swirly Scribbles Thinlets.  I used the negatives in night of navy to create contrast to the balmy blue and give a sense of motion to the waves.  A little wink of stella on top gives them a shimmer like water.

I hope you enjoyed my project.  Don't forget to check out the other talented Demonstrators in this month's hop.

Happy stampin'!
