Blog Hop: Step It Up June

I can't believe it is June! Welcome back. Things have gotten even worse for me pertaining to stamping. Total slacker. I have shifted my priorities but I still love creating. I mean, check out my creation without any electronic devices aiding my inspiration. 

I came up with these cards by browsing last years catalog for inspiration and went from there. Since I still don't have anything from the new catalog and I was left with very little current and over-used sets I borrowed a set from a friend. Thanks Angela! You saved me.

The colors are classic nautical and this card makes me want to hit the open sea. I will get back out there eventually. Meanwhile....

As always, thank you for stopping by! To see what the other bloggers stepped up cards look like hop on over to Julie by clicking below:
  • Stamp Brush Sets: High Tide
  • Colors:  Sahara Sand, Dapper Denim, Real Red, Always Artichoke, Soft Suede
  • Embellishments:  Linen Thread
  • Punch: Triple Banner


  1. super cards Julie! I have not played with this set at all since I got it... thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Nice! I like both cards, and the way you sort of filled in the water on the second one gives it so much depth. Thanks for the inspiration :-)

  3. I know how you feel! I only got the In Color ink/cardstock, no stamps yet. I have to use what I have left! Great cards!

  4. I love the nautical colors. They are so bright and crisp. It's amazing how such a small change with the popped up tag makes a big difference. Goes great with the Linen Thread!

  5. I love this set and I really like what you did with it! The watercolory water on the second card is great!


Thank you for your positive thoughts.
