Masculine cards can be a challenge, but I've found my 'go to' stamp set that's perfect for the guys in my life! By The Tide is one of my favorite nautical themed Stampin' Up! stamps we have! Especially because of the image that has the anchor and Nantucket Oceanside Inn. It fits perfectly with the 1" Circle Punch. AND there is actually a Nantucket Inn here in Anacortes, WA where we live.
Stampin' Essentials Tips:
- Yep, I trimmed out that little fishy with my Paper Snips and popped him up with Dimensionals. He's popping out of the water and ready to be caught!
- I first stamped him in Midnight Muse ink on Whisper White card stock, then trimmed him out. It only took a minute or so. Quick and easy!
