SNEAK PEEK, Come Sail Away...

My Summer Mini Catalog preorder finally came today!  I couldn't wait to unpack everything.  Then I had to ink up some of those stamps right away and give you a sneak peek!  So I chose a card sketch from this week's sketch challenge at Splitcoast and went right to work!

The main focal piece is done with the Sail Away stamp.  I wanted to keep the image simple and not color it in.  I love the way it just looks like a sketch.  Instead of a sentiment, I used the compass stamp from The Open Sea set.  And, of course, I HAD to use some of that gorgeous new Nautical Expedition DSP.  I even got in some of the new Bakers Twine.

I LOVE the nautical theme in this Mini!  It is perfect for masculine cards which are always more difficult to come up with (at least for me!).  I hope you enjoy this little sneak peek at some of the FABULOUS products from the upcoming Summer Mini.
