Stampin' Addicts Spring Catalog Blog Hop, which features amazing products from the upcoming Spring Catalog, starting January 3. Since the catalog isn't available yet, this is an easy way to get a sneak peek! So let's hop along!
If you have been following the blog hop in order, you have just come from Paula's post
featuring the Pop Up Posies Designer Kit. Paula has some beautiful projects! Didn't she
do a great job with this kit? Today I will show you some projects
using the set By the Tide, a great masculine set.
First I'll show you a card I put together for our Stampin' Addict demo swap. I was trying to incorporate the nautical look with horizontal stripes, both with designer series paper and embossing.
I inked up my background stamp and dabbed off some ink to give it a softer netting look. The Natural Trim ribbon is thin enough to wrap it around the back of the panel layer, but I find it so easy to just tack down by zipping it through the sewing machine.

I thought the fish image, if colored right, could pass for a cold-water fish. So I created a fish card, perfect for your favorite guy! This card could be for a birthday or Father's Day, just fill in a sentiment.
I used the Petite Purse die to create a 2-D vintage fishing bag, and even the fishing pole is a "Huck Finn" type. Huck has caught a smallmouth bass today.

And how about something a little more feminine, or at least less masculine? I was thinking of a project reminiscent of the Florida Keys, perhaps Ernest Hemingway.
I've had a photo jar, complete with a candle and sand, on my stamping to-do list. This set is perfect to create a little ensemble.
