Below are some samples using the sailboat, dolphins, seagulls and sentiments. Next month we'll be showing you the beach stamp samples.
Two great samples from Jilda Bolton!
"We all love this new Sailboat Stamp – thank you Karen Lambert!"
Card #1 – Yellow boat
The background is a Hero Arts background stamp called Waves Background BG.
I colored it with Copics BG32 AND BG45.
I paper pieced the sailboat with the yellow back of the blue chevron paper I used on the
second card. It was in a 6X6 paper pack called Feels Like Home by Little Yellow
Bicycle #FLH-304. I cut a slit in the waves and tucked the sailboat in and glued it down
before I taped the background onto the yellow cardstock. Then I added the sentiment Seas
Card #2 – Blue boat
When I saw this 12X12 paper called Let’s Be Mermaids/Catch the Wave #LBM11005 by
Echo Park, I knew it would be a perfect background for the new sailboat stamp.
I paper pieced the sailboat with the blue chevron paper from a 6X6 paper pack called
Feels Like Home by Little Yellow Bicycle #FLH-304 and popped in onto the Catch the
Wave background. Then I added the sentiment Seas the day.

3M Foam Tape
I stamped the sailboat with the kaleidacolor inkpad, then used my waterbrush
to blend out the colors. I stamped the kaleidacolor and brown inkpads
directly to a laminated piece of cardstock and used those as pallets to add
extra watercolor to my project. With the leftover ink on the laminated
cardstock, I added some more water to individual sections of color and
flicked it off onto my stamped image to add some water splatter. The
sentiment was stamped below the sailboat and I wrapped some twine around the
card base. The main image was mounted to the card with foam tape.
Supplies Used: (Navy card)
Texana Designs Stamps: Sailboat, Seas the day
Bee Paper: Watercolor paper
Bazzill: Navy Cardstock (Stormy Dark)
Momenta: Travel Pattern Paper
Tsukineko: Versafine Inkpad (Onyx Black)
Akashiya Sai: Watercolor markers (Red, Brown, Blue)
I stamped the sailboat with the watercolor markers, then used the water
brush to blend out the colors from the stamped image. I also scribbled the
markers on a clear block, and used the waterbrush to pick up the color to
add a little extra color where needed. Then I took the left over scribbled
watercolor and added more water to it, and flicked it off the edge of the
clear block with the waterbrush to add the splatter to my card. The edge of
the pattern paper was torn to mimic the whitecaps of the waves.
And finally another sample from the Texana Designs Pinterest Board
