Yeah, I kinda like the Stampin’ Up! By the Dock Bundle…this time it became an easel card.
I used Seaside Spray for my blue on this card and a bright green Granny Apple Green. I think it really worked with the Night of Navy Frame and the So Saffron sun. Believe me when I tell you I sometimes try a lot of different colors to see which ends up to my liking. Frequently, I change it days later. I first had a Daffodil Delight sun but liked So Saffron better…no rhyme or reason…just liked it better. Do you ever do that?
Well, anyhoo, here’s a video showing how easy it is to make an easel card and some little tips using the Stitched Shapes and Rectangle Dies. Please forgive the shadows at the end of the video when my light went out…thankfully, the bulb was just loose in the socket. I should have just reached up to check it! But then it would have been hot… and I might have burnt myself…and my hands would have been compromised…and maybe I could not stamp for awhile…and we would not want that to happen!
So, what about the boat? Are you Team Crumb Cake or Team Real Red?

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
I prefer the crumb cake boat, but red is okay too. Thanks for sharing.
I like the red boat, especially with the red sentiment showing. Just a nice pop of color!
