Float Your Boat Meets Maritime DSP

I've created this card for the Sketch with a Twist Challenge over at MFPSpeedyTV. The sketch is shown above. The twist was to use paper piecing, which is one of my favorite ways to keep things from getting boring.

Stamps: Float My Boat(Lawn Fawn) Ink: Night of Navy. Pool Party, Real Red Paper: Whisper White & Night of Navy CS, Maritime DSP Accessories: Brights Basic Buttons, Real Red Baker's twine from one of the Simply Sent kits, Stampin' Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive, Circles Framelits Dies

I wanted to use my Float My Boat set. The Maritime DSP was a perfect match for it. I stamped the boat using 3 times, twice in Night of Navy, and once in Real Red for the flag. I used Dimensionals to give them a pop. It's simple, but not boring. I managed to use some of my DSP, too! It's always hard for me to keep things clean & simple when using DSP. I think I managed to keep this one clean.

The Maritime Paper will be available starting June 2. In the meantime, a lot of the retiring merchandise is on sale! Now would be a great time to check out the retiring products. They're selling out fast.

Contact me if you don't have a 2014-2015 catalog yet. Thanks for looking. Have a safe and fun weekend!
