This is the second card that I designed for the Essex stamping group. As I mentioned the other day, I wanted to use the same stamp sets that I used for the South Burlington gathering. Like that meeting, the card featuring the Sailing Home stamps was the less involved card of the evening. The gals did especially like the ribbon that I added on the diagonal of the card. It is one of the In Color ribbons in the Terracotta Tile color.

For this card I used a sample from the Stampin’ Up! catalog as the layout inspiration. I wanted to show the gals that you can use images that you find in the catalog as a starting point for a layout using different stamps that you have on hand. I changed up the colors, but kept the rest of the general layout. I hope that this example will encourage you to take another look at your catalog for some stamping inspiration.
