Mojo Monday 434 – The Open Sea, A Nautical Retirement Card

Hi Everyone!

I just LOVED this sketch and playing along over at Mojo Monday this week! I feel like my creative “Mojo” was flowing with this card! 🙂

Just the elements on this sketch went along perfectly with the stamp set The Open Sea. So here is the Mojo Monday #434 sketch.


I was excited to see that the circles went perfectly with the 1 globe stamp in the set. If you like this set you will LOVE the stamp set called Going Global HERE. It has a similar theme but it comes with some GREAT sentiments and matches so nicely with the Going Places DSP.


I’m loving this new Design Paper Stack, Going Places. It has some great neutral colors like Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Lost Lagoon and Mossy Meadow. For this card I used the “blueprint” style paper in Lost Lagoon. I love the Very Vanilla thick baker’s twine, it looks like rope! I thought it added the perfect embellishment to my nautical themed card. I’m also glad that Teeny Tiny Wishes comes with a Happy Retirement stamp. Can’t believe I used it twice this year already! This is a great set of 26 versatile sentiments! If you don’t own it, I highly recommend it! 🙂

I also stamped some of the images in Tip Top Taupe on the Very Vanilla because I didn’t see any DSP’s with these colors and I wanted a light background. It came out perfectly! Love how Stampin’ Up makes it easy to create our own matching design paper when we need it!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Leave some love 🙂
