The stamp set “Traveler” is one of my favorite masculine stamp set. This is another card that I made with it, using the beautiful boat stamp. I used bright colors “Real Red”, “Pacific Point” and “Night of Navy” as my color scheme. I also used 2 stamps from “Butterfly Basics“, the “New York” circle stamp and the broken line at the bottom. This set has so many pieces and is really versatile! There’s also some ink splatters around the boat to imitate some water splashing, from my favorite “Gorgeous Grunge” stamp set.
In the background, I used the Arrows embossing folder to complete my card.

“Traveler” stamp set is a great masculine stamp set to have in your stamp collection! I made this card for my husband’s birthday. I used the “reflection” method, using the brayer. For this technique, you stamp your image on the card stock. Then re-ink your stamp, but this time, you take the brayer and you roll it on the stamp, to transfer the ink on the brayer. Then, roll the brayer on the cardstock. The image is reversed like magic!
The boat was colored with the blender pen; I added some Real Red and Smoky Slate. I sponged Lost Lagoon ink for the water and Soft Sky ink for the sky. The “Moonlight” DSP stack had the perfect wave design for the background of the card!
Stamp set: Traveler, Exprimez-vous

Ink: Black Memento ink, Lost Lagoon, Real Red, Smoky Slate, Soft Sky, White Signo gel pen

I showed this technique at my last Stamping club night. This technique is great for masculine cards! I used the image from “Wetlands” to make my card. The leather look is achieved by sponging 4 colors on Crumb Cake card stock: Crush Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede and Chocolate Chip. (See instructions below.)
- Crumb Cake card stock, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Mossy Meadow
- Deco Labels Collection Framelits die, Honeycomb embossing folder
- Ink pads and sponge daubers for the following colors: Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip
- Black ink pad
- Stamp “Wetlands” and Hardwood
- Stylus and Stampin’ Pierce Mat (or another foam mat)
Cut the Crumb Cake card stock with the Deco Label Framelit die.
Stamp your image with Black ink. Place the card stock on the Pierce mat and use the stylus to roughly trace the image. This will make like an “embossing” look of the image.
Sponge Crushed Curry ink with the sponge dauber. Sponge Pumpkin Pie ink.
Starting on the edges and fading in, sponge Soft Suede and Chocolate Chip ink.

“The Open Sea” is one of the first stamp set that I bought! It’s been around for quite a while!!! But it’s such a nice and classic set, if you don’t own it, you’ll want it for sure! Over the years, I made many masculine cards with this set. Here’s one that we made at my last class. I like this old parchment look! Simply use Very Vanilla cards stock, tear some bits around the edges and ink with Crumb cake.
I used Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy and Very Vanilla for the colors.
