SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW - PLAYING WITH SOMETHING NOT SU!


Ahoy, Stampers!
     Some time ago, I saw an image similar to this on Sarah G.'s blog at Funky Fossil Design's (UK).  I thought the design was so unique I just had to try something similar with SU! stamps.  FFD, a UK shop, designs and sells mostly stencils.
     I used stamps from three separate SU! sets, one of which is retired:  Wherever You Go (retired), High Tide and Sailing Home, in the new Annual Catalog.  The sailboat and birds in the water drop on both cards, if you want to call it that, is from Sailing Home, the compass, GO sentiment and single bird on the blue card are from Wherever You Go.  On the aqua card, the sentiment is from Sailing Home and the birds at the bottom are from High Tide.
     I used Distress Inks with two stencils: Lightbulb Aperture over Messy Rainbows.

Happy Stampin’!

TIP:  On the vertical card (top), I modified my top layer with the largest Stitched Rectangle Die.  I realigned the sides of the die over what I had just cut and slid it up about 3/4" and just ran that end through the Big Shot again to shorten the rectangle!  It's easy to realign it just by feel - it locks right into the original "stitches," opening up lots more options for these dies.
