Up, Up & Away...Boats?


I was playing with my PTI "Up, Up & Away" stamps yesterday and discovered that if you just stamp part of the kite stamp it looks like a boat!  What is even cooler about this was that earlier in the day I had cut some felt with the eyelet border die and the leftover piece I had looked like waves.  I wasn't sure what I would do with it, since I don't have boat stamps (that I can think of anyway) but I set it aside for later.  And, amazingly I actually had a use for it that very day!!


Here's a closeup of the "boats".  I stamped the bottoms at the edge of the kraft cardstock and then covered the bottom with the felt.  Doesn't that sunshine impression plate add to the "oceany" feel?


I LOVE finding non-conventional ways to use my stamps!  This just adds one more way to use this already versatile set...oh, and I LOVE those clouds too and find I want to use them in everything. 

Thanks for coming by!  Hope you liked this card!
