Candice's headshot Back in October, we participated in a fabulous Caribbean stamping cruise.  While making preparations for ALL the wonderful goodies we would give away at the event, we knew we wanted to pre-release something special with a nautical theme as a special treat to the cruise-goers!  Candice Aguilar just happened to have something put together that fit the bill perfectly and here we are nine months later officially releasing it to the public!

The details.

  • Out to Sea will become available for purchase on July 15th.
  • It will retail for $24.
  • It includes 11 nautical themed images and 9 coordinating sentiments.

Green & blue color inspiration

You know I'm all about finding great inspiration before starting in on any project.  I found that…

Coastal Living magazine & their website

…really got me going with this set.  All of the photos pertain to the sea and therefore offer both color inspiration and general ideas as to how to showcase this new stamp set at it's best!  This was one of my favorite photos that I ran across.  Isn't it dreamy!  *sigh*  Wish I was there!

Compass Rose card

(click on above image for larger view)

I just LOVED the color combo found in the slipcovers paired with the crisp white furnishings & walls.  I translated that into Papertrey colors, New Leaf & Aqua Mist.  I heat embossed a background created with Polka Dot Basics II onto Aqua Mist cardstock using our Clear Filigree Embossing Powder(It's all Dawn's fault!)  Love the way that turned out!  The grid pattern on the new leaf was created with Journaling Lines set and Versamark ink.

Wave stitched border

The fabulous HUGE compass rose image is from Out to Sea.  The letters representing the different directions are each separate, so you can choose to place them at the ends of the large points or between them, like I did here.  The compass is stamped in Fresh Snow ink directly on top of the grid pattern. 

I added the stitched border to represent waves & the ocean in an abstract kind of way.  I love how it turned out and it accents the sentiment to nicely too.

Happy Birthday Oars card

(click on above image for larger view)

The style of this card is quite a bit different from the first, going a bit more masculine & vintage. The little pennant flags are one of my favorite accents on this piece!  They were SO fun to make!  They were stamped as using many of our popular background sets.  From left to right, I used Let Freedom Ring (striped image), Polka Dot Basics II and Journaling Lines.  Little bits of Enchanted Evening cardstock were added to the tops of each pennant and trimmed with pinking shears. 

I also used the adorable pair of crossed oars from Out to Sea in addition to the stylish nautical stars.

Woodgrain technique

I gave the oars a bit of a special treatment to make them a bit more textural and realistic.  I inked them with Cognac Palette ink and then went over the stamp with a fine tooth comb, LITERALLY!  Just one little swoop is all it takes!  You want to apply a fair amount of pressure so that you scrape off the ink with the comb.

Oars closeup  

Then you just stamp it!  The comb creates almost a woodgrain type of texture.  It's a quick, fun & easy technique that urge you to play around with!  I thought this font combination from Vintage Picnic was the perfect happy birthday sentiment to add as a second layer on top of the oars.  I love when I am able to layer stamps like that!

Star closeup

The nautical-styled stars were cut out and attached the card with foam tape.  It's almost like having a free embellishment to use over and over again instead of brads or buttons.  These little stars just make THE best accents!

Redwhiteblue inspiration

Another inspiration photo, courtesy of Coastal Living.  I loved the bold contrast in this room and thought that it just screamed nautical style.

My Little Sailor card

(click on above image for larger view)

I decided to apply the scheme to a card prefect for a little boy, an area I always struggle in.  I was so happy with the way this turned out!  This little sailor hat and sentiment are from Out to Sea and they work perfectly together for my chosen theme.  The hat was stamped with Enchanted Evening ink and then just a few strokes of Copic Marker T1 were added to create some shadows and shading. I cut out a little snippet of red cardstock to form a bitty flag to adorn the hat.  It also helped to emphasize my rule of threes when it comes to accent colors.

Cross stitch closeup

The sentiment seemed to have the perfect place to add a border stemming from the left side, so I obliged with this pretty little row of cross-stitches done with embroidery floss.  Since I pre-pierced the holes first, it only took a few seconds to complete my stitching.  I just love this little card!  It makes me think of my little Ethan!

Orange & kraft inspiration

This is the next room I used as inspiration (again, courtesy of Coastal Living).  Don't you just love it?
I'm Here For You card  

(click on above image for larger view)

I thought the citrusy orange color would work perfectly with this life preserver image from Candice's set.  I used Kraft & White as my companion colors.  The little life preserver is so easy to cut out using circle punches.

Center of lifesaver

You want to start by punching a 1/2" circle first and then stamping your preserver around it, which is easy to do with clear stamps!  Here I used Orangerie Palette ink.

Punching outside of lifesaver

Then use a 1-3/8" circle punch for the exterior.  Using these two punches gives you a perfectly equal border on the inside and outside of the preserver.

Lifesaver ropes  

The rope/chain image included with the set works perfectly behind the preserver.  The polka dots were added using Polka Dot Basics II with Versamark ink.  I also used my ScorPal above and below the polka dot strip to create an embossed accent line.

Lifesaver closeup

The life preserver was wound with some cotton crochet thread to give the illusion of rope.  I though that the addition of the tiny bow was a nice finishing touch for the project. 

Isn't this set so fresh & fun?  I love getting to stamp with something unique and gets me to exercise my creativity and think outside the box!  I hope you enjoyed my presentation today!  I would love to hear from you in regards to this new set!  Are you an ocean-lover like me?  Do you happen to have the luxury of living near the ocean (I'm so jealous!) ?  If nothing else, did you learn anything new today that you think you will be able to use in the future?

    Titta says:

    I’ve lived my whole life within a few miles of the Baltic Sea. I’m not a “water person”, but I couldn’t really imagine myself living “landlocked” either. I currently live on an island (although it’s sometimes hard to tell that it is indeed an island), and it certainly has its advantages when the weather gets hot.

    These cards are really clever and fresh!

    I love the texture you gave the oars. I will have to add that to my list of techniques. I also love the ocean. I grew up on the Gulf Coast of Florida and now live in Rota, Spain (thanks to the military). We are on the atlantic side. I can see the water from my house and we are only a 30 minute drive to the Mediterranean sea. I cannot imagine living landlocked. Thanks for another fantastic month.

    Josiane says:

    So glad we finally get to see the cruise set! I love that you had tailored it to the cruise with a nautical team.

    I really like the fact that the direction letters for the compass are separate so they can be stamped at the ends of the large points or between them. Love that kind of versatility. I had never thought about that for compasses, but of course you did.

    Thanks for the giveaways!

  • 122

    Oh isn’t this cute! And I love the little sailor sentiment – – little boys are hard to make cards for agreed…..hard to design a card that’s not foofy and also hard to find sentiments to work for them.

    I have to be near water, it’s very calming and I’ve found over the years that lots of sun keeps me happy (literally). I’ve lived in some wonderful places in the northeast and midwest, but I keep coming back to Florida. So, I always have to have the beach and water related sets. I still play with Day at the Beach everyday, and Out to Sea looks wonderful. I really liked the little life preserver with the twine, very cool!

    Karen says:

    It looks like this will pair quite nicely with Men of Life (not to mention countless other PTI sets!)! I do have the luxury of living near an ocean (about fifteen minutes as the crow flies) and love it so. It is always so peaceful to visit and I relax almsot instantly.

    As for the samples you have shown us, I’m loving all of the coordinating stitching!! I love to hand sew on cards (and other paper crafts) and its really great to see it with PTI colors and new sets! :>

  • 484

    That is a great new set!! Love it! I live 1 1/2 hours from the Pacific Ocean and when I was young we spent our family vacation at the beach every year.

    I, too,love the ocean but reside in land-locked central Illinois and Coastal Living magazine is a favorite of mine, also- a girl can dream, right?!?

    Isabel Z says:

    To be honest, when I first saw the sneak peak for this set I breathed a sigh of relief thinking that it wasn’t for me (or at least my wallet did since my PTI wish list is long long long). After reading your post and seeing your lovely creations I am now breathing with anticipation b/c I love what you did with it. I too am an ocean lover and drool over issues of Coastal Living dreaming of owning a beach getaway. I love how the photos inspired you to create the cards that you did. My favorite ones are the Happy Birthday one and the little boy one. The comb technique you used on the oards is brilliant and the little boy card is pleasing to my eye. Now I’m going to get my PTI wish list and add yet another set to this month’s wants. Sigh, they are all so wonderful.

    I wish we lived near water, but that just isn’t the case right now (we’re keeping it in mind for the long-term plan). This set will be so amazing for masculine cards. I have a really hard time with those, so these stamps could be a big help around Father’s Day and birthdays. I love what you did with the comb! It lends such amazing visual texture. And that little hat would be absolutely perfect for baby boy cards, too. What a great set!

  • 550

    This is an awesome set!

    What gorgeous projects! The ocean has always been such an oasis for me, whether it be a place for vacations, retreats, peaceful time away from craziness. To be able to send cards that share glimpses of it with others will be a great thing!
    Today I learned to look to publications for inspiration like catalogs and Coastal living. I also learned how beautifully Pure poppy and Enchanting evening go together. I can’t wait to start using them in projects together. I had been hoping you all would come out with a blue like that!
    Thanks so much!

  • 661
    Anne Andersen says:

    I learned more about your thought process and how you find color schemes in magazines. And I learned about “combing” stamps to create that neat woodgrain texture. I also learned that using my old embroidery skills to add something “special” to my cards is definitely within my reach. I ALWAYS learn something new each release! Thanks so much.

Then I could afford to buy Men of Life to go with it! My budget could use all the help it can get with my long wish list!
    And I must say that I am perfectly enchanted by the new Enchanted Evening color! I’m staying up late tomorrow night to put that color in my cart.

    A convention of pelicans on the Salton Sea and a view of the sea and mountains from the shores of the nearby State Park. Although the resort is isolated, its advantage is that is the only place where you get the winter-time benefits of desert living and also be close to the excellent birding area that is the Salton Sea. Love it Cheryl! You are amazing. Thank you for sharing this with us. New signoff? How about “see you in the sea”? Or, “see you under the sea”?
