Stampendous Saturday: CAS Nautical Cards

Ready for another challenge with the Stampendous team?  Throughout the month of May we are challenging ourselves (and you) to get a head start on gifts for Mother's Day, end-of-the-year teacher gifts, graduations, and Father's Day by creating gifts, gift sets (could be cards, altered items, etc), gift card holders...anything you can give to someone special!  I'm back today to share another CAS set of cards (two sets actually) that I created for my mom for Mother's Day.  She lives at the beach, and loves all things nautically-related.  When I got this By the Sea stamp, I knew it would be perfect for her.  I kept it super simple - a set of six brown on kraft cards :) 

Hopefully she'll like this mermaid card, too!  I colored her four of them (that was all time would allow - i had to have stuff ready early this year, lol).  I know both sets of cards are one-layer and very simple, but I try to take into account postage and such when making them for other people.  And besides, I had to create lots  of cards this year!

Head over to the Stampendous Impressions blog to see who else is playing along today - a few of my teammates have created some amazing gift ideas to share with you!  And we want YOU to play along with us!  Simply make a gift, gift set (could be cards, could be an altered item), or a gift card holder of some sort and add the direct link for your project to our collection at the end of this post (or on the Stampendous blog) no later than Thursday, May 31 at 11:59 PM EST .  You do not have to use Stampendous products, but we sure love it when you do!  As an extra incentive for playing along, one lucky crafter (drawn at random) will receive this fabulous new Cling Jumbo Tropical Garden stamp set:

Due to shipping restrictions, the winner must have a US address.  We hope you have a chance to play along with us (you an enter as many times as you'd like!) this month...Happy Crafting!
