Hello there! I have a cute card to share with you today. My Aunt had a Birthday on June 2nd, and I needed to make her a card. I had my new supplies waiting for me to use, so out came my FAVORITE new Maritime DSP and the matching Sea Street stamp set. Now, I know that these colors and stamps are not what you expect for a female birthday card, but I knew that I could put enough love into it for it to work.
I cropped my Maritime DSP so that this cute octopus was my focal point of the card, I just love him, and of course, he is holding a sailboat, how sweet.
As you know from previous posts, I am really getting into using vellum. I stamped my Label Love stamp in night of navy, then the anchor in real red. I attached it onto a piece of the Maritime DSP using the coastal cabana bakers twine.
I love all of the patterns in the Maritime DSP, they are just perfect for mixing and matching!
This is by far, one of my favorite new cards that I have made recently. I have been taking a bit of a stamping and blogging break, so it's nice to get back into the craft room.
Two of my favorite challenges are using this color this week, so make sure you play along with both! They would love to have you! Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!

Hello there! I hope you all are enjoying the new catalog! I love the direction that Stampin' Up! is heading, everything is so fun and trendy. This week over at the PALS Paper Arts we have a color challenge for you this week. This color combo is definitely more masculine, so it will be perfect for your Father's Day projects, so grab your provisions, create something fabulous and link it up.
So what do you do when the old catalog just retired, and the new catalog just started, and you have no new ribbon or DSP? Use your paper and ink! I inked the baked brown sugar on my clear block and stamped as my background. I have seen this many, many, times, but it is the first that I tried it. I love the texture it made, so I immediately grabbed my Gorgeous Grunge Stamp set and went with it!
Have you tried the word bubbles framelits and the matching Just Sayin' stamp set yet? I really love them, very hip and trendy! This pacific point word bubble embossed with the chevron embossing folder is my favorite part of the card. Why, you ask? Because it is stamped in gold only on the raised parts, how cool is that? Simply emboss your bubble first, then lightly stamp, super simple, and it turns out great. Genius, I say, why didn't I think of it before?
This is a nice and easy card, just perfect for that man you need to make a card for, you know, the one that is hard to make a card for (ok, maybe you might want to leave off the gold sequins) the one that doesn't like ribbon. Him, this would be perfect for. So grab your colors and just have fun! Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
