I’m working on creating a number of samples from our new Seasonal Expressions and “You keep me afloat” was inspired by the Stamp Ink Paper sketch challenge:
I skipped adding the scallop part of the sketch because I put the boat there. When I played around with the scallop and the boat, I felt like it was too much. I created a pattern on the white circle with a fun technique using ink and an embossing folder (‘ll blog on later).
I used the new Regatta papers and colors and the stamp set, C1642 My Anchor with the matching dies!
I love having matching dies for the stamp sets. Quick and easy. I created the card in Design Space and had the pennants and circle cut out from the Cricut. I used white shimmer trim for the third pennant.
Wrapped it up with a bow of silver cord attached to the paper boat. I also stamped the inside of the card:
This will make a great card for my husband as he is a sailor and he does keep me afloat! Thanks for stopping by!
