Sail Away with Me

Hi, everyone! I've been on a roll this week using the Ahoy Me Hearty stamp set from Paper Smooches. Here's a nautical-themed card for someone special.


I blended on cracked pistachio, peacock feather, and chipped sapphire distress inks after heat embossing the ship from the stamp set in liquid platinum.

Yo Matey

Hi, everyone! Today, I have a fun pirate-themed birthday card to share using the Ahoy Me Hearty stamp set from Paper Smooches. Summer makes me think of pirates because one summer when I was getting my PADI open water diver certification, I did a shipwreck dive off the coast of the Outer Banks in North Carolina. If I remember correctly, we were not too far from Captain Blackbeard's sunken ship. 


I randomly stamped several of the smaller images from the stamp set and colored them with Copics before adding that panel to a black card base. I heat embossed the sentiment with Versamark ink and white embossing powder before adding some black/white twine.

Here's another close-up:


Argh, matey! Thanks for stopping by!!

Summer Fun - AKA Flip Flop Season

Hi, everyone! Today we are kicking off a new challenge over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog - this time, we want you to woo us with Summer Fun themed projects - so get out your flip flops and let's get crafty!

Summer has finally arrived here in Virginia and with a vengeance -- we're talking 106+ degrees F lately with the heat index. For my make, Molly Swims is headed straight to the beach with her flip flops and floatie.  



I couldn't resist using some bright Mama Elephant pigment inks on this card. Double stamping the flip-flop sentiment with my Misti made it really easy to get bold, bright coverage.
