Adjust Your Sails

The pessimist complains about the wind, the optimist expects it to change, the realist adjusts the sails~Sam Arthur Ward

What a great quote for a nautical card!

After stamping and masking the ship, a stencil and circle template add the background sun.  Two sails were fussy cut and popped up. Afew waves of water and sentiment complete the card.

Just For You

Scrafting weekend with family is so much fun.  It is a time to catch up on what is going on in their families lives, laugh and create.  We also get to use their crafty supply goodies!

This background die adds texture and fun to the background.  A few die cuts dipped in purple oxide and the background square with some green oxide makes a very simple card.

Galaxy

This weekend, the Color Bursts and white paint created this galaxy background.  It amazes me to see the Color Burst in action spreading across the paper.  When you add colors you never know what the finished look will be.

The space ship was colored with Copic markers.

I Do

Something old, something new...that would be this stamp from So Suzy Stamps.  I was so excited to ink it up as my son will be getting married and I had a card exchange that I needed to make cards for.

These cards with the gold inlay and the die cut edge are from Michaels and they add such a formal and elegant base for this card.

Christmas in July

Christmas in July is perfect to use this cute snowman stamp!  I am making some cards to sent off to Send A Smile 4 Kids.  This card is more masculine because I wanted the boys to have a selection to pick from.

The snowman is covered with a sparkle gel pen to add some sparkle!
