What’s happening? How’s your Thursday going? I am so looking forward to the weekend. Tomorrow is my hubby’s 40th birthday and I have some cool birthday activities for he and I and the kids. I love putting together surprises; especially ones where you just KNOW the person is going to love it! I will post pictures throughout the weekend and share with you his day!
Today’s card I created for two challenges. The first one is for Embellish Magazine. The challenge was to create a Nautical Card using the following colors: Red, Navy, Brown, Light Blue. The stamps that I used is from HeroArts, and now that I look at the card, the stamps were all from one set – Precious Baby Boy – CL264. This stamp set is typically used for babies but hey….breaking the rules is so much more fun! LOL! The stamps that I used for the “water” is another HeroArts Woodblock stamp. It’s called Swirl with Flower. I just love using a stamp in a different way other than what you would typically think….yay! I also used HeroArts Envelope Pattern stamp for the clouds. I “free hand” drew the clouds and then cut them out. I used this stamp to add some interest to the clouds. White clouds are cool, but Envelope Pattern Clouds are even COOLER….lol!
Well, that’s about all the stamps that I used to create this card. I am really starting to get intothe “building a scene” when it comes to cards. I am also going to enter this card in the HeroArts Summer Challenge. A boat, on the water, with cool clouds – that just SHOUTS Summer!
I hope you enjoy the rest of your Thursday and thanks so much for stopping by!
