I was lucky enough to win a stamp set from Flourishes and I chose A Guiding Light – I loved all of the cards I saw using this collection and I couldn’t wait to give it a try myself. It’s hard to find great stamps to use for masculine themed cards and I can see so many possibilities with this set!
Stamp: A Guiding Light – Flourishes
Die: Clouds – Memory Box, Classic Oval and Scallop Oval – Spellbinders
Embellishments: Pearls, Ship Charm – My Little Ribbon Shop, Baker’s Twine (yes, I made the sailor’s knot!) I didn’t have the right color of twine so I used a copic marker and colored the twine prior to forming the knot.
Thanks so much for the visit! Dee
Twisted Tuesday – Sailing the Seven Seas with 7 embellishments (5 pearls, 1 charm and baker’s twine)
Crafts and Me – Anything Goes
As You Like It – 3 Favorite Embellishments and why. I have so many favorite embellishments but when I’m making a masculine themed card these are my go-to’s. To me twine is more masculine than ribbon, just as I prefer pearls rather than rhinestones for a male card. As far as the charm – anytime I can sneak one on to a card, it’s a great thing!
