Hey there!
For my official Craft Adda post today, I have a nautical themed card for a 60th birthday for a gentleman who likes boats.

This is a smaller card…what I like to call a notelet…
I punched some holes on the side and threaded a bit of coir rope through it, to create interest. 

Supplies used…
The background stamp is 'Bark' from Local King Rubber stamps.
Boat and knot and wheel from Paper Smooches 'Wicked Nautical'.
Die cut numbers from Lawn Fawn
Happy sentiment from Winnie and Walter.

Inks used are from Memento and Tim Holtz.
I used watercolour pencils to colour the boat rand the knot.

I thought it would be interesting to try and make a water themed card…without depicting water!

Would love to hear what you think…
Thanks so much for stopping by…
Have a great day!

Cup inspired!

I made this fun card today, inspired by the cup I was drinking coffee in this morning!

The cup is from the Venetian in Macao and one of my favourites!
After many false starts...I tried to make the stripes by masking, but that didn't quite work out!

So then I used stamps from the  Winnie and Walter Stripes set  and heat embossing powder to recreate the effect from the cup.

The die is from Simon Says Stamp..Always edge.
I had a lot of fun making this card..maybe it will inspire you today?!

Thanks for stopping by…
Have a great evening!

Mother's Day tag

And here is  a quick tag I made for my moths-in-law.
The stamps used are from Stampendous (Orchids) and Simon Says Stamp (Mother's Day) stamp sets. 
I think the sentiment was well shared by all of us!

I am submitting this for the Friday Mashup 'It's all about MOM' challenge and the
Simon Says Stamp 'lets get sentimental' challenge.

Thanks for stopping by…
Have a great day!
