Today's stamp sets are: Inspired by the Sea; You Lift Me Up Flopsey



Let's jump right in with my Inspired by the Sea card. Ooooo, you're going to love this one. More beautiful, detailed images, true to the Inspired by Line of stamps.  They are fun to color or ink  up in one tone, like I did. 
I actually stamped the beautiful ship twice, once on  the gorgeous Natural Cs (yep, just added this new MFT color card stock to my stash and I love it....you'll bee seeing lots of it) and cut it out with the new DESIGNER LABLE STAX 3 DIE-NAMICS.  Then I stamped it again on the same cardstock, but this time cut it out with a Circle Stax 2 Die-namics. I popped the circle layer up with some foam dimensionals. I love the subtle detail this gives the card, kind of like the "spot- light techinque", but different. 


Then I accented the card with a pretty red button, some natural burlap twine and a sweet anchor from the new SEA CHARMS DIE-NAMICS.  These little Die-namics sets always make the cutest accent to any  card. The whole thing is wrapped up with a pretty Hot Fudge Grosgrain ribbon. 

I couldn't find a good spot for my sentiment, so I decided to add it to the inside. Again, I used the same papers, and colors, but this time I layered my Circle Stax 2 Die-namics, behind the DESIGNER LABELS 3 STAX.  I also decided to use the steering wheel (is there a more sea worthy term for this? Any sailors out there, know?) in stead of the anchor. 



Next up is my oh-so cute Flopsey card. Ack! I am super excited to show this one off. We all konw and love Flopsey, and this month his is carrying a sweet bouquet of balloons. He's called, YOU LIFT ME UP. What I am super giddy about are those giant clouds! How cool are they? They are a new set of Stax Die-namics, called none other than, JUMBO CLOUDS

 I used the largest one as my card base.  I am a sucker for shaped cards.  I ran my top layer through my Vagabond with a Polka Dotted Impression plate and than game a humble attempt to stitch around the out side for that extra detail. 





Then I cut two smaller ones from puff white felt and attached those with some foam dimensionals. Flopsey was stamped on X-press Blending cs, colored with copics and then I pieced up his fun balloons.  I stamped the sentiment onto Grapesicle card stock, and cut it out with to cool new SENTIMENT STRIPS DIE-NAMICS.  You can never have too many options to house your sentiments. 



That cute striped button was tied up with Lilac Twine from the MFT Boutique.

  15. OMGosh! The cloud card is fantastic! You are so clever! I do love the ship card too, it's just so nostalgic - we have big ships that come through here fairly regularly, and we're just down the street from Annapolis, so I love these ships and the nautical dies!
