Life Saver – MFTWSC215/Color Challenge #15
Oh, the beauty of a federal holiday! I had the day off today, and managed to carve out some wonderful stamping time! I’m finally using a lot of long-neglected stamps and it feel so great!
One of the cards I made today combines the sketch challenge #215 and the color challenge #15 from My Favorite Things…
The circle element in the sketch and the color combo just naturally had me thinking nautical. For my card, I created an embossed circle using my Stitched Circle STAX Die-Namics, then added the life preserver that was die-cut with the Let’s Get Nautical Die-Namics. The life preserver was cut with Sweet Tooth card stock, and Cherry Crisp card stock. My card base is Kraft card stock, and I stamped the left edge with Nightshift Blue hybrid ink with the BG Diagonal Stripes background. I added a Nightshift Blue card stock edge on the Sno Cone card stock panel for contrast, then stamped the background with the anchors from the DC Go Overboard stamp set using Sno Cone hybrid ink. The sentiment is from the same set and was stamped with Nightshift Blue hybrid ink on a strip of vellum which was die-cut with the Blueprints 12 Die-Namics.
On the inside I added a rope accent stamped in Kraft hybrid ink, and the ships wheel stamped in Cherry Crisp hybrid ink, both from the DC Go Overboard stamp set.
I hope your Monday was as enjoyable as mine! And if you’re buried in snow like we are here (but thankfully NOT like they are in the Boston-area!) have faith… Spring is coming! Thanks for stopping by!
