Sending Good Thoughts for TSSC315

Today’s card was inspired by the Techno Stampers Challenge #315.  What a great sketch that lends itself to all kinds of cards.

  • A perfect combination – Retro Fresh DSP with its arrows and the sentiment from Perfect Pennants.
  • It is easy to combine paper panels – just flip the DSP over for a complimentary pattern (arrows dsp panel/blue banner panel).
  • Highlighting a word is easy using Stampin’ Up! markers.

Celebrate!

Wow – I cannot believe it’s been so long since I’ve been able to post anything. Between the remodel and my annual scrapbook/stamp party, it has been difficult to get to the computer. Hopefully, I’ll be able to post on a more regular basis now. Here are some photos from my party:

Ahoy

Ahoy there. Living on an island naturally inspires nautical themes so I was thrilled to find the Hello Sailor stamp set in the 2014 Occasions Catalog (spring-mini). I combined images from Hello Sailor and The Open Sea to create a perfect birthday card for my brother – the “Captain” of his own trawler.

Classic nautical colors of Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy, and Crumb Cake reinforce the theme.

Enjoy, and happy stamping!
