SAILING HOME | ONE FOR THE BOYS

THE PAPER PLAYERS - CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE


Hello and welcome to my blog. Today my card is for the latest Paper Players Clean and Simple Challenge! I love clean and simple!
 
 
The Sailing Home Bundle has everything you need to make masculine cards for those men in your life. I've stamped the anchor from the Sailing Home Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay, Night of Navy and Sahara Sand on Whisper White Cardstock to create a clean and simple background.
 

"Happy" has been die cut in Bermuda Bay Cardstock from the Well Written Dies and I've stamped "Birthday" in Bermuda Bay and embossed with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder. A ship's wheel from the Sail Away Trinkets is tied on with the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker's Twine and then unwound a little to give a frayed look!


Here are four Masculine Cards I've created for my upcoming Sailing Home Classes on the 8th and 17th of August. If you'd like to come along to one of my classes please email me at angela.frank00@gmail.com for more information.

It's Friday night here in the South Pacific and after a worrying week with a sick daughter I'm looking forward to putting my feet up, having a cup of tea and relaxing! Tomorrow my youngest daughter is off to her first formal so it will be all about getting her ready - I'll try and sneak in a photograph of her ready to go!!!

Enjoy your weekend!

INK IT! STAMP IT! TECHNIQUE BLOG HOP


Welcome to the Ink It! Stamp It! Blog Hop. This month we are sharing techniques. You may have arrived here from my lovely team member Amy, if you're hopping along already. If you started here, welcome and please make sure to visit all the Design Team's blogs, the full line up below will guide you through all the projects.
 
  
Have you tried the new Shimmery White Embossing Paste? It is gorgeous! I added drops of Pool Party Ink and used the Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper as my mask. I love this effect. The Iris from the Inspiring Iris Stamp Set stamped in Night of Navy and Granny Apple Green sits perfectly on this background.
 
 
I love a great font and equally great sentiments and the ones in this set are so lovely. I stamped this one in Night of Navy and fussy cut it - it's fairly easy you just need to wiggle your snips a bit so there aren't any straight lines!

And as is my "MO", I added a swirl of Silver Metallic Thread under the irises and three Rhinestones that I had coloured using the Dark Night of Navy Stampin' Blends.


I was having so much fun with the Shimmery White Embossing Paste and the Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper, I decided to create some more cards. I made these especially for my customers to go with their orders. I fussy cut the images from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and "thank you" is from the Free as a Bird Stamp Set.

 
You can see the shimmer in these close ups!

 
I added a bow in Linen Thread and sequins from the Woven Threads Assortment on these cards.

 
I used a different Laser-Cut design for these cards. The paper lasts for quite a few times as a mask although it may have lasted longer if I had let it dry between uses.


And these have a bow in Whisper White Baker's Twine just to change it up!

 


Enjoy the rest of the hop - there'll be lots of fabulous inspiration to get you creating!

INK & INSPIRATION | KIDS CARDS


Hello and welcome to this month's Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You are currently visiting Angela Meiritz-Reid from Christchurch, New Zealand. The complete list at the bottom will guide you through all the inspirational projects the team has to share.
 

This month our theme is "Kids Cards" and I've chosen the Animal Outing and Buffalo Check Stamp Sets to create my cards.
 
 
I had so much fun with the sets and layout I decided to make a couple more cards but this time I created my own background. I sponged the ink (Seaside Spray and Rococo Rose) on Shimmery White Cardstock, getting lighter as I moved up the card then flicked water from my Aqua Painter to create the water mark effect.
 
 
I also stamped some leaves in the background, layered the sponged background with Silver Foil and popped some Silver Metallic Thread under the Rhino.


The cute Rhinos have been stamped in Smoky Slate Ink and fussy cut - there are actually co-ordinating Animal Friends Dies which will do this for you!



Thanks for visiting today and be sure to continue on the hop to visit my lovely talented team members to check out their Kids Cards/Crafts.
