I'm showing today one of the cards that my Saturday ladies made in their class yesterday.
The inspiration for this card came from this one by Stamping Shanni.
I used a stamp from a new Stampin' Up set called Traveller. The Australian/New Zealand new catalogue goes live on the 1st July.
The base is Crumb Cake, next layer, Midnight Muse, then Crumb Cake again. I stamped the World Map with Soft Suede onto Very Vanilla twice. The join from stamping twice is under the ship's log piece which has been stamped on Crumb Cake and layered onto Midnight Muse.
To tie in the Cherry Cobbler that I stamped the ship with, I used some mesh that I bought from Sharon at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
The edges of all the layers and the banner have been distressed and inked lightly with Soft Suede.
The rope around the image is from Sharon too. The anchor, which is from The Open Sea, I stamped in Midnight Muse then cut out. Along the rope on the anchor, I glued the frayed string and then threaded it through the hole, knotted it and tucked the end up under the oval.
The banner was die cut and then 'Dare To Dream slightly bent to the curve of the banner and stamped using the stamp-a-ma-jig.
Hemp twine and a button made a wonderful nautical embellishment.
A very fine line of Multi Media Matte around the oval so my knotted rope would stick and a compass charm completed the card.
Hope you have a wonderful day or night as the case may be.
