Relax….another boat!


I’ve never been in a sailboat so I don’t know if it’s relaxing or not!  I’ve been in several fishing boats and as long as I have a book… it’s relaxing! hehe

This is a Marianne Design Sailboat die, Classic Boats… if you live close to me… the Craft and Hobby Shop in Ottumwa can get it for you!  Online,  check it out HERE.  I embossed it while the cut piece was still in the die…then turned it over and with the ink blending tool I inked it with Distress inks, Brushed Corduroy and Tumbled Glass.  White Distress Stain and white pen on the tips of the waves and torn water card-stock.

The “sun”  so to speak is a stamp from a clear stamp set that Alice made me buy! OK,  she didn’t make me but when she pointed out the potential I grabbed it quick!  I am so glad she did!  It’s called Time Traveler by Tattered Angels… it’s been a couple years but I keep my stamps!  I might need them someday and sure enough… I’m always glad I have them!  There’s that Fiskars wave border punch again!

Linking up to Stretch My Stamps post by Virginia  HERE.  I just used part of the month/date circle stamp and then I used it for a sun instead of what it was meant for!  I love it!

The little seashell is from CC Designs NEW for Summer Sugarplums Beach kit!  LOVE it!  The word “RELAX” is from a CC Designs NEW for June Oh So Beachy Sentiments set… on the inside it says, “it’s your day!”



I’m going to use this for my swap card this afternoon at stamp club.  Glad Carolyn picked this theme because I needed to use this boat stuff!  So guess what… I’m on a boat kick… a couple more to use!  oh no! hahahahaha

I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest and I’ve been making badges for Tilda’s Town Challenges with the polaroid look… very fun!  Have a sailin’ good weekend!

Stamps and Such…

  1. I am so glad that you are using the stamp. If I made you buy it, then I must have it too. I can’t live long enough to use the stuff you made me buy, but I am hanging on to it all anyway!! Love the card!

  2. Gorgeous card! That boat die looks like a fun one to have, also the waves punch. The whole card, including colors, is very relaxing.

  3. Another great card! Sailing is really relaxing as long as you aren’t part of the crew. Grin. I really like these new dies.

  4. BOO HOO !!! I didn’t get this card in the swap today. It is truly a beautiful card. Now, just to find that sailboat and relax !!!

  6. At first I thought…hmm a CAS card from Pam…and the more I looked the more lovely details I saw…not simple at all! Glad your friend twisted your arm on your “sun” stamp…very cool!

  7. Oh My Gosh!!!! I love all the great dies out there now a days. My bank account is screaming right along with me, but for totally different reasons. MY GOODNESS…. WHAT TO DO? LOL
    Great card woman.

  8. Wow, Pam!! I love your partial use of the date/month stamp! Totally perfect and creative for this design! Thanks for linking your card for “How I stretch my Stamps” challenge!
