Hi everyone! hey, the sentiment on this card works for me and blogging too! hehe I’m still here! I got caught up on a house project and wouldn’t you know, it took longer than I thought! I have a list of those projects. ugh. Sure feels good when you get something accomplished though!
Hang with me today…keep scrolling…3 cards to share with you!
I really love this anchor frame! It’s so intricate and so fun in any color! It’s a new Memory Box die called Sailboat Frame. When you get down to my 3rd card, I used the Sailboat part of the set too.
Here it’s very basic…well all three are pretty basic….adding the kraft color rope frame was genius though. I was stuck at what it needed and bam it hit me. Oh, I’m so thankful when that happens, otherwise something can sit on my desk forever!
I wanted to use the Memory Box Lighthouse Collage die again and thought it went so well with the frame. I used a Memory Box Circle Basics die to cut out the Lighthouse Collage.
The sentiments on all three of my cards today are from the new Memory Box Oceanside Typewriter Sentiments stamp set.
I added the Memory Box Flying Gulls in the background, glued directly to the card. The lighthouse and the circle part of the frame have mounting tape behind them. Nothing under the points/corners.
I actually started with this card, didn’t finish it, made the 3rd card, then made the blue card and finally made it back to this CAS white on navy blue card!
I used the Memory Box Lighthouse Collage die and the wood dock pieces from the Memory Box Beachfront Seagulls die. I love the detail on the wood. I die cut, leave the pieces in the die and rub over the backside of the card-stock with a stylus so the embossing detail from the die is more pronounced. Then I ink it with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending tool. Love that wood detail!
I die cut the panel with the Memory Box Rectangle Basics die, matted it on an A2 size navy blue panel and then on an A2 white card-base.
And here’s #3! I used pattern paper. Rather playful, don’t you think?! This is October Afternoon Seaside 8×8 paper pad. Starlitstudio.net has a few pieces left in the store HERE from the 12 x 12 collection. Otherwise it is discontinued. I’m sure if you’re like me, you have something in your stash that would be fun for something like this! 😀
The Sailboat Frame die set, using all the pieces this time, super cute sailboat, waves and clouds! I love the frame die cut in this red wood paper! I die cut the greenish square mat with the Memory Box Square Basics die set.
I love that you get so many sizes with these Basics Shapes die sets and they work with all the Memory Box dies.
I’ll stop at 3 cards today! eek! lol Hope you had fun scrolling through and if you’re a lighthouse, beach, water person, you’re sure to find tons to love from Memory Box!
Thanks for stopping by!
