Coast to Coast North Caroline meets Basic Gray



Most of you may remember I have been getting ready for an event this weekend.  I have been working on Nautical Cards to sell at a local Oyster Festival.  (The main reason for my short blog posting.)  Here are a couple cards I made the other day using the Retired Coast to Coast Stamp Set.  I made another card using the North Caroline Stamp a few months ago and I was not crazy about the Marine Mist color on the card.  I wanted to recreate a card using this stamp.  I like the way it turned out.  I love the Basic Gray, Soft Sky and Retired Baja Breeze colors together ( I do miss Baja Breeze).  

Thanks for stopping by and letting me know what you think!

By the Tide Pop-Up Gift Card Holder



I have been wanting to make a Pop-Up Gift Card for awhile now.  I saw a video from Jackie Topa, she always has such great ideas.  With the By the Tide stamp still out on my desk,  I pulled out the Baked Brown Sugar, Blushing Bride and Pool Party cardstock and got to work.  I am going to try and make a couple other ones of these maybe a masculine one but for now I am still working on some feminine cards.  This is the first time, I think I used Blushing Bride and Pool Party together and I really like it.

By the Tide - Hello Love


Here's a card that I made using By the Tide Stamp Set.  After making so many masculine cards, I had to change it up a little so I switched to the In-Colors for 2013-2015 (Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Pistachio Pudding).  I love those colors with this stamp set.  The added Crisp Cantaloupe ruffle ribbon and double loop bow, helped give this card the feminine touch I wanted.

Sail Away Craze


Here's another card I made using the Sail Away Stamp Set.  This one is very Masculine Nautical Card.  The colors are Cajun Craze, Marina Mist and Soft Suede.  The piece of Soft Suede I stamped with the Hardwood Stamp using the Early Espresso ink.  I sponged the edges and the piece with Cajun Crazy and Soft Suede ink.  The Cajun Craze helped with the look and reminded me of aged hardwood (The look I wanted to achieve).

Card Redo Sail Away


Last week I was finishing up some leftover card kits, that I neglected to long. This was one of them, it was leftover from this card.  Since I did not have that stamp set or Not Quite Navy Ink pad anymore, I decided to use the Sail Away Stamp and Island Indigo.  I did have to change the card around a little but I like the way it turned out.  I realized I really miss Not Quite Navy and Riding Hood Red after working with them again.  :o(

Retired Sail Away Card


I was using up some of my retired Nautical Paper and made a few of these cards using the Retired Sail Away stamp.  I love this stamp and I almost forgot I had it. The cardbase is Early Espresso with a layer of embossed (Stripes) Sahara Sand, with some retired Early Espresso Ribbon.  I stamped my image with Jet Black Staz On Ink and watercolor using my ink pads and aqua painter. I liked the card fold with this card, I often forgot to use it.

Cased By the Tide Card



Here are a couple cards I made over the weekend, I was inspired and cased this card that I saw on Pinterest.   I just loved the Night of Navy stripes with the Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler. I changed the twine for linen thread and the sayings.  I really liked the way it turned out.

I used By the Tide Stamp Set and the retired Hello Sailor Stamp Set (I was surprised this one did not make it into the main catalog, I love the sayings in this set).

Thanks for stopping by and letting me know what you think.

Thanks,
Karen

Sunflower Clips





Here's a a few Sunflower Clips I made using the Beautiful Bunch Stamp Set, Fun Flower Punch and some clothespins.  These were very easy and quick to put together.  

These are great to use to top off Gift Bags, Gift Baskets and Refrigerator Magnets Clips (if you add a magnet to the back of the pin).

Thanks,
