Going, Going, Gone

I'm a little behind in my posting, so today's cards use stamps from the now ended Autumn/Winter mini. Both these masculine stamps are fabulous and so versatile.

Firstly I cased my own card which was a case of someone else's card! Hmm, if you managed to follow that logic, here's Sail Away again:

Materials used:
  • stamps - Sail Away, The Open Sea
  • card - cherry cobbler, very vanilla, crumb cake, night of navy, watercolour
  • other - night of navy striped grosgrain, dimensionals, nestabilities die, aquapainter
That gorgeous ribbon is on the retirement list, so I'll be stocking up on that one!

Next a simple card with plenty of texture and a bit of "grunge". I also put some crystal effects over the coloured portions of the bike to give it that "shiny motorcycle" buzz, lol!

Materials used:
  • stamps - Motorcycle, Sanded 
  • card - not quite navy, very vanilla, crumb cake, soft suede
  • other - crystal effects, square lattice embossing folder, dimensionals
I think the sanded background stamp might be on the retirement list too, so that's another favourite going. Ho hum.

And then, as it's DH's birthday on Friday, I made another Sail Away for him. As you know, he likes bold colours, so I've used my fav red, white and blue nautical theme! Layout inspired by a card by Lesley Annabel.

Materials used:

  • stamps - Sail Away, Best Dad Ever, French Foliage, The Open Sea
  • card - cherry cobbler, whisper white, not quite navy
  • other - white embossing powder and heat tool, cherry cobbler bakers twine, non SU charm, dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by.
