Bouncing seasons again! So sorry!

I had the Coastal/Maritime stamp set (Inkadinkado) out on my table to use the lighthouse. And realized I never ink up the two palm trees stamp. After I stamped it, I decided it needed a sunset.

Bright Nautical Encouragement Card

lilly sailboat possibilitiesToday’s card was inspired by two Lilly Pulitzer prints – You Gotta Regatta and Out to Sea. Also this post from last year, Repurposed Lilly Pulitzer Postcard .

Geez, and maybe this post, SSS Sail Away by Laura Bassen . I don’t remember how long this background has been on my craft table. I would hate to not give inspirational credit where it is due!

Really, what’s not to like about bright, happy sailboats?

I stamped the sailboat pattern, and then watercolored a bit of Pool Party ink around the boats with an aqua brush.

This is another sentiment from the Simon Says Stamps Uplifting Thoughts stamp set – love it!

Supplies: Stamps – Inkadinkado, Simon Says Stamp, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, inks – Papertrey Ink Fresh Snow, Stampin’ Up! Gable Green (retired), Lovely Lilac (retired), Pink Passion (retired), Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, die – Lawn Fawn, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white, organdy ribbon – Offray.

Seaside Birthday Card

seaside birthday

I stamped this collection of shells a few weeks ago, not really sure what I was going to do with it. Fast forward to last week, and My Favorite Things release preview. What Debbie Olsen did with Kirarina WiNK marker on this card gave me inspiration for my sea shells.

I tore the edge of the Crumb Cake paper (to look a bit like a dune line here on the East coast), and then applied some Kirarina WiNK white to be sea foam.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamps – Inkadinkado, Papertrey Ink, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Night of Navy, Soft Sky, inks – Kirarina WiNK white, Papertrey Ink Fresh Snow, VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Taylored Expressions, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, Ranger Silver Pearl.

Lighthouse Father’s Day Card

Gosh, I am struggling again with masculine cards!  I spent time surfing my favorite stamp stores this morning, and I just don’t see many male themed stamps that work for the men in my life.

Back to a favorite lighthouse!

I stamped and embossed the lighthouse, then blended the ink around it. There is a tiny bit of Glossy Accents on the light portion.

Supplies: Stamps – Clearly Besotted, Inkadinkado, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Papertrey Ink Kraft, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, inks – Copic R29, Y11, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks – Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, VersaFine Onyx Black, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
