Stamping 411 Reveal

Wow…that was a tough contest, wasn't it?  The Stamping 411 Operators really changed things up.  I thought I had a pretty good handle on whose card was whose…ended up that I only had THREE right!  Not even the one that I had posted on MY blog!  lol!  Oh well!


So…HERE is the card that I posted last Friday…did you guess right?  If you guessed GRETCHEN…you would be correct!  I didn't…I thought for sure it was Kerin's card! 


Anyway…here is MINE:



Since the Stampin' Up! Alaska cruise I'm taking in a few weeks has been on my mind lately, I thought of doing a "port hole" for my nautical card!  Stampin' Up! has a wonderful new set called, The Open Seas, in the Summer Mini.  I stamped the anchor from this set in Cherry Cobbler on Sahara Sand and punched with the 1 3/4 Circle punch.  Then I punched the 2 1/2 Circle from Early Espresso.  I measured top to bottom and side to side and pierced holes for the Vintage Brads to go around the circle. 


The base of the card is Sahara Sand and I textured the front with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder.  I placed a section of the Nautical Expedition Designer Paper (anchor print) on the front and the coordinating stripe print across the top.  I used the Curly Label punch and made a row of scallops along the bottom, and placed one for the greeting above the Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine that was wrapped around three times.  The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and stamped in Early Espresso Classic Ink.


I had a lot of fun making my card.  I hope you all had lots of fun playing along with the Operators this week!  If you want to see whose cards were whose, you can see them all over on Stamping 411.


And…the winner of my Blog Candy is…………………

A very fun idea putting in the port hole…too bad we don't have a smaller stamp for the ships….but love this card and thanks for sharing and giving us more inspiration to think out of the box more often!
