A GREAT stamp!!!

Hi there bloggies!

I am going to show you my latest stamp acquisition with this card. It is a single stamp from the latest SU! mini catty … and I resisted for almost 3 months … until I realised that the huge VOID in my male stamp stash would get a much needed boost with this stamp! I have seen so many wonderful cards around using this sail boat. So … I almost missed out … ‘cos it is only available until the end of August!!! But … my first creation was quite satisfying!

A simple design … based on a Clean & Simple sketch (#151). The sails are actually re-stamped onto glossy white cardstock … cut out … and popped up on some dimensionals. I have used my White Gel Pen to add some detail to the black stamp image.

See you all again soon! Hugs xxaxx

    I LOVE your use of the ribbon. Using it as a banner is cool enough but then to have it frayed!…it’s perfect for the card!
    Andrea adds: Hi Kim! Thanks for popping by! So nice to have your lovely comments! Hugs xxaxx

    Fabulous guy card and I love how you folded over the top of that striped ribbon!
    Andrea adds: The fold was inspired by the sketch layout! Sometime … just sometimes I manage to “think outside the square”! Hugs xxaxx
