Not All Who Wonder Are Lost

Happy Saturday Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

I had an opportunity to play in my craft room this morning while my men, my hubby and our two sons, were visiting Lowe's for their weekend Little Builder's workshop. I made this Nautical themed card for both Always Playing With Paper, as well as CAS-ology's Nautical themed challenges.

I pulled out a few of my Taylored Expressions and Simon Says Stamp, dies and stamps to create this card. The sentiment, which I love, is from Citrus Twist. The color for the waves were created using the "smooshing technique." A first for me. I will have to practice a little more before I feel comfortable with this technique, but it is also a good thing to try something new =) 

Thank you for stopping by this weekend for a little creative inspiration. See you again soon. 



Card Size: 5x5
Card Supplies: 

Paper: Carta Bella (Soak Up The Sun), AC Shimille (True Stories), TE (Sugar Cube, Earl Grey)
Dies: SSS (Stitched Slopes and Hills, Stitched Circles), TE (Ships Ahoy)
Stamp: TE (Ships Ahoy), Citrus Twist
Accessories: DI (salty ocean, tumbled glass, chipped sapphire), Studio Calico (wooden stars)
