Stampin’ Royalty #181 & Deconstructed Sketch #106

Hey Everyone

I’m back for the third time today! I’ve been having a wonderful play in my craft room.

The design team at Stampin’ Royalty have an inspiration picture challenge this week that I found would work well for a masculine card.


I’ve combined the colours from the inspiration pic with this weeks sketch challenge at The Deconstructed Sketch.  Here’s Jen’s fabulous sketch:


I’ve left the bow off from Jen’s sketch but have replaced it with a starfish that I moved slightly to the left.  Because the inspiration pic was very nautical, I’ve used Stampin’ Up!s Sail Away stamp set again.  You may not recognise a couple of the DSPs I’ve used.  I’m pretty happy with myself as I printed them off MDS.  The stripey one in the background is from a designer kit called Number One.  I’ve got no idea what the name of the burlap looking one is as when I went back to find the name of it, I couldn’t find it!  Oh well, it was one that was pre-loaded on MDS when I brought it. I was really chuffed with how they printed and know that if I have more time to look around MDS, I’ll be using it more often. Here’s my card:

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Your a clever girl using mds ,very good idea the twine going around the the sail boat ,nice mans card.

  2. You always make such gorgeous cards. Your details are perfect… the string around the brads; the HB cut out and individually matted, the multiple mats. I like everything about this card (and most of your cards!). TFS!

  3. I agree with all the comments above. You always make gorgeous cards with the perfect papers and embellishments. Love how you did the twine around the image and printed some of the DSP from MDS. It is perfect. TFS

  4. LOVE this…..I wanted to play with that inspiration photo and time just got away from me! Makes me want to go stick my toes in the sand!

  5. I love how you’ve cut the sailboat! It makes the sails look like they’re full of wind and movement! Amazing that those papers came from MDS! I really need to check into that a little closer!
