The Open Sea Masculine Birthday Card

To create this look I made a mask using copy paper that I ripped in half and applied with repositionable adhesive to a piece of Naturals Ivory card stock.
I lightly sponged on Night of Navy and Crumb Cake, then stamped the "journal" stamp in Crumb Cake.  Took the mask off and stamped the ship with Night of Navy.  The ship and journal stamps are from the set The Open Sea.  "Birthday greetings is from Wetlands.

I have really been enjoying the stamp set Wetlands.
I used the crayon resist for the lighter marks in the water.  Sponge on Crumb Cake at the bottom of a piece of Whisper White card stock and then Pool Party across the middle.  Stamp birds image with Black StazOn ink.  Add marks with a white crayon where you want on the Pool Party ink around the birds.  I used a brayer to apply Night of Navy across the top and into the middle lightly over the Pool Party color.  Wipe off with a paper towel to reveal the lighter color where the crayon was.
The script stamp is from the By the Sea stamp set.
Also used:
Crumb Cake and Night of Navy card stock
Ovals Collection framelits
Apothecary Accents framelits
Pretty Print embossing folder
Linen Twine

Christmas Gift Bag

Playing with some new Christmas items from the Holiday Catalog!
This gift bag is made using the Tag a Bag Gift Bags that have a white chevron print on them.
I scored at 1 inch in on the three closed sides and created a stand up bag like a lunch sack.
 Made a bow with the Cherry Cobbler 1" Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon and used a cute mini clothespin from the Tag a Bag Accessory Kit.
I did a chalk board look with the stamp O Holy Night.  Just emboss with white embossing powder on black card stock and them rub some white craft ink around for the erased chalk look.
Also added a piece of 1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon.
