Midnight Stamping

DSCF9537

Late at night seems to be the only time I get to stamp anymore!!  And the next day I pay the price!  LOL!  But today is DH’s birthday, and I needed to make him a card, so late at night it was.  Mary Jo the Techno Stamper has a wonderful sketch challenge every Monday, and I don’t get to participate enough, but if she gets 25 participants this week, she’ll have a giveaway! So check it out here!  Her sketch was perfect for the image I wanted to use:

My hubby loves sailing, so this image from Winds of Grace is one I know he’ll like:

I used one of the tags from the Two Tags die for my bottom element and finally got to use some Denim ribbon!!!  I added some knotted twine as some extra interest as well as over-stamping the sailboat with the Woodgrain BG stamp.  I hope he likes it!

And since today is John’s day, I thought I’d share a picture of him instead of Cassidy, along with the other love of his life:

  4. Wow this is wonderful! Love the image - the colors - and how you snuck the two tags die in there! The denim ribbon is very cool - and who knew you could tie such great knots! The only knots I can tie are the ones I do accidentally!

  5. A new use for the 2 Tags die!!! What a clever idea that will be sure to inspire many stampers. Wonderful, wonderful card! I plan to CASE it using supplies I have on hand - the ultimate compliment for a stamper....people want to copy the design because it is so GREAT! You rock!
