TSOT200 and TSSC348


Happy Friday, peeps!  I am gearing up for my first stamp club of the year as well as my hostess appreciation party this weekend!  Love to see my stamping girls!  I have two quick cards to share with you today!  The first is for the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday sketch:

and I used the new Adventure Awaits polymer set.  The images in this set are GINORMOUS!  I guess they are geared for scrapping, but having sailors in the family made me get the set, just for this sentiment alone:

It paired beautifully with the Maritime DSP, which I mounted on a Coastal Cabana card.  I stamped the image twice, once in Night of Navy, then again in Real Red, and cut out the center sentiment:


I added some Night of Navy seam binding and a sailor’s knot with the white Baker’s Twine from the mini catalog as well!  If you’d like a tutorial, my friend Bar has one on her blog HERE.

My other simple card is for the Technostamper sketch for this week:
The SAB Simply Wonderful has a beautiful “congrats” sentiment and I thought it would look nice embossed in gold, with our Gold Foil and Gold Vellum papers:

Here’s a closer peek of the gold embossing:


It was stamped with Gold Encore ink, then embossed with Gold Glory embossing powder!  Such a simple, but elegant look!  Thanks for visiting today!

Earlier this week, before it snowed, Cassidy insisted on taking her dolls for a walk outside:


The wind and the cold finally got the best of her….15 minutes and we were back inside!



  1. Great cards. I really like the congrats one done in gold.
    Cute pics of Cassidy. She sure is getting to be a big girl.

  2. Terrific nautical card and a perfect little sailors knot! Your second card is marvelous, love the shimmer. Yep, after 15 minutes she looks CHILLY!!

  3. Very cute card! Love the sailor's knot!

  4. I love the nautical card. The rope knot detail is just great. I may have to borrow that idea from you. Thanks for joining in the challenge this week at Try Stampin on Tuesday. Hope to see more.

  5. You rocked those new sentiments! And the sailors' knots are perfect!

  6. Oh, I love these papers and they fit perfectly with this nautical stamp set and the use of the Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch. Thanks for joining us this week and I hope you will join us again next week for more sketch fun!

  7. Both of these cards are wonderful. I love the way that set matches the papers in the first one and then one for my sketch is so elegant looking. Just stunning. Love all the gold. Thanks so much for playing along with my sketch challenge this week!

  8. Great card, LeAnne, that is actually the first time I'm seeing that new stamp set, so what a treat! Love your color combo too. Thanks for joining us this week again at Try Stampin' on Tuesday!

  9. Love both of your cards, LeAnne. Your first card is a great masculine card and for the sea lover (my dad, for instance!). :) Your second CAS card SO elegant! Thanks for joining us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.
