Life Preserver/Scrappy Tail Crafts

 Hello Friends! Today I wanted to share with you a very easy card you can create using many of the new products from the latest release Set Sail!


So every time I think of sailing or nautical themes I think of white and blue horizontal stripes, for my card today I created a background using white and blue stripes on a kraft cardstock and my focal point is the super amazing A7 Life Preserver die, as you can see even though this dies are for A7 cards you can also use them on A2 cards.  

I love this new dies because of the details but they are also easy assemble.  I then stamped inside the Life Preserver one of the amazing sentiments included in the stamp set Guiding Light, I finally added some gems and this card is done!  Such a fun card to create again great masculine card but also for many other occasions! Thank you for stopping by today, I hope this inspires you to create with the new release!

Point me in the right direction/Scrappy Tail

Hello Friends! I hope your day is great, today I wanted to share a project I created with my favorite product from the latest Scrappy Tail Crafts Release, the A7 Compass Scroll Craft Metal Die, this new die makes the most realistic compass, you can use it to create masculine cards or just some amazing cards.


For my card today I wanted to create a realistic looking map, I found in my stash some scrapbook paper with nautical theme with this map print so I cut the Old Paper Scroll from it, to give this piece an antique look I used Vintage Photo Oxide ink on the edges.   I then cut the compass and the old fashion feather with gold, teal and black, as I mention before this compass looks so realistic I used 3D foam tape for dimension on some parts.

I adhered the compass to the center of the map and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Guiding Light Stamp set.  I adhered this piece to an embossed piece and then to a black cardbase.  Such a fun card to create! Thank you for stopping by today, I hope this inspires you to create something today!
