Winter 2017 Inspiration Board #2

Enjoy more of our creations from our Winter 2017 Getaway!


Work like a Captain, play like a pirate! I love the Echo Park Designer Dies on this layout. The pirate flag is adorable and was quick and easy to do. The parrot…adorable! Not so easy… There are a lot of pieces to the parrot, but the end result was worth it!

The Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles framelits add just the right touch to this simple card. I had to hold back from adding more fish from the Lawn Fawn Critters in the Sea stamp set. They are all so cute, but I wanted to keep it simple.

It’s hard to tell in the picture, but the anchors are overlapping to close this asymmetrical card. The inside of the card has little anchors covering the paper. I attempted to do glitter embossing for the word thanks, but it didn’t seem to emboss. It was my first time using glitter embossing powder, so maybe I need more practice!

The magic of this card is the inside! I used an entire 12 x 12 sheet of paper with a pirate treasure map for the inside of this card. I used a Turkish map fold. (Look it up on Pinterest or YouTube to try it!) It was tricky with such thick paper, but the end result is so cool! I had fun with more of the Echo Park Designer Dies to make the ship and the dolphin. I wish I had inked the edges of the clouds to give them more depth, but I added the white dashes at the end to finish the look.

You’re a star. (I’m so jelly.) I love this! Perfect for the little star in your life. I just had to add a little Wink of Stella glitter to the starfish. (Seriously, if you haven’t tried Wink of Stella – go get some! It’s so easy to brush on a little touch of glitter and it really makes your project pop!)

Who knew boat anchors could be romantic! This “you are my anchor” sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Float My Boat stamp set is so sweet! Perfect for that person in your life who is your anchor. (Hint for tying the anchor – I tied a piece of the twine to the anchor and then made a little bow to stick on top.)

Next week…more Inspiration Board projects!  🙂
