Sailing Away

and Hosting and choosing our word 'SEA'  is Nancy.
A Big Welcome to our April Guest - Laurie Unger

I decided to go all at SEA for my card.
Now you don't see much but that boat
wouldn't be there if there wasn't any
and the map surrounded by it - right!

A pretty simple card - a bit male-ish
which is good 'cause we all need to do them from time to time.
My ship is by Prima Marketing and framed with
Spellbinder Dies. The DP is from SU Going Places
stamped on to cotton trim. Added some brads to the frame.
That's it!
Pop over to Our Blog to check out
how our  April Guest Laurie 
and the Team chose to use the Word SEA.
Thanks for dropping in. Love reading your comments.

#400 Cupcake Celebrations

There are 400 Reasons to Celebrate at
and the Reason for this is they are celebrating their
Congratulations on achieving such a Huge Milestone

I chose this Challenge as my Inspiration
using products by 
as they are one of the Sponsors 
and as part of the STAMPloration Team as a Guest Designer.

I am a little disappointed that my daisies look to be
overpowered by the DP I used for the pocket. IRL they are darker.
I started with choosing black card stock as my base
then got out my supplies.
I have used ARTplorations Plaid Maker and
STAMPlorations Vignette Chevron & Arrows
 as  my background inked with Memento New Sprout/Dandelion
My daisies are STAMPlorations Pocket Bloom/Die
and inked with Tom Bow Markers.
I cut my Happy from CUTplorations Happy
using DP from Kaisercraft Art of Life
which was also used for the pocket and
the strip on the side.
The Birthday sentiment is also from the
Chevron & Arrows stamp set.
Finished off with some spritzing in black.

Thanks so much for dropping in.
I hope you will go over to the
Cupcake Inspiration Blog and
join in their 400th Birthday Celebrations.
