'Travel' on the High Seas

Hello and Welcome to Saturday's post for
Just Us Girls
Hosting this week's Photo Challenge is Nancy.

I think I only own one teeny weeny stamp
that has boat related images and is from Prima Marketing.
I inked my ship and sentiment with
 VersaFine Clair in Fallen Leaves
on to cream card stock
and touched up with some blue shimmer.
Matted this with SU card stock.
The background DP is also from SU called Going Places.
Punched the squares from a CM punch for effect
and again matted with the blue paper.
Added a strip of DP behind my ship
after colouring the cord to match.
This was slightly popped as is the framed ship.
Card base is cream.
Makes for a nice male card to add to my makes.

Thanks for dropping in.
Don't forget to pop over and see what inspiration
our Guests Cindy and Janet
and the Team took from that great photo.
Come join us in the Gallery.
You could be our next Chic of the Week
and go on to be chosen as our Guest for March.
Till next time - Cherrio from

It's all about the 'LOVE'

There's a Love Hop and Linky Party going on over at
STAMPlorations and I joined in with a few Love Cards
Check out the details Here!

No photo description available.

I started my backgrounds with
Nuvo Shimmer Powder in Catherine Wheel
Hard to believe that both card backgrounds I made
are with the same powder. One has just had more
colour removed. These powders are just like
Brusho's or Magical's. I added water to the
paper then spread the powders.
I used the same ARTplorations Rows of Hearts Stencil
adding dimension with white texture paste.
 I liked how the darker colour seeped through
 the texture pasted stencil on this card.
After all that was dry I inked my new
STAMPlorations All the Love Typografia Romantique 
stamp several times then decided to heat emboss with
Ranger Red Cinnabar. It has a lovely gold mix with it.
Finished this card with a few hearts from the
CUTplorations Clustered Hearts Die
that you will see more of on the card below.
Attached to red card base.
My second card  is only slightly different
as I thought the textured stencil would be
too big for the sentiment.
This is when I decided to get out my
CUTplorations Clustered Hearts Die
I had some spares left over from another project
adding a tiny gold one to the biggest heart.
Sprinkled some gold mica powder over the textured hearts.
The CUTplorations LOVE die was cut three times
from Art Alchemy Metallique Brass painted paper
 and mounted for dimension.
Finished by attaching to pink card base.
There is so much going on with this
Hop and Linky Party and I urge you to
check it all out by hopping along and commenting.
Shery also has a gorgeous free digi you can use -
link up and you could win some of the
over $100's worth of Prizes.
Just check that Link at the top of this post!

These are the products I used. Unfortunately
the LOVE Word die must be out of stock at present
so have added it to one of my cards above.

Now you have seen my makes for this event
and hope you will pop over and see all the other
'Love Themed' creations by my STAMPloration Team Mates.

So hope to see you in our Gallery.
Thanks for dropping in
