CCMC151 Thank You

Hi Stampers! 

I created this card for this week’s 
Create with Connie and Mary #CCMC151 
Sketch challenge (see   

The Design Team samples are fabulous as always and the other submissions provide so much inspiration- I love their weekly challenges! 

To create this card:

Use the Embossing Buddy to de-static a piece of Whisper White.  Stamp the anchor, compass, globe and ship image from the new set, The Open Sea with Versamark ink and heat emboss with Clear EP.

Use Sponge Daubers with Soft Suede and Early Espresso Ink to fill in the images and with wipe with a damp paper towel to reveal the embossing.

Hand trim around the globe and anchor image and use circle punches to punch out the ship and compass images along with corresponding layers from Early Espresso cardstock.
Use the Big Shot with the Square Lattice EF to emboss a piece of the Nautical Expedition DSP and lightly sand with the Sanding Block to distress the paper.  

Tie a few knots in the Natural Hemp Twine and layer the pieces onto a piece of Whisper White (sponge the edges with Soft Suede to “antique”).

Attach the anchor and sentiment (also embossed and sponged) with Vintage Trinkets and mount the entire card front onto Early Espresso cardstock.

Stamp Sets: The Open Sea, Short and Sweet
Ink:  Versamark, Soft Suede and Early Espresso
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Early Espresso, Nautical Expedition DSP
Accessories: Big Shot, Square Lattice EF­­­, Decorative XL Label Punch, 2 ½” XL Circle Punch, 1 ¼” and 1 3/8” Circle Punches, Sponge Daubers, Embossing Buddy, Heat Gun, Clear EP, Natural Hemp Twine, Vintage Trinkets
