You float my boat


I made this card a few months back, but never had a chance to post it on the blog. When Nichole Heady introduced the newest set of Tiny Treats stamps, she showed a card using a very similar layout. I have always really liked the tiny treats stamp sets, but I never really knew how to use them successfully on a card. Yet, her card was perfect! Therefore, I immediately CASED her card, using the various tiny treats sets I had at home. This was one of the cards I made. Three sail boats are stamped on small white circles and then colored with Copic Markers. I stamped the blue Mat Stack #4 die cut with versa mark, to add a small pattern to the background. A light blue double ended banner was added behind the circles. A sentiment from Tiny Treats Valentine was added below the boats in PTI's white ink. Finally, a small 'I love you' sentiment was added at the bottom with a little heart. I hope you enjoy!

Train Tracks

Hi everyone!

I know I haven't posted any cards in a little while. I just finished up my senior year in college and will be graduating next week. I made this card a few weeks ago, but did not get a chance to post it on the blog. I used PTI's new Train Tracks. I die cut the images, colored them with copics and placed them on the card. On the bottom is a piece of light blue gingham paper from Michael's Craft Store. I added a small happy birthday sentiment to go with the birthday presents on the train. Finally, I stamped the smoke image from the set, which really added that perfect finishing touch. I hope you enjoy!
