You float my boat


Hi!

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!

  6. This is really cute. I like the color palette you have used and like you I have never been sure how to use the smaller stamps, but after seeing yours I will come out of my comfort zone and try them. Great job!
