Nautical Celebrate

My second card today was created for the latest Fusion Card Challenge. To create my card I started by adhering some textured navy cardstock from Hobby Lobby onto my white A2 card base and then layered some fun nautical patterned paper from Pink & Main's Beach Bum 6x6 paper pad on top. I added a sliver of the navy cardstock between the two patterned papers to break up the busyness of the papers. I then stamped the boat from Unity Stamp Company's Celebrate stamp set onto some white cardstock using Gina K Design navy ink and fussy cut it out. I stamped the image again and cut the star out and adhered it directly onto the image. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Gina K Design navy and cranberry red inks. I popped the boat image up off of the panel using foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives and adhered it directly above the sentiment. I matted the panel using more of the same navy cardstock and adhered it directly to the card panel following the featured sketch. I love how it turned out. If you like it too be sure to leave a comment and thank you for visiting my blog today! 

Happy Birthday-Coffee And Cards With Celeste And Deb

Hello and welcome to another Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb collaboration. This month Deb picked this beautiful inspiration photo. Isn't it gorgeous? To create my card I started by layering some pretty patterned paper from the Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful 6x6 paper pad onto my white A2 card base. I then die cut the scalloped stitched edge rectangle using a Gina Marie Designs die. I stamped the beautiful floral images from the Stampers Anonymous Flower Garden stamp set directly onto the panel and colored them to match the inspiration photo using my alcohol markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Reverse Confetti's Beautiful Banners stamp set at the bottom right using Versafine onyx black ink. For a little added embellishment I added the dots from the Stampendous Sunny Flowers stamp set all around the flowers using Stampin' Up's sahara sand ink and a little clear Wink of Stella to the flowers. 
As for my coffee selection I opted for a big cup of Seattle's Best French Roast coffee with a little white chocolate mocha creamer mixed in.  
Now pop on over to Deb's blog and see what fun and gorgeous project she whipped up for our collaboration today!
