She Stood

Hi friends!  How's May treating you?  I can't believe how fast the month is going.  I haven't had a lot of stamping time lately, but I thought I'd pop in and share this quick little CAS card I made for the Verve release but never got posted.

As it happened, right after I sent the designs for this release off to our manufacturer I was moseying around at Tuesday Morning and came across a sailboat punch on clearance.  I just had to pop it into my cart, knowing it would be perfect with the nautical stamps in this release.  For my card I chose to let the Adjusted Sails Plain Jane take front and center, embossed onto cream cardstock.  The sailboat is punched from Down by the Shore designer papers and I added some shading and stripes with markers and pencil. I used a regular pencil to draw the lines at the top of the bottom of my panel, then tied some cording in a sailor's knot (well, as good as I know how to tie one!) and glued down with ZipDry glue.  The panel is mounted on dimensionals on a 4.25" square card base.  Super fast, but I really like how it turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I'll be spending the day with these two little munchkins.  How quickly they have learned to be annoyed by Mama's attempts to get them to smile for the camera.

  17. Julie,

    I love your card. But ... I have been a fan for a number of years now. I'm one of the quiet fans (she smiles). Your CAS cards are as beautifully designed as your more decorative ones, and I love the Verve product and sketches. I'd like to thank you for your recent visit to my card gallery on SCS (paperpunchscissors), what a pleasant surprise. This is the first time I've been to your blog, lucky me because I've gotten a look see at these sweet boys. I'm dare say you're a busy mama!

    Thank you for sharing your talent with all of us.
    Very sincerely,
    Susie Lessard ~
