We Are Sailing....

This fun little card is for Friday MashUp's Challenge #114 to use the sketch and the brick wall technique, which I haven't done in ages, for Papertake Weekly's Hello Boys Challenge to make a boy's card and for Inkspirational's Challenge #24 to be inspired by the photo below. I have no lighthouse or boat stamps at all. I have a heap of Stampin' Up sets, a heap of Papertrey Ink sets, a huge heap of others, but not a single boat in any of them (probably as they're just not my thing at all) so I decided to do a punch/die cut boat having been inspired by a photo on Pinterest after doing a Stampin' Up boat search to see if there were any sets I may have hidden away which had a boat in!

And here's my card.


Stamps: Fillable Frames #4 from Papertrey Ink

Papers: Marina Mist, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP all from Stampin' Up

Inks: Soft Sky, Marina Mist, Basic Black all from Stampin' Up

Accessories: Basic Gray Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Pennant Punch, Itty Banner Dies, Scallop Edge Punch all from Stampin' Up, Circle Nestabilities, Oval Nestabilities, Woodgrain Embossing Folder from Cuttlebug, Clouds Dies from Papertrey (as a mask)

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is so cute! There is so much detail here... I love the brick effect behind the clouds and those waves are fabulous! I also love the mismatched sails and the subtle sentiment. What a beautiful card! So glad that you joined us at Inkspirational!
