Nautical Adventures

Hello, dear friends! I am fluttering back into this crafty community (consistently!) for good, which I have missed so dearly while balancing health situations. I am delighted that Crafter's Companion is keeping me on for another term and blogging will be a larger part of it this time!

I am celebrating with Sara's newest Signature Collection: Nautical!
This fun collection was on HSN last week! For my first card, I drew and cut sailboat layers the best I could as I have such an affinity for shaped cards of this sort! I used an abundance of goodies from the collection, which I will list below. The papers are beautiful, as are the stamps and dies. The charms are amongst my favorites. Truly this collection is a stunner.
For my second card, I showcased one of the beautiful embossing folders. After embossing the Ship's Anchor with watercolor paper, I inked around the anchor with Harmony Ink Pads in Aqua Blues, after which I added a few splashes of water. To highlight the anchor, I inked over it with Precious Metals Midas Ink Pads. To keep the spotlight on the folder, I simply used the lovely coordinating twine to secure my sentiment.

I had a blast creating with this collection and will certainly be playing with it again soon, as there are so many inspiration goodies in the set! It makes me excited for summer adventures. :) Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful day!
