Les Jungles for Time Out and Case This Sketch

Sailing Home for Atlantic Hearts Challenge # 378

Happy Sunday - again :-)

I was in a clean and simple frame of mind in my craft cave yesterday.  Usually when I play along with the Atlantic Hearts challenges I bring out my DSP, but for this one I decided to go really CAS.

I needed a masculine birthday card and pulled out one of my favorite masculine sets - Sailing Home from Stampin' Up!  I stamped and colored the lighthouse and then die-cut it.  I die-cut a rectangle and used my blending brush with Pool Party ink for the background and stamped some of the seagulls in Smoky Slate.  I mounted the die-cut lighthouse, added a sentiment and mounted the focal layer onto the card base with fun foam.  For the diagonal layers, I used my Ellen Hutson stitched dies and added them on either side of the corner.  Here's my card:

Sailing home (1 of 1)-9

The design team and challenge players have some fabulous inspiration for you.  I hope you will check them out.  I'll be back tomorrow with another card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.

  • Stamps:  Sailing Home - Stampin' Up! Sentiment - My Paper Pumpkin kit - Stampin' Up!

Oh, I love this! The little stitched detail in the corners is a great way to interpret this sketch. The lighthouse is awesome! Thanks for sharing with us at Atlantic Hearts :)

Your coloring, Jaydee, is awesome as always. The lighthouse certainly makes a wonderful masculine card. Enjoy your day!


Thanks, Hilda. I really do love this set and I never seem to color it the same way twice! Hope you have a beautiful Monday

wow! I was just working with a very similar lighthouse last night. Thanks for the ideas. I actually have this set, but chose to use another. But my coloring was awful, I had to pitch it. Yours is perfect! thank you so much for sharing with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge. good luck!
