From Land to Sea …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Just a quick post today to share with you a sweet card that was made with two stamp sets that have returned … and for good reason, they are both very versatile.

The card was created using the “Me = Grateful” and the “From Land to Sea” stamp set.


The greeting was stamped on Vellum Cardstock and then placed over the Lighthouse then the wheel was added.

Some additional color and texture was created by using the “Moroccan” Designer Washi Tape.

A simple card to recreate for any occasion, just change out the greeting. This would make a great Father’s Day Card.

Thank You for stopping by ~

Have a nice day.



Simply Sunday: You’re My Light

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

As promised, I am back with a card share from the “From Land to Sea” stamp set. I think this is a very versatile set, but one look at the lighthouse and I knew I had to have it!

My card was created in honor of Father’s Day even though my own Father has long since passed, I think of a good Dad as a “guiding light” for his children. Just like a lighthouse … they are there to guide us through the foggy or difficult times in our life.


A simple card … illustrating that you don’t need all of the latest gadgets and tricks to create a nice card. I simply stamped my own background with the wheel, did a bit of layering for a dramatic color scheme, and popped up my lighthouse and greeting with dimensionals for “dimension” and texture.

I stamped my lighthouse with the Momento Ink Pad and then colored it with the Real Red marker. My greeting comes from the “Petite Pairs” stamp set.  I thought the “no matter what” worked perfectly for a Father’s Day card.

One little tip … because I used dimensionals on my lighthouse and greeting, I needed to use 3 of them on the right side of my greeting to even it out! Now that’s dimension!! lol


I do have the ingredients for this card listed at the bottom of my post. Just click on any item to learn more about it, or to begin shopping at my on-line store.

Hope you all have a wonderful day, and I wish all you Dad’s out there … the happiest of Father’s Days!

Thanks for sharing a bit of your day with me.




A Gift for Father …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today’s post is a cute project you can use for Father’s Day or for a special gift for a Dad, Son, or brother! However … I’m sure you know a woman that love’s light houses so she would love this gift box too.



This cute project was started with the cute little Take Out Boxes (135827) and stamped with the steering wheel (helm) of the ship from our stamp “From Land to Sea”.  I love this stamp set!

What is the steering wheel of a ship called?

The tag was created using the “Ornate Tag Topper” punch and the lighthouse from the “From Land to Sea” stamp set. The greeting comes from the new “Happy Happenings” stamp set which includes 14 fun greetings!

To finish off the project, the new 5/8″ Striped Cotton Ribbon in Mossy Meadow was used to create the bow.  Coordinated perfectly … don’t you think.


Hope you liked this cute little project as much as I did when I saw it.  Stop back tomorrow and I will share with you a beautiful card I created using the “From Land to Sea” stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by …

Have a happy day!
