2014 Life Verse

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path. Proverbs 3:5-6

Welcome to my blog today.  I hope you enjoy what you see.

The card I have for y'all today uses a set of stamps from The Stamp Man called Aspects of Design 2-Nautical.  This is the first set of stamps I have used by this designer and they leave a really crisp impression.

I don't do alot of manly cards, so sometimes I have a hard time deciding what to do, but not this time.  I knew I had the perfect stamp set for a manly card.

I began with a vanilla card stock base from Colorbok. The base measures 6" x 6".  I added a DP panel from Colorbok and a strip of DP from DCWV My Guy pack.  I stamped the images on GP White card stock  with Memento Espresso Truffle and inked them heavily with DI Vintage Photo.  I matted them onto Chocolate Chip card stock from SU.  I die cut an Olive Green (SU) circle and cut off the bottom portion of it and adhered it over top of the other elements.  I cut out the ship after coloring it with ShinHan Art marker CG 0.5 Cool Grey, Copic YR27 Tuscan Orange and Chromatix Apricot 3.  The sentiment is from Fiskars Make a Wish set and is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.  I added three green buttons from my stash to the patterned strip to finish off the card.

Thanks for looking at my creation.  God Bless y'all.
