I used the ship from Traveler and the splashes stamps from Work Of Art for colour beneath in one (Mint Macaron, Lost Lagoon) and above in the other (Watermelon Wonder, Crushed Curry). The 'Happy Birthday' is in the Guy Greetings set, but I had a script birthday leftover from another project which I decided to also include for a bit of variety. Traveler has some great images for cards for the men in your life, a world globe. antique camera, steam train while Guy Greetings has some spanners and the cute sentiment 'righty-tighty, lefty-loosey' which I am looking forward to using for my plumber son soon.
Next I decided to step the basic card up a notch or two, for my hubby. Guy Greetings has "You're My Anchor" along with the anchor stamp, so paired up with the ship it makes a great theme. After punching a hole in the anchor, I threaded some chunky Natural and Old Olive Two-Tone Trim through and added some banners at the top. That's some of the new Bohemian DSP, my favourite from the new catalogue, and I came home from Convention with a packet too. There are a lot more sentiments in the Guy Greetings set, Happy Father's Day, Congratulations and Grandpa, Uncle, Brother, Dad etc, so you'll be set for most events with this one.
Next blog on the hop is Elizabeth Gross at Lilly Loves Paper. I wonder what gorgeous inspiration Liz has for us this week?
