Today’s share is my second design featuring the Sailing Home Bundle. After creating my Red White Blue Anchors design I wanted to create something in the total opposite direction……from Bold and bright to soft and subtle. My Sailing Home Gold Anchor card is my take on subtle and neutral.
BASE: The base starts with Sahara Sand layered with a Balmy Blue strip embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder. Next a Whisper White rectangle layered with a smaller Striped Come Sail Away Designer Paper rectangle were adhered to the Balmy Blue.
FOCAL: This starts with a slightly smaller Whisper White rectangle generation stamped three times using the swooshy image from Sunshine Saying stamp set (vintage) in Balmy Blue ink. First you stamp the fully inked image at the bottom then two more times (without reinking). That is called generational stamping……very cool!
Next is the shiny golden anchor. I stamped the “Anchor” from the Sailing Home Stamp Set with VersaMark onto Whisper White and then heat embossed with Gold Emboss Powder. Even guys need a little shine in their lives. [giggle] Then I die cut the anchor using the Smooth Sailing Die Set. That’s right……no fussy cutting involved! Sweet!!!
SENTIMENT: Finally is the sentiment. I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut the two circles, the bottom circle is Balmy Blue and the top is Whisper White. Using Crumb Cake ink I stamped the sentiment, also from the Sail Away Stamp Set. There are so many images in this fun nautical themed set to choose from.
I really had fun and enjoyed designing with this stamp set. I hope you enjoyed today’s Sailing Home Gold Anchor share and are inspired to get your hands inky! Have a stampingly wonderful day!
