I finally had a chance to ink up the SAIL AWAY stamp which will be available May 1st in the Summer Mini Catalog. I LOVE this stamp. It is a single stamp for only $11.95. To me it has so many possibilities. Great for a masculine card, sympathy, thinking of you.....whatever!

I made an Easel Card today which qualifies for the OUR CREATIVE CORNER CHALLENGE this week, and I also used today's SKETCH CHALLENGE from Splitcoaststampers.

Here is a close up of the Build A Brads I used. I punched out the little anchors from the Nautical Expedition DSP with my 1/2" Circle Punch and was able to create my own embellishment to match my card. Cool eh? I also used the new Bakers Twine available in the Summer Mini to add some stitching and embellishment to my card.

Here is a side view of the Easel Card.

Here is the closed view of the Easel fits perfectly into a regular envelope....then opens up and displays your card front so nicely. I just followed the TUTORIAL off of Splitcoaststampers.

Stamps: Sail Away, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Ink: Early Expresso
Accessories: 1/2" Circle, 1" Circle, Word Window, Modern Label & Spiral Border Punches, Bakers Twine, Build A Brad, Needle, Paper Piercer, Sponges

What a fabulous card. That is definitely a stunning image and I love all the nautical embellishments you've pulled together here. I especially like the Build-a-Brad with the anchors. Wonderful job on the easel card challenge. So happy you joined in the fun with us this week at Our Creative Corner.
