Sea Worthy

Hi!

Today's cards were made with some fun Stampin Up stamps. The first one uses Crab & Company and Family Phrases. I love how some of the words from Family Phrases fit well on the My Way Arrow punch from SU! The clam is watercolored on craft paper & cut out with a petite circle Nestability. It's a thank you card for a Christmas gift - thus the Santa hat.

The last two cards use Ahoy Matey and the coordinating wheel. I recently found the word stamp "you are my soul matey" at my Local Stamping store and had to pick it up as it works great with this set! I think it's by Memory Box.

The images were stamped on watercolor paper and watercolored with my Aqua Painter and SU Watercolor Crayons. Not a lot of embellishing going on since I was trying to make them masculine and not girly! Just some ribbon strips and crystal brads added to them to finish the cards off.

Have a great rest of your day!

All three of these cards are so fantastic! I really like that first one, the crab with the santa hat, too cute! What size is that card? I love how the circle scallop comes off the edge too. I just LOVE your creations, so ingenious!

These are all so cute! I like how you colored with the WWC...I need to use mine again. The Santa hat on the clam is too cute! When this stamp set first came out I thought it was so cute with the Christmas sentiment and hat and sold a ton because of it. But where I am in NC, people love heading to the beach for the weekend!
Have a great day!
