Smooth Sailling


Happy Friday, everyone! Another weekend is almost upon us! Wow, how time flies! First today, I would like to sincerely thank Sabrina of Scrappin' With Sabrina for gifting me with the Butterfly Award! I am so honored and thankful! I hope you will stop by Sabrina's fabulous blog to see her amazing creations! She is so talented and creative and I just love visiting her and I know you will, too! Thanks again, Sabrina! I appreciate it!!
I have made several boat-themed cards the last few months, but I've never used this cut. The challenge this week at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is "It's A Pirate's Life". The pirate ship is from Wrap it Up and oh my there were so many layers! But it's a pretty cool pirate ship, so I guess it was worth it. I cut the ship at 4" with paper from DCWV. The wavy paper is from Debbie Mumm's Noah's Ark paper pad. I embossed the black paper with the Cuttlebug Swirls embossing folder. The twine is from The Twinery. I added crystals to the top of the post with my iRock -- every good pirate ship needs some bling! The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs Splashtastic Summer set! This is one of my favorites...look at all the awesome sayings:

The colors of your pirate ship are fab! I love the way you set it behind some of the waves of the paper (very clever).

Oh my goodness! You should frame this and hang it on your wall! It's totally a work of art - it reminds me of a ship in a bottle. :) I love the way you set the boat into the waves, and the twine makes it feel so nautical. Such a cool card Lisa!

Great card my sweet friend! You always do a great job:)) I have that paper pad too. Lots of cool paper in it huh! I have this cart but I never tried to cut this ship, maybe I will give it a go. I hope your busy weeks are going smoothly. I am going to wait till you get back in the swing and then I am going to have a giveaway too. I started collecting everything for it. Hugs, Pam

REALLY great card Lisa! Love the entire scene...all the details, it's just amazing!

Scrappin Rabbit Designs said...

Another amazing card! I didn't know that cart had the ship on it. Love the choppy waves under the ship. I agree every Pirate needs some bling on his ship. :) Great Job.

Hey Lisa!

You always do such a fantastic job with the ship inspired cards, I love seeing them! And they always, always remind me of the song "Come Sail Away" by Styx! YAY!

Hope the next few weeks go quick so we can get our Lisa back! ;) But please don't over do it!

Susan

Karen H said...

Wonderful job as always, my crafty friend! :o) I LOVE this scene you created.. your waves look so dimensional, perfectly aided by your brilliance of adhering the ship slightly askew. The twine and bling are naturally fabulous accents. :o) So much to love about all of your work, Lisa! Thanks for making me smile tonight! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
