Gone Fishing...

Hi everyone! Sharing a layout I did featuring Clear Scraps XL Deco Shape and Crafters Companion Mulberry Wood Gone Fishing. 

Love this photo! DH took it on the ride home from Cabela's, back when they first started fishing. DS was SO excited to get this large bucket of worms. To him it was a bucket of possibilities. 

Here's a closeup of the stamped image. I extended the bank by simply drawing a pen line. Now the stamp fits perfectly with my layout!

Supplies Used:
  • Clear Scraps (XL Deco Shape)
  • Creative Companion (Mulberry Wood Gone Fishing Stamp
  • Spectrum Noir markers: EB1, EB2, CG2, CG3, TB1, IG1, IG3, IG5, EB6, Blender
  • UmWow Chipboard
  • Quick Quotes pattern paper
  • Basic Grey stickers
  • Doodlebug stickers
  • Distress Ink (Salty Ocean)

Honor the Heroes

Today's card is another from the new Crafters Companion set Patriotic Pride. This card was super simple to make. Grab an assortment of your favorite Spectrum Noir markers and simple add stripes of color to create an ombre effect. You can blend the colors out to eliminate the lines, but I kinda liked it so I kept them.

It's sneak peek week at Stampendous! They have some fabulous Halloween stamps coming out...and you know I love Halloween!

I stamped spider webs and bats behind the title. You can draw spider webs in with a black marker/pen.
