New toys and an old favorite!

I finally got some stampin' time - have been wanting to try this idea for over a year and finally got around to it.

Retired Stamp Set: Branch Out
Stamp Set: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Tools: Crop-a-dile, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch
Card Stock: Whisper White, Riding Hood Red, Wild Wasabi
Ink: Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red, Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green, Wild Wasabi Embellishments: Large Eyelet, Linen Thread

And this is using some of my new products - available in the summer mini. One of the great things about being a demonstrator is getting to order new products before they are available to everyone else!
Stamp Set: Sail Away (from the summer mini catalog)
Card Stock: Night of Navy, Riding Hood Red, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Bashful Blue
Embellishment: Baker's Twine (from the summer mini catalog)

Another using the same colors and stamp set. This also uses Early Espresso ink nad some retired buttons that I had. I wanted the buttons to be raised so I could wrap the twine under them so I put in some large brads and then used a mini glue dot to adhere the button to the brad. It worked well.

And a little different color scheme.
Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Brocade Blue
Buttons: Retired

I love the Sail Away stamp! I will be making more of these for birthdays, get well, retirement - the possibilities are endless !

The first sailboat card really rocks! Love the twine and the sentiment really pops.

Love them all!

Thanks Jane. The Father's Day ones are already boxed up for OWH but I am going to duplicate them for birthdays and get well for my personal use too. I just love the Baker's twine - and you get 25 yards of it - so I can make lots of cards :-)
