I love LOBSTER!!!!


What a GREAT masculine card!!!  I know alot of stampers have trouble coming up with cards for the men in their life….it's always been easy for me…so I had to share this one with you!  This stamp set – BY THE TIDE – is a MUST HAVE….great for man cards and women too.  You can also use soft colors for babies cards!!!

I love when I start playing with a new stamp set and creations just come easy.  That's the way I feel about BY THE TIDE.

I used Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Night of Navy for the cardstock & ink. I know the lighting in this photo makes the blue look different – but trust me – it's Night of Navy.  I stamped my lobster dude with Black StazOn and then used an Aqua Painter to color it in with Cherry Cobbler ink…I just squished my ink pad lid and used the ink for that.

Are you loving that little anchor???  It comes on the Happy Whale Clearlits Die (shown below).  Now for the Soda Pop Tops – they are the funnest!!!!  (is that a word?)  You put them in between your cutting plates and open both tabs…just run them right through that big boy (Big Shot) and they look like this:
The bottom of the pop tops are a little concave – so you want to attach them with a Dimensional.  And a little about the Natural Trim – it is a perfect embellishment to accompany the pop tops – just fray the ends and it reminds me of netting!
