TST #111

It's Tuesday and time once again for Try Stampin on Tuesday.  Mynnette has come up once again with a fabulous sketch challenge for us.
I had a lot of fun while in Florida picking up new supplies and on todays card I get to play with one of the Spellbinder dies that I picked up "Labels Thirteen".  Even managed to pick it up on Clearance...bonus!
This card had a home before it was even started.  You see it was made for Rob, my Daughters Boyfriend.

There was actually a mistake made with the sentiment, but the mistake ended up to be the side that was used.  You see I wanted to stamp around the outside of the CS and leave the centre free to stamp my greeting, but forgot to put the mast piece down.  I placed the stamp on the CS and before fulling pressing down I realized I had forgot the mask.  I quickly pulled it off but the ink had already started to stamp onto the piece, so I turned it over and tried it again.  This is what I ended up with.
Once I looked at the colours and the way it looked I thought hmmm the mistake actually looked better so I went with that.  I added a little bakers twine and brads to finish off the front.  

I hope you like what I have come up with.  Need a little more inspiration for your card, hop on over to see what our great Design Team have in store for you.

Thanks for stopping by.


Your comments mean a lot to me, so please remember to leave one.


  1. Nancy this card is gorgeous. It is perfect with the mistake & if you hadn't of said anything I would have thought it was meant to be that way. Don't you love mistakes that work.

  2. Your card is fantastic! I love the colours and texture you have used. I also love the way the 'mistake' looks :)

  3. Gorgeous card, the colors are wonderful (blue and brown - my favorite!) and the dry embossing just stunning!
