You Are My Anchor



Screen Shot 2015-12-06 at 9.34.33 PMHello Friends, It’s the weekend and time for our Photo Week at Just Us Girls!  Sharyn is our hostess and she has picked a great photo for us.  I wish my bedroom looked like that photo, looks fresh, clean and inviting!  I wanted to use my Cameo again, so I decided it would be the perfect tool to cut out an Anchor. The sentiments are partly from that Tuesday Morning Love set that I have been raving about, and the word anchor was stamped with some alphabet stamps.  The great chevron background was done with a SU Embossing Folder and my inked up brayer.  I first inked the EF and then wasn’t happy with the results so I just went ahead and inked the card stock some more till I achieved some good results.  Please come see what the Design Team and our two-Guest Designers did with the challenge…you won’t be disappointed!   If your caught in the middle of some of this terrible winter weather…stay safe!

  5. Love both of your cards. Great job with the chevrons. I like how you did the sentiment on the first one.

  6. Two gorgeous cards! Love those stamped chevrons and the colors are awesome!

  7. Both cards are beautiful! I have never tried to ink an embossing folder with my brayer…….definitely going to have to try that. Love how you were inspired!

  8. Both cards are very pretty Nancy! I love the inked embossing folder technique!

  9. These are both fabulous, Nancy … bold, bright and wonderfully graphic! Hugs, Anita 🙂

  10. A two-fer. It’s great when one card inspires another. I haven’t done the embossing folder technique in a while but your’s turned out great. I may have to get out my Cricut to do an anchor.

  11. Yay for you! Two awesome cards. Love how your chevrons turned out, love that technique.

  12. I’m definitely admiring all that chevron loveliness on your beautiful cards!

  13. Super duper chevron cards. Love then both with such great layouts.

  14. Using the embossing folder to make the blue chevron paper was a brilliant idea! The only blue chevron paper I had was that bit of scrap that JUST fit the heart die! I wish I would have thought to use my chevron EF, would have saved me at least an hour riffling through all my papers! LOL! Your cards look amazing!
