Hello friends, Today I have three cards for you that go with a nautical inspiration photo at Just Us Girls, where I am the hostess. If you know me, you know I do love nautical inspired cards and when I saw this fun photo over on Pinterest I thought it would be perfect for this time of year. If you don’t want to go the nautical route there are plenty of other directions you could go. For instance; You could just use stripes on your creation, or perhaps you could make a water themed card using a whale, or maybe even a Love you card. I can’t wait to see how you will be inspired if you choose to join me.
Card Details: This style of card will probably look familiar as I have made one similar to these before. I borrowed this fun background stamp and sentiments from a friend and it’s from Avery Elle. Thanks Carol. I masked off the center to leave an oval. Then I cut out my anchor on my Cameo. Last, I added the twine and various greetings. The fun dew drops are from Honey Bee Stamps and I adore them.
I hope I will see you over at JUGS! Take care, Nanc’

I love your nautical theme and that sentiment is so special. My sister called me her rock.

How awe-mazing your trio of anchor/nautical themed cards, Nancy! Love them all!
Living in Alberta, I don’t often see/think about nautical/ocean/sea images, which is partially why few, if any, of those items reside in my collection. The couple I have – a teensy anchor and maybe a fish (?) – wouldn’t have done justice whatsoever with your fabulous photo. Soooo…change of direction for me! That said, I do LOVE red/navy stripes so I’m on the hunt for patterned paper. Yes, I could make my own but I don’t want wonky *grin*

You’d think living at a cottage on a lake would mean I have nautical stamps but no. I base my stamp collection on who I send cards to and for what occasions. I do love the look of your cards, Nancy. The background stamp is perfect with the anchors.
