Inspired by Stamping Pirates Stamp Set - Masculine Card

For my design, I used our July Blog Hop Sketch. Please scroll down to see the sketches and links. Even though I missed the deadline, I still want to give a shout out to the Curtain Call Challenge. I am so excited to see that Stacey has her challenge up and running again. I was such a huge fan and am so happy to see their challenge again!

Inspired by Stamping Summer Postcards Add On - Masculine Card

For my card today, I used the Summer Postcards Add On and Pirates Stamp Sets. I stamped my Pirate ship in light grey and then cut each layer with a Nestie Circle Die.

Inspired by Stamping Masculine Card

I ran to the store this weekend to grab some burlap. After searching and searching, I finally asked the lady at the store. After explaining to her what I wanted, did I learn that burlap in Australia is called heshen. I couldn’t thank the lady at the store enough for having the patience to listen to me try to explain it to her. She was so friendly and kind! A huge thank you!

I found these sea shells there too! Love the addition to my card!

Thank you for stopping by! We hope you have time to join our Blog Hop.

    Fabulous, Joanna!!!! This is fantastic, and captures the essence of your stamps.

    Oh, and next time, ask me about translations from US to Australian – I edited for US publishers, so I know most of the lingo!! LOL
