SIP #112 Travel Challenge with Gina K Designs My Anchor Stamp Set

Hi Friends!  Happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is off to an awesome start.  Stamp, Ink, Paper has a super fun challenge this week based on a Travel theme!  I hope you'll have a chance to head over and check it out!

I challenged myself this week to make a travel themed card with a current stamp set.  This was a difficult challenge for me because I have a retired stamp set called Traveler that is my go to set for projects like this.  Thankfully I remembered the awesome Gina K Designs Kit that I purchased.  It included an awesome stamp set called "My Anchor".  It has some great sentiments and lovely old truck stamp.  I LOVE old trucks!

This was such an easy card to create.  I started with an 11" x 4 1/4" Basic Black Cardstock base, scored at 5 1/2".  Next I layered a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock that measured 4" x 5 1/4".  My Patterned Paper was some retired DSP from my stash.  I used a 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" piece of the Black Street Map Paper to layer over the Very Vanilla Cardstock layer.  I cut a piece of 2 1/8 " x 3 7/8" piece of Very Vanilla to matt the Crumbcake and Black curvey design paper that measured 2 x 3 7/8".  That left a small border on the top and bottom.   I added three loops of Natural Twine and tied into a bow on the left side of these horizonal layers and adhered them with Foam Tape.  The truck and sentiment from the My Anchor set were stamped on a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx Ink.  I used SU Layering Circle Framelits Dies to cut the stamped piece into a circle.  I layered it on a scrap of Crumb Cake Cardstock that was cut in a scallop and a larger circle of Basic Black cardstock.   

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
