Our Captain

Happy Wednesday to all and thanks for taking the time to visit the Sweet 'n Sassy blog.

Mary Marsh here posting for the first time as a design diva for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I am so excited to be a part of this talented team.

The card I want to share with you today uses a sentiment from the new clear stamp set "Let Go, Let God. The set contains 5 sentiments. The one I chose made me think of a ship or boat.  So I went with a nautical theme.

Since I didn't have a boat image I decided to make one with various punches. I used a 1 3/4" round punch for the boat body.  For the sails I used a  1 1/4" square punch and then cut the square in half. I made a similar boat on this card

For my waves I used a slit punch and then I sponged the tops with white ink to make it look like white caps. I used foam squares to give the waves some dimension and allow my  boat to sail in between the waves. The wave idea came from this card.

I found this rainbow patterned paper in my stash and I thought it was perfect for my little scene. God's promise is in the rainbow. He will guide us through any storm.

On that note I will close this post. I hope you like my card. Stop by for a visit tomorrow to see another creation from the SNSS design divas.

I like that paper pieced boat. That sentiment is so right.
