Taylored Expressions January Release: Ships Ahoy

It's Release Day at  Taylored Expressions...WOOT!!!! Now, all the adorable stamp and die combo sets, dies, papers, and other goodies can come live in your stamp room!!!! Have you picked a favorite, yet?? I have several, including the set I used today!! 

The Ships Ahoy Stamp and Die Combo set is sooo cute and perfect for masculine cards!!! My first card features the little sailboat...the sailboats were stamped on Sugar Cube cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black, and cutout with the Ships Ahoy die. They were then paper pieced with papers from the Ahoy There 6x6 paper pad from Carta Bella. 

The frame was cut from the same patterned paper and the waves were created with the negative from the new TE Build a Scene-Clouds dies. The sentiments are from the same set and the button and heavy twine finishes it off.

My second card features the cute little tugboat from the Ships Ahoy Stamp and Die Combo was colored with Copics, cutout with the Ships Ahoy die, and popped up with foam tape. The Salt Water Taffy cardstock was embossed on the top with the new TE Cloudy Days Embossing Folder and the clouds were sponged with white craft ink. The waves were stamped on the bottom half and sewing was done around the edges of the patterned paper layer.

The sentiment is from the same set and was stamped on the previously released Label Stacklets 3 diecut....the twine is the finishing touch. 

Thanks for joining us for our January release week...I hope you found a little inspiration along the way!!! If you would like to see more product information, please head over to the TE Blog for a complete blog roll of our participating designers.

Girl, you make any stamp and die look good. :). Both of these are adorable!

Like how you made the clouds die into water. Both are really cute cards.

LOVE them both!! I love the color schemes. The star paper framing the sailboats (with their starry and polka dotted sails) creates such a charming look. And I love the tugboat sailing across the middle of the card with a few stamped waves below. The twine treatment is really cute!
