Stamping by Camp Lanterns with Setting Sail Photopolymer stamps.

My family room, living room and master has been totally gutted so my husband, me and the three boys have been relegated to living in the bedrooms and the kitchen dining room for the last 2 weeks.  People thought I was nuts for wanting to keep having my monthly stamping parties during the renovation but I would not hear of it. 

Well, I got home last night to set up the party to see the big electrician van sitting in my driveway. They were in the midst of relocating my electrical panels and they were not done -
They thought they would be done by sundown but alas no.  Thankfully, Margery again to the rescue, she brought over bunch of battery powered camp lanterns and little task lights from Sheryl and Bonnie saved the day- sort of.  It was  still awfully dim - the poor ladies had a heck of a time scoring and figuring out where they had to fold.  Thank God that I had no heat embossing  on any of the cards that required electricity....
 This was one of the cards we made- a variation on a card I swapped with Julie Beltramo using the Settin' Sail photopolymer stampset.  I used Soft suede base card with Night of Navy, embossed with the Stylish Stripes embossing folder. Stamped the line and the flags using Night of navy, Cherry cobbler, and soft suede as shown.  because you can see through the stamps it was really easy to line up the flags to the line.  A strip of Burlap ribbon adds such great masculine texture. This uses all my circle punches.
 The steering wheel stamped with soft suede onto crumbcake (1" circle punch).  Then the next in 1 1/4" circle punch.  The boat was punched with 1 3/8" circle punch. Navy in 1 3/4" circle punch. and the last crumbcake with the large 2 1/2" circle punch.  I used the markers for the boat.   Only 12 more weeks to go!

Oh my gosh what an adventure! I love this card and I'm sending one to my cousin that had a baby boy. Her hubby is in the navy so it's perfect! Thank you for letting me make an extra one as I'm not sure I could have parted with it.
