By the Tide-Stampin’ Up!

I'm continuing my quick, daily blog posts sharing projects highlighting the Stampin' Up! Retiring List.  Today, I'm sharing another card using the same 2 stamp sets in the card I featured yesterday:  By the Tide and A Dozen Thoughts.  This is another of the cards we made at my monthly card class (recurs on the First Monday of each month) and I was very much inspired by a similar card by my East Coast Bestie Jen Pitta.  Check out her original card here at–just scroll down a bit and you will see it plus another great card using By the Tide!  Jen is an amazing stamper and scrapper and living on the East Coast, literally…well I think she rocks By the Tide designs:)

On Jen's original card, she used seam binding and tied it in a knot.  I used the twine from the burlap ribbon and tied it into a bow.  Bows or no bows on a masculine card?  Well, my hubby often wears a bow tie, so I would give this to plenty of guys in my life.  But if the bow doesn't fit the gents in your life, just tie a knot instead.  Voila.  You have a truly masculine card!

Okay, it's time for our daily game:  can you spot the retiring items in my card?  I spy with my little eye:

  1. By the Tide stamp set
  2. A Dozen Thoughts stamp set
  3. Lost Lagoon ink
  4. Lost Lagoon card stock
  5. 2-1/2 " Circle Punch
  6. Burlap Ribbon
  7. Bitty Banners Framelit Dies

Thanks so much for popping by!
