Babymoon Review and an idea for Fathers Day!

Hey all! I'm back from Bath!! Hubby took me away for a short little break and i we had such a lovely time. We stayed in a completely lush hotel/B&B hybrid called Brittons Farm Estates - it was completely 5* and i totally recommend it to anyone who is planning a short break away! The owners (Fred and Helen) are lovely and friendly and the service is top notch (they even deliver your breakfast to you butler style!!) Whilst we was there we visited the Roman Baths, which we found completely fascinating!!

We both returned back from our trip completely relaxed and i still have the rest of the halfterm before i go back to work... and yes, i plan to get some crafting done, as it seems like forever since i had a proper crafty session!!

Today i have a card to share with you that i made some time ago at a crafty session with some fellow Stampin' Up! demos. This card was designed by Fiona and uses a fab set from the new mini catty called 'The Open Sea' which is just perfect for Fathers Day!

Onto a 'Baja Breeze' base we stamped the compass image twice using 'Island Indigo' ink. On a square of 'Island Indigo' card we stamped and re-stamped the globe image several times and then wrapped some of the 'Island Indigo' 'Bakers Twine' around it.

On a piece of 'Whisper White' card we stamped the globe image using 'Island Indigo' ink to create a background and then using 'Rich Razzleberry' ink we stamped the ship image and the anchor. We then used the '1/2" Circle Punch' to shape the corners and then mounted it onto a 'Rich Razzleberry' card which we also edged the corners.

Finally i stamped the happy fathers day sentiment from the 'Teeny Tiny Wishes' set using 'Baja Breeze' ink and then punched out using the 'Word Windown Punch' and finished it off my mounting it onto some 'Baja Breeze' 'DSP' punched using the 'Modern Label Punch'.

Its not too late to order this fab stampset - email over your order today:
