Discovery Collage – Card Making

Hi everyone

Thank you to everyone for your comments on my last post.

I had a fun time yesterday morning.  I  got up around 3.30 a.m and everything was quite, internet connection wise, so I took the opportunity to visit some of my blogging friends.
I read your posts, I laughed with you, I cried, was amazed, inspired and entertained.
You know who you are…. thank you all.

This is today’s little card again using the Discovery stamp.

I had so much fun making this card. I assembled all of my stamped elements and scrap paper pieces, keeping to a red, white and blue theme and then just collaged them up as seen.

Just to share:  The * Ship and Navigation Elements stamp set is brilliant for making your own background papers and embellishments.

As I was typing up this post, I had a sudden blast from the past remembering how to Celestial Navigate.  I even have a certificate somewhere to prove it.  lol!  It was only a basic course I might add and all I can say now, is …… thank goodness for GPS!

Crafty Individuals Stamps used:
Voyage of Discovery CI 295
*Ship and Navigation Elements CI 294
Seaside Treasures CI 272

Thank you for looking

Take care,

    Eyes Right, C’tain aboard! Love all those layers, great make. Up at 3.30am? Surprised you managed to keep your eyes open, let alone make a beautiful card! 🙂 x

    I did wonder why your visits were so early in the day… now it all makes sense.
    I liked the blue version and I like this one too. It’s all down to composition and having the right paper in the right place. It would take me hours of toil… xx

    Somehow red & Blue & white are boatcolours to me (and not flagcolours…) You show here that they are in a beautiful way! Hope you have some sunshine today aswel! Hugs, Gerrina

    I love this old sailing ship and you build a card up so beautifully Florence with all the papers and embellishments. This and the last card also using this stamp are fabulous. x
