Nautical Encouragement for Two Paper Divas + Big Sale!

The August release is still in full swing at Two Paper Divas Stamps and to top it off, they're having a big sale, to boot!  Check out the What's New section to see all 45 stamp sets for Fall, Halloween and Back to School, that are on sale and already marked at the sale price of 30% off the retail price.  Hurry though, the sale only runs until the September release which begins Sept. 6th and 7th.

Today, I'm sharing another card that I've made with the Anchors the Soul stamp set.  This is such an encouraging sentiment for anyone who needs a little lift in their spirits.

To make this card, I stamped my anchor in Memento London Fog ink and dried it quickly with my heat embossing tool, then stamped my sentiment in Ranger Black archival ink and quickly sprinkled with clear embossing powder, tapped off the excess and heated with my embossing tool.  If you have problems with your stamped sentiments not standing out on your projects, give clear embossing powder a try.  It really makes it stand out and gives added dimension,

I like the look of my sentiment on top of the anchor too.  Using a neutral shade for the anchor is key and really, you don't need to do anything else to this pairing.

I wanted to accent my anchor theme so I broke out my pliers and cut a piece of chain to drape across my card, hot glued just under the backside of my frame, then hot glued my buttons from Laura Kelly Designs and Buttons Galore, to pull it all together.   My papers are from the DCWV Hey Sailor collection and the fishnet stenciling is from The Crafters Workshop, called "Nautical Chain".
