Tattered Lace - Sailing Ship and Anchor Dies

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? I have been catching up on my crafting with a vengeance it is good to be crafting again. I do enjoy my days out as well, it looks like we will be busy at the weekend again.

I thought this would be my last post as part of the Tattered Lace television sample making team. They have been having a Design Team call and I decided not to reapply. I was quite surprised to get two lots of dies in the post yesterday. Then I noticed on Facebook that the Design Team call has been extended until the end of April so it will be a while before the new team are up and running. I might even get some more dies to work with in the mean time.


Here are all the samples I sent in: three cards, two gift bags and a tag. 


This is the first card I made a very simple one. I had lots of the netting background left over after the wedding and it came in very handy. I am rather used to making things with a nautical theme. 


The anchor looked good cut four times. It was quite easy to cut the rope separately to paper piece it. 


I was rather taken with the ship and I enjoyed making the little scene through the porthole. I want to make a card like this for my Father-in-Law I think he will like it a lot. 


I used brushes inks and masks to make the sea, sky and sun. 


I decided to make some gift bags you can see the netting background again. I really do have a lot left over. 


This gift bag was the only thing that was clear to see on the television. Some of my other samples were there on the counter but they weren't really shown. 


The anchor made a good decoration for another gift bag. 


I used the Tattered Lace Pierced Tag set to create the tag. I would have made one with the ship on but it didn't fit. 


I did enjoy making these cards. They may not have had much time on the television but there is a Tattered Lace Pinterest board called the Men's Collection where they can be seen. 

I must get on with my next set of samples it is a good job that I am up to date with my other makes.

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
