Guiding Light

Today's card is actually something I made a while ago, but I never posted it on my blog. You might have seen in on Whimsy's Inspirations Facebook page, if you are following it. But since I didn't get time to make a card for this week, I thought I could post this one here, since most of my blog readers never saw it. 

I used the stamp set "Guiding Light" from Whimsy's Raindrop Echo Designs. This is one of the older stamp sets, but so beautiful, and perfect for those hard to make masculine cards.

The blue-ish colored squares were done using dylusions inks, and then I simply stamped the images onto the panels using black ink. As you can see, I only used part of the lighthouse to fit the square. I also used white craft ink to stamp some of the sentiments onto the squares. 
On the white part on the bottom portion, I  used the same set to add a design using kraft colored ink. Simply embellished with some twine to finish it off.


The sentiment is from the set "Simple Everyday Greetings" also from Whimsy's RED.
You can see the complete sets below.

And that would be all for today!
 I will be back with a new project on Friday. 

Stay warm and enjoy the rest of your day. School is cancelled here for the second day due to extreme cold. As much as I actually love snow  (yes, I do, I just hate driving in it), I have to say that these extreme cold temperatures take the fun out of it! But luckily it's supposed to warm up a bit in a couple days :-)

Ah! Yes! A masculine card. Love it and I will definitely be casing this beauty. I started a Masculine Card board on Pinterest and pinned it there. I'm going to start pinning every masculine card I like so I have some ideas when I need one!

I love this Guiding Light stamp set and your card is great. I have a hard time with masculine cards and this one is perfect for that. I like the way you used the Dylusions. It is bitter cold here too. Even our dog, who loves the snow, doesn't want to go out.
