Handmade lighthouse card designed by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.com with the Stampin' Up! Sailing Home Stamp SetMy mom taught us to love flowers and birds. That’s probably why I believe you simply can’t have too many flower or greeting/sentiment stamp sets. Flower sets work out well for feminine handmade greeting cards but not so much for men. There isn’t anything flowery about the handsome new Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Stamp Set used to make my handmade lighthouse card


How many times was your card done and ready to be mailed but you sit there trying to come up with something to write inside?  Greeting/sentiments stamp sets are on my list to rescue me from sitting and staring blankly. 🙂 I should add masculine stamp sets to the list of can’t have too many also. That’s because stamp sets that are as desirable as Sailing Home aren’t as plentiful. We should grab them up when we find them.

I wanted a white building for my handmade lighthouse card. That was accomplished by stamping with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad ink on Whisper White Cardstock and then colored with Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. That little bit of added color provided shading and made the image look complete.
