Anchor’s Aweigh for Stampin’ Up! Adventure Awaits

Stampin up stampinup pretty mary fish adventure awaits 1

A bold message and simple shapes are the foundation of today’s card along with design inspiration from this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO393).



  • Anchors Aweigh!  The little anchor on the “Never Made” sentiment (Stampin’ Up! Adventure Awaits Photopolymer stamp set) is perfect to play off the anchors on the Maritime Designer Series Paper.

  • To get a clean image of this large photopolymer stamp (Adventure Awaits), I put a Stampin’ Pierce Mat below my card stock for a hint of cushion.
  • Thick cotton twine feels very “sea worthy” to me.  It’s part of the Painted Blooms Cotton Twine collection from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog.

  • A trio of Real Red Candy Dots add balance and a pop of color against the Night of Navy Card Stock.
  • Hover and Pin it! Here’s a photo showing key products for today’s card that you can save or pin to Pinterest. See ALL my product photos in one spot on my How to Make Simple Cards board on Pinterest.





IN CASE THE LIGHTS GO OUT . . . I’m transitioning my blog from a Typepad blogging platform to WordPress tomorrow.  A lot will be happening behind the scenes but you shouldn’t feel a thing or need to do anything differently.  There will be a brief period where my blog is inaccessible because www.stampinpretty.com is being redirected to the new blogging platform.  I appreciate your patience and please wish me luck that the technology “gods” are cooperative.  The change will be worth it in the long run so that I’ll have more features and reliability with a WordPress blog.

  1. Thanks Mary, you did it again! A great eye catching and clean, fresh masculine looking (to me) card. I love the red, white and blue reminding us it can be used anytime, not just for patriotic holidays. I will be copying it and hope you don’t mine.


  2. Good luck with your transitioning, Mary. Change can be scary! I’ll look for you “on the other side”. I enjoy looking at your blog and seeing what new and innovative ideas you have to offer. Keep up the good work.

  3. I really like your card! My list has just gotten longer, lol. I like your crisp style and the choice of twine for a rope look. Good luck on the blog move.

  4. You can never go wrong with Red, White & Blue! Love the card and how you used the layout. Good Luck with your blog move. Have a great day.

  5. Thanks so much, Maleta! While I didnt use an envelope liner on this project (yet), the Stampin Up! coordinating Envelope Liners Framelits Dies are my most used set of framelits dies.

  6. I love how you take a variety of products and create such great ideas. I look at the finished products and say “now why didn’t I think of that?”. LOVE!!! And you have my obsessed with how you even do your envelopes. That is my next item for sure.
