For The Love of Joanne and Lighthouses

My good friend Joanne (jojot) is Featured Stamper on SCS today! Congratulations Joanne!! If you think back to our Nova Scotia trip, I got to meet Joanne when we went through Connecticut!

I did 2 cards for the challenge…both of them I think just say “Joanne”.

We share a love of lighthouses and before we ever met face to face or talked on the phone, we discovered we had the same lighthouse in common! Nubble Light is her favorite (click on it to see the pics I took this summer)… she so generously sent me some stamped images after our trip, so I had to make a card! But…first…I made this one.

FS133 Joanne's Travels Joanne’s love of the ocean and travel are the theme for this card. It’s because of Joanne I had to buy this corner punch! She has made some awesome cards with it! Also when we met she gave me this border punch…such a sweetie!

The Impression Obsession image is colored with Copics, masked then airbrushed over a cloud template. The middle layer is from DCWV’s Travel stack and the red layers are all faux’d… white cardstock colored with a Copic.

And what’s an ocean scene without some sand from Mudd Puddles?

I used a card Joanne had sent me along with the lighthouse images for my layout. How ironic that it is the same layout as the card I chose for the one above!

FS133 Treasured Nubble Friendship I flipped it and added my sentiment as another layer.

Colored with Copics and sponged with whatever blue was left on my dauber from a previous card. The sentiment is from Stampabilities.
Pattern paper is from DCWV Latte stack.


I hope you have a wonderful day, thanks for stopping!
