How about some more nautical!

The blog hop and release party may be over, but I haven't finished playing with the new nautical release stamps and dies from My Creative Time! I had this idea and had to make it, so I'm sharing it with you now.

I couldn't NOT think of a shaker with this porthole die. And because it's a porthole, it has to look out at sea, and if you're looking out at see you could, by chance, see a whale, right!? I think it turned out very cute. I used metallic gold cardstock with matching gold brads for the frame, and acetate for the front and back so you can see the adorable nautical washi tape behind.

The anchor die is the smaller of two dies on the Anchors and Heart Die set, and the sentiment comes in the Hey, Sailor stamp set.

The whale and the waves come with the Lost at Sea set, which includes the porthole die as well. This was such a fun release, I hope you got this one. It's perfect for summer vacation trips to the beach, a cruise, or a sailboat ride. If you look closely, you can see the tiny anchor and chain, sailboat, fish and seashell made from shrink film. Making them was too much fun! :)
