Another Wednesday Challenge and Add a Little Dazzle/Neat and Tangled Blog Hop Day 3

Hi Everyone!

November is flying by and Thanksgiving is next week!  And we are back again with another Wednesday challenge at Add a Little Dazzle.  We are in the middle of our week long blog hop, sharing inspiration with the fun, unique stamps from Neat and Tangled. So let's get started with today's hop- make sure to leave some love to be entered for a chance at one of two packs up for grabs!

 This stamp, Anchors Away, was one I just HAD to have!  I love everything about it!  Could not wait to emboss this! 

I used my Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Wave dies along with the Inlaid Die technique to add my 'ocean' border to the sentiment; I used Baby Blue and Midnight Blue Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets. I die cut the Baby Blue Craft Metal first and inlaid it, using some washi tape on the backside to keep it in place.  Next, I placed the wave die below the first wave, overlapping it some with the Baby Blue wave die cut.  This allowed my to inlay the Midnight Blue Craft Metal die cut.  The entire 'wave' panel was edged with Glimmering Gold Craft Metal Sheet. I masked off the bottom of the sentiment and heat embossed the upper words, 'Hope anchors' with gold ep. 
The rest of the image was stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock and heat embossed with gold ep.

Be sure to visit each of the designers on this blog hop!
