Recently I joined a Card Swap with some other Australian Demonstrators using products from the 2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. Card swaps are great as you get to see projects with other stamps you may not have or using colours or techniques that you don’t normally see.
I joined in 2 rounds in the swaps so I got LOTS of cards. It meant I created 2 different cards for these but that’s OK. 🙂
I am going to share Round 1 cards today and Round 2 tomorrow. I have included my card swap but I will share more detail of these in a later post.
I’m not posting individual names on these cards but for those who swapped with me – Thank You.
If you would like more information on any of the cards or would like a close-up photo of any please drop me a comment.
My Card Swap for this round is the top right card on the photo directly above using Comfort and Hopestamp set.
I hope these might inspire you for your next creating.
Be sure to check in tomorrow for Round 2 Card Swaps.
Ok. This is the last for a while. I have hit you hard with all these nautical cards with the Come Sail Away Suite of products this past week. I will move on after today.
For this card I wanted to use one of the prints in the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper pack. I found it well a bit dull. Can I say that?? I mean it was a dull colour and was like an old newsprint. I think it was the colour of it that challenged me. So let’s give it a try. Maybe you feel the same and don’t know what to do with it.
I cut a piece of the paper to a size just a little smaller than your card front. Then I cut off about 5cm (2″), then flipped that paper piece over and then used the 2 different prints for the front. the join was covered with the diecut “rope”. Adding a little pop of colour with the Night of Navy and the Real Red certainly lifts it.
The compass was stamped on white and cut out then layered on a little Red scalloped Circle from the Layering circles Dies. The fun thing with the Smooth Sailing Dies is that there is the little “needle”. I cut one out from Night of Navy to adhere over the compass. It gives you a little dimension to it. I didn’t like the boats just stuck on the front of the card. They needed a little grounding so I cut a vellum piece from the StitchedNested Labels Dies.
I hope you have liked all these cards from this suite of products. I have certainly had fun with them. Which card has been your favourite?
A very quick card for you today using the Sailing Home Bundle.
For this card I had some “bits” left on my table from creating lots of cards with the suite. So we don’t want them to go to waste right?
The Night of Navy card mat was embossed with the Subtles Embossing Folder. I was going to use that on another card and didn’t end up using it so it worked for here. I had the strip of paper from the Come Sail Away paper pack leftover and even the diecut ship wheel. So a little stamping and sticking together and the card was done.
But wait, what about that cute little stitched sentiment diecut. I think I sold a few sets this weekend just with this little banner alone. Don’t we just love the stitched dies?? 🙂

This weekend it’s all about the Sailing Home Bundlein my classes and on my blog here. So I think it’s a good time to have a closer look at the full Come Sail Away Suite for Sunday Suitestoday.
This is a really great suite for those hard-to-make men’s cards. Let’s face it. We all struggle with them. While it might be boats and sailing there are some other fun elements. Let’s have a look.
You can make some of the samples above and lots more with any or all of the Suite products below.
The Come Sail Away Suite can be ordered with just one item code making shopping so much easier. #152175 $165.25 AUD
or you can pick just one or 2 of the items.
I wanted to show you a couple of the products in closer detail.
The Memories and More Cardpack features maritime images. It has 50 double-sized cards and they come in 2 different sizes. 3″ x 4″ (7.6 x 10.2 cm) and 4″ x 6″ (10.2 x 15.2 cm) sizes. I love the single-sided laser-cut specialty cards. See them below.
There is also some sticker sheets included too. Don’t just think of the these card packs for scrapbooking. They are great for cards as well.
You have to check out the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.
The prints show really don’t show it justice to be honest. There are some great nautical prints. Check the video below the paper image.
Now you need to see this High Seas 3D Embossing Folder closer. It is like waves. Great with this bundle. Available now for $17 AUD #149577 (You can order it in store in the link below)
You get a really good idea of this embossing folder in the Soft Suede sample below. And by the way the card above that uses one of the diecut cards from the Memories and More pack.

I have another card for you today using the Sailing Home Bundle.
This card was inspired by a card by Nicole you can see HERE.
For my card I just stamped the compass and the birds in Crumb Cake Ink. I added 2 boats on mine. They were stamped in Memento Blackand coloured with the Stampin’ Write Markers.
The strip of paper is from the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. I wanted to make it a little more general for the sentiment. This could be used for a number of different occasions. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetingsand punched with the Classic Label Punch.
Just keeping it simple for this card.
Like I did with this card, when you start with a stamp set and not sure where to go with it, it is good to look around especially on Pinterest for other cards with the stamp set. You can CASE it directly or be inspired by the card and use that as a spring board for your own creations.
