SAILING HOME PAPER BOATS!

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 Stitched Nested 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?

Thanks for stopping by,

Jenny

SUNDAY SUITE – COME SAIL AWAY!

This weekend it’s all about the Sailing Home Bundle in 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 Suites today.

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 Card pack 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.

What do you think of this bundle.  I can tell you everyone has loved using them in class this weekend.  … And they may have added it to their orders. 🙂

You can grab the Come Sail Away Suite with just one item code or grab one or two items.  Shop in my store now -> HERE.

Please use the Host Code: VA9WC4CZ

This weekend order the Sailing Home Bundle (stamps and dies $88 AUD) and receive the tutorials and the card kits for the 3 cards we have been making in class this weekend.  You can see them in an earlier post.  Also, receive 2 additional metres of Night of Navy Baker’s Twine. If you order the full Suite I will also send you out the Card kits and tutorials.

You will also be eligible for the Tutorial Bundle as a Thank you this month.  This contains 12 exclusive projects from Demonstrators around the world of which I am a part of.  (These are not using the Sailing Home Bundle).
