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

SAILING HOME MINI CARD!

Today I have a mini card for you using the Sailing Home bundle.  I received this one in a Team swap last month I think.  I am not sure who it was from sorry. 🙂

This is a mini Card measuring about 7.5cm x 7.5cm (3″x3″)

From what I can tell with this card the sky was sponged in the top part of the card using Pool Party ink. The water was created using the lines in the High Tide set.  It’s great when the stamp sets co-ordinate with each other. I think it was given a light wash with the Aquapainter to blend out the colours. The lighthouse was stamped separately and then diecut and coloured in small sections of it.

It’s a sweet card so Thank You to whoever made this card.

Come back tomorrow so you can see more cards using the Sailing Home stamps and the co-ordinating Smooth Sailing dies.

WILDLY HAPPY MINI THANKS!

I have been having some fun with the Wildly Happy Stamp set lately.

I made a number of mini cards to have for our team swaps and also to have for Customer Thanks. As I had to make quite a few I didn’t have time to colour them – and you don’t have to all the time.

Stampin' Up! Wildly Happy

These are mini cards measuring 10cm x 10cm (or 4″x4″). To get 3 out of 1 sheet of A4 card I cut the card at 9.9cm and 19.8cm. Then cut each piece at 19.8cm and score at 9.9cm.

I made a few of each of the 2019 Incolors with the different cute animals in the stamp set. The card mats were embossed with the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder.

The sentiment tag is actually from the Smooth Sailing dies.

Hope you like them.

Have a great weekend.

Jenny
