Sailing Home with Thanks

Sailing Home with Thanks

The Sailing Home Bundle includes Smooth Sailing Dies to cut out images stamped with the Sailing Home stamp set!  I love how the dies line up perfectly with the stamped images so there’s no need to “fussy cut” them individually.  The verses and greetings are so versatile – can be used for graduation, thinking of you, encouragement and thanks!

  1. Cut Gray Granite Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut Balmy Blue Cardstock at 3″ x 4″.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the card base.
  3. Cut Night of Navy Cardstock at 5″ x 3-3/4″.  Use Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder and the Big Shot to give this layer some detail.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach over the Balmy Blue layer.
  4. Use the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies and the Big Shot to cut out the Silver Foil circle.  Attach to the card base with Snail Adhesive.
  5. Stamp the sailboats and greeting with Night of Navy Classic Ink on Whisper White Cardstock.
  6. Use the Smooth Sailing Dies and the Big Shot to cut out the stamped images.  Use the Stampin’ Blends to colour the boats, not the sails.  Use Snail Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the sailboats and the greeting to the card.
  7. Attach a length of Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine to the anchor or the wheel from the Sail Away Trinkets.  Use Glue Dots to attach to the card front.

This sample used the Congrats greeting instead of Thanks and the Wheel Trinket instead of the Anchor Trinket.  Once again, so many choices all in the same suite – love it!

Now for another version, this one is using DSP as a background layer:

Magnolia with Shimmer Paint

Magnolia with Shimmer Paint

Sometimes you need a card in a hurry and you need it to be extra special!  By using one colour of Classic Ink (Sahara Sand) and adding some glitz with shimmer paint, you can create a Magnolia card that is both “quick & easy” and “extra special”!

Dimensions and Instructions:

  1. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock at 5″ x 3-3/4″.
  3. Use Sahara Sand Classic Ink to stamp large Magnolia stamp and greeting from Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.
  4. Use a small paintbrush or a cotton swab to paint Champagne Shimmer Paint on the leaves and the flower centre.
  5. Add Pearl Basic Jewels below the greeting using your favourite tool – Pick Up Tool or Paper Snips.

These are the products used:
