Sailing Home is still a firm favourite....

Hi all,

I just can't stop going back to the Sail Away Suite of products.  If you haven't had chance to see the suite, then you must! To say I am hooked is an understatement.  The images are so detailed and the coordinating dies are really intricate and there are some great additional dies in the set too!

I made this card on Sunday after me and my little family took a walk along the River Medway.  We took in the lovely sights from Upnor Castle to lots of boats and then stopped for a slice of cake in one of our favourite places.  It was a lovely morning in the windy sunshine and I definitely felt inspired when I got home to my craft room.


I have used a standard card base cut from Balmy Blue Cardstock that I have stamped all over with a Balmy Blue Classic Stampin' Pad and the anchor image stamp from the Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set.

I have added a piece of stripey Come Sail Away DSP  (my favourite design in the pack!) and used the rope die from the coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies to cut two pieces of Soft Suede Cardstock to add along the top and bottom of the DSP strip.

The banner has been cut from another die in the set onto which I have used a Night of Navy Classic Stampin' Pad to stamp the sentiment, and this has been mounted onto the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.  

The anchor has been stamped using a Balmy Blue Classic Stampin' Pad onto Whisper White Cardstock and cut out using the coordinating die and attached.


I always enjoy using this Sailing Home Stamp Set and Smooth Sailing Dies.  When purchasing these items together as a bundle, you can save 10% off the catalogue price.

    Thank You Big Time with Animal Outing

    Hi all,

    Today is a brand new week and I can't believe that it is already week 4 of the summer holidays here in the UK!  Me and my girls have been kept busy enjoying our down time together with fun activities, catching up with friends, trips to the park and plenty of cuddles!  Hubby has been home as well so I've managed a fair amount of crafting time as well, hooray!

    Today's card that I am sharing with you is using the Animal Outing Stamp Set that was a big feature in last year's annual catalogue and has carried over into the new one!

    I started by stamping the images onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and added some splashing of black ink using a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.  I have stamped the images again onto a separate piece, coloured in and cut out.  I have then layered the coloured images over the original stamped images.  This gives the look that the animals are infront / behind one another.  I have used the same Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to draw a thin line around the white layer.


    Onto a standard C6 cardbase cut from Thick Whisper White Cardstock, I have added a piece of Sailing Home DSP (measuring 10cm x 14.4cm), and added my stamped piece. 

    To finish, I have used the Sprig Punch to cut two pieces of Whisper White Cardstock.  I have used a Dark Mossy Meadow Stampin Blend Marker to colour in and then added to the cardfront using Mini Glue Dots.  To finish, I have tied a piece of Night Of Navy / sahara Sand Bakers Twine into a double bow.


    I forgot how much fun this stamp set could be so keep an eye out for some more projects with this soon....!
