It’s Sailing Season – Here’s to Wind in Your Sails

The theme for this month’s blog hop is to create a card that has a masculine theme and we just worked on our Bull’s Eye sailboat to prepare it for summer sailing ~ what fun timing. The Sailing Home stamp set from the new 2019-20 annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue seemed a perfect starting point for creating this card for my hubby’s June birthday.

Here are some details of this fun fold card:

  • Pacific Point card stock cut to 8 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ and scored at 2 3/4″
  • Whisper White card stock: 3 5/8″ x 7″ + a piece for the largest circle die in the Stitched Shape die set.
  • Garden Impressions DSSP (designer series paper) cut in 3 3/8 square + inside piece 1 1/2″ x 4 1/4″.
  • Come Sail Away DSP (from the 2019-20 SU! Annual catalogue) cut to 4 x 2 1/2″ x 4″ + a piece for the envelope flat 2 1/4″ x 6 (trim away excess after gluing to flap).
  • Other items needed: mini dimensionals, Night of Navy/ Sahara Sand twine (from the new catty), Sailing Home stamp set, Smooth sailing dies, Night of Navy and Pacific Point inks, glue dot to hold the twine in place.

Country Floral embossing folder

The Country Floral embossing folder from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue is gorgeous!  I wasn’t going to get it, but all the posts showed these beautiful images and I couldn’t resist.

Today’s card is prepared using Petal Pink card stock (CS). The embossed layer is 4 X 5 1/4… spritz the paper first as this folder makes deep impressions and the spritzing allows the CS some “give” to accept those more easily. After embossing, allow to dry for just a bit. Then with Petal Pink ink and a sponge dauber, rub that color over the raised areas ~ love how gentle this coloring is and how it enhances the embossed design. Glue this piece to Petal Pink 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 CS.  Using the whisper white flax ribbon cut at about 6 1/2″ and wrap this around both pieces, adhering in back with glue dots. Then cut a piece of the whisper white polka dot ribbon at about 7″, placing this on top of the flax ribbon, using tape to adhere it on the back. Using the Pretty Label punch, create a label out of whisper white; rub the edges with Petal Pink, add your sentiment (I used one of my favorites from Perennial Birthday); add dimensionals and place on ribbon.  Using another short piece of the polka dot ribbon, tie a knot. Viola!  Attach all of this to the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Petal Pink CS with dimensionals.  Card front is done :o) On the inside adhere a piece of whisper white cut at 3 3/4 x 5 with your favorite sentiment.

For the envelope flap, I embossed another piece of Petal Pink CS cut at 2 1/4 x 6, glued it to the flap and bingo, the card is ready.  Fun, easy, and lovely.

Fun Additions

Hi folks! Surprise – I’m actually blogging something…. what I have most fun doing is creating cards, and this blogging business is just not very comfortable to me – so please be patient, OK? All I’m going to do today is add some photos, talk a LITTLE bit about each/ or some and see where this goes.

This first card is special – a first try that turned out so cute! I should really include a picture of how it opens. It’s a kind of explosion card and since it was first try I made it small so as not to waste/ throw away card stock. Can you imagine? :o)

The second card on the right was really a fun and messy project but turned out so beautiful, I loved every bit of it. Using dampened tissue paper and sprinkling brusho onto the wet tissue created these neat colors. Once dry, crinkle the tissue, then gently spread it out without making it flat. Leave the crinkles in it! Glue this to your card stock crinkling it even more. Then put it through your big shot to flatten it. Embellish however you like. The buttflies are from the wonderful botanical butterfly DSP during Sale-a-bration.
