STAMPIN' UP! CORPORATE BLOG - COME SAIL AWAY

Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I’m excited to be featured on the Stampin' Up!® Corporate Blog sharing cards I've created using the Come Sail Away Suite(#152175). I love the whole nautical theme, it’s very fresh and clean, and totally my favourite crafting style!
 
This Suite makes creating those perfectly co-ordinated masculine projects from cards to memory-keeping pages fun and easy!



The laser-cut specialty card with the rope design from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack (#149552) created the perfect background for my Note Cards (#131527). I lay the laser-cut card on my piece of Whisper White Cardstock (#106549), which I had die cut using the Stitched Rectangles (#148551) and smothered it with Embossing Paste (#141979). To create a bolder background, I added a few drops of Night of Navy Classic Stampin’ Ink (#103033) to the Embossing Paste and again used the laser-cut card as a mask. I used the remaining paste on two more pieces of card to achieve lighter variations. All the images are from the Sailing Home Stamp Set (#149457) and have been die cut with the Smooth Sailing Dies (#149576).

 
The lighthouse has been embossed using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109132) on Vellum Cardstock (#106584) and layered up on stickers from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack, Silver Metallic Thread (#138402), and Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#144220) coloured with the Dark Night of Navy Blends (#144039). Stampin’ Blends colour these embellishments to co-ordinate perfectly with your projects. Use the light or dark Blend depending on the depth of colour you wish to achieve.


The anchor has been embossed using Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109131) on Silver Foil Sheets (#132178) and threaded with Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine (#149483) and layered up with some seaweed die cut in Night of Navy Cardstock (#106577), stickers from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack, Silver Metallic Thread, and Rhinestone Basic Jewels coloured with the Dark Night of Navy Blend.
 
 
The yacht has been stamped in Night of Navy Classic Stampin’ Ink on Vellum Cardstock and then heat embossed with Clear Emboss Powder (#109130). You can do this with any of the Classic Stampin’ Pads and Clear Emboss Powder to create coloured embossing. You need to work quickly to avoid the ink drying before you’ve added the Emboss Powder. It is also layered up with the seaweed and ship’s wheel die cut in Whisper White Cardstock, Silver Metallic Thread, and Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
 

The lighthouse has also been stamped in Night of Navy Classic Stampin’ Ink on Vellum Cardstock and then heat embossed with Clear Emboss Powder. It is layered up with the ship’s wheel die cut in Night of Navy Cardstock, Silver Metallic Thread, and Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
The sentiments, Thanks and Congrats are from the Sailing Home Stamp Set (#149457) and have been die cut using the co-ordinating banner die from the Smooth Sailing Dies (#149576) with the left-hand side of the banner trimmed to tuck under the stamped images.

I’ve loved sharing my cards with you today and hope they’ve inspired you to create some masculine projects for those men in your lives!
