Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Looking for a unique Graduation Card? Today I have a card to share with you that would work perfectly for a graduation or a new job. It’s the perfect solution if your recipient loves to sail, enjoys boating or just being on the water … the Come Sail Away Suite! You will find this suite in the new catalog (and if you need one, let me know) and it’s sure to be your new “go to” stamp set for masculine or water lovin’ friends once you see all the different elements included in this suite.
Whether you’re looking for a graduation card or you want to send your friend some summer fun, you will find this suite on pages 144 – 146. Page 145 has all the bundle and all the fun elements included in the suite. Did you know you can now purchase an entire suite with just one item number? …. Sweet!
My background has one of the designs for the Come Sail Away Designer Series paper and is adhered to the Night of Navy card base. My sail boat and greeting are both stamped with Night of Navy on Sahara Sand cardstock. I used the coordinating Balmy Blue cardstock to pull the color out of the designer paper and embossed it with the “High Seas” 3D Embossing Folder that is included in the suite and adds texture to the card.
Also included in the suite are the Bakers Twine and Sail Away Trinkets which embellish the card so nicely. The bakers twine ties the colors together and the “helm” or “ships steering wheel” adds some fun dimension to the card and ties nicely with the greeting which was die cut using the circle dies.
The lighthouse and birds were stamped on the inside of the card to create a little interest when writing your note. Besides … I love lighthouses!!
Thank you for joining me today, hope yours is a good one.
See you tomorrow ~
TODAY’S STAMPING SUPPLY LIST …
Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
I hope you enjoyed your weekend and the parade of cards that I showcased yesterday. Just a quick reminder that today is the last day for the retirement list and discounted items, also to stock up on cardstocks and stuff before the price increase that is in the new catalog.
Today I want to share one of my favorite product suites in the new catalog; the Magnolia Lane product suite. There are going to be so many different ways and techniques to use with this beautiful suite, the possibilities are endless! I started with the basics, designer paper and stamps to create a beautiful card to say “Thanks” for supporting me in my stamping business.
I wanted to showcase the beautiful Magnolia Lane Designer paper so I used the Magnolia Lane Memories and More Cards & Envelopes for my base. The designer paper is cut 4″ x 3-1/2″ to fit inside the silver borders that are preprinted on the base. I stamped the “thanks” onto Whisper White cardstock and punched it out using the NEW Timeless Label punch … this was popped up with dimensionals and the front of the card was finished.
These are just 3 of the patterns I used to create my Thank you cards ….
To create the inside of the card, I cut a 5″ x 3-1/4″ (approximately) piece of Whisper White … this gave a more even border around the white. I then stamped the sentiment onto the cardstock. To finish I stamped the small magnolia bloom and colored it with the Petal Pink and Mossy Meadows Stampin’ Blends combo packs.
The Stampin’ Blends give the perfect touch of color to the magnolia stamps, so easy to shade and highlight with the combos … I like the way it make “me” look like an artist and all I’m doing in coloring! This is just a little peek into what you’ll be able to create with this product suite. I’ll be hosting a class and will be sharing more magnolia’s with you.
So friends, I’m sure you know by know that you can save 10% when purchasing the stamp set and dies in a bundle, well, if you look in the upper right hand corner of the catalog on page 37 … you will see that you can now order the “entire” product suite with just one number!!
