Stampin' Up! Sailing Home Stamp Set 

Today's Sneak Peek from the new 2019-2020 annual Stampin' Up! catalog uses the Sailing Home Stamp Set from the new Come Sail Away Suite.  I also the coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies along with the new Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I'm IN MAD LOVE with our new style dies!!  They cut so smoothly and the detailed stitching is much more detailed than on our current dies.  The stitched details come out of the dies so easily and perfectly.  I can't wait to use more of these new dies! 

I created a card based on one of the cards from the display boards at the San Antonio event and added my own creative twists. 

The basecard for today's card is Night of Navy.  Then a layer of the coordinating Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper from the Come Sail Away Suite.  Then a banner of Cherry Cobbler dry embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder, which will carry over to the new catalog. (Yeah!)          


I stamped the sailboat and birds in Night of Navy on a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock die cut using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  Then I use my White colored pencil to shade the sailboat sail white.  I used a label die from the Smooth Sailing Dies to create a die cut for the sentiment.  The sentiment is stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock in Night of Navy.  Look closely at the stitched edges.  They came out of the die perfectly!             

I created a second version of this card using another sentiment from the Sailing Home Stamp Set and stamped it in Night of Navy on a Very Vanilla Stitched Rectangle die cut. 


We were introduced to this set during Stampin' Up! On Stage where we made the card on the right.  This suite has so many fun elements to work with, I can't wait to find more ways to use this set.  It includes sentiments that make this a perfect stamp set for creating great graduation cards, encouragement, Thanks you cards, and other very useful sentiment.  The coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies and the coordinating Come Sail Away Designer Series Papers will make this suite a delight to work with.   

You'll find many ways to create with this new suite.  I'm sure your Pinterest Boards are growing with the addition of other new catalog sneak peeks you are seeing.  Be sure to add this to your Sailing Home Stamp Set board on Pinterest.
