Sneak Peek of Sailing Home Stamp Set

I made a couple of versions of today's card using Sailing Home Stamp Set, part of the Sailing Home Bundle, coming in the June 4 new annual Stampin' Up! catalog. The Smooth Sailing Dies in this bundle include so many fun elements.  Today, I used an element that looks like rope to accent the top and bottoms of my card.  The Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper -- part of the Come Sail Away Suite -- includes  wonderful, nautical-themed papers to help you create many different looks with this new suite.  This is great for masculine graduation cards or for the graduate to send as thank-you cards.

The basecard for today's card is Thick Whisper White.  Then I used one of the prints from the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.  Then, using the Stitched Nested Label Dies, I cut a shape out of one of the new In Colors, Seaside Spray, to use as my image layer.

The images on the Seaside Spray were stamped in Versamark and covered with White Embossing Powder and heat embossed with my embossing tool. The rope die cuts, the Helm and the sentiment label are all cut using the Smooth Sailing Dies. I love the dimensions in these die cuts!

The sentiments are also from the Sailing Home Stamp Set, and are stamped with the new Seaside spray ink pad. The Helm die cut is popped up on Mini Dimensionals cut in half.               

This is such a fast, easy card using this new Sailing Home bundle. Be sure to add it to your Shopping list when ordering from the new annual Stampin' Up! catalog ordering begins on June 4.
