Stampin' Up! Sailing Home Bundle

The Sailing Home bundle includes the Sailing Home Stamp Set and the Smooth Sailing Dies.  Its sure to become your go-to stamp set for Masculine Birthdays and Special occasions, or for that family that's always at the ocean or lake once you see how many different elements this suite,--called the Come Sail Away Suite--includes.  Check it out on pages 144-146 of the annual Stampin' Up! Catalog.  You going to enjoy making cards, samplers, and scrapbook pages using this set.      


This was a swap card that I received from another demonstrator,  Dorene Decibus that I modified as a birthday card.  However, Dorene's original card is perfect as a Father's Day card for your husband or a Father or Grandfather that headed you in the right direction in life.  My grandfather was a carpenter, with 18 children living in a very small town in Western Minnesota.  He had a carpenter shop behind his home that my aunt, who still lives in the family home as kept in his memory.  This time of year I miss him greatly as we start planning family reunions, which as you can imagine, include a very, very large collection of aunts uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
Card idea using the Stampin' Up! Sailing Home Stamp Set

The cards are created on a Night of Navy basecard.  Then a long piece of Balmy Blue creates the base for the front panels and the inside folds.  The panels use different prints from the coordinating Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper Pack. The final panel is Whisper White stamped with the compass image in Night of Navy ink so you can write a short message and sign the card.   

Changing elements and sentiments in your card creates cards for different uses.

The photo above show the inside panels of the two card laid flat.  You can see how you can use the same basic card design and customize it for different occasions by changing out the elements and the sentiment.

The card uses die cuts that were stamped in Night of Navy using the Sailing Home Stamp Set.  Then they were die cut using the Smooth Sailing Dies.  The corner of the card front's sentiment is accented with one of the Sail Sway Trinkets and a bow made from the coordinating Navy and Sahara Sand Twine.      

If your undecided between getting the Sailing Home Stamp Set or the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp set from an earlier post, my advice is, "get them both".  You won't regret how much use you get out of these two wonderful new sets.
