Sailing Away - Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop

Come Sail Away

Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the Sailing Away Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Each month our very talented and creative team of designers will be bringing you inspiration, so get comfortable and have a ton of fun hopping along with us. You may have just arrived from the wonderfully talented Kaylee Van Es' Blog. Just over the moon about what she has created!

Today, we will be showcasing the Sailing Home Bundle. These products come from the Come Sail Away Suite, in the brand new Annual Catalog, and all coordinate beautifully with cool little trinkets, nautical themed DSP (Designer Series Paper), and gorgeous thick baker's twine-everything you need for that masculine or ocean themed card! One of the things that I love about this set is that it is ocean themed. I'm a sucker for those types of sets. The images and fun font just make this such a fun set to stamp with.There are 12 stamps and 12 dies. Additionally, there are some fun dies that create embossed designs when cut out. There are so many possibilities!


 For my card today, I wanted to have a layer that had a "wave" look to it. There is a new wave embossing folder in the new catalog, but I wasn't able to get it yet so I had to get creative. I used one of the laser cut cards from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card PackIt's supper easy to do and creates a unique, textured look. 

Here's how you do it: 
  1. First, take a piece of Balmy Blue Cardstock (or any color) and place the "wave" looking laser cut card (pictured above) over top of it..
  2. Next, sandwich it in your die cutting machine just as you would to die cut, NOT EMBOSS. You can add additional shims for more added depth and texture.
  3. Then use a Stamping Sponge and your Balmy Blue Ink to ink onto your embossed cardstock to really accent the embossing.
Here's a closeup of the effect:
