Today I'm sharing a sneak peak of one of my favourite suites from the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue. The Come Sail Away Suite is a fabulous set of coordinating products, and includes the:
- Sailing Home stamp set
- Smooth Sailing Dies
- High Seas 3D Embossing Folder
- Come Sail Away Designer series Paper
- Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker's Twine
- Sail Away Trinkets
- Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack
You have everything in this suite to make fabulous cards for either gender. For this card, I have used a Balmy Blue card base and added a layer embossed with the retiring Seaside embossing folder. I'm looking forward to getting hold of the new High Seas 3D embossing folder, which unfortunately was not available in the Demonstrator pre-order.
I cut a 2" strip of the lovely navy striped design from the Come Sail Away Designer Paper pack and used the Banner Triple Punch to flag the end. Underneath is a narrower Real Red flagged banner to add a pop of bright colour.
Although a little difficult to see, I spritzed the right side of the Shimmery White stitched oval; I added some drops of Balmy Blue reinker into a spritzer bottle filled with rubbing alcohol. Once it was dry I stamped the greeting from Itty Bitty Birthdays on the left in navy ink and I added the stitched oval to a larger oval in Real Red. The lighthouse and anchor were stamped and die cut and popped up on the right. The Sailing Home stamp set is in the DistINKtive style so you get lots of lovely detail and shading in the images from just one impression of the stamp. I finished with one of the cute ships wheel trinkets on the banner.
For the inside, I have a Night of Navy Mat for the writing panel with a strip of the blue striped designer paper at the bottom. The smaller of the 2 sailing boats was stamped in Early Espresso ink and I finished with the red 'rope' trim, which is one of the extra dies in the Smooth Sailing Dies set.
