Introducing the Sailing Home Suite by Stampin' Up!

Sailing Home Stampin' Up!
Masculine cards are easy and fun with the new Sailing Home Suite from Stampin' Up!. Let me share some cards and home decor pieces that I have made recently.

Sailing Home Stampin' Up!

This card is probably a bit over the top or for the Avid Stamper.   But, honestly, I was having fun playing with my new Sailing Home Bundle and Memories & More Pack.  The lighthouses in the background are a card from the Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack.  I fashioned the Lifesaver using a combination of Layering Circle dies, card stock and Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker's Twine. The Sailboat, birds, and sentiment were stamped using the Sailing Home Stamp Set and Night of Navy Ink.    Everything else was cut with the Smooth Sailing Dies.  And finally, I layered and arranged to create an eye-appealing scene.

My Nautical Home Decor piece was inspired by this card.  Again, my background is a piece from the Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack.  The Sentiment was stamped with the High Tide companion stamp set.

I used the Masking Technique to create the sailboat in the moonlight scene behind the lighthouse.  The entire card was made with the Sailing Home Bundle and the Circle Layering dies.

Winter Woods Pillow Box

Winter Woods Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

 When I saw the Winter Woods Bundle from the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, I knew that it was a must have.  What a great set of dies and a beautiful stamp set!  I love that it coordinates so well with 2 other popular stamp sets, Rooted in Nature and Lovely as a Tree.

Hint:  The ready made Kraft Pillow Boxes are perfect for tucking in a gift card or other small gift.

Plus, we recently became a Certified Tree Farm on our little piece of paradise in rural Ohio, thanks in a large part to our son, Bryan.  Here he is helping us prepare for a new planting of 1,600 trees.  The beautiful Winter Woods stamp set simply had to hop on my shelf. 

Watch as Tanner Smedley from the Stampin' Up! home office introduces the Winter Woods Bundle, then I will share an easy stamping technique for creating depth on your trees.


The Winter Woods Bundle will be available in my Online Store starting Wednesday, September 5, 2018.

Winter Woods Stampin' Up!

Both my stamping technique and layered dies, work together to make the fabulous textured tree.  Love the way I can flip up the branches with this In the Woods Die.

Here's the tree stamped with Mint Macaron Ink.  Not bad, but let's step it up a notch with this simple stamping technique.

Winter Woods Stampin' Up!

The Stamparatus, stamp positioning tool is key to making this technique work.  Each stamped layer must line up perfectly.  After stamping my base layer with Mint Macaron ink, I then pounced Shaded Spruce ink randomly across my stamp and stamped a second layer of color.

I repeated the process with Tranquil Tide ink to get this tree.  I stamped two trees, then cut them with dies from the In the Wood Die set and stacked an curled them for a really full look.  Beautiful!

Christmas Tagables & Online Extravaganza's Last Day


Kleerview Farm

Did you listen to Christmas music all weekend?  Get your Christmas tree?  Christmas is in the air.  We spent the afternoon yesterday at Kleerview Farm choosing the perfect Christmas Tree.  We even saw reindeer resting up for their big day.  And afterwards...we sipped Hot Cocoa and munched on cookies.  All that activity put me in the mood for stamping Christmas Tags.

Christmas Tagables


I choose the Christmas Tagables stamp set and the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch for making my Christmas Tags.  Here's the results of my stamping session.  And for Today Only Save 20% on these two items.

Today is also the last day for Online Extravaganza


Christmas Tags

 Tags are a great way to use pretty little scraps of this and that with your punches.

Christmas Tags

 The Scallop Tag Topper Punch makes the greatest tags.  Simply cut 2" strips of card stock and punch.  Ta-da!


There is just so much cuteness in the Christmas Tagables stamp set.  Love it!
