Good Morning! I pulled out the Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail bundle for the first time this weekend to make a card and I love it! I love the little sailboat with it’s sleek, cool modern design and the coordinating punch totally kicks it up! So I made this card yesterday afternoon for my Facebook Live. You can find the supplies I used in my video at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
Here is the link to the Facebook Live video from yesterday. I also posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel and you can view it here.
I started with the background, making a mask for coloring the sun with one of the Layering Circles dies and copy paper. I laid the mask on a Basic White panel and inked up a blending brush with Daffodil Delight ink and blended the ink through the circle to make a sun. I applied Tahitian Tide ink to another blending brush and blended it around the rest of the panel, avoiding the sun and applying the ink darker on the bottom of the panel.
I stamped the bottom of the panel with the Gentle Waves stamp in Starry Sky ink and cut the panel out with a Stitched Rectangle die. I adhered the panel to a Starry Sky mat. I stamped the sails from the Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail photopolymer stamp set in Sweet Sorbet ink on Basic White and cut them out with the Sail Boat Builder punch. I stamped the boat and mast in Soft Suede on Basic White, punched it out and adhered it to the panel with liquid glue. I popped the sails on the mast with dimensionals and stamped the birds in Basic Gray. I adhered a panel of Layering Designs vellum to the front of a Tahitian Tide card base and popped the sailboat panel on top with dimensionals.
I punched the end of a strip of Tahitian Tide with the Banners Pick A Punch and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail stamp set in Starry Sky ink. I wrapped a length of white baker’s twine around the end of the banner and tied a knot. I adhered the banner to the card with dimensionals and finished it with a faceted dot.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sailboat in the same colors as the card front on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sea with the Gentle Waves stamp and brushed Tahitian tide ink over the waves. I stamped the birds in Basic Gray and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail bundle is a fun little set that is great for masculine cards, but can be used for many occasions calling for summer fun. The bold graphic is wonderful and the sentiments are positive, encouraging and inspiring. Be sure to check it out!
