Hello and welcome to part 2 of my Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Suite Showcase. Last week I shared a simple watercolour card which you can find here if you missed it.
This week we are going to step-it-up a bit by using the coordinating dies and embellishments. This is a project I created a while ago but didn’t get round to blogging but I thought it would be perfect for this Showcase.
Let’s make it…
I started with a 15x15cm piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock to form the base of the decoration and cut away two corners to give a pennant shape. I then tore a strip of 15cm wide Balmy Blue cardstock and adhered across the centre of the pennant (trim to fit where necessary). I did the same with a strip of Sahara Sand cardstock and adhered to the bottom of the pennant.
I punched holes in the top corners using the 0.5″ Circle Punch and inserted a paper straw. You can then either thread string through the straw to enable hanging or tie a small length of string around the centre of the straw (at the back of the decoration).
The lighthouse and boat images were stamped in Night of Navy ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the coordinating dies. The anchor and compass images were stamped in Sahara Sand ink onto Whisper White and cut out using the coordinating dies and 1.5″ Circle Punch, respectively. The ships wheel and compass hands were cut directly from Sahara Sand cardstock.
The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the label die. The flag shape is cut from Balmy Blue cardstock using the die and snipped in half before adhering to the back of the sentiment piece.
All the die cut elements were arranged and adhered to the base pennant using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensinals (sentiment piece).
Final touches were added using one of the Night of Navy Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots in the centre of the compass hands and an anchor Sail Away Trinket which is attached to the paper straw using Night of Navy / Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine.
