High Tide Banner

2014_05_29 Today’s post is the final post in my nautical celebration posts.  I used the fabulous High Tide DSP #132992 for the background from the Stampin Up occasions catalog.  I added 9 mini banners punched from scraps of cardstock with the Banner punch from  and then stamped the anchors form the Hello Sailor #133278 stamp set.   Good news, the banner punch is coming back with the new Stampin Up 2014-2015 annual catalog.   I wrapped 2 pieces of 1/4 inch real red and then added the sentiment from the Hello Sailor  to make the Chalk Talk Framelits #129983 tag.

If you like the High Tide DSP and the Hello Sailor Stamp set then you must act fast because when the Stampin Up occasions catalog ends on 1 June you will not be able to get these products or anything else in the occasion catalog

Whale Hello Sailor

2014_05_28IMG_1450 For today’s card I wanted to showcase another piece of the wonderful High Tide DSP #132992.  I added a strip of the summer starfruit 1 1/4 ” striped ribbon #132980.  I used the Hello Sailor #133278 stampset for my sentiment and then cut it out using the Window Frames Framelits #129021 and a larger Window to mat the sentiment on.

This card is the perfect example of how Stampin Ups beautiful DSP can make for a simple and wonderful card.  All product on this card is from the Stampin Up occasions catalog and is only available through 1 June.

High Tide

2014_05_27IMG_1449 Today’s post is another in a week long nautical celebration. I used the fabulous High Tide DSP #132992 for the main piece and the coordinating strip.  I used the Hello Sailor #133278 stamp set to make the Chalk Talk Framelits #129983 tag and tied it with a piece of the Yummy Summer Starfruit 1 1/4 inch Striped Grossgrain Ribbon #132980.  I added 3 mini banners from scraps with the Banner punch from SAB.  Good news, the banner punch is coming back with the new Stampin Up 2014-2015 annual catalog and so is the 1 1/4 inch striped ribbon, although the Starfruit will not be available.

Message in a Bottle

2014_05_26IMG_1448 Happy Memorial Day.  Continuing with the nautical cards to celebrate my sister, Blair’s birthday today is a fun card using mostly the wonderful High Tide DSP #132992 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog. I paired the DSP with the Hello Sailor stamp set #133278.  Both the Background and the Bottle are from the High Tide DSP.  I hand cut out the bottle and added a piece of the crushed Curry Thick Bakers twine and added the stamped anchor, from the Hello Sailor stamp set.  I punched a circle through the DSP and  the card base and then stamped the sentiment from the Hello Sailor set.

The good news is that the thick Bakers Twine  that was available during SAB will be brought back and in many more colors YAY!  The Bad News is, the Hello Sailor and the High Tide DSP will not be available after June 1st so hurry and place an order.

Hello Sailor

2014_05_25IMG_1446 Happy birthday to one of our own! Our baby sister, Blair and Navy nurse is having a birthday today.  Like me, she celebrates birth month and loves her birthday so for the rest of the week, I will be posting nautical designs.

For today’s card I made my own background by stamping the anchor from the Hello Sailor #133278 stampset from the Stampin Up occasions catalog.  I hand cut a banner from the Fresh Prints #132996 and then made the life preserver from the Circles Collection Framelits #130911.  To complete the card I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Sailor stamp set and cut it out using the window frames framelits #129021 and punched a star from the soon to be retired Itty Bitty Punches.

If you like the Hello Sailor stampset  and the Fresh Prints DSP paper stack  or anything else in the Stampin Up occasions catalog you only have until June 1st and most items will be gone forever.

Best Mate

2014_02_13best mate 001

OK today’s card really rocks.  I love anything nautical and have been holding off purchasing the new nautical stuff from the Stampin Up occasions catalog until now! Cammie made this card for her husband for Valentines day using the Hello Sailor #133275 stamp set from the Stampin Up occasions catalog.  She did an outstanding job brayering the ocean and sky. Cammie added the sea weed using the now retired Valentine Defined stampset. She added the whales from the Hello Sailor set.  Wait! There is only one whale so how did she do that?  Well she inked up the whale and stamped it on a clear window sheer or the stamp a ma jig sheet, turned it over and lined it up on the card next to the other whale and then brayered over the sheet to get the ink to transfer from the window sheet to the main panel.  To complete the card she punched a  Full Heart #119883 and then added the sentiment.
