Sailing Home — Masculine Birthday Card

Sailing Home Masculine Birthday Card

The Sailing Home stamp set from Stampin’ Up! makes such a perfect masculine birthday card!

Who doesn’t love a lighthouse?  Every lighthouse I’ve seen is located in a beautiful location, and they serve such a magnificent purpose. I am hoping this Masculine Birthday Card using elements of the Sailing Home stamp set from Stampin’ Up! evokes the feelings of the calm from the lighthouse beacon and a compass directing you to your destination.

The Sailing Home stamp set, the Smooth Sailing dies, and Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper can be found on pages 144-146 in the 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! annual catalog, however, they can be purchased individually or as a bundle and save 10% — gotta love that deal!  You can check them out in my ONLINE STORE.

I love how all the elements of the card (lighthouse, compass, sailboat, birds) come together.

Daisy Lane — Friendship Card

Daisy Lane Friendship Card

I am so pleased that Stampin’ Up! decided to add the Daisy Lane stamp set with the smaller daisy and the beautiful fern.  They made it so simple to create this beautiful Daisy Lane Friendship Card.  It is also wonderful to have both the large and medium daisy punches. 

You can find the bundle on page 23 of the new 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! annual catalog.  If you would like to purchase the products used to create this card or anything else you might want or “need” click HERE or on the links below this post.

I have always loved having a fern stamp and think this one is particularly beautiful and it fills the background with just the right touch to showcase the daisies.

I thought the “white space” was just a bit much.  So, I toned it down with the spatter stamp from the Waterfront stamp set. I wanted a very light touch to the “splatter,” so the stamp was tapped off twice before stamping.  Love the results!  The Clear Faceted Gems filled the centers of the daisies adding that all-important touch of glam and of course, the petals are colored with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

 

Cutting Instructions:

  • Mossy Meadow cardstock 4-1/4″ x 11″, score and fold at 5-1/2″ (card base)
  • Merry Merlot cardstock 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Whisper White cardstock 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″
  • Whisper White cardstock 3″ x 11″ (stamp and punch 3 large daisies and 4 medium daisies)
  • Whisper White cardstock 3-3/4″ x 5″ (inside of card)
