The new Sailing Home stamp set is one of my favorites. It has great details in the stamps and the matching dies are awesome! A side note is that the lighthouse die for Sailing Home will also fit the lighthouse in High Tide. I love double duty products.
After saying how nice the dies are, I did not use them for the project. Oops!! However, I did use the gorgeous Designer Series Paper this suite has. All of the products in the suite are wonderful. I have several more ideas with this suite of products.
For today’s card, I stamped the lighthouse and the birds using Gray Granite Ink. I know it looks a little on the brown side, but I really did use the gray. I think it changes colors a bit. Plus my photo seems a tad dark. The base and layer behind the lighthouse are Night of Navy.
To add the sentiment, I decided I wanted it to look like a tag. The Congrats is part of the stamp set and I love the font used for it. I decided to punch it out with the Classic Label Punch. To make the short tag from the longer punch was very easy. I stamped and punched with the sentiment at one end of the punch. I then took the punched label and fed it back into the punch from the cutting area, not the outside like you would to make the original punch. Because the height is already cut, it makes it fairly simple to get it lined us straight. And now you have a half size Classic Label.
I added the Night of Navy Baker’s Twine as “rope” for the nautical card. I wrapped it around and taped it on the back. I then cut a small strip to tie around the front and tied a knot. To attach the sentiment, I simple added a glue dot under the end and layer it just underneath the baker’s twine. I left the end not attached.
