Pretty Cards and Paper Blog Hop

I am so excited to share projects with you from demonstrator friends around the world all using the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. I am honored to be a part of this design team and love that we can all share projects using the same DSP. Make sure to check out all the blogs (list at the bottom) and enjoy these projects from around the world.

This paper suits me pretty well, considering I live in a seaside town, and across the road from the ocean! I can even see a lighthouse from our front windows! There’s often days where we watch Dolphins, and can you believe it even a Whale once.

So onto my card….

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home

I’ve started my card with a base of Balmy Blue, sponged around the edges and also stamped the seagulls on the top left and bottom right hand corners.

Next I’ve adhered a layer of the compass paper, and a smaller piece of the striped linen look paper.

I then cut out a stitched circle, sponged around the edge and stamped the seagulls again. I cut a strip of Night of Navy and cut V into one end and adhered it to the circle. This has helped tie in the navy from the paper. The circle was then adhered over the striped paper.

I’ve stamped the lighthouse onto Whisper White paper using Night of Navy ink, and cut out with the matching dies. I then took a slightly damp aquapainter and coloured over the image. This allowed the ink to bleed a little and fill the image in more without taking away from the detailed look.

The lighthouse is raised with Dimensionals. I’ve stamped For You from the Itty Bitty Greetings set, cut out and adhered over the lighthouse.

My card is finally complete with a little ships wheel from the Sail Away Trinkets pack.

It’s time to see what the rest of the Design Team has made using the Bird Ballad DSP. Make sure to visit everyone to see all the fun things you can do with this paper.

If you have any questions about the card, or would like to order any of the products I’ve used, please feel free to contact me.

Cheers for now – Alisa
