Come Sail Away Memories & More

Hello on this beautiful sun-filled day here in Lancaster, PA! I was busy last week working on projects for my Product Premiere and stamping club and it was so much fun playing with my catalog pre-orders. I just received the first order I placed when the catalog went live and can’t wait to work on more new projects! I will be posting the projects here in the weeks to come. Today I’m sharing a quick and easy card I made using the Come Sail Away Memories Card Pack – no stamping necessary!

Here is how I made the card:

  • I used a Whisper White Note Card for the card base.
  • Select a piece of paper from the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper pack, cut at 3 3/8″ x 4 7/8″ and adhere to card base.
  • Cut a piece of the sailboat DSP at 3″ x 4″. The card pack has a variety of overlays to choose from and I selected the sailboat, which I trimmed down to 3″ x 4″ and attached to the DSP using multipurpose liquid glue.
  • Tie a bow with the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand bakers twine and attach to sailboat piece with a glue dot.
  • There are two each of two different sticker sheets in the card pack. Select a greeting and accent piece and adhere to sailboat piece. I selected the “Happy Day” greeting and one of the compass images and attached it with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
  • Attach the sailboat piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I love using the Memories & More Card Packs. You can make a bunch of cards in no time at all, which makes them great for beginning crafters because you don’t even have to use stamps and ink! They are also great for casual and avid crafters that love to craft but are sometimes short on time. Stampin’ Up! sells an assorted package of Memories & More cards and envelopes designed specifically for the two sizes of the cards in the pack. I used the Stampin’ Up! Notecards because I was awaiting them in my most recent order, so give those a try if you have a package on hand.

Here is a short video about the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack.

Product Preview: Magnolia Lane Suite

Hello! Today’s card features products from the Magnolia Lane Suite in the 2019-2020 annual catalog. These products will be available starting on June 4th. I am such a sucker for floral designs and the minute I laid eyes on this suite I knew I had to have it! Today’s card uses the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set, coordinating dies and the beautiful Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. In the coming weeks I will be posting more cards using these products.

Here is how I made this card:

Card base – Petal Pink card stock cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and fold in half.

  • Emboss front of card with the Tufted Dynamic Embossing Folder. To get the curved cut at the bottom of the card use the die from the Magnolia Memory Dies. I wanted a nice amount of Designer Series Paper to show so instead of placing the die flush at the bottom of the card I moved it up. To make sure it stayed in place while I was running it through the Big Shot I used some washi tape to hold it.
  • Stamp large floral image with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Shimmery White Card Stock. Watercolor the image using a blender pen and Mossy Meadow, Petal Pink, Blushing Bride and So Saffron inks. I colored each petal partially, leaving the bottoms of the petals white. Let piece dry and then die cut.
  • Stamp the Hello greeting with Mossy Meadow. I used one of the small dies from the new Stitched Nested Labels Dies to cut out the greeting. Adhere floral image and greeting. I added a few pearls for a bit of bling.
  • For the inside of the card I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock at 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. I then cut a piece of the striped Designer Series Papers at 1 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ and adhered to bottom of white card stock. Adhere piece to inside of card.
