Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #562 Sailing Home

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  This week we have a sketch.


I'm getting all excited now about our new 2019-2020 Stampin Up! Annual catalog that goes live on June 4th.  Today I'm using the new Sailing Home stamp set.

CCMC #562 Come Sail Away by Jo Anne Hewins

This card also features some new paper from the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.  It's really pretty.

The card base is Night of Navy cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The Come Sail Away paper is cut at 4 x 5 1/4 for the card front.

The Sahara Sand panel is 2 x 3 7/8 .  Use the Stamparatus to stamp the sailboat and birds.  You want to get good dark images.  The navy strip paper is cut to 1/2 x 3 1/2.  The Balmy Blue stripe is 3/4 x 3.  I use my Grid Paper to add these papers so that everything is straight.  Add all of this to the card base with dimensionals.

The saying is stamped on Whisper White in Night of Navy and punched out with the 1 1/2" Circle Punch.  Add this with dimensionals also.

Add some of the new Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker's Twine.  I think that might be some kind of sailor's knot, but I really don't know.  I used glue dots to adhere the twine.
