Hello everyone and welcome to another Stamp Off Challenge with Jackie, Buffy and me. Our challenge this week is to make a masculine card. These cards are the hardest for me to make but thankfully, Stampin’ Up!® makes some great masculine stamp sets. One of my favorites is Sailing Home. This set is in the 2020/2021 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. Sailing is big with the men in my life. My father was a sailor and so was my step-father. Rob loves to sail and we owned a sailboat for many years. The only reason we don’t have it anymore is because we bought the cottage and there just isn’t enough time in the summer for both.
To make this card, I first ran a piece of Seaside Spray cardstock through my Cut & Emboss Machine using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. Thought it looked like rough waters and would go well with the sailing theme. I stamped the lighthouse in Night Of Navy Ink and the sailboat in Basic Gray and then cut them out using the coordinating dies called Smooth Sailing. I cut out the anchor and the wheel using these dies too. They die cut and emboss at the same time which is so much fun. I layered everything on a piece of Basic White cardstock that I had cut out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.
The sentiment is from the stamp set called Itty Bitty Birthdays which is also in the 2020/2021 Annual Catalog. I had cut the flag end using my Paper Snips.
Now, let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie used for their masculine cards. I get to find out the same time you do since we don’t show each other what we make ahead of time. It is more fun that way.

Susan, this is so pretty. I love the “piled” images on the focal point. I guess you HAVE TO buy a sailing set, with that family background
This is a perfect card for anyone, especially those who love to sail! And that background does look like choppy water. Nice!!
