Rob and I have arrived at the cottage and I can not wait start seeing all the motor boats and sailboats go by. It is such a beautiful sight and I never get tired of it.
Let’s Set Sail is a stamp set that was originally in the January – June Mini Catalog but has carried over to the new Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. I am so happy that it did. It has been on my list since I first saw it but there were so many other things on my list that it kept getting pushed back. I finally just had to get it once I got to the cottage because boats and cottages go so well together. It comes in a bundle with a coordinating punch called Sailboat Builder Punch and you can save 10% by purchasing it in a bundle.
To make this card I first stamped the boat in Crumb Cake ink and the sails in Tahitian Tide and Daffodil Delight. Then I punched them all out using the Sailboat Builder Punch. Next I used the background stamp called Gentle Waves. I inked it with Tahitian Tide ink, stamped it off once on a scrap piece of paper and then stamped it again on a piece of Basic White card stock. Unfortunately, the Gentle Waves background stamp is retiring at the end of this month.
Next I cut out a circle using the Layering Circle dies and kept the negative as a mask. I used a Blending Brush with Daffodil Delight ink to make the sun. Then I stamped the seagulls and the sentiment in Memento Black ink. Lastly I adhered the boat section using Multipurpose Glue and the sails using Dimensionals. I layered everything onto a piece of Tahitian Tide card stock and a Daffodil Delight card base.
I know you are all wondering where my sunset photos are because I know you love them as much as I do so I decided to make you all happy and post my first one of the season. 😊
Beautiful, isn’t it!?!
