Sail Away With Me

Posted on

I hosted a Stampin’ Up workshop at my house last Saturday and it was a lot of fun! It was funny to watch all of the newbies using stamps and punches for the first time. Two of my friends kept saying “This is really stressful” but, in the end, they enjoyed themselves. My friend Penny (one of the stressed out stampers) even ordered a set of stamps and markers.

Now that my workshop order has been processed I am obsessed with tracking it on UPS. The packaged has moved from Utah to Colorado in 12 hrs and it won’t be here for another 96 hours!

On the other hand, my digital stamp order came 30 seconds after I purchased it and I have already made some cards with one. I used the Sail Away digital brush stamp to make some masculineĀ  birthday cards. The Define Your Life digital set came in handy too, for a great sentiment.

I printed the sailboat and “happy” sentiment on heavyweight card stock. Then I used Stampin’ Up ink to sponge the sky and water as well as the sails. The background flags are just hand cut from colored card stock with a small pearl embellishment glued to each one. Viola! A card for your man or for a female marine biologist.

Paper crafting is my Yoga. It takes my mind off any stress that I might have at the time. My daughter loves to get involved in my projects too and it is a great way to connect with her. Sixteen years ago I began scrapbooking but, my new true love is card making!
