New Catalog Launch and Sailing Home

Hello! I am so over the moon excited that I can't even contain myself! I LOVE new catalog time. It's always fresh and new and open to amazing ideas and creativity! So, today marks the day, the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog officially launches to everyone world wide and trust me, if you haven't had a peek into the covers of this gorgeous catalog, you MUST take a look inside. Here's the electronic downloadable version for you to peruse through. Pretty awesome eh?

So, as you know, one of the awesome perks of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is that I get to order select product ahead of time from the new catalog, and one of those products was the Sailing Home bundle. This bundle is UH-MAZING to say the least! I have had so much fun playing with all of this awesomeness, I can't even begin to describe. So, one of the fun cards I came up with and shared during Facebook Live Sunday, was this fun "Half Door" fold card.
It's pretty simple actually. I started with a standard card base measuring 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored and folded at 4 1/4" in Basic Black. I then removed a 2" x 4 1/4" strip from the card front using my trimmer. This created the "half door" and I ran it through my die cutting/embossing machine using the Swirls & Curls embossing folder to create some fun texture that kind of reminded me of crashing waves. I then layered a piece of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper cut at 4" x 5 1/4" on the inside. I then took a piece of Whisper White measuring 3" x 4" and stamped the compass image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Basic Gray ink and the sentiment, "Your My True North" in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and adhered that to the center inside of the card. Then, using my paper snips, I marked the center of the compass on the "half door" and using the 1 1/2" Circle Punch, I punched a small "bite" from the "half door" card front to allow the entire compass to show on the card front. I then stamped the sentiment onto a piece of scrap Whisper White and die cut it using my die cutting machine and the coordinating label die from the Smooth Sailing die collection and adhered it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish the card, I wrapped the "half door" with Whisper White Bakers Twine about 3 times and added the anchor from the adorable Sail Away Trinkets and tied a bow. I just love how this card turned out and I hope you do too. If you would like to see how this card was made, check out my video on Facebook and be sure to join me every Sunday evening at 7 PM ET for a fun evening of stamping and prize patrols. Now who doesn't love prize patrol? Unfortunately, only residents of the US are eligible to win prizes. And while you're there, be sure to "Like" my page.

Happy Stamping,
