Stampin’ UP! Come Sail Away Sneak Peek!

Good morning!  Have you been scouring the Retiring List?  Making sure you’ve grabbed up your favorites?  Are you one of those folks who does NOT own Lovely as a Tree – and figured it would “be available forever and ever and no need to buy it now!”??  Well…uhm…yea.  That’s not happening!  So…don’t assume your faves will always be here – get them NOW!  Just sayin’!

As the old and wonderful get ready to take their swan song, the NEW and wonderful are waiting in the wings to WOW you!  One of those is the new Come Sail Away Suite that I demo’d this past weekend.  I thought I’d show one of those samples to you today – in a little more detail – so that you can get a really good look at the Sailing Home stamp set and Smooth Sailing Dies – all available to customers on 4 Jun!  Take a look-see:

This one is easier to make than you might think – so…here we go! 🙂

I started with a piece of Night of Navy card stock and the Seaside TIEF (which is on the Retiring List, folks – so….be sure you get it before you can’t!).  With my Craft Whisper White Ink Pad, I swiped across the DEBOSSING side of the TIEF – so the indented side.  I made sure I had good coverage then carefully placed the Night of Navy panel in the folder and ran it thru the Big Shot.  When it came out – boom!!  Instant “water” – which I enhanced even more by brushing Clear Wink of Stella over the raised “waves”.

I matted the panel on Sahara Sand to create the card front.

Next up, using the grasses die in the new Smooth Sailing Dies – available on 4 June! – I cut one from Old Olive and two from Mossy Meadow.  These I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue – only at the bottom of the die cuts, letting the tops sort of “float”.  See what I did there? 😉

I did the same with a grass die cut from Vellum card stock – did you hear me mention on the demonstration that there is COLORED Vellum in the new 20190-2020 Annual Catalog?  Yep – it’s in the Perennial Essence Vellum pack 12″ x 12″ sheets in Old Olive, Petal Pink and So Safffron!  Whoo-hooo!

The anchor, from the Sailing Home stamp set, is stamped in Sahara on Whisper White and cut with the matching die from the Smooth Sailing Die set.  I used a length of the new Night of Navy & Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine (part of the Suite and coming on 4 June), looped it thru the top of the die cut anchor, tied a knot and then adhered the anchor on with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Sailing Home sentiment in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White, cut it out with the label die in Smooth Sailing, and popped it over all the sea grass and anchor with Dimensionals.

Some Pearl Basic Jewels scattered here and there finished off the card front!

On the inside, on a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the anchor in Sahara Sand.  Then, I used my Sponge Daubers and the card stock “stencils” created when I cut the grasses for the card front! – to sponge some grass on and around the anchor in Old Olive and Mossy Meadow.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Sahara Sand mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

I repeated the Sailing Home/Smooth Sailing stamping and stencil sponging on the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope…

…and then I stamped the anchor onto the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How excited are you about this Come Sail Away Suite?!?  This product suite has so many good elements in it – and it’s going to be an awesome tool for all your crafting needs – especially for creating those frequently-problematic masculine cards.  I hope you like – and have now written this suite down as one of your first purchases when the new catty comes out in June!  Unless you want it RIGHT NOW.  I can help you with that!  Give me a shout! 🙂

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!!

Carryover Clear-Mount and Wood-Mount Stamps

The lists sort of make it look like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired – but that is not the case.  Rather, the stamp sets currently offered in clear-mount or wood-mount (in the 2018–2019 Annual Catalog), that ARE carrying over – are simply being transitioned to Cling Mount.

These transition sets that will be in the 2019–2020 annual catalog –  will continue to be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).  If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Click here to see the list of stamp sets that ARE carrying over as Cling sets. 🙂

Any other stamp sets on the 2018-19 Annual Catalog retiring list that are NOT on this list will be retired.  Sorry again for the confusion!  Stampin’ Up! is aware of it and hopefully will be posting an updated list for us.

  1. Love this card. Sorry to see that embossing folder go, along with some other things. Lovely as a Tree? WAAAH! 🙁 However, this set/bundle/suite, whatever, is a MUST HAVE!
    Never woulda thunk to use the Craft White and Night of Navy. Way to go!

    • stampsnlingers

      I know – LAAT will be missed – but it’s space will be well-filled with new and beauteous goodies! Thanks very much, Julie! 🙂

  2. Such a beautiful card! I love your design and the colors are so perfect!! Great design! 🙂

  3. The first thing to pop into my head was “Come Sail Away” by Styx so I hope I have you humming that all day! Why? Because now you have me thinking about this suite until I can order it in May! I adore your card…you are very artistic, did you know that? You will undoubtedly deny that, but I speak the truth! Have fun playing with your new goods.

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks very much, Karen! I appreciate your kinds words. And…the ear worm you gave me! 😉

  4. Pat C.

    LOVE this card, Mary! I think I “need” this bundle!

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks, Pat – I think you NEED it, too! 🙂

  5. Kathy Fennell

    Beautiful card Mary! This will have to be one of those must haves come June! 🙂 God gifted you with many talents and one is your being so artistic. A stamp could have gone through a shredder and you would always find away to make it beautiful. I cant do that “BUT” I can case your creation! Great job my friend 🙂

    • stampsnlingers

      Thank you so much, Kathy! Your kind words mean a lot to me!! 🤗

  6. Gloria Sperring

    I wanted Sea of Textures, but now seeing part of this? I think I’ll wait till SU! sends me my first catalog with my first order coming up. I can hardly wait. I’m having computer problems, so I can NOT go online to see! See me cryin?

    • stampsnlingers

      It’s a pretty awesome set, for sure!! And – what a horrible time for computer problems!! 🙁
