Let’s Set Sail

Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail stamp set is another new set from the upcoming Mini Catalogue (available 4th January 2022), and I have used it for a very simple single layer card, inspired by the latest TGIF challenge, using the Masking Technique.

Masking is such a great technique and one that I haven’t used in a while. For my card I have used the reverse masking technique to create the sun.

I have cut out a circle using one of the Tasteful Label dies, out of a piece of scrap paper.

I’ve then placed the piece of scrap paper over my Basic White card base in the position I want the sun to be, then sponged using Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight inks.

Then I have just removed the scrap paper mask, and stamped the images where I wanted them.

I’m not too happy with my splodgy ink on the sails of the boat, but not to worry, I guess they are wet from sailing!!
Happy stamping!

Sweet Sailing Kitties

A quick post today to share a giggle… This is the card I made for my son for Christmas. Since he loves to sail, it had to have sailing boats included….

We have three cats, a big part of our family, who we both adore, so the kitty faces from Sweet Little Stockings was another obvious choice. Combine the two things and our three rascal cats are sailing with their Santa hats on. I had some fun creating this one.

The proportions are not quite right but its pretty cute anyway.

In the background, the water is the new Gentle Waves background stamp, and the boats from the Let’s Set Sail stamp set and matching punch, all available from the 4th January 2022 in the new Mini Catalogue.

The kitties and their hats were coloured with the Stampin’ Up! Watercolour pencils.

Happy stamping!
