Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop | Come Sail Away Suite

Hello there stamping friends! Welcome to this months Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop. We are focusing on the amazing Come Sail Away Suite from the new 2019 - 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. The products of this suite can be found on pg.145 in the new catalogue.

Whether you're sailing home or going off to new adventures, products in the Come Sail Away Suite will inspire you on your journey. These products are perfect for the sailing enthusiast or the boatie in your life. I'm just loving all the blues and greens in this suite and the gorgeous
Night Of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker's Twine and the Sail Away Trinkets are a fabulous addition to the DSP and stamp set.

I've made three projects for you today, 2 cards and 1 decorated mini pizza box, with some fabulous ways to use the coordinating Come Sail Away Memories and More card pack and lots of fun layering of die cuts, DSP and embellishments and trim.

My first card uses the Night of Navy Striped DSP as the main focal point and then die cut the Stitched Rectangle dies in the DSP to create a soft and subtle frame. I've tried to created a sailing scene in the stitched circle. Using one of the laser cut sheets from the Memories and More Card pack that looks like 'waves' and 'water' and used that as the water in my little scene. 

Using the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker's twine I tied a 'sailors' knot and then added some layers of the seaweed looking dies and the anchor from the Sailing Away Trinkets. Combined with that is some of the 1/4" Copper trim. Cut the copper trim 'open' down one edge and then pull it open and it looks like fishing netting.

How fresh does this DSP look with the Balmy Blue stripes?  I love the soft look that this blue gives to the project. Again I've used another laser cut sheet from the Memories and More card pack and layered that on a die cut circle of Balmy Blue. Again combined with some of the Copper Trim 'netting' and some layering of the die cuts, Baker's Twine and the trinkets.

The 'Celebrate' and 'Today' are stickers from the Memories and More card pack. Not only are these card packs fabulous for memory keeping but they are fantastic to use on your cards to quickly put something together that looks amazing!

My last project is my decorated mini pizza box. I've made a belly band for the box so all the layers and embellishments are attached to the band for easy removal when opening the box. I've gone with more of the green tones that are also in the DSP and coordinated my box to that.

Again I've used the Copper 'netting' for this project, it really does look fabulous layered under all the elements and really adds to the whole nautical feel. Most of the layered elements are more stickers from the Memories and More card pack and when teamed with the die cut pieces the projects really comes together quickly.

I hope that I've given you some inspiration with this suite today.I really love that my projects really focus on the colours in the suite and that they show you can make the layered/avid projects using the elements from the Come Sail Away Memories and More card pack.
