Two More from Sail Away

Welcome back.  This is the final post in my Come Sail Away series.  Monday I featured three cards of various sizes using the Memories & More card pack that is available with this suite.  Wednesday I featured a cute box made from some Sail Away paper.  If you would like to see those posts again (or for the first time) You can see those posts

Here…Monday's Post 

And Here…Wednesday's Post 

Today I’m sharing two more companion cards I made with another of the Memories & More card pack and some other items from this suite.

Hello Friend

I used one of the laser cut papers from the Memories & More card pack for this card and the next.  I didn’t want the whole piece, as that would make my card over 6 inches tall and not fit in a standard sized envelope so I cut the laser cut in half.  Here you can see the other half that I didn’t use.

I used a sponge dauber with Mossy Meadow ink to color the laser cut paper.  I didn’t want it the same everywhere so a dab dab dabbed, concentrating the ink coverage on the border

First for the card base background.  On a Balmy Blue I used the edge of my Balmy Blue ink pad and swiped it randomly over the card stock. I cut out two pieces of the seaweed both from the same piece of Sail Away Designer Series Paper but I flipped one over so both sides would show, and they would be going in different directions.

The Hello Friend is a sticker from the card pack.  I layered it over one of the Stitched Nested Labels, another new product coming in June.  A final touch with the Navy and Sahara Sand Bakers Twine also from the suite.

Let Hope Be Your Anchor

When I was making the Hello Friend card I used a sponge dauber with Mossy Meadow ink to color the laser cut paper.  You never want to waste a good mask so while I was doing that I layered it on top of a Whisper White Card Base.  I cut out the seaweed die using a piece of the Sail Away DSP.  The sentiment was stamped on one of the stickers from the card pack.  The rope and anchor and flag are also stickers.  I put a piece of sahara sand cut with the frame die for added lift under the sentiment.

I hope you have enjoyed my Come Sail Away series of projects this week.  Stop in next week to see another new suite of projects and start imagining all you can do. 

Happy Stamping,
