Set Sail

Good Morning and Welcome today to my Blog.

It’s a beautiful morning here in Moss Vale, NSW. A lovely winters day…

In the last couple of day’s I have been working with a new stamp from Stampin’ Up! ® called Camouflage152547  and teamed it up with Sailing Home 149457.

When I saw this I new I had to get it and make a card for my son, who is in the Australian Defence Force. Not often do I find something that suits him compared to my other sons. This card is nearly all in gray as the Navy camo colours are gray with some black in it. Instead of using black I have used Night of Navy and a touch of gold because he is an Officer. So I hope he likes this card…its not a birthday or for anything special event.I just want to write him so he knows he is always in our thoughts.

This card has a lot of texture using the Subtles 3D Embossing Folder, torn and inked edges,  layers of die cuts from the Smooth Sailing Dies and the Stitched Shapes -Oval.

How to Stamp these Images..

When stamping this card I used the Stamparatus – Stampin’ Up! ® positioning tool as it allowed me to stamp this image a few times.

*Hint – before using the stamp clean it a couple of times with the Stampin’ Scrub and Stampin’ Mist. Being a large all over stamp I found I was getting a good clean image. Sometimes residue from the manufacturing can still be on the stamp and the small bush bristles on the Stampin’ Scrub can get in a clean them off.

The Stamparatus also enables you to stamp multiple images going down the page because of there hinged system. I had to play with NO INK to make sure I had the stamp in the correct position, when I had that sorted I could move the plate down two hinge notches and re-stamp having everything lined up just right.

The Stamparatus is one of those MUST HAVE tools.
