Today’s project was a Make & Take at Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event in April. It’s a Note Card & Envelope decorated with the new Come Sail Away Suite. I made mine a little differently from the original, which had a swash of blue ink on the Watercolor Paper background. Since I didn’t want to wait for the Aqua Painter to make its way around the table, I left that off. I think it’s fine without it. How about you?

Let hope be your anchor through the storms of life. The sentiment on this card is perfect for so many occasions. From giving advice to people starting out on a new adventure like graduation or wedding, and comfort to people experiencing loss.


Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 3-1/2″ x 5″ (blue stripe)
  • DSP cut to 3″ x 4-1/4″ (brown print) 
  • Watercolor Paper cut to 2-3/4″ x 4″

Stamped with the Sailing Home stamp set:

  • compass in Crumb Cake ink onto the Watercolor Paper
  • compass in Crumb Cake ink onto the front of a Very Vanilla Note Card Envelope
  • lighthouse in Night of Navy ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS
  • sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto a scrap of Balmy Blue CS

Die cut using the Smooth Sailing Dies:

  • sentiment and lighthouse
  • helm from a scrap of Crumb Cake CS
  • rope from a scrap of Soft Suede CS

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the Very Vanilla Note Card base with a Bone Folder
  • blue striped DSP glued onto the front of the note card base
  • brown DSP glued onto the blue striped DSP
  • Watercolor Paper glued onto the brown DSP
  • die cut rope glued onto the brown DSP along the bottom of the Watercolor Paper
  • sentiment, lighthouse, and helm glued together, then adhered onto the Watercolor Paper using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • twine tied through an anchor trinket, and the ends tied in knots
  • trinket and twine adhered onto the popped up pieces using Mini Glue Dots
