Just simply visit My Personal Online Store, log in as a customer, and enter item #152175 ~ that number will give you all the supplies in the Suite including the Stamp & Die Bundle at 10% off, plus the High Seas 3D Embossing folder (Which I haven’t been able to share with you due to it not being on our preorder list) Plus the Memory & More Card Pack which my project below is made from.

Now like mentioned above…todays card is made from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack. The white lazer cut card is from the pack of cards and I simply attached it to a card base. Then I die cut wheels from the Smooth Sailing Dies and glued them on. I added the clear droplets to the centers of each wheel. The sentiment is a die cut from the same bundle and the actual design on the label are stickers from the Memories & More Card Pack. NO STAMPING!!!! How quick and easy is that????

Have an amazing weekend my crafting family…Melanie

Focal Friday Is Back ~ Sketch

Hello My Lovely Friends,

I am back today to share a fun Focal Friday Card sketch. I would love to see what you make using this sketch. Make sure to share your projects on my Melanie Stamps Facebook Group

Above is the sketch used as inspiration for today’s project. Sometimes when your just out of ideas a sketch can keep you motivated. Try play around with it and see what you come up with…. here’s mine…

All the paper is from the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. Then I stamped and die cut the anchor using the Baker’s Twine which coordinates with the suite to tie onto the anchor. Stampin’ Dimensionals were used under the scalloped circle and anchor. Now lets see your project… Share HERE!

Throw Back Thursday ~ A Fusion of New with the old.

When looking through the new 2019/2020 Annual Stampin’ Up!® catalog I realized that there were a lot of current Stampin’ Up® stamp sets that I have not used to their full potential. Sets that are both in the previous catalog but that carried over into the new catalog. So I have decided to bring them out and fuse them together as I share new products each week.

I absolutely love the way this card turned out. I have used the Stitched Nested Labels Dies to create a frame of sorts. The water is created using the stamp from the Lillypad Lake stamp set. Don’t they work together nicely?

The sail boats in this set are just beautiful. I have stamped these in Momento Tuxedo Black inks then colored with Stampin’ Blends. Lastly I added Wink of Stella to the sails.

Here is the finished card up close. I used the Swirls and Curls embossing folder for the background along with some Silver Foil paper for the background just to add a little flare.
