Father's Day Blog Hop



Welcome everyone to the Father’s Day Blog Hop. I’m sure you enjoyed the fabulous project that our fabulous team leader Tami prepared for you today. Welcome to everyone who is joining me from Pam Nichols blog. If you are starting the blog hop with my post make sure to scroll to the bottom of my post to see all the awesome projects!


I have a project today made with one my favorite suites from new Annual Catalog – the Come Sail Away with the Sailing Home Stamp set, Smooth Sailing dies and Come Sail Away designer series paper.  I love the stamps, dies, designer series paper, baker’s twine and the metal embellishments that match the theme of the suite. I have always had a special place in my heart for lighthouse and nautical stamps - I have a huge stash!!  When we used this set as one of our samples at OnStage – I was doubly hooked. 



I used lots of new techniques and products on this card – I was so happy to go outside my box a bit… First I wanted to use Shimmer White Paper. I’ve heard great things about this specialty paper that has a shimmery finish and works better with watercolor techniques (more on that in a minute..).  It also has a shade between whisper white and very vanilla – an especially nice shade! I also really wanted to use my shimmery embossing paste. On top of that I tried the “cling wrap” technique – except I did it with bubble wrap… 3 new things all wrapped in one new card!


First I cut my Shimmery White to 4” x 5 ¼”, then I took just a left over plastic knife and spread the Shimmery embossing paste right on the card stock -I wanted to create a LOT of texture on my background.  I worked pretty quick because I wanted to have “fresh” (in other words sticky) embossing paste.  I took a left over bubble mailer from Amazon and I took several drops of reinkers (Balmy Blue, Night of Navy, Basic Grey, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Pacific Point) dropped directly on the packaging. I took the Shimmery White and placed it directly on the bubble mailer. If there was a large white spot on the paper, I just dipped it again.  I tried to place the darker colors of the reinkers at the top (Basic Grey, Pacific Point, Night of Navy), and the lighter colors (Coastal Cabana, Pool Party and Balmy Blue) at the bottom.  I tried a few different versions as you can see  - with more water or less water. I tried spritzing both the card base and the packaging, I think each has its own uses and I will make cards with all of them!
I created the other elements by stamping on crumb cake with early espresso for the lighthouse, and stamping off once or twice for the compass on a scrap of Shimmery White, with a full strength stamping  for the sentiment.  For both the helm and the roping detail, I cut it out with the coordinating dies and then sponged on early espresso with a sponge dauber. Finally, I added the fantastic new Night of Navy and Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine with the new metal embellishments, Sail Away trinket that coordinate with the suite. I really like how this turned out and I can not wait to try this technique again. Tell me which one of the backgrounds is your favorite and what you want me to make with them.



Bienvenidos todos al blog hop del día de los padres. Estoy seguro de que disfrutó del fabuloso proyecto que nuestro fabuloso líder del equipo Tami preparó para usted hoy. Bienvenido a todos los que se unen a mí desde el blog de Pam Nichols. Si usted está comenzando el blog hop con mi post asegúrese de desplazarse a la parte inferior de mi publicación para ver todos los proyectos impresionantes!


Tengo un proyecto hoy, que esta hecho con uno mis Suites favoritas de nuevo catálogo anual -el Come Sail Away suite, con los sellos de Sailing Home, los dies de Smooth Sailing y el papel de la serie de diseño Come Sail Away.  Me encantan los sellos, los troqueles, el papel de la serie de diseño, el cordel de Baker’s Twine y los adornos metálicos que coinciden con el tema de la Suite. Siempre he tenido un lugar especial en mi corazón para el faro y náuticasellos- Tengo un gran alijo!!  Cuando usamos este set como una de nuestras muestras en el escenario – estaba doblemente enganchada. 


Usé un montón de nuevas técnicas y productos en esta tarjeta-estaba tan contento de ir fuera de mi caja un poco... Primero quería usar el papel de Shimmer White. He oído grandes cosas  acerca de este papel especial que tiene un acabado brillante y funciona mejor con técnicas de acuarela (más sobre eso en un minuto..).  También tiene una sombra entre Whisper White y Very Vanilla-una sombra especialmente agradable! También quería usar mi Sparkling Embossing Paste. Además de eso probé la técnica de "cling wrap" – excepto que lo hice con Bubble wrape...y 3 cosas nuevas, todas envueltas en una nueva carta!


Primero corté mi Shimmery White a 4 "x 5 1/4", luego tomé sólo un cuchillo de plástico y esparqué la pasta de Embossing brillante justo en el papel de la tarjeta-quería crear mucha textura en mi fondo.  Trabajé bastante rápido porque quería tener "fresh" (en otras palabras Sticky) la pasta de Embossing.  Tomé una sobre de burbuja de Amazon que sobraba y tomé varias gotas de reinkers (Balmy Blue, Night of Navy, Basic Grey, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana y Pacific Point) cayó directamente en el envase. Tomé el Shimmery White y coloqué directamente en el sobre. Si había una gran mancha blanca en el papel, acabo de sumergir de nuevo.  Traté de colocar los colores más oscuros de los Reinkers en la parte superior (Basic Grey, Pacific Point, Night of Navy), y los colores más claros (Coastal Cabana, Pool Party y Balmy Blue) at el parte inferior.  Probé algunas versiones diferentes como puede ver- con más agua o menos agua. Intenté pulverizar tanto la base de la tarjeta como el empaque, Me piense que cada uno tiene sus propios usos y voy hacer tarjetas con todos ellos!


Creé los otros elementos estampando en el pastel de migaja con espresso temprano para el faro, y el estampado de una o dos veces para la brújula en un trozo de blanco brillante, con un estampado de fuerza completa para el sentimiento.  Tanto para el timón como para el detalle de Roping, lo corté con los troqueles de coordinación y luego me esponjoso en el espresso temprano con un Dauber esponja. Por último, agregué la fantástica noche nueva de la marina y del Sahara de arena de Baker con los nuevos adornos metálicos, baratija de distancia que se coordinan con la Suite. Realmente me gusta cómo resultó esto y yo no puedo esperar a probar esta técnica de nuevo. Dime cuál de los fondos es tu favorito y qué quieres que haga con ellos.
Now that you have some new ideas hopefully – its time to share last month’s luck winner: Congrats to Rita Turkowski!
