My True North

Today’s card uses every product in the Come Sail Away Suite except the Smooth Sailing Dies.  Stampin’ Up! does an awesome job putting together their product suites and I’m glad that I purchased this one.


The lighthouse silhouette from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack takes center stage on my card.  If you haven’t noticed these Memories & More Card Packs, they really do deserve a look.  There are so many interesting pieces that make card making easy and stretch your creativity.

  • The card size is 6 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ and was dictated by the size of the lighthouse layover.
  • The next layer is Balmy Blue card stock measuring 6 1/8″ x 4 1/8″ that has been embossed with the High Seas 3D embossing folder.
  • Before adhering the lighthouse layer, I filled in the light with So Saffron card stock and parts of the lighthouse with Night of Navy card stock.  Then it was glued to the embossed piece.
  • The sentiment, from Sailing Home stamp set, was stamped in Night of Navy ink and matted on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock. I popped it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I wrapped a piece of Baker’s Twine with an anchor trinket from the Sail Away Trinkets. I love these little added details!

  • The envelope is from my stash and is embellished with a pattern from the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper collection and Night of Navy card stock.

I had a lot of fun creating this card and I’m excited to continue creating with this fabulous suite of products.  Hopefully, you’ll Come Sail Away with me again soon!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a fabulous week.  I’m heading down to Maryland this week to spend a few days with my Stamping Sisters and cannot wait. Karen is even coming from CA! I’m forever grateful to Stampin’ Up! for bring me together with these fun and fabulous girls! Best.Decision.Ever.

  1. Aw, thanks for the mention, Rosanne! I’m so excited to be coming east to visit all of you. It will be a highlight of my year (and this has been an eventful year!) You have convinced me that I need this – whole – suite! You are the first one I’ve seen that has mentioned the great card pack that comes in it. Makes for such an interesting and different card. Gotta have it! See you soon!

  2. Beautiful card, Rosanne. The lighthouse light is so perfect with the sentiment. Enjoy your week!

  3. Roxanne,
    What a beautiful card. Bought the whole bundle, but have not used the cards. Love this Lighthouse. Went to Maine a few years ago and took lots of pictures of different Lighthouses around the New England area. I can really use this bundle for my scrapbooking pictures. Just loved your card. Thanks for sharing.

  4. This is such a pretty card! I love it! So much fun this week with you all. Can’t wait to have you join us for classes in September.
