Sailing Home Nautical Card by Secrets To Stamping

Happy Little Stampers Die Challenge starts a new challenge today – “Anything Goes with Dies.” Since Stampin’ Up! is retiring the 2020 Annual Catalog and coming out with a new one in May, I was going through all of my stamps to organize them. When I came to Sailing Home, I realized how much I love this bundle and needed to get it inky. My family loves the ocean so this “all occasion” card will be perfect.

Once you are finished here, I hope you visit our Happy Little Stampers Die Challenge Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along!

My secrets to making this project

  • Firstly, this A6 card started with Pool Party cardstock, cut at 6 1/2″ x 9″ and scored at 4 1/2.”
  • After that, I cut the Whale Of A Time DSP and Whisper White cardstock to 4 1/8″ x 5 7/8″. Then, I cut an oval out of the WW layer and dry embossed it with the Seabed embossing folder for a little texture.
  • Pretty Peacock cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 6″ to layer it under the Whisper White cardstock and DSP.

Now, the FUN Part!

  • Firstly, I stamped the lighthouse and sailboats in Pretty Peacock ink, then cropped out with their coordinating dies. In order to give the lighthouse a little more dimension, I cut out two more with scrap cardstock and glued them all together.
  • After that, I stamped the sentiment and cropped it out with the retired 1 3/8″ circle punch and layered it onto the Pretty Peacock die in the Smoothly Sailing collection.
  • Then, to anchor it to the card front, I also cut Pool Party cardstock with the rope die, taped it to the back of the sentiment and glued it to the card.
  • Finally, a few rhinestones added a touch of bling that my husband won’t mind at all!


Whether you’re sailing home or going off to new adventures, the images and sentiments in the Sailing Home Stamp Set will inspire you on your journey. Also available in French. Quantity: 12 cling stamps
