Come Sail Away! It’s All About Men Glitter Queens’ Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Blog Hop!

I love that our theme this month is around stamping for the men in our lives! We celebrated my dad’s 80th birthday last week. (this post is not his card -wink) And HE keeps all the cards I make for him. So we know our creations are special to the guys too!

Today I have a coordinating card and gift box for you featuring products found in the Come Sail Away Suite of products.

Product List

For the card: Measurements –

  • Sahara Sand Cardbase 4-1/4″ x 11″
  • Night of Navy 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ & 4″ x 1/4″
  • Come Sail Away 4″ x 5-1/4″ & 4″ x 1-1/4″  with scrap to make the DAD

General Instructions:

  •  With the 2-1/4″ Circle Punch, punch out a circle with the Designer Paper. Cut in half. These are the “D”s.
  •  Cut a 2-1/4″ tall triangle. The base is 1-1/2″. What I did is cut a 2-1/4 x 1-1/2 rectangle. Along the 1-1/2 side, marked the half way point or 3/4. That is the top point of triangle and cut to the bottom. The triangle is the “A”
  •  With a sponge dauber, use Sahara Sand ink to ink around the edges of DAD. Crinkle the letters for added texture.

  •  Add the Designer paper to the Night of Navy layer. Add the 1/4″ strip of Night of Navy.
  •  Add the coordinating baker’s twine from the suite.
  •  Adhere to cardbase. Add DAD with dimensional foam dots.
  •  Stamp inside.

For box: Measurements:

  • Outside
    •  Night of Navy 3″ x 3″
    •  Designer Paper 2-7/8″ x 2-7/8″
  • Inside
    • Night of Navy 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″
    • Designer Paper 3-1/8″ x 3-1/8″

General Instructions:

  •  With brayer and Night of Navy and Balmy Blue ink, brayer the MAT side of the mini pizza box. The boxes have a waxy or shiny side and a mat side. TIP start with lighter color when inking this way. So start with the Balmy Blue then brayer with Night of Navy.
  •  Stamp images from Sailing Home using Night of Navy ink and Sahara Sand Cardstock. I used ink left on the brayer to lightly bray images. Die cut images with coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies ( Save 10% when you order the bundle.)
  •  Add cardstock and designer paper layers together and tie baker’s twine around layers. Glue to box.
  •  Add images with dimensional foam dots.
  • Add Sail Away Trinket.

  •  Inside: Stamp sentiment directly on designer paper. Add cardstock and designer paper layers to inside lid.
  •  Add compose element (punched out with 1-1/2″ circle punch) with dimensional.

I hope you enjoyed my projects for you!

Father’s Day Gift Pouch and Gift Card Holder


Hi Everyone! The guys in our lives need pretty packaging too! (I don't think they would admit it, but we know they like it!
Here's a little Father's Day package that holds his favorite homemade treats, candies, or other small gifts. Plus room for a gift card. I used the Island Oasis desinger paper along with Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White. I used the sentiments from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and the following tools: Punches – scallop, 1 3/8" circle, 1" circle,slit, word window and modern label. I used my crimper fo the belly band. Sizes of paper used:
1/2" x 8 1/2" old olive for the belly band., 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" old olvie for the pouch.Scraps of designer paper, old olive, pumpkin pie and whisper white.Old Olive ink.

P1030810 If you want a wider, squattier pounch, fold the top all the way down until it meets the bottom. (This make sense when you watch video.) I trim off the tip so it doesn't overhang. The wider versions are nice when you have a little more goodies you want to gift. I wanted to show you the two looks. Any square size will work. The 12 x 12 are nice when you have a little bigger gift. I've made as small as a 4×4, which is too cute and holds one piece of candy.

Happy Crafting! Dee 
For the gift card holder, cut a piece of pumpkin pie at 3" x 5 1/4"

Score at 3".
