Stamp Review Crew: Sailing Home Edition

A masculine card with a sailing theme! Batten down the hatches! It’s time for the Stamp Review Crew Sailing Home Edition!

It’s time for the Stamp Review Crew: Sailing Home Edition! If this is your very first visit to one of our hops, the Stamp Review Crew is a group of international Stampin’ Up! demonstrators whose mission is to do a blog hop on the first, third and fifth Mondays of each month. Our hops are unique because each of us features the same stamp set used in a variety of ways, giving you loads of inspiration for that set. The hops are archived at the Stamp Review Crew blog. You will be able to click through each hop at any time, going directly to the posts for that hop, whenever you want.

This week we are featuring the Sailing Home set. If you are following along in order, you have just arrived from the amazing Mary Haugen.  Mary’s work is always a favorite of mine!  After visiting me, you will continue to the next stop, the talented Charlet Mallett.  I loves what she does. Be prepared to be inspired as you travel along on today’s hop!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

As I have with some of my other cards, I let the designer paper dictate the stamped image and the sentiment. I stamped the compass in Night of Navy, and added a silver foil needle.   Old Olive vellum seaweed and a Crumb Cake rope die cut draw the eye in.
