Hello and welcome to the May All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team blog hop!

We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who prepare 12 tutorials each month and collate them into one fabulous tutorial bundle. Here are the designers for February to July 2019.

FEb to Jul 2019 Designers

Here is a little sneak peek of the tutorials for this month.

Isn’t this a pretty graphic this month … such bright and fun projects. All the tutorials feature current product or upcoming new product. There are a couple of early looks at some new stamp sets and dies.
– Lots of gift packaging options.
– Emma has created a card using the Everything is Rosy Product Medley.
– Lots of great card ideas.
– As always, there are step by step instructions with loads of pics.

The Tutorial Bundles are based on currently available and upcoming supplies from Stampin’ Up! and have both metric and imperial (inches) measurements. So no matter where you live in the world, you can purchase the tutorial and will be able to create the projects.

Sailing Home Stamp Set

I have used the Sailing Home Stamp Set (available in June 2019 when the new 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! catalogue comes out) for my tutorial this month and created a card that is suitable for males and females alike. Here is a sneak peek to whet your appetite.

And the two cards featured on my blog today highlight this great bundle but are very different cards to my project tutorial. Both of these projects were part of my display board at Auckland Onstage Event in April.

They are technique heavy … and while my tutorial in the bundle this month does feature some technique, it is an intermediate level project … easy to re-create with lots of step by step pics.

Silhouette Sail Boats

This one uses the stamp set only and features some masking and lots (and lots) of sponging! Don’t worry, my tutorial doesn’t include any sponging!! Well, maybe just the tiniest bit of very easy sponging! I promise! 🙂

The sailing boats are an open line drawing image, and once coloured up with a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker or a Stampin’ Blend, they make a great silhouette image. Add a little bit of White Craft Ink applied with a Blender Pen for some moonlit shimmer on the water!

Come Sail Away Bundle

And my second project features the Smooth Sailing dies and the Sailing Home Stamp Set. These come bundled at a 10% discount, or why not get the entire suite and be totally co-ordinated with Designer Series Paper, Trinkets and Baker’s Twine.

With this one, the ombre sky background through the porthole has been brayered, and then the ocean sponged over the top. Can you tell I like sponging a lot! 🙂
The sailing boat was stamped over the top … which of course means you see the background colour through the open lines of the boat image. Not very desireable! So I coloured the sails and hull with White Craft Ink applied with an old, dried up Blender Pen, and I love the result (and this also vindicates my “never throw anything away because you might need it someday” mentality).

The anchor is originally silver. Coloured up with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend makes it bronzed and older looking! And the little porthole bolts are the Metallic Pearls, coloured up with Basic Black Stampin’ Blends.

This is such an amazing bundle to create with! These two projects are created with the Avid Crafter in mind. Remember that my tutorial project is more suited to the Casual Crafter and has step by step images to make creating easy.

Here is the list of all the designer’s blogs, check them all out for more great examples of the Tutorial Bundle Design Team’s work.

  • Absolutely love the sailboat card – any tips on how you created it? Would love to CASE it!

    • Thanks Susan, Case away! 🙂 I basically masked off the sky area and sponged in water. Then reversed the mask and brayered the sky area with Daffodil Delight. Then I apply a circle mask where the setting sun would be. The sky area then sponged with oranges, blues and greens.
      The sail boats stamped over the top and coloured with Black Stampin’ Blend. I added white highlights with Whisper White Craft Ink and an old dried out Blender Pen.
