Lighthouse on the horizon

Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which features the new Lighthouse Point Bundle and Deckled Rectangles Dies from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog, paired with the On the Horizon Bundle and the New Horizons 6” x 6” DSP from the January – June 2022 Mini Catalog! With all the new products in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog, where do you start?? For me, it’s what “speaks” to me and the Lighthouse Point Bundle is right at the top! Not only do you have a stamp set that you can build your scenery, but you have 11 amazing dies that coordinate! For my first card with this bundle, I thought I would show you how easy it is to make a card using the dies and pairing them with the fun New Horizons Suite!

The base layer is Basic White cardstock, which I used the largest Deckled Rectangle die to die-cut out and embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. The next layer is this design from the New Horizons DSP, which I used the second largest Deckled Rectangle die to die-cut out:

For the rest of the card front, you will need:

1. Using the large lighthouse outline die, die-cut from Basic Gray cardstock.

2. Using the large, detailed lighthouse die, place some adhesive sheet on the back of a piece of Basic White cardstock and die-cut out.

3. Using the small, detailed rectangle die, place some adhesive sheet on the back of a piece of mirrored foil Silver Foil Specialty Pack.

4. Use the two background dies from the Horizon Dies to die-cut from Vellum cardstock.

To build the lighthouse, remove the adhesive backing from the Basic White cardstock die-cut and adhere to the Basic Gray lighthouse outline die-cut, and then remove the adhesive backing from the small silver foil die-cut and adhere to the lighthouse as shown:

The card base is Night of Navy cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”, the two die-cut base layers are adhered to the card front, place some adhesive on the back of the lighthouse to adhere the two vellum die-cuts as shown, and then adhere this piece to the layered base layers, snipping the excess vellum cardstock off:

For the inside, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment from On the Horizon in Night of Navy ink, and adhere a ¾” x 4” strip of DSP along the bottom:

For the coordinating Basic White Medium Envelope, I stamped the lighthouse on the front in Night of Navy ink and adhered the left-over strip of DSP to the envelope flap, trimming off the excess along the sides:

This card is all about the die-cutting, which was super easy to make! This really was the perfect card for me to make since I’ve been down with a sinus infection the last week and a half, which is why I have been a little MIA! While I’m not completely over it, each day is a little bit better and after my order arrived, it was time to spend a little “creative therapy” in my craft room!

Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
