World Traveler …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share with you one of the masculine cards that we made at our Spring Stampin’ Retreat. I got the idea from a couple of cards I found on Pinterest and combined them into this card!


To create the card I used a bit of everything from the “Going Places” product suite.  I started with the Going Places cardstock pack and embossed with the World Traveler Embossing Folder.

Once we embossed the cardstock with the World Traveler … we cut it along the equator line to split the cardstock and have our Going Places Designer Paper show through. The embossed cardstock was popped up to create some fun dimension and really highlight the designer paper.

We sponged area’s on the map and compass along with the inside of our card to age it a bit.


We then stamped our compass with the Going Global stamp set both on the Lost Lagoon and Very Vanilla cardstocks. They were punched out and layered to create even more dimension. We created a focal point by adding the “Antique Brad” into the center.

To complete the card we added our “banner” greeting with the words from the Going Global stamp set and the Banner Punch. It was a big hit at retreat!


Thank you for joining me today …

I hope your day is blessed with kindness and beauty.


Product Highlights for Today’s Card …


Simply Sunday: The World to Me

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a quick -n- easy card that your man would love to receive, whether that man is your husband, father, brother or son … everyone loves to hear what they mean to their loved ones.

Today’s card begins with the “Going Global” stamp set from the Going Places product suite. A product suite is a group of products that were made to coordinate with each other. Don’t let that stop you though … this grouping goes well with some of the great stamp sets in the annual catalog as well.


My base is Lost Lagoon from the Going Places Cardstock pack (those these) and what I used with the World Traveler Embossing Folder.

The globe was stamped with Delightful Dijon and the greeting in Lost Lagoon.  I have listed the punches that I used below. These were layered onto a strip of the Going Places Designer Series Paper stack and the gold ribbon.

It all comes together so easily and the greeting just pops off the textured background when highlighted by our Dijon globe. Where did I get the idea to use the Delightful Dijon? The coordinating designer paper … Stampin’ Up! takes all the guess work out of coordinating.


Thank you for taking time out of your Sunday to visit …

Have a wonderful rest of your day.
