Global Navigator - Stampin' Up! Going Global

  I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend!  I had lots of time in the stamp room but not too much creating...I was cutting cardstock for my class on Tuesday.  I prepared 84 card packets!  My paper trimmer certainly got a good workout.  I look forward to sharing the 3 projects later this week after the group gets to stamp them.

  I made this neutral toned card a few weeks back when I was playing around with the Going Places suite.  I like the different sayings as well as the image stamps.  They can be mixed and matched and are perfect for a lot of guy cards.

  This card was made with my husband in mind.  I would literally be lost without him!  Without a doubt he is the navigator in our family.  He gets us places without getting lost or can find his way around a new place after looking at a map once.  Me....well lets just say I have been known to take the long way around from time to time and not on purpose!  I call it getting to know the area and having an adventure!

  I got busy with heat embossing on this card.  I did the globe in clear embossing powder onto Sahara Sand cardstock and the compass in black embossing powder on Very Vanilla cardstock.  Both circles are layered with dimensionals.

  The background is stamped with the Big Dipper (or is it Little Dipper??  My husband would probably know that too!) and a strip of Going Places DSP.  

  I added a few touches of gold with Gold Glimmer paper mini stars made from the Stars border punch and gold threaded baker's twine.  I also colored over some of the little stars in the background with the gold Wink of Stella pen.

  Enjoy the start of your week! 

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
