Stampin’ Up! Going Global for the Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop



I used the upcoming stamp set, Going Global, from the Stampin’ Up! 2016 Occasions Catalog for my card for the Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop today.

The globe shape was punched from the Going Places DSP with my 2″ Circle punch and layered onto two other coordinating panels from the same DSP with Dimensionals.  The sentiment banner was stamped with Basic Black onto a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and also popped up on one end with Dimensionals.  The opposite end was snailed to part of the globe.

A panel of Basic Black cardstock was dry embossed with the Lucky Stars TIEF and glued to the Delightful Dijon card base.  The entire art panel was then popped onto the front with Dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I chose Watercolor Words for the sentiment


Going Global and Watercolor Words Card-iology by JariI stamped with Gorgeous Grunge to create a sort of “galaxy” with Basic Black ink, onto a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.   Then, I stamped the sentiment from  Watercolor Words, in Basic Black.  The stars were punched from Gold Foil with the Itty Bitty star Accent Punch and attached with glue dots. I glued the sentiment panel onto a panel of Basic Black and then that panel was also glued to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
