At our Stampin’ Sisters Retreat we started out the morning on Saturday with this great set of masculine cards featuring the Going Global stamp set. Everyone received a bag with all of the parts and pieces for making the cards as well as a package of Linen Thread and Neutral Candy Dots to take home.
The compass image takes center stage on this card when it’s layered with circles cut out with the Circle Framelits. I also love the use of the Washi Label Punch for the sentiment.
The fact that so many of the Stampin’ Up! products coordinate (like the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder, and the Confetti Stars Punch) made creating this card a piece of cake.
The use of the Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack gave a bold background image while the World Traveler Embossing Folder added texture to this card.
The star of this card has to be the layered star cut out with the Big Shot and the Star Framelits. We turned it into a shooting star by adding the “tail” of ribbon to it.
This card keeps it simple by focusing on the sentiment which was “fussy” cut by hand and then layered on a piece of Lost Lagoon card stock which was punched out with the Sweetheart Punch.
The layers of labels were cut out with the Lots of Labels Framelits but what I love best about this card is the banner. The full image was stamped once on the Sahara Sand label and then again on a piece of Hello Honey card stock. We “fussy” cut the banner out and attached it on top of the Sahara Sand label with Stampin’ Dimensionals to make it pop.
Tomorrow we’re on to project 3 which is a set of “White in White” cards I think you’re really going to like. See you then!
