Going Global - A Sneak Peek

Time for another Sneak Peek from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue! (I can't believe I'm typing 2016!) I was thrilled to find another great masculine suite of products in it. Last year's Occasions catty had Guy Greetings which I used extensively, and I can tell that this set, Going Global*, is going to get the same kind of work out!

If you know me, you know that I love making masculine cards. I love the neutrals, the metallics, the blues and greys, the textures and the rustic look! This card came together easily using the products from the Going Global Suite*.

  • The Stamp Set, Going Global* is the main feature of the set. The great thing is, I can see it working well with other masculine stamps like Traveler and Guy Greetings and The Open Sea. The compass, globe and stars will be a great addition. The sentiments are great for guys as well.
  • The background Designer Series Paper is from the Going Places Designer Series Paper Stack*, a great deal for 48 six by six double sided sheets. It has maps, schematics, patterns and some marbleized designs. You see a sheet of it in the background.
  • Then there is the World Traveler Textured Impressions Embossing Folder*. You can get the embossed design of a world map in a Mercator projection. For this card, I embossed a sheet of Lost Lagoon cardstock, sponged it with Soft Suede and used the splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge to add some Soft Suede Splatter.
  • You can see the details of the compass stamp a little better in this photo, as I stamped it in Versamark ink and embossed it with my homemade concoction of equal parts Gold and Silver Stampin' Emboss Powders to get a kind of pewter look.
*These products are found in the 2016 Occasions Catalogue and will be available to order on Jan. 5, 2016.

Weren't you just saying that Stampin' Up! needed another sale because they just haven't had enough lately? I know, right? They must have heard that conversation, because they just restocked the Clearance Rack with products from the current Holiday Catalogue! This one took me completely by surprise! There are savings of up to 60% off. Of course, if it's on the Clearance Rack, it's only while supplies last, so you have to act fast! You can place an order on your own with this link. Or send me an email with your order!


I am done classes now for December and will be working on my class schedule for the New Year! I am looking for some input from customers and hope you can leave a comment with suggestions! Would you like some Quick and Cute Classes again? How about a Design 101 class, or a Beginner's Class. Is there anyone who would like to form a Big Shot Club to earn a Big Shot with 6 easy payments? Please leave a comment to let me know.
