CCMC406 Going Global

We have a very neutral based color challenge for you to try this week on Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!




Here’s my take using Going Global…one of the retiring stamp sets.  I’m bummed…it is so nice for making masculine cards!


CCMC406 Going Global


Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Crumb Cake folded in half.
  • On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic Gray.
  • The 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Whisper White is embossed with the World Traveler embossing folder (I really wish this would have stayed in the new catalog!)
  • Towards the bottom is a 1 x 5 strip of Neutrals Designer Paper Collection in the Crumb Cake polka dot pattern.
  • A 1/2 x 4 strip  of Smoky Slate is stamped with the World’s Best Dad greeting from Going Global (one of the reasons I like this stamp set so well is that it includes greetings!) in Basic Gray Ink.
  • The compass image from Going Global is stamped with Basic Gray, then colored with Smoky Slate and Crumb Cake Markers.
  • Some Silver Thread is wrapped in a circle and added behind the image.
  • A Silver sequin is placed in the center of the compass and some silver stars from the Neutrals Sequins is scattered in the background.

Love how this turned out!  Make sure to check out the rest of the Challenge Team did this week with the color challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary...then grab your stamps and play along!

This is so cool, Connie! I love the map embossed crisp, white background and the way you colored the compass is just so neat! Such a great masculine card!

Great card! I’m going to miss both the stamp set and embossing folder! LOVED both of these things for man cards!

Agreed – such a shame this isn’t a carryover set! Love how these colours work for this card and the star sequins really accentuate the compass too.

Great stamps for these colors, and I love how you have colored the compass! Love the addition of the star sequins!
