One of the suites that was super popular during the November OnStage preview event was the Going Places Suite. It has an interesting stamp set and some cool masculine papers and an AWESOME world map embossing folder. Put them together and you can get something like this:
I don’t know quite whether to call this a valentine/love stamp set, but I like how it is different than the other typical sets.
It is a little hard to see, but we stamped the globe image onto one of the patterned papers and then punched it out with the 2″ circle punch. Then I layered it over another patterned paper (the yellow) and then put the sentiment on top. Isn’t layering nice? 🙂
Did you notice that vintage-y map image on the card base? It’s not a stamp… it comes from this cool new embossing folder!
World Traveler Embossing Folder (in the store)
We inked up the embossing folder with Sahara Sand ink and then laid it over our base cardstock and then rubbed with a bone folder. This turned our embossing folder into a stamp! Pretty cool, huh?! You won’t get a solid image when you use an embossing folder as a stamp, but you get a cool vintage look with it. So, don’t worry about perfection and just enjoy the neat rough outline.
This is another set I can’t wait to work with more… and I hope to put a class together with it later this spring. There is so much potential… and seriously love that embossing folder!
