Going Global for PP279

Hello, Stampers!

I spent the last couple of days digging my way out of 32 inches of snow!  It was so nice to finally find my way back to my studio to make this card for the Paper Players Challenge.  Here's this week's sketch:


And here is my card:

I stamped the dotted image in the Timeless Textures Stamp Set with Versamark onto my black cardstock.  I then embossed it with clear embossing powder to give it shine.  The designer series  paper strip is from the Going Places Designer Series Paper Stack.  The Lost Lagoon strip is embossed using the Zig Zag Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This folder is on sale this week as part of the Weekly Deals!  I stamped the compass from the Going Global Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow.  The sentiment from the same stamp set is colored with Basic Black, Delightful Dijon, and Mossy Meadow Stampin' Write Markers.

I'm going to give this card to my hubby to thank him for all the things he does to make our household run.  He spoils me rotten and I quite like it!

Happy stamping!


  1. Cute, cute card Robin. Great idea on the background too. I'm sure hubby will love it! Thanks for playing with us for our Sketch challenge this week.

  2. Oh my, I just love this masculine card and I know your DH will love it too! What a great idea to heat emboss with the embossing folder...I'll have to give that a try! Thanks for sharing it with us this week at the Players! And do you live in PA? We got about that much snow too!

    1. Yes, I do live in PA! I live just south of Allentown. Where are you?

    2. I live down in Chester County, near Longwood Gardens....almost to the DE/MD line! We're practically neighbors!!!

  3. What a great guy card, Robin! I love that embossed background, it adds so much texture and shine. So glad you joined us this week at The Paper Players!
