Hello Stamping Friends,
Happy New Year! I hope this year brings you much health, happiness and love. It's always an exciting time of year, new beginnings and getting to start fresh. The last few months have been a bit hectic here at our home so I'm really excited to start new and fresh for 2016.
You also know that with the new comes a new Occasions catalog, right? It's a great one and it starts on January 5th. This week with the Sisters in Stamping we are sharing some sneak peeks from the new Occasions catalog. So be sure to check them out.
One of the first sets that I fell in love with is this one shown below, Going Global. We (demonstrators) got to play with it at the recent OnStage Local event in Baltimore. It's so appropriate for Stampin' Up! right now because we are a global company and they are focusing on our global aspect. BUT, I love the set because I have always loved looking at a globe and seeing where different places are and how close or far away we are from them.
There are several things used on this card from the Going Places suite of products from page 39 in the Occasions catalog, designer series paper, embossing folder, and let's not forget the Going Places stamp set. Yes, there is an embossing folder used on this card but it's NOT in the usual way you would be thinking. The World Traveler textured impressions embossing folder is inked up and then the sahara sand cardstock is laid on top of it, so it is "stamped" on the cardstock instead of the raised image the embossing gives you. It's a fun, extra use of your folders. You should try it out.
