Stampin' Addicts Occasions Blog Hop 2016: Going Places

Welcome to the 2016 Stampin' Addicts Occasions Blog Hop. This is one of eight stops showcasing projects created with products from Stampin' Up!'s Occasions Catalog.

You may have come from Rhonda's blog featuring Rose Garden/Wonder Bundle or, if traveling backwards, Yapha's blog featuring Bear Hugs Bundle. Either way, you are here at Lily's Ink Pad and I am featuring The Going Places Product Suite, which includes a very awesome stamp set called Going Global including the world, a compass, the Big Dipper, and some love-ly sentiments. The Going Places Designer Series Paper has coordinating patterns, but also some great oil/paint art. Finally, there is a World Map on the World Traveler Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I decided to start with some cards. I like clean and simple layouts with cute details. I think I met my goals with this one:

I used the Confetti Hearts Border Punch to make my map markers. Really the love of my life lives within my apartment, but this would be good if I go to another Stampin' Up! event in Utah! 

My next card uses the Confetti Stars Punch. I had to, right?

Again, this is a great valentine, but without that pink color! I love the star paper. I added a  little Wink of Stella on some of the stars, but the sparkles aren't showing up in my photo.

My next project is the result of me falling in love with the Going Places Designer Series Paper and wanting to make a multimedia project:
My nephew took this photo when he was in Paris two summers ago on a school trip. I plan to give it to him for his birthday in February. I basically colored a canvas and decoupaged with modge podge. I stamped the globe and compass and punched them out and added them for fun. I had wanted to distress it more and add more layers of paint, but I couldn't bear to cover up more of the paper!

My final card was designed because I knew I wanted to use the sentiment: World's Best Dad. 
More details and bigger pictures will be posted on my blog this week. Basically, I used the Circle Card Framelits for my base. I also used the Circle Card Framelit to cut out a matching piece that I had used the World Traveler Textured Embossing folder on. That way, I had a texture layer and and a plain layer. The rest is pretty simple to see. I will show you more tips next week!

That's all I got! I ain't got no more! It's time for you to travel forward to Yapha's Blog with the Bear Hugs Bundle or you can go backwards to Rhonda's blog for Rose Garden/Wonder Bundle. 

Happy Stamping!
