Globe Greetings

Hi peeps! How's it going? I am back today with my 2nd showcase for Concord & 9th. I am really enjoying guest designing for them. When you get to work with awesome products, that definitely make it easy to create.

For today, we get to showcase the Globe Greetings set along with Globe Greetings dies set. As someone who loves to travel, I love globe! And, when I saw this set comes complete with some flowers (which is another favorite), my heart was all pitter patter with excitement.

Here's my 1st card using tis set.

I heat embossed the globe base and the sentiment and then went to town with the flowers. I simply die-cut the flowers from colored cardstock and then stamp the center image of each flowers and adhere some directly on the card and some with pop-dots to create depth. In person, you can see all the layering on this card.Here's a close up look of the globe.

Then I want to create a card with more contrasting look. This time I went with black patterned paper as the background and use the bright blue flower as my main focus. Like, literally, I build this card from there. I want to use the bright blue and make everything else work around it.

I decided to heat embossed the sentiment in white instead of black to keep the globe design light & airy to complement the bold flower color and the dark background. By the way, you can also get this globe set as a bundle HERE.

I am super happy with the way these 2 cards turned out. This set truly combining my love of travel and stamping perfectly. I might have to do one to frame to decorate my new craft room.

New craft room? Yep, hubby and I been working on building a new house and it's getting there. Cross fingers everything goes smoothly, we should be moving within the next 2 months and I will have a craft room on the 3rd floor with big window. Not looking forward to the packing, but I am looking forward to new home. It's been hubby's dream to build his own home after building for others for so many years. Will keep you all posted.

Well peeps, that's all from me today. Hope you enjoy today's post and please stop by Concord & 9th blog to see what the other guest designers have created with this fun set. Cheers....
