World Traveler Appreciation

Hello it’s me again and so soon!   LOL.

I decided to post this card I made for my brother.  He’s GREAT and happens to have traveled the world which is why I thought of using this stamp.  In addition to having a multitude of talents he is by far my biggest card-making supporter.  He even follows this Card Blog and leaves comments, which for a guy is pretty AMAZING!

This card is special because it was my first time using Pan Pastels.  I saw a Pan Pastel demonstration at the Impression Obsession booth at STAMPAWAY USAShe made some gorgeous samples and you can see her Demo them in this Video.  It’s nice to have yet another coloring option to add to: Inks, Copics, & Watercolor Markers: Zig Real Color ; Tombow ; Marvy Le Plume II. 

[Remember:  Everything highlighted in PINK is a link.  Just click on the highlighted word.]

As always, this card had quite a bit of bling which didn’t show up in the pictures.  Below is a close up which shows more of the bling but not much.  If anyone knows how to get bling or sparkle to show up in pictures PLEASE let me know!

I’ve always liked this world map stamp.  I thought about using it for my Dad’s birthday card this year but chose to do another Stampscapes scene for him instead.  My Dad was a world traveler too, having done most of his international travel while in the United States Air Force , from which he retired.  That’s where he became fluent in German.  While in the Air Force he was stationed in Germany, Guam, and Alaska and was sent to places like France, Asia, England, Spain, Turkey, Thailand, and Vietnam among others.  Thanks For Your Service Dad!

Both stamps used for this card are retired Stampin Up stamps: World Map for the image and the sentiment is one from the Word Play set.

 

 

 God Bless & Happy Stamping!
