Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Beautiful World edition! The "Crew" is made up of a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world who pick a stamp set or bundle to highlight on the first and third Mondays of each month, with a bonus hop if there is a fifth Monday. If you landed here from Linda's blog, Stampin' Seasons, welcome! There are five of us today, so it's a quick hop. 😊
Beautiful World is a 13 piece cling stamp set and has coordinating 10 piece World Map Dies which, of course, you can bundle and save 10%. They are part of the World of Good Suite found on page 24 of the annual catalog. This suite is absolutely perfect for scrapbook pages, masculine cards, or wishing someone well as they go off on new endeavors!
My first card is a simple yet elegant Thank You. I used an Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker to ink up just the thank you part of the greeting. The quill was inked (Crumb Cake) with a sponge dauber and then edged with the Early Espresso marker.
Now I have to admit, those ink spots are not part of this set. I had to borrow them from Forever Fern, because I just knew that if I was trying to use a quill and ink well, I'd be leaving spatters of ink behind!
I love the texture the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder makes, don't you? It takes a plain background from boring to beautiful.
My next card could be for a young adult striking out on their own, a newlywed couple, or even someone starting a new job.
The World of Good Specialty DSP and Brass Foil Sheets sure make the card interesting! I liked how the brass curlicue above 'Adventure" mimics the shape of the A. And the texture from the latitude/longitude coordinates behind the globe also adds more interest. Lots of details on this card!
And, because I had an "opportunity for embellishment" (aka oops) just as I was finishing the card, I added silver Metallic Pearls, which blended perfectly with the Seaside Spray cardstock.
That's all I have today, so hop on over to see what Charlet at Painted Orange has made!
