Sea the World!!

I dream of traveling the world.... where would you go if you didn't have a budget?!?!  I adore Europe but I can see myself exploring Asia and Africa.... sigh... some day, maybe... it's a dream.
 
What do you think?!?  Where would you go??  Leave me a comment and let me know.  Share this with your friends and family.  Pin, Email, Facebook, Tweet and Google+... Follow Me on these avenues (YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn, too).
With a Sahara Sand card stock base (#121043) and our New Circle Thinlits Card Die (#133480), Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine* (113439), Big Shot Magnetic Platform* (#130658) for this moving, fun card.
 
Video Tutorial on HOW to create this card with a cute hidden panel:
 
Pairing colors is easier than ever with our super-hero Color Coach (#130118) a must have tool for any crafter.  Here it paired Sahara Sand with Pear Pizzazz and Early Espresso.  Stamping this log from the Open Sea stamp set (#123032) with Sahara Sand ink (#126976) on this Sahara Sand card stock (#121043) for a neutral, warm base.  Stamping this ship stamped with Early Espresso ink (#126974), using my Aqua Painter (#103954) and Pear Pizzazz ink (#131180) for a cool vintage look. 
Stamping this world on the center of the circle with Versa Mark (#102283) and covering with Early Espresso embossing powder (#128980) to heat set with our Heat Tool (#129053) for this raised, shiny globe.  The Aqua Painter and Pear Pizzazz ink add depth and texture and age.  Soften the edges with our Stampin' Sponges (#101610) and Early Espresso ink for additional softening and aging.
 
Tied together with our Natural Linen Thread (#104199) for a rustic, nautical look.  Adding a dash of Hot Glue to the back of this card, to keep it on while allowing the card to open and be re-tied when desired.
I'm purchasing tickets for a upcoming trip to New Orleans... so I couldn't resist incorporating these Early Espresso inked That's the Ticket (#128075)stamp set images of vintage tickets on Pear Pizzazz card stock (#131201). 
Our Ticket Duo Builder punch (#126883) allows for these to pop out with ease!  Softening the edges with our Early Espresso ink and Stampin' Sponges for softened and vintage edges.
This gives a little of an eerie edge... perfect for Halloween - lol... like a ghost ship (reminds me of Goonies, lol).  I didn't use the Happy Halloween stamp but the ticket would work.
Closed it has a cool look and when open - it has a secret panel to write. 
I try to post daily and hope you will come back often - bring some friends with you!!  I'm so glad you came by today.

Join me TOMORROW on World Card Making Day as we make cards to take home and to send to Soldiers Serving Abroad!!  RSVP Today!!  Click on the Upper Tab for Upcoming Classes!!
 
Where would YOUR Ticket be to?  Aboard an Airplane or Ship... no matter how you'd want to get there, I hope you dream of wonderful places to go... and someday get there.  I hope that this card inspires you to dream... there is a while world waiting of you.

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
