World Traveler embossing folder... a new love!

Quick share of something I have been playing with... this is the first of a series as I tried out a few ideas at the same time!!

Though I am not planning on sharing the full series this week... lots of other things to share first!!
But before I start with the creative details...

If you are local enough - don't forget my Spring Summer Catalogue Launch Party & Pre-Loved BOGHF Sale this week... Wednesday 13th, Friday 15th & Saturday 16th... more details here on my Classes and Events Page. Just contact me to book a place...

The embossing folder was inked up using a dauber and Pool Party ink on the raised sea sections... and where I was a bit heavy handed - I removed some ink from the debossed land sections with a cotton bud (tip)... A bit of a labour of love but not too bad! Then I embossed my piece of card....
I have also used the fabulous Sale A Bration Sky is the Limit (yours for free with a £45 order!)... I REALLY love this one... finding it VERY VERY useful.... even more so than at first sight...

I also used the Bloomin' Love stamp set for the banner... just seemed like the right wording.... A bit of Linen Thread holds the banner in place...
And last  - but definitely not least - and hard to see on the photos - the clear Wink of Stella pen...for the plane, the heart...and the UK (for anyone that doesn't know where I live!) It just gives that last pop required!
Now no chance of me not buying Going Global next then.... just need to be able to get an order in quickly!! Itching to play...

And yes...a new Box Frame Card version... you will be seeing this again soon....
And finally I leave you with a VERY funny fact.... can you guess at my most viewed blog post in the last week...

Yes... it had to be... it was Something Strange for Saturday! The post about nothing...that really only showed how frustrated I was at that moment of time!! Well a few hours actually.... Sorry again for that one!

And it even came up as a link from a search on Google!! LOL!!!

Not sure what that says about my other blogging efforts though... I will try to not be disheartened!!! Said with a true note of British sarcasm.... ( just in case you were wondering...!)
