Around The World On Wednesday June Blog Hop Let's Go On An Adventure

Welcome to the Around The World On Wednesday June Blog Hop as we go on an adventure to create fun and inspiring projects. Our wonderful Design Team will be sharing their projects and ideas to help spark your creativity and hopefully inspire you to go on your own creative adventure. 
When I think about adventure, my mind goes to traveling and exploring new places. I have been fortunate to have traveled and lived in various places around the world, so this is what influenced my card design. For my card design today, I wanted to use the new Next Destination stamp set in the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog. I love the images and sentiments in this stamp set and I thought it would be perfect for creating cards for Graduations and Retirements. The card design I created has a vintage feel to it and would be a perfect masculine card. I paired it with the Watercolor World stamp to create the background for the card design and used Pecan Pie, Wild Wheat, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla with a touch of Gold to step up the design.

The images in the Next Destination stamp set work perfectly for creating a card with theme of going on a journey, starting a new adventure. I love the sketched style of the images and wanted to create an aged, worn look to my card similar to an old notebook with a vintage map on the cover. Pecan Pie is a wonderful, warm brown and it works beautifully with Early Espresso. I stamped the Watercolor World stamp with Pecan Pie Classic ink onto the Pecan Pie card front to create the look of a vintage world map. The focal image was stamped with Early Espresso Classic ink onto a Very Vanilla cardstock square and I colored the image with Stampin' Blends Markers. I used the Light Gray Granite Stampin' Blends Marker to create the background around the image and blended it with the Color Lifter to soften and distress the background. The sentiment was heat embossed with Gold embossing powder onto the Early Espresso cardstock label and I embellished the label with two of the Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots. I popped both the focal image and the sentiment label up using Stampin' Dimensionals, with the sentiment label overlapping the bottom right side of the focal square. I love how this card design turned out and I feel like it is perfect for someone preparing for the next stage in their life, their next adventure.
