Stampin Up “Traveler” Happy Stampers Blog Hop


Hi Stampers, Today I changed things up a bit… I made a simple MAN card. I am challenged when I need to tone things down a bit and had fun trying hard not to add too much to my card. Today we have a sketch challenge for you. Enjoy my card and then hop to the other members of your team to see what they created.


Β Here is the sketch:


Here is my share from the sketch.

Stampin Up "Traveler" card by Kristi @

Here is the card recipe:

Card base: Very Vanilla sponged with Tip Top Taupe 4-1/4 x 11 scored at 5-1/2

Mat: Tip Top Taupe 4 x 5-1/4 Embossed with the Chevron Embossing Folder

Thin Mat: Early Espresso 2 x 4-3/4

Squares: Very Vanilla 1-3/4 square, sponged with Tip Top Taupe

Sentiment: Very Vanilla 1/2 x 3-1/4 sponged with Tip Top Taupe

The Details:

I inked 2 different images from the Traveler stamp set onto each of the Very Vanilla squares in Early Espresso. The edges were sponged in Tip Top Taupe and adhered to the Early Espresso mat with dimensionals.

More Details:

After all the squares are attached wrap some linen thread around the base of the early espresso mat. Make a loop with some Tip Top Taupe Lace Ribbon and tie a bow with more linen thread. Attach this art piece with dimensionals for depth.

The sentiment is inked with Early Espresso ink and the edges are sponged with Tip Top Taupe ink. My cards would not be complete without a touch of bling. Gold sequins were added here and there for the final touch.
