Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop Special Guest - Inspiration from Annual Catalog

Welcome to the 2nd Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop!
I am SO excited to join this talented group of stampers led by Angie McKenzie
for this BRAND NEW blog hop. There are 24 of us on this hop so don't miss a one!
The theme this month was to focus on "Inspiration from the NEW Annual Catalog". If you don't know it yet, I actually work at Stampin' Up! as a Concept Artist which means I make several of the samples shown in all of the SU catalogs, promotions, website, etc. (But I also am a proud demonstrator of 12 years!) So what do I do for this blog hop?
I decided that I did not have enough fun with the World of Good Suite samples, 
so I wanted to see what more could I inspire YOU with!  
Some things like:
- In Good Taste DSP woodgrain pattern embossed with the 
Pinewood Planks Emboss Folder
- Adding the embossed coordinates (of the global SU offices locations) multiple times
- Heat Embossing the globe stamp image and adding watercolor washes
 in Granny Apple Green and Balmy Blue
- Take the globe stand, shorten it by trimming off then gluing back in place at an angle (this was a a-ha moment that I thought why did I not think of this when I did my suite samples!)
I don't get to blog that often anymore but you can find me on the following:

Oh Cindy, firstly ... well done on the sample projects in the catalogue for the World of Good suite of products. And secondly, what an amazing project you are showcasing today. I love the idea of chopping off and tilting the globe stand. Brilliant. xxx
