Moxie Fab World Map to Your Heart Challenge


Hi there, crafty people!  I'm so happy I had a chance to squeeze in a challenge last night.  This one is ending tonight over in the Moxie Fab World, so you'll have to run if you still want to enter!

The Map to Your Heart challenge asks us to incorporate a map on our project.  I didn't have any real maps laying around, but I did have some journal cards from October Afternoon's Road Map collection that fit the bill.

I took one of those journal cards and used a frame die to cut out a space at the bottom.  In the negative space, I stamped a globe and a sentiment from PTI's Masculine Motifs.  The globe was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with clear powder.

I die cut a tiny heart from another journal card with a plaid print and added some hand stitching around the edge of the map before adhering those elements with pop dots.  

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Aqua Mist)
Patterned paper:  October Afternoon (Road Map collection)
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink (Masculine Motifs)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Real Red), Tsukineko (Versamark)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Fillable Frames #11 die, Heart Prints die, Linen & Canvas impression plate), corner rounder
Accessories:  Stampendous (clear embossing powder), DMC floss

Pretty simple, but I like how it turned out.

Thanks for visiting today!  I hope your week is off to a great start!
