Travel Stamps

Morning Stampers, this is my DT card for The Male Room, where our challenge this week is a male card with the main focus being TRAVEL OR TRANSPORT

I went for Stamps from around the world on a world map background. I will also be entering it into Fab Friday who have these colours.
Supplies :
All are Stampin' Up unless stated otherwise
Card = Naturals White, Whisper White, Black, and white base FMS
Stamps = World Map, Loving Thoughts, Clarity Stamp and Africa Elements, Inkadinkado Asian Influences, and Clear Choice Viva France
Inks = Black, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, and Old Olive
Tools = Stamp-a-ma-jig, and Sponges
Extras = Post Its, and 3D Pads

I've been in the wars again! I fell over in the kitchen and bashed my head against the door frame, and badly bruised my arms and legs, not to mention my pride!!. Once I stopped the tears, it took me a good ten minutes to gather enough strength to get up, and to stop Monty jumping on me as he sensed something was wrong.
I now have a terrible cold that I caught from Nathan at his birthday party. He loved his cake and Pinata, and I now have to make a Halloween one for him and his friends for Trick and Treat night! No pressure there then!! Here is his dinosaur one I made.

This is the side view. There are lots of layers of paper mache, and then several layers of Magnolia paint.

Here he is painted in a pale green, with the face and spots details made from pieces of coloured card glued on and finished with a black marker.

I hope I get some time for crafting and blog hopping this week, as I've been a little slack with one thing and another, I'm Sorry.

Hope you can drop by again soon, and thank you for your lovely comments.


  1. I love your card Bev, what a clever idea to use postage stamps. It seems a shame that the dinosaur is going to get bashed, he's so cute.

  2. Lovely stamp collage! The images are perfect for the travel theme. Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

  3. Wow Bev! It turned out amazing! Great sponging and stamping, love the background stamp ;) That dinosaur is fantastic, sure it was a big 'hit' at the party (sorry..awful joke!)

  4. Love your round the world card Bev, great stamps and beautiful colours. Wow, a pinnata, is there no end to your talents:) hope your bruises are on the mend, I can sympathise with the cold, I never get ill but caught at the weekend and hoping being here in spain will cure it:)
