New At SU September Blog Hop July-December 2021 Mini Catalog

 

Welcome to the New At SU September Blog Hop as we showcase products from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. This catalog is full of wonderful products to help you create projects for the upcoming holidays as well as the Fall and Winter seasons. There are so many amazing possibilities to explore. You will be visiting with wonderful Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their projects and ideas to help inspire.
One of my favorite things about the new July-December 2021 Mini Catalog is the variety of themes beyond the normal holiday bundles and products. One of my favorite new bundles is the Arctic Bears Bundle. It is perfect for a variety of occasions and it works well for masculine cards. The beautiful images and sentiments make it an easy bundle to create wonderful card designs with just a few supplies. 
Products Used:
Arctic Bears Bundle (item #156795)
Stitched Rectangles Dies (item #151820)
Misty Moonlight Cardstock (item #153081)
Basic White Cardstock (item #159276)
Misty Moonlight Classic Ink Pad (item #153118)
Balmy Blue Classic Ink Pad (item #147105)
Versamark Pad (item #102283)
Basics Embossing Powders (item #155554)
Subtle Shimmer Sequins (item #156407)
Stampin' Dimensionals (item #104430)
Sponge Daubers (item #133773)
Measurements:
Misty Moonlight Cardstock
Card Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (Scored at 4 1/4")
Card Front - 5 1/4" x 4"
Sentiment Label die cut with Stitched Rectangles Dies
Basic White Cardstock
Bottom snow background die cut with Polar Bears Dies
Top icicles die cut with Polar Bears Dies 
Ice berg die cut with Polar Bears Dies
Polar Bear stamped with Arctic Bears stamp set and die cut with Polar Bears Dies
Moon die cut with Polar Bears Dies
I chose to create this card design with a monochromatic color combination. I chose to use Misty Moonlight cardstock for the card base and background to create the look of a dark night's sky. The Basic White cardstock really pops against the dark background and I lightly sponged the die cut pieces with Balmy Blue Classic ink to create depth and shadow. For the polar bear, I used Misty Moonlight Classic ink to stamp the image onto the Basic White cardstock and die cut it out with the coordinating die. I heat embossed the sentiment with White Embossing Powder onto Misty Moonlight cardstock and used one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies to create the sentiment label. I trimmed it on the right side and attached it towards the right side of the card front. For a touch of bling, I added three of the silver sequins from the Subtle Shimmer Sequins to create the look of stars in the sky. This card design would be a wonderful Winter birthday card or it could be used as a Christmas card design. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to create your own beautiful projects with the wonderful products in the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. As you can see, there is so much more to fantastic mini catalog than holiday products and so many wonderful possibilities to explore.

I love to color and I had so much fun coloring the image in the Feels Like Home stamp set. I colored the background with a Sponge Dauber and Crumb Cake Classic ink to give the design a vintage feel to it. I stamped the image with Early Espresso Classic ink onto the Very Vanilla scalloped rectangle and then colored in the image with my Stampin' Blends Markers. I chose warm colors that reflected the feeling of Fall for this card design. For the sentiment, I stamped the image onto the Very Vanilla sentiment label with Early Espresso Classic ink and attached it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. To embellish the card design, I used four of the gold colored Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots in the corners of the focal image, to add a touch of bling. I love the warm, welcoming feel to this card design and I think it works well with the meaning of the sentiment. This versatile stamp set can be used all year round by changing the colors used to create your card design.

I stamped the circle image from the Textures & Frames stamp set with Blushing Bride Classic ink and heat embossed the sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder. I framed the Basic White circle with a Cinnamon Cider cardstock circle and popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals. The background splotches were created with Gold embossing to coordinate with the sentiment.

Stamping Inkspirations September Blog Hop Lifetime Celebrations

Welcome to the Stamping Inkspirations September Blog Hop as we showcase Lifetime Celebrations. Throughout our lives there are special moments and milestones that we celebrate with our family and friends. These may be happy occasions such as birthdays, weddings or a new addition to the family or it may be to remember the loss of someone special. Today we are sharing projects and ideas to help inspire you to create your own projects to celebrate these times.
Today I have decided to create a soft, elegant Sympathy card for my card design. I love the Prized Peony stamp set for creating beautiful special occasion cards. I paired it with the Birch stamp set to create the background and used Stampin' Blends Markers to color the beautiful peony image. The loss of a loved one can be a difficult time but it is also the celebration of a life. I wanted to create a card design that would provide comfort and help honor the loss of a loved one.
Products Used:
Prized Peony stamp set (item #152504)
Birch stamp set (item #149256)
Peony Dies (item #152701)
Stitched Rectangles Dies (item #151820)
Scalloped Contours Dies (item #155560)
Label Me Fancy Punch (item #151297)
Crumb Cake Cardstock (item #120953)
Soft Sea Foam Cardstock (item #146988)
Very Vanilla Cardstock (item #101650)
Crumb Cake Classic Ink Pad (item #147116)
Gray Granite Classic Ink Pad (item #147118)
Versamark Pad (item #102283)
Metallics Embossing Powders (item #155555)
Pale Papaya Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #155519)
Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154902)
Pale Papaya 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon (item #155672)
Basic Rhinestone Jewels (item #144220)
Stampin' Dimensionals (item #104430)
Sponge Daubers (item #133773)
Measurements:
Crumb Cake Cardstock
Card Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (Scored at 4 1/4")
Soft Sea Foam Cardstock
Large Scalloped Rectangle die cut with the Scalloped Contours Dies
Very Vanilla Cardstock
Large Stitched Rectangle die cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies
Sentiment Label punched with the Label Me Fancy Punch
Stamped Peony image die cut with the Peony Dies
This beautiful card design has a wonderful vintage feeling created by sponging with Sponge Daubers. I stamped the Very Vanilla stitched rectangle with the Birch stamp set using Gray Granite Classic ink and sponged the layer with Crumb Cake Classic ink. I also sponged the outside edge of the front of the card base with Crumb Cake Classic ink to create a vintage look. The image was stamped with Gray Granite Classic ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and I colored the peony with Light and Dark Pale Papaya Stampin' Blends Markers and the leaves with the Light and Dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends Markers. I die cut the image with the coordinating die and attached it to the stitched rectangle layer with Stampin' Dimensionals. I added the Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon around the bottom of the stitched rectangle layer. For the sentiment label, I heat embossed the image with Gold Embossing Powder onto the Very Vanilla label punched out with the Label Me Fancy Punch. I attached the sentiment label over the top of the ribbon with Stampin' Dimensionals. I attached the stitched rectangle layer to the Soft Sea Foam scalloped rectangle layer and attached it to the Crumb Cake card base with Stampin' Dimensionals. For a touch of bling, I added Basic Rhinestone jewels to finish off the design. This pretty card design would work well as a special birthday card or for a wedding card. I love the beautiful images and sentiments in the Prized Peony stamp set and it is one of my go to stamp sets for special occasions.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to create your own special projects to celebrate the special moments in your life.
