One of my favorite things about a new catalog is the pretty new designer series paper. For today's card, I decided to create my card with one of the designs from the Tea Boutique 6"x6" Designer Series Paper, to create a beautiful clean and simple card design. I paired it with the Nature's Prints Bundle, which has wonderful sentiments for a variety of occasions and great coordinating dies to make life easier. This card design has a wonderful Spring feel to it and with just a little embellishing, is easy to create.

This pretty card design is so simple to create and with all the beautiful designs in this paper pack, you can create a wonderful variety of cards for all occasions. I chose to use Crumb Cake cardstock for my card base to help make the designer series paper layer pop. I heat embossed the sentiment with Silver embossing powder to take the card design to the next level and added a piece of Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon beneath the sentiment label to help it stand out against the background. The pretty new 2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds have a wonderful sparkle to them and I added three of the Fresh Freesia Opal Rounds to add a touch of bling to complete the card design.

Stamping Inkspirations May Blog Hop Sketch Challenge

Welcome to the Stamping Inkspirations May Blog Hop and this month we have a Sketch Challenge to share with you. Our talented Design Team will be sharing their projects and ideas using the sketch below to help inspire you to get creative.
I love creating clean and simple card designs, so this card sketch fits well with my style of card making. For the background, I chose one of the designs from the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper and used the Scalloped Contours Dies to create the layers for the focal image. I love how Navy and White look together and how the Night of Navy cardstock helps make the card design pop. Heat embossing is one of my favorite techniques, so I used it to emboss the leaf image from the Nature's Prints stamp set and the sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp set. I chose to create a Thank You card but you could use this design for a variety of occasions.
Products Used:
Nature's Prints stamp set (item #158793) New
Celebrating You stamp set (item #158028) 
Scalloped Contours Dies (item #155560)
Stylish Shapes Dies (item #159183) New
Heart & Home Designer Series Paper (item #157928)
Night of Navy Cardstock (item #100867)
Basic White Cardstock (item #159276)
Versamark Pad (item #102283)
Basics Embossing Powders (item #155554)
Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (item #144108)
Measurements:
Night of Navy Cardstock
Card Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (Scored at 4 1/4")
Medium & Small Scalloped rectangles die cut with the Scalloped Contours Dies
Sentiment Label die cut with Stylish Shapes Dies
Basic White Cardstock
Rectangle Layer - 3 3/16" x 1 7/8"
Heart & Home Designer Series Paper
Card Front - 5 1/4" x 4"
This clean and simple card design is all about the layers. The combination of Night of Navy and Basic White cardstock adds a simply Wow factor to this design with the multiple layers. I just love the beautiful design in the designer series paper for the background and the texture it adds to the card front. The White embossing for the focal image and sentiment tie in with the color combination to finish off the design. I used Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the sentiment and the middle layer of the focal image to add dimension to the 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 cards using this sketch. Sketches are a great way to spark your creativity by providing you with a road map to help you get started.

Around The World On Wednesday May Blog Hop Sketch 101

 
Welcome to the Around The World On Wednesday May Blog Hop and this month we have a Sketch Challenge. Our Design Team members will be sharing their projects and ideas using the sketch below to help inspire you. Sketches are a wonderful way to spark creativity and help you step outside your comfort zone.  
For my card design, I chose to use products from the Heart & Home Suite in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. For the overlapping layers, I chose to use the scalloped rectangle die from the Scalloped Contours Dies and the designer series paper layer was die cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies. Both of these dies are almost the same size, which made them perfect to replicate the sketch design. The floral stamp image is from the Blessings of Home stamp set and coordinates with the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper layer I chose for this card. I love how this card turned out using this sketch to create this clean and simple design. 
Products Used:
Blessings Of Home stamp set (item #157930)
Happiness Abounds stamp set (item #159238) New
Stitched Rectangles Dies (item #151820)
Scalloped Contours Dies (item #155560)
Stylish Shapes Dies (item #159183) New
Heart & Home Designer Series Paper (item #157928)
Pale Papaya Cardstock (item #155668)
Smoky Slate Cardstock (item #131202)
Smoky Slate Classic Ink Pad (item #147113)
Versamark Pad (item #102283)
Basics Embossing Powders (item #155554)
Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels (item #151193)
Baker's Twine Essentials Pack (item #155475)
Stampin' Dimensionals (item #104430)
Measurements:
Smoky Slate Cardstock
Card Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (Scored at 4 1/4")
Pale Papaya cardstock
Scalloped Rectangle layer die cut with Scalloped Contours Dies
Heart & Home Designer Series Paper
Stitched Rectangle die cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies
This pretty card design had me stepping outside my comfort zone using colors and a layout I had not tried before. I chose the colors from the designer series paper and I will admit, it is not a color combination I have used before. I heat embossed the floral image with White embossing powder to decorate the Pale Papaya layer and I created the sentiment label with one of the dies from the Stylish Shapes Dies and heat embossed the image with White embossing powder to coordinate. I used White Baker's Twine to embellish the Pale Papaya layer and then added the layer to the designer series paper layer with adhesive. I stamped the floral image with Smoky Slate Classic ink on the top right and bottom left corners of the Smoky Slate card base and then added the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. To add a touch of bling, I added Champagne Rhinestones to the centers of the embossed flowers and the sentiment label to finish up the design. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to explore using sketches to create your own beautiful card designs. They are a wonderful way to spark your creativity and work for all occasions.

ICS May Blog Hop It's A Guy Thing

 
Welcome to the ICS May Blog Hop as we celebrate the men in our lives with our theme "It's A Guy Thing". Creating masculine card designs can be challenging, so our Design Team will be sharing their projects and ideas to help inspire you to create your own wonderful projects for the men in your life.
For my masculine card design, I decided to focus on a nature theme using the beautiful New Horizons 6"x6" Designer Series Paper with the Wildlife Wonder stamp set. Both of these products can be found in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog and I think they pair perfectly together to create wonderful masculine cards. The designer series paper is perfect for the background, creating a scene for the bear that reminds you of a misty morning in the wild. 
Products Used:
Wildlife Wonder stamp set (item #157923)
Stylish Shapes Dies (item #159183) New
New Horizons 6"x6" Designer Series Paper (item #157768)
Evening Evergreen Cardstock (item #155574)
Crumb Cake Cardstock (item #120953)
Early Espresso Classic Ink Pad (item #147114)
Old Olive Classic Ink Pad (item #147090)
Versamark Pad (item #102283)
Metallics Embossing Powders (item #155555)
Linen Thread (item #104199)
Stampin' Dimensionals (item #104430)
Measurements:
Evening Evergreen Cardstock
Card Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (Scored at 4 1/4")
Sentiment Label die cut with the Stylish Shapes Dies
New Horizons Designer Series Paper
Card Front - 5 1/4" x 4"
This clean and simple masculine card is easy to create with just a few supplies. I chose one of the designs from the New Horizons Designer Series Paper pack to create my background and stamped the foreground using images from the Wildlife Wonder stamp set, with Old Olive Classic ink. I then adhered it to the Evening Evergreen card base. For the bear, I stamped the image with Early Espresso Classic ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock and fussy cut the image out. To create the sentiment, I die cut a circle using the Stylish Shapes Dies from Evening Evergreen cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment using Silver embossing powder. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the bear and the sentiment to the card front and added Linen Thread to the left side of the card front, wrapping it twice before tying a knot, to complete the design. This card design would work for a variety of occasions including birthday and Father's Day. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to explore the many options available to help you create your own wonderful masculine cards.

Colour Combo May Blog Hop

Welcome to the Colour Combo May Blog Hop as we explore using different color combinations to help us step outside of our comfort zone. This month we have been challenged to create a project using Crushed Curry, Polished Pink and Blushing Bride. Our Design Team members will be sharing their projects and ideas to help inspire you to try this fun color combination. 
For my card, I decided to focus on using just the Nature's Prints Bundle from the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog to create my design. I used several of the images from the stamp set to create the background using all three of the colors and then chose one of the sentiments to heat emboss with Gold embossing powder onto a Basic Black cardstock label die cut with the coordinating dies. I kept the embellishments very simple, using the Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to add a touch of sparkle. I love how these colors combined to create the background for this clean and simple card design.
Products Used:
Nature's Prints Bundle (item #158801) New
Polished Pink Cardstock (item #155710)
Crushed Curry Cardstock (item #131199)
Basic White Cardstock (item #159276)
Basic Black Cardstock (item #121045)
Polished Pink Classic Ink Pad (item #155712)
Crushed Curry Classic Ink Pad (item #147087)
Blushing Bride Classic Ink Pad (item #147100)
Versamark Pad (item #102283)
Metallics Embossing Powders (item #155555)
Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (item #141897)
Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels (item #158130)
Stampin' Dimensionals (item #104430)
Measurements:
Polished Pink Cardstock
Card Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (Scored at 4 1/4")
Crushed Curry Cardstock
Layer 1 - 5 1/4" x 4"
Basic White Cardstock
Card Front - 5" x 3 3/4"
Basic Black Cardstock
Sentiment Label die cut with the Natural Prints Dies (Bundle)
This clean and simple card design really showcases these beautiful colors. The images have a wonderful organic feel to them and I love how the colors and images blend together to create a beautiful background. I used Clear Wink of Stella to color the leaves of the large Polished Pink image to help blend the ink and add a touch of shimmer. The splotches in Crushed Curry and Blushing Bride Classic inks were stamped off once to create a lighter shade to fill in some of the white space, adding soft, subtle color to the design. The Gold embossing sentiment on the Basic Black label adds a touch of elegance to the design and I love how the Basic Black pops against the colorful background. I chose the Iridescent Rhinestones to add a subtle touch of bling that enhances the card design rather than competing.  
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to give this pretty color combination a try to create your own wonderful projects.
