GSF June Blog Hop New Annual Catalog

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop. This month we are featuring new products from the New 2018-2019 Annual Catalog that launches today. I hope that you will be inspired by our projects to try out these new products yourself.

I chose to use the new Painted Glass Bundle for my card design along with the new In Color, Lovely Lipstick. It is such a wonderful vibrant color so I used Lovely Lipstick cardstock for my card base and added a layer of Basic Black cardstock as a matte to the Whisper White cardstock layer.

The intricate frame around the butterfly has been die cut using the Stained Glass Thinlets dies from Basic Black cardstock and the butterfly image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock and colored with an assortment of Stampin' Write Markers to give that stained glass look. It was also die cut using a die from the Stained Glass Thinlets dies. This stamp set and coordinating thinlets die set work beautifully together and when purchased as a bundle, you can save 10%.

The sentiment was heat embossed onto a 1" strip of Basic Black card stock and heat embossed with Gold embossing powder. I used  Lovely Lipstick 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon to create a border on either side of the Basic Black cardstock strip to tie in with the card base. 

I love the clean and simple design of this card and the bold contrast between the Lovely Lipstick, Basic Black and Whisper White. The Gold embossing worked beautifully to showcase the intricate font of the sentiment.

This is just one of the amazing possibilities you can create with this bundle and I look forward to playing with it more and exploring different combinations.
