Stamping INKspirations January Blog Hop Something New

Welcome to the first Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop and we are starting January off with the theme of Something New. You will be visiting with creative people from around the world as they share their projects and ideas to help inspire you to get the New Year off to a great start. 
With the start of the New Year, I have been enjoying playing with some of the new products from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog to help spark my creativity. I chose to use the Enjoy The Moment stamp set and combined it with the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder (item #153200) to add some texture and a vintage feel to the design. I love to heat emboss, so I incorporated that technique by embossing the focal image with Gold embossing powder to make it pop against the Rich Razzleberry cardstock. The color combination of Rich Razzleberry, Gray Granite and Very Vanilla with a touch of Gold is also something new for me and I love how these colors work together.

This clean and simple card design has an elegant feel to it and I love the organic theme of the Enjoy The Moment stamp set. I chose one of the large images from this stamp set to heat emboss as the focal image onto the Rich Razzleberry cardstock oval. The Gray Granite cardstock oval provides a beautiful frame for this image and helps it to pop against the card background. The Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder adds wonderful texture to this card and the Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon adds an elegant touch. For the sentiment, I used Gray Granite Classic ink and stamped off the small image once before stamping it on the Very Vanilla cardstock. I stamped the sentiment on top of the stamped image using Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink and punched it out using the 1 1/2" Circle Punch. I attached the focal image to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals and then added the sentiment circle by overlapping one side over the focal image and attaching a Stampin' Dimensional to the back of the other side to have it level with the focal image. I decided not to add any bling to this card as I felt that the Gold embossing and the Gold detail on the ribbon were perfect for stepping up this design.
