GSF May Blog Hop Brand New


Welcome to the GSF May Blog Hop and our theme this month is "Brand New". You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their beautiful projects and ideas to help inspire you. With the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog arriving this week, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share with you some of the amazing new products in this wonderful catalog. 
There is something so exciting about a brand new catalog and seeing all the wonderful possibilities for creating projects with all the new products. Today I am sharing a cute birthday card created with the adorable Party Puffins stamp set (item #155054) and two of the new 2021-2022 In Colors. I have been having so much fun discovering new color combinations with these beautiful colors and today I have chosen to use Polished Pink with Pale Papaya. This clean and simple card design has a fun, cheerful feel to it that is sure to make someone's birthday extra special.

I love the combination of fun images and sentiments in the Party Puffins stamp set and I can see using this stamp set to create cards for people of all ages. The coordination of the new In Color products made creating this color simple and stress free. To create the sentiment tag, I die cut the tag with one of the Tailor Made Tags Dies from Polished Pink cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment with White Embossing Powder. I threaded a small piece of Polished Pink and Pale Papaya Ribbon through the hole in the tag and tied a bow around them with the White Baker's Twine from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack. The background of the Pale Papaya card front has been stamped with the candle image using Pale Papaya Classic ink to create a tone on tone pattern. I stamped the puffin image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a Basic White cardstock circle die cut with the Layering Circles Dies. I colored the puffin image with the Stampin' Blends Markers to coordinate with the card design and layered the focal circle onto the Polished Pink scalloped circle that I die cut with the Layering Circles Dies. I attached the focal image and sentiment tag to the card front with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

  1. What a fun and bright card! Wasn't going to get that set...but y'all are making me rethink that!

  2. I think these little seabirds are so much fun. Your card is super cute, Tricia! I am defiantly going to look at this color combo too. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Such a happy card! I honestly kind of grudgingly pre-ordered this set...wasn't at the top of my list, but I wanted to order more stamps to go with all the new In Colors. SOOO glad I got it, it's so much cuter in your creation than I imagined. Thanks for sharing :-D

  5. Fabulous card, Tricia and such a fun colour combo. Great to know that the Layering Circle dies are the perfect size for the Party Puffins. Thanks for sharing x

  6. I overlooked those tags! The ribbon added to the tag really adds to your adorable card.

  7. I love the contrasting bright colors with this black and white cutie pie. Great job.
