Silver To Silver Elite June Blog Hop Welcome The New and Cherish The Old

Welcome to the Silver to Silver Elite Journey To Silver Elite June Blog Hop. We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators with a common goal to support each other as we build our businesses. Our theme this month is "Welcome the New and Cherish The Old" and we have been challenged to use a product from the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, a carryover product from the previous catalog and a new color, to create our projects.
My favorite kind of cards are clean and simple designs. They are easy to create but can still have that look of elegance to make it extra special. For my card design today, I chose to use the new Pansy Patch stamp set for my sentiment and I heat embossed it with Silver embossing powder to step it up. I paired it with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, a staple die set for me, which I am happy to say has carried over from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. The shapes of the dies are wonderful for framing sentiments of all sizes. I chose the beautiful Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In Color as my new color and I love how it coordinates with Rich Razzleberry from the Regals Collection. I embossed the Fresh Freesia cardstock layer with the new Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder to give add texture to the background. The floral detail is stunning and turns a simple design into a simply Wow card.

This beautiful card layout works well for a variety of occasions and by changing the colors, you can personalize it to suit the person receiving it. The dry embossed background adds subtle texture while the silver embossing for the sentiment adds a touch of elegance. The sparkle of Basic Rhinestone Jewels completes this clean and simple design. I love being able to combine my well loved Stampin' Up! supplies with the new products in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. It's a great way to add variety to my projects without breaking my budget.
