Welcome to the New At SU May Blog Hop as we showcase the beautiful new 2022-2024 In Colors now available in the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. Our talented Design Team members will be sharing their wonderful projects and ideas to help inspire you.
It's so exciting to get to play with these beautiful new In Colors and I challenged myself to create a project using all 5 of these wonderful, vibrant colors. For this card, I chose to use the new Sweet Songbird Bundle, which is so cute and perfect for these fun colors. The windows were created using the Picture This Dies and I embossed the card front using the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder to add some texture to the design. I love how the 2022-2024 In Colors, especially with the stamped images using the Classic Stampin' Pads.

This card design is great for celebrating special occasions and I love the variety of sentiments available in the Sweet Songbirds stamp set. I loved creating the cute birds using Tahitian Tide for the main body and then stamping off once with Sweet Sorbet to color the belly of the birds. The beaks were colored with the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blend Marker to help them pop. I used Soft Suede ink to stamp the branches and the nest and used the Party Parakeet ink for the leaves. For the flowers, I used Sweet Sorbet and Orchid Oasis inks to add some color to the background. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image with White embossing powder onto an Orchid Oasis sentiment label die cut with the Stylish Shapes Dies. I love that this label fit perfectly inside the center window of the card design. For a touch of bling, I added small Iridescent Rhinestones to the center so the flowers for a bit of sparkle. To add some dimension, I popped up the card front layer with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and centered it onto the stamped Basic White layer. This cute card design is so cheerful and is sure to brighten someone's day.

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.
