January-June 2022 Mini Catalog Blog Hop

Welcome to the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog Blog Hop as we showcase products to inspire you explore this wonderful new catalog. There truly is something for everyone and this is a great opportunity to start off the New Year on a new creative journey. 
At the start of a New Year, I love to create birthday cards to restock my stash for birthdays throughout the year. In the new mini catalog, there are so many great stamp sets for creating birthday cards and it was hard to choose just one for today's blog hop. In the end, I chose the cute Catch You Later stamp set as it has fun images and sentiments that work well for a variety of occasions. I loved the sweet little monkeys, so I chose that image for my focal point and paired it with the birthday sentiment in the stamp set. I used the Layering Diorama Dies to create the focal label and for the sentiment, I used one of the Scalloped Contours Dies. The background was created with the fun Sunshine & Rainbows 6"x6" Designer Series Paper, which you can earn Free with a qualifying $50 order during Sale-a-bration.

This fun birthday card is simple to create and the bright, cheerful colors work well for all ages. I colored the main image with Stampin' Blends Markers and used Light Pool Party to color the background. To create a frame for the focal image, I layered it onto a slightly larger die cut piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock and added it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment with Tuxedo Black ink onto the Scalloped Contours Label and added it to the bottom right corner of the card front. For a touch of bling, I colored five of the Basic Rhinestone Jewels with the Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends Marker and added them to the card. I love how this card design came together and how well these colors work together.
