Kylie Bertucci's Monthly International Blog Highlights January 2022

Welcome to Kylie Bertucci's Monthly International Blog Highlights as we showcase Thank You cards to help you get started in the New Year. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their ideas and projects to help spark your creativity to create your own wonderful projects. 
My Thank You card design features new products from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog, which launches January 4th. I wanted to create a masculine Thank You card using the new Wildlife Wonder stamp set. I just love the beautiful images in this stamp set and the animals remind me of the wildlife we have here in Colorado. I paired the stamp set with the Layering Dioramas Dies and the Painted Textures 3D Embossing Folder.  For this card design, I chose Misty Moonlight and Smoky Slate cardstock.

This clean and simple card is easy to create with just a few simple supplies. The Painted Textures 3D Embossing Folder adds wonderful texture to the background that makes me think of the texture of rocks. I stamped the images with Basic Gray Classic ink and I used Stampin' Blends Markers to add a touch of color to the wolf and the foreground. I kept the embellishments nice and simple, using Crumb Cake Baker's Twine from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack, wrapping it twice around the card front and tying on knot on the right side. I attached the sentiment label over the top of the twine with Stampin' Dimensionals and added the focal image towards the top right corner also using Stampin' Dimensionals. For the finishing touch, I added two of the Basic Gray Matte Dots from the Classic Matte Dots to embellish the sentiment label.
