Kre8tors April Blog Hop Free For All

It's time to hop along with the Kre8tors April Blog Hop and this month our theme is "Free For All" as we get to explore our creativity. As we come to the end of one catalog and prepare for the beginning of a new one, there are so many wonderful possibilities for our Design Team members to share with you. I hope our projects inspire you to get creative. 
For my card design, I wanted to combine something old with something new. I combined the retiring Bloom Where You're Planted Designer Series Paper with a Sneak Peek of a new bundle, Bottled Happiness, that will be in the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. It was also an opportunity to use one of my favorite browns, Cinnamon Cider, before it too retires soon. This card design would be a perfect masculine card and while my sentiment leans more to a "Just Because" kind of card, you could adapt it for a birthday or even for Father's Day.

This clean and simple card design has a wonderful natural color palette. I love the way that Cinnamon Cider works with Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen and the vintage feel they give to this design. The woodgrain pattern in the designer series paper provided the perfect background for this card and I sponged the tag with Cinnamon Cider Classic ink to give it a worn, aged look. I stamped the bottle onto a piece of Basic White cardstock and punched it out with the coordinating punch. I stamped the label with Cinnamon Cider classic ink onto Basic White cardstock and stamped the sentiment with Evening Evergreeen Classic ink onto the label before fussy cutting it out and attaching it to the bottle. I stamped the sentiment with Soft Succulent Classic ink onto the bottom of the tag and added the bottle to the tag with Stampin' Dimensionals. I tied a piece of the Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon to the tag and then added the tag to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. I love the dimension and texture of this card design and think this card is a perfect combination of old and new as we transition from one Annual Catalog to another. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to combine some of your favorite products from the retiring catalog with some of the new products coming in the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. There are so many wonderful options to explore.
