Around The World On Wednesday December Blog Hop Something New Something Used

Welcome to the Around the World On Wednesday December Blog Hop as we share projects with the theme, "Something New, Something Used". It's hard to believe this is our last hop for 2022 but I think you will love the wonderful projects and ideas that our Design Team members will be sharing to help inspire you to get creative. 
For my card design, I decided to pair the new Friendly Gnomes stamp set from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog, with the Gnomes Dies which are carrying over from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. I love that the several of the dies fit the cute gnomes in the new Friendly Gnomes stamp set. For my design, I wanted to create a cute Valentine's Day card using one of the cute gnome images and the Love You sentiment. To create the layout, I used the Framed Florets Dies with one of the designs from the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper. These products are very definitely something I have "used" a lot to create projects over the past two months and I love how they fit with my card theme. This card design is a wonderful example of how you can combine something new, with products that you already own to create new projects.

This cute Valentine's Day card was so much fun to create and I love that one of the designs in the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper, worked perfectly for this card design. I used the detailed hearts die to create the frame in the designer series paper with the cute little hearts and added the Cherry Cobbler Oval frame to the center to frame the focal oval. For the gnome, I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Basic White cardstock and colored it with Stampin' Blends Markers. I die cut the image out with the coordinating die from the Gnomes Dies and attached it to the Basic White focal oval with Stampin' Dimensionals. to create the sentiment, I stamped the image with Cherry Cobbler Classic ink onto the Blushing Bride sentiment label and attached it to the bottom of the oval with Stampin' Dimensionals, just below the gnome's feet. I decided not to add any embellishments to my card design, preferring to let the hearts frame stand out. 
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 old favorites with new products coming soon in the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. It's a great way to show some love to some of the products you already have and give them new life when combined with new options.
