Stamping With Friends December Blog Hop July-December 2022 Catalog Retirement

Welcome to the Stamping With Friends December Blog Hop as we showcase retiring products from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. Our wonderful Design Team members will be sharing their projects and ideas to help inspire you to explore the amazing products in this catalog before they disappear. 
For today's card design, I chose to use one of my favorite retiring Christmas stamp sets, North Pole Mischief, to create a fun and whimsical Christmas card. I paired it with the retiring Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper which is a Host Reward you can earn free with a qualifying order or party. For this card design, I wanted a twist on the traditional Christmas colors and paired the Poppy Parade in the designer series paper with Granny Apple Green cardstock for the card base and frame for the focal image. I love to color with Stampin' Blends Markers and this image was so much fun to color and bring to life. I think this Christmas card design is perfect for the cat lover who may have a mischievous feline in their lives.

This clean and simple card design is simple to create and so much fun. I love the bright, cheerful color combination for this card that is sure to brighten someone's day when they receive it. I stamped the focal image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the Basic White oval and colored it with Stampin' Blends. For the sentiment, I chose to cut the sentiment label with one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies using Pool Party cardstock to tie in with the color of the water in the fishbowl. I heat embossed the sentiment with White embossing powder and gently sponged some Pool Party ink around the outside edge to help make the sentiment pop. To assemble the card, I attached the designer series paper to the card base and then added the Granny Apple Green oval frame to the center of the card front. Next, I attached the Basic White oval to the center of the frame and added the Pool Party sentiment label with Stampin' Dimensionals, lining it up with the bottom of the cat and the fishbowl stand. To embellish the card, I added Gold self adhesive sequins for a touch of bling. This cute card is so much fun and I am so happy with how it turned out.
