We Create January Blog Hop Very Last Chance Plus Sneak Peeks

Welcome to the We Create January Blog Hop as we start off the New Year with the theme "Last Chance Plus Sneak Peeks". With just a few days left to take advantage of the great savings from the Last Chance July-December Mini Catalog Retirement List, we have decided to combine some of our retiring favorites with Sneak Peeks from the new catalogs that will launch January 5th. It's a great opportunity to see how you can combine something old with something new to spark your creativity.
To celebrate the start of 2023, I decided to create a beautiful Wedding card, combining retiring products from the Splendid Day Suite with the new Something Fancy Bundle that will be available beginning January 5th, in the new January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. I love the simple elegance of the lovely foil designs in the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper and I think it works beautifully with the fonts in the sentiment from the Something Fancy stamp set. I also feel like this sentiment applies to this time of year as we look forward to the New Year and all that it brings us.

This pretty clean and simple card is easy to create and works well for so many special occasions. I love that the sentiments in the Something Fancy stamp set cover so many of the cards that I create on a regular basis and the coordinating Something Fancy Dies means that I have the right sized dies available to die cut my sentiments without having to search through my stash. The Fresh Freesia foil paper is the star of the show for this card design and I accented it with detailed leaves die cuts from Soft Sea Foam cardstock to help step up the layout. The Soft Sea Foam Seam Binding Ribbon is so soft and is perfect for tying bows as well as an accent underneath the sentiment label. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image with White embossing powder onto the Fresh Freesia cardstock label and added it to a Basic White label to help it stand out. The Basic Rhinestones add that touch of bling without being too over the top. I hope that you will check out the retiring products from the Splendid Day Suite and take advantage of the great savings on several of the products I used today. They are available only while supplies last or until January 4th when this sale ends.
