Kylie Bertucci's Monthly International Blog Highlights May 2023

Welcome to Kylie Bertucci's Monthly International Blog Highlights for May as we showcase amazing Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world. We will be sharing our projects and ideas with the theme "Thank You" to help inspire you to create your own beautiful projects to send to family and friends. A hand made card is a wonderful way to show the people in your life how much you appreciate them.
With the launch of the new 2023-2024 Annual Catalog this month, I thought I would design a Thank You card using the beautiful Timeless Arrangements Bundle. This wonderful bundle is so versatile and I love the combination of sentiment images and coordinating dies to help create pretty card designs. I paired this bundle with the new Countryside Blossoms Embossing Folder, which adds wonderful texture to the background and I think coordinates with the die cuts in this bundle. With the new Color Refresh, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to explore new color combinations and I really love how Soft Sea Foam and the new Bubble Bath coordinate with the pretty Moody Mauve. This lovely design has the look of Spring wildflowers similar to the ones starting to bloom in the mountains here in Colorado.

This pretty Spring Thank You card requires minimal stamping and I love how the layers of die cuts provide the look of Spring flowers growing from behind the sentiment label. I stamped the Thank You sentiment using Moody Mauve Classic ink onto the Basic White label to create the focal image for the card. I added the leaves and flowers behind the sentiment label, offsetting them so that the flowers fit in between the leaves. The card front has been embossed using the Countryside Blossoms Embossing Folder and I love the wonderful texture it adds to the background. I attached the sentiment label to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals, making sure to center it. To embellish the card design, I added a small bow to the top left corner using the Sweet Sorbet Metallic Woven Ribbon. I love that this ribbon works beautifully with this color combination.
