Stamping With Friends May Blog Hop 2023-2024 Annual Catalog

Welcome to the Stamping With Friends May Blog Hop as we celebrate the new 2023-2024 Annual Catalog and all the amazing new products inside. Our wonderful Design Team members will be sharing their projects and ideas to help you get excited about the wonderful new products and colors in the new catalog.
Today I am sharing a pretty card I designed using the new Circle Sayings Bundle for a recent 2023-2024 Annual Catalog Swap. I love the images and sentiments in the stamp set and I am so excited to have a new coordinating circle punch. For the background, I used the new Countryside Blossoms Embossing Folder to add some wonderful texture. This is a wonderful clean and simple birthday card design using a soft and pretty color combination of Highland Heather with the returning Fresh Freesia and Basic White.

This beautiful birthday card is simple to create and I love how the focal circles pop against the embossed background. Highland Heather and Fresh Freesia look so pretty together and I love how the layers of circles help make the embossed focal image pop. I chose to use White embossing powder for the embossing on the Fresh Freesia circle and added some Basic Rhinestones for a touch of bling. The new 2 3/8" Circle Punch layers beautifully with the circle dies in the Stylish Shapes Dies set. This color combination is perfect for a soft and pretty birthday card but you could easily transform this design into a masculine card, just by changing the colors. The Circle Sayings Bundle is so versatile and a great addition to your crafting collection.
