Global Stamping Friends January Blog Hop New Year New Products

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends January Blog Hop and I am excited to share with you new products and ideas to help you get creative in 2024. With the holidays over for another year, I find myself focusing on all occasion cards like birthdays, thank you, thinking of you that I use throughout the year. The new January-April 2024 Mini Catalog is full of wonderful new products that are perfect for creating these cards and I look forward to sharing some of these with you today to help inspire you.
Today I thought I would share a card design created with one of the hidden gems in the new mini catalog. The new Sweet Thoughts Memories & More Card Pack and coordinating Sweet Thoughts Memories & More Cards and Envelopes are a wonderful option for creating beautiful cards for a variety of occasions, without the stress of having to create them from scratch. The card pack contains beautiful cards in both 3"x4" and 4"x6" and stickers that you can use to decorate the coordinating card bases to create your own unique designs. For my card design, I have used one of the 3"x4" cards along with several stickers to create the basic design. I then added a sentiment using the Sale-a-bration Level 1 Heartfelt Hellos stamp set, a little White Baker's Twine and some Brushed Brass Butterflies to complete the card. I love how easy this card was to create and the fact that I could personalize it using just a few simple supplies to create a card that was special and unique.

Calypso Coral is not a color that I use a lot of so this was a great opportunity to step out of my comfort zone and try new and different color combinations. The Sweet Thoughts Memories & More cards provides a lot of different options and I finally chose to use a simple floral background layer to start my design. I added the floral sticker for my focal design and added it to the left side of the floral card. I wrapped a piece of White Baker's Twine around the bottom of the floral card twice and tied a bow in the center. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image from the Heartfelt Hellos Sale-a-bration stamp set onto Calypso Coral cardstock using White embossing powder and then punched it out using the coordinating Heartfelt Hexagon Punch that can be found in the January-April 2024 Mini Catalog. I attached the floral card to the Calypso Coral card base with Stampin' Dimensionals and then attached the sentiment label towards the bottom right corner of the floral card, overlapping the White Baker's Twine, also using Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish off the design, I added the heart sticker below the sentiment label and several Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card front for a touch of bling. This card design could be used for a variety of occasions such as a birthday card, to help brighten someone's day.
