Before seeing today’s card, I don’t want you to miss the Giant Year-End Closeout.
You can click here to see the list of retiring items. The Year-End Closeout begins TODAY December 8th, ending January 4th. Order early, before things sell out. The list is long, but to make it easier, it’s in order by page number (August-December 2020 Mini Catalog).
Now, for today’s sneak peek of exciting, new products! When you live in a card-making world, you find inspiration everywhere! For instance, I was admiring my daughter’s blouse, and the new Art Gallery Bundle came to mind. This bundle is on the front cover of the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog, and sure to be a favorite. I combined it with a sketch, and this card developed.
Balmy Blue Ink was my color choice to design background paper with an Art Gallery stamp. It was easy to stamp six rows of this beautiful image on Whisper White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, and glue the layer to a Balmy Blue card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.
Then, I used the largest, straight edge, Layering Squares Die to cut Balmy Blue Cardstock, and embossed it with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.
Next, I used the second largest, straight edge, Layering Circles Die to cut Heartwarming Hugs Designer Paper in the red stripe, just like my daughter’s blouse.
The flower on top of the circle was created with two stamps from the Art Gallery Stamp Set, Balmy Blue Ink, Whisper White Cardstock, and a Floral Gallery Die. The die, pictured in the first photo, made the flower very easy to cut, and attach with Dimensionals.
I hadn’t forgotten Poppy Moments Dies, a current Annual Catalog favorite, and I used one of the dies to cut the stamen from Night Of Navy Cardstock.
The sentiment, “I’m thinking of you,” is from the Art Gallery Stamp Set, stamped in Night Of Navy Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with a Floral Gallery Die. I backed it with Night Of Navy Cardstock, 2 3/4″ X 1/2″, so the detailed edge would stand out, as well as match the stamen. You can see the current supplies in my Product List below.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this sneak peek of the Art Gallery Bundle, which will be available January 5, 2021. This is just part of the gorgeous Fine Art Floral Suite on pages 32-34 in the upcoming catalog.
Thank you for the inspiration!
