Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!

Welcome to a Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. Our blog hop theme was a hard one for me this week. We are all featuring our favorite new designer paper from the Annual Catalog. Oh my, it's ALL beautiful but I had to pick one right? I went with the Garden Impressions Designer Paper. The colors are so vivid and vibrant. This is my card using one of the pattern sheets:

All my card needed was a little strip of the designer paper to add some beauty alongside the stamped sentiment layers. I used the Around The Corner stamp set and the image does exactly what the title implies...stamps around a corner:

I fussy-cut the two little birthday hats that I stamped using Coastal Cabana Ink on Coastal Cabana Cardstock and they both fit perfectly on the image that I stamped using Highland Heather Ink. Don't you just love our two new purples? The birthday hats were glued in place using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. I love those too!

To complete my card, I added some Iridescent Sequins in the background and some Silver Baker's Twine on the edge of the designer paper. here are the measurements of my layers:

  • Card Base: Bermuda Bay Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score at 5-1/2".
  • Layer #2: Coastal Cabana Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4".
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 5" x 3-3/4"
  • Layer #4: Garden Impressions Designer Paper 5" x 1".
