Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Brand New

 Welcome to the GSF Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin' Up Demonstrators who love what we do and share what we love. The theme for this month is Brand New. The 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue is brand new but so is a baby and puppies! I have a new Stampin' Up! Bundle & some gorgeous new Designer Series Paper that pairs well with the Bundle to share with you. 

The Inspired Thoughts Bundle & the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper (DSP) have been used to create this card. The sentiments serve more than one purpose, it could be a birthday card or a congratulations card. I do feel that it has a masculine feel to it , or maybe for a garden theme. The Inspired Thoughts Stamp set is Sentiment Set and the Inspiring Canopy Dies has 3 bare branched trees and some foliage dies that simulate leafy areas on a tree. I opted for a blue sky paper and used the green watercolor like paper from the DSP to create an orchard look to the card. I added some of the gold Genial Gems to simulate Golden Delicious Apples in the trees.

I hope you liked my take on this month's theme. Now it is time to Take a look at Rachel's "Brand New" inspiration.

  1. I love your card! Did not see the gems as apples at first, I was thinking rain drops since it is raining here. :) Great job with those trees!

  2. I never would have thought to place those gems in the tree leaves, but they really complete this card! Thanks for sharing :-D

  3. That’s an adorable idea! Perfect placement of the gems.

  4. Love your idea for the apples!

  5. Amazing card, as always, Jan. I love the DSP for the background and had completely forgotten about this design but it's perfect for the blue sky. Great pop of bling on those apples too. Thanks for sharing x

  6. Wonderful card! Love the gems you've added to the trees for that extra touch.
