West Coast Creators Blog Hop - January to June Catalogue (February 2022)

You guessed it, team blog hop time again! This month we are featuring all things January - June Mini Catty.  SO many amazing products, I honestly had to do eenie-meenie to figure out which to showcase, lol!

I went with the Artfully Composed Suite of products which you can find on pages 32 - 34. I also used this suite for my team swap card so it is clear it is a favourite of mine!

When I first saw this suite of products presented during our virtual conference back in November, I knew they would be part of my first order. I love the DSP, the embellishments, the font used in the stamp set....really, just everything.

This layout was actually inspired by another one of our hoppers - stampinwiththebees. I loved how she used the Stitched With Whimsy die to show off her central image so I thought I'd give it a go!

I really love the Pale Papaya with these greens and might never have paired them up if they weren't in the DSP together. 
I used 4 of the dies from the bundle (3 of the foliage & the stitched edge die) as well as one image stamp and the greeting stamp. I layered this edge piece of DSP with Stampin' Dimensionals which gives a neat feel to the card.

Initially I had stamped the Just Jade image on Basic White cardstock but I found it to be a bit overpowering.  So I instead, stamped it on Vellum and then heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.  I love how it looks. The greeting is stamped in Versamark on Pale Papaya, heat embossed with White Embossing Powder & fussy cut. For the ribbon, I took a length of the Just Jade Gingham Ribbon and cut it in half. I love how this finished the card off.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Be sure to 'hop' to as many of the others as you can! 
You will be so inspired by all the amazing designs!
