Positive Inkers Global Design Team - May 2022

Hello there stamping friends! I’m thrilled to be blog hopping today with the Positive Inkers Global Design TeamWe are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the globe who are super-excited to share our love of creativity. I’m so happy you stopped by today! 

If this is the fist time you are visiting, please let me introduce myself. My name is Anne Marie Hile and I live in San Antonio, Texas. Welcome!
Our theme for this month is: New Products from the 2022-2023 Stampin’ Up® Annual CatalogY’all, I’m SO excited for the new catalog which officially goes “Live” on May 3rd! It’s always so exciting to create with new stamps and there are so many fun sets to choose from. I decided to create with the Brewed for You stamp set and coordinating Brewed Dies for my card. 

*I’ve listed all of the measurements and details for my cards below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this post.
Color Combo: 
I don’t know about you, but I always seem to need masculine cards. We have quite a few friends who are really into “craft” beers or brewing their own beer at home. This bundle was perfect to create some cards to send to them! 

This card started out a lot more simple but then my attention to ALL of the details took over. Haha! I added an embossed/shaded layer behind the beer and hops for a little more interest. The foam on the beer is die cut from the Supple Shimmer Specialty Paper and is WAY cooler in person. Those tilted rectangles took a LOT of restraint on my part as I tend to like my card elements straight…however, for this card, the “tilt” just seemed to work. 

I couldn’t find a DSP that really worked initially but then I found this fun leafy pattern in the Heart & Home DSP. It kind of played off the hops and I think it worked, in the end. Finally a little Linen Thread and Brushed Metallic Accents and it all came together. I hope you love it! 
Card Measurements & Details:
  • Soft Suede Card Base: 5-1/2” x 8-1/2", scored at 4-1/4" and folded in half

  • Basic White Cardstock and Supple Shimmer Specialty Paper: scraps to die cut mug and “foam”, image stamped in Soft Suede and Mango Melody 
Here is a look inside the card. I added another strip of that leafy DSP along with a coordinating sentiment. Of course, I had to add an extra mug of beer inside the card to compliment the sentiment. I actually made a few of these cards to have on hand for some upcoming “guy” birthdays. 

I hope you enjoyed my card today! Please stop by to visit everyone on the hop and leave us a comment to say hello. We’d all love to hear from you and so appreciate you stopping by. Hope you enjoy all of the beautiful projects everyone shared today!
