Welcome to December's Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! This month the theme is Birthdays, I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has created! Please be sure to hop all the way around for lots of inspirational projects created by the design team. 

I love great fonts and sentiments and the Special Moments Stamp Set (158081) from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration 2022 has 21!

Sale-A-Bration 2022 starts on 4 January and continues until 28 February 2022. The Special Moments Stamp Set is FREE with an order of $220 NZD!

To create my card, I started by colouring a piece of Basic White Cardstock using a Blending Brush and Pool Party from the Stampin' Pad. When I was happy with the coverage I moved onto Balmy Blue and then Night of Navy. Next I die cut the leaves from these coloured pieces of cardstock. 

I embossed a piece of Basic White Cardstock with the Greenery folder and adhered the die cut leaves, trimming any pieces hanging over the edges.  I flicked the Wink of Stella over this to add some sparkle and five dots from the Polished Dots (Item 158134 - available 4 January 2022 from the upcoming Mini Catalogue). Then I adhered this panel to the card front.

I stamped "Happy Birthday" in Night of Navy ink and adhered it to the card over a white bow, using Dimensionals.

I love the colour combination and think it would make a perfect birthday card for a male or female but I'm going to make it again using more "girly" colours to see how it looks!

Next up in today's hop is my lovely and inspirational friend Janneke in The Netherlands, I'm looking forward to seeing what gorgeous creation Janneke has to share with us.

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Roll:

The 2022 Jan-June Mini Catalogue is just about here and it is full of lots of new products including eight gorgeous Designer Series Papers.

I am offering a Designer Series Paper share (including a free gift) from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalogue and I would love to have you join. I will be placing my order as soon as possible on the 4th of January so I hope to have the shares posted by mid January 2022.

The Designer Series Paper comes in three different sizes,12" x 12" (30.5 x 30.5 cm), 4" x 6" (10.2 x 15.2 cm) and 6" x 6" (15.2 x 15.2 cm) and I divide these up as follows:

I cut the 12" x 12" sheets in half (for a quarter share) so you are getting a 6" x 12" sheet. This is equal to three 6" x 4" panels, the perfect size for a card.

The 4" x 6" sheets are in a pack of 48 sheets, so you will get 12 sheets of this paper.

The 6" x 6" sheets are also in a pack of 48 sheets, so you will get 12 sheets of this paper too.

Designer Series Paper Quarter Share - $55 plus postage of $7.20.
Designer Series Paper Half Share - $110 plus postage of $7.20.

Rural postage is an additional $4.30.

I have detailed below the papers and the number of sheets of each pack you will receive.
  • Sweet Talk - 6 sheets of 6" x 12" 
  • Flowering Fields - 6 sheets of 6" x 12"
