HAPPY NEW YEAR! Did you stay up until midnight to bring in the new year? Here’s to a year of better health for all. Jan. 4 means the new Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog goers live for customers. Today I’m showcasing the New Horizons 6×6 DSP that is in this catalog. It is stunning ~ so different. I’ve created two sympathy cards with this DSP: same format but rearranged somewhat. Let’s take a peek.

New Horizons 6×6 DSP

Isn’t this DSP stunning? These two cards have been created for a woman and her adult daughter whose husband and father passed away just prior to Christmas. He loved to paint and the family loves color, mostly purple and pinks, and this seemed perfect for this. The sentiment on the card at left comes from the After the Storm stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on a Basic White strip then punched with the Label Me Fancy Punch. Love the fonts in this set!

Left card: after adhering the DSP to Fresh Freesia card stock, I wrapped a length of Open Weave Ribbon in Soft Succulent around both pieces & tied a knot. I then attached the sentiment with dimensionals & added three Garden Gems in green to the banner. This panel was then added to a prepared card base with dimensionals: Thick Basic White with Blackberry Bliss adhered with liquid glue. The card front was now complete!

Right card: DSP was added to Blackberry Bliss card stock with liquid glue; wrapped with a length of Open Weave Ribbon in Fresh Freesia and tied with a knot. The sentiment was stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink on a Basic White piece using the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set. It was die cut with the Layering Circles Dies and three Garden Gems in the green were added. This was adhered to a scalloped layer of Blackberry Bliss die cut with the Layering Circles Dies. This sentiment circle was attached with dimensionals over the ribbon. I also stamped three birds in Evening Evergreen ink using the After the Storm stamp set. For the background layer, I stamped the large clouds from the After the Storm stamp set, mimicking the pattern on the DSP: Polished Pink at the top, then Blackberry Bliss followed by Evening Evergreen and finally Misty Moonlight. Here’s a photo of that panel.

After the Storm stamp set

This panel was then added to the Soft Succulent card base and the top panels added with dimensionals – and this card front was complete.

For the insides of these two cards…

I used After the Storm stamp set for both of these cards on the inside: Blackberry Bliss and Bumblebee inks for the card on the left; Polished Pink, Bumblebee and Blackberry Bliss for the card on the right. The birds were stamped in Misty Moonlight on this card.

For the envelopes I cut a panel each of the Blackberry Bliss and Soft Succulent card stocks and ran them through the Tasteful Textile embossing folder and adhered them to the envelope flaps.

Two very similar cards but different and I love them both. The DSP looks like a water scene to me, which is perfect since the man who passed away was a sailor :O)
