New Horizons Suite!

Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a beautiful card featuring products from the New Horizons Suite! Whether it’s the stamp set, coordinating dies, stunning designer series paper, ribbon, or the pebble enamel shapes, I absolutely LOVE this suite! It’s a toss-up between the dies and the enamel shapes that are my new favorite, but all together the inspiration just came to me! That’s when I know that I will be creative, but I also saw some other product coordination from the 2022 JJ Mini Catalog, which is always a plus! Since we had another snowstorm this weekend on the East Coast, I figured it was fitting for my first card to feature snowcapped mountains! Lol I used one sheet of the 6” x 6” New Horizons DSP to make four cards, using two slightly different designs by repurposing the leftover mountain detailed die-cut and changing the cardstock for the mountain!

I used this design from the New Horizons 6” x 6” DSP, cutting it into four 3” x 3” squares:

The base layer for the card front is Basic White cardstock embossed with the Bark 3D Embossing Folder:

For the rest of the card front, you will need:

1. On the 3” x 3” piece of DSP, use your Stamparatus to stamp the birds stamp in Blackberry Bliss ink two times. Stamping twice will give a nice, dark image on the DSP.

2. Cut a 3 ¼” x 3 ¼” piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, this will be layered under the above DSP piece.

3. Use the solid mountain die to die-cut from Fresh Freesia cardstock and the detailed die to die-cut from Basic White cardstock. *DO NOT discard the inside pieces from the detailed die-cut, these will be used for the alternative card at the end.

4. Use the hills die to die-cut from Vellum cardstock and color with a Blending Brush and Misty Moonlight ink.

5. You will need three Rhinestone Basic Jewels, two 3mm and one 5mm, and color them with a Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends, not pictured.

I used liquid glue to adhere the two layering mountain die-cuts together and then a small line of glue along the bottom backside to adhere the Vellum cardstock to make it look like a body of water. I then decided to give the snow a little sparkle with my Wink of Stella pen, which is a little hard to see:

I adhered the layered square to the middle of the embossed cardstock base layer, adhered the layered die-cuts centered towards to bottom of the square, adhered this to a Blackberry Bliss cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ¼” and scored at 4 ¼”, and adhered the colored rhinestones as shown:

For the inside, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼” and stamp the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink:

For the coordinating envelope, simple stamp the birds stamp in the corner using Blackberry Bliss ink:

For the alternative card, I die-cut the mountains in Misty Moonlight cardstock, adhered the cut-out pieces, used Wink of Stella on the snow, and colored the rhinestones with a Dark Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends:

This card is perfect for any occasion, just use any of the five sentiment stamps for the inside! I don’t know if anyone else has thought of the alternative way to use the detailed mountain die-cuts, I’m sure someone has, but the idea came to me when I was designing the card with the die-cuts! I thought, “wait a minute, what if I do this….?” I probably wouldn’t normally use them because small die-cuts can be tedious, however, since there is one large and two small pieces, they were pretty easy to adhere to the cardstock and I just used the putty tip of my Take Your Pick tool to place the two small pieces!
