Welcome to May’s NC Demos Blog Hop! The theme for this month is “New Kids on the Block”!!  Who here was a fan of NKOTB back in the day? Well, we are not talking about those new kids! Haha!! We are talking about all the newest stamp sets that are available in the new 2023-2024 Annual catalog!! I’m so glad you have joined me and the other NC Stampin’ Up! demonstrators as we share our projects using some of these new stamp sets! There are so many awesome sets to choose from!! I just can’t wait to see everyone’s projects and what sets they decided to use!!

I chose the Beautiful Balloon stamp set for my card. As you can see below, there is a set of dies that coordinate with this stamp set. You can get both the stamp set and the dies for a 10% discount when you purchase the bundle. You can also get the whole Bright & Beautiful Suite Collection which includes the bundle plus a pack of 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and the Gold Celebrations 12″ x 12″ Speciality paper. For my card, I used the stamp set, dies, and the cute 6″ x 6″ DSP!


When designing my card, I decided to go with a monochromatic look! I used the newish color Blueberry Bushel! If you’ve been around Stampin’ Up! awhile, you probably remember that it was one of our In Colors awhile back! It’s definitely one of my favorite blues and I thought it would be great for my card especially since I was designing it for my “For the Guys” card class for this month. I love how bright and cheery the balloon turned out!

Here is a free Card Tutorial for you to download or print! I hope you enjoy using it to create your own card!
