HAPPY NEW YEAR!! We made it – it’s 2020! Has your vision improved? Ha ha – see what I did there – vision; 20/20? Yes, bad puns and word play are my thing. I hope that your celebration last night was good, which means that you’re feeling okay today. I stayed home with Netflix and a bottle of wine, and made sure my boys took taxis or transit (they do that, anyway. they’re responsible people). Yesterday, I shared a card with you that used the Pretty Pink Posh Happy New Year stamp set – at least, one of the sentiments from it. Today’s card uses the other large sentiment, and lots of the fun images.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
I had lots of fun colouring the images for this card. And of course, I used the matching Happy New Year dies for die cutting.
Isn’t this fun?! You could use these images for any celebration – just change the sentiment. But really, these are the quintessential New Year’s images, aren’t they?
Start with a piece of white cardstock. Stamp the images in Nocturne ink, cover with clear embossing powder, and then heat set. For the colours, I chose an assortment of alcohol markers. For the gold champagne & noise maker, I pulled out my Gold Leaf Pen. How fun is that? It gives such a solid gold coverage, and is super rich looking. After colouring, use the matching Happy New Year dies to die cut each image; set them aside. On a dark blue panel, stamp the sentiment in Versamark ink towards the bottom. Next, cover it with gold embossing powder, and heat set. Use foam tape to attach the die cut elements – have fun arranging them! For a bit of extra shine, glue on some gold sequins and stars. It still seemed to need something else, so I brought out my gold leaf pen again, and added some gold dots randomly around the panel.
To finish off the card, attach a piece of gold foil paper behind the upper right & lower left corners of the panel. Finally, attach the panel to a light green card base.
I just had to throw some extra sequins around the card when I took the picture.
I’d like to take this opportunity to say ‘thank you’, for your support this past year – or longer, if you’ve been following me for a while. I hope that I’ve inspired you to expand your creative horizons, try new things, and just have fun. I have really appreciated you spending your valuable time with me. Happy New Year to you I hope that this year brings all that you hope for!
