Happy New Year’s Eve! Are you ready for 2017? Well, I’m willing to jump in with both feet. Quite a different approach for me, usually I am dragged in kicking and screaming but, I am excited for a new year and new things.
For today’s card and video, I used the Birthday Blast stamp set and Star Blast Framelits out of the new Occasions Catalog from Stampin’ Up!
Thought it was the perfect set for both a birthday and a New Year’s celebration.
Love the copper foil and copper embossing both look so great with the Basic Black cardstock and Whisper White oval.
I think the sentiment in the Reason for the Season stamp set is so perfect, as it completely sums the real meaning of Christmas.
Got to love the Holly Embossing Folder; it provides just the right added touch of texture.
How beautiful is that shimmer on the watercolored poinsettia? Looks great here, but you should see it in person, awesome!! Amazing what a little spritz of the Champagne Mist All-Purpose Paint from Tsukineko can do for a stamped image.
Did you notice the glimmer on the “snow drift” created with the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies? LOVE IT! I was able to do that with a product called All-Purpose Ink by Tsukineko. You can purchase the ink at Amazon. I fill a spray bottle 3/4 full of rubbing alcohol and 1/2 of the small bottle of All-Purpose Ink. Shake well and mist your card. All I can say is AWESOME.
To avoid getting the spray on my desk I made a spray booth. I just cut foam core (from Joann’s) and taped it together. Then lined the booth with paper. So very simple and it keeps your stamping surface clean.
