Happy New Year

January 1, 2017

When I saw the Stampin’ Gal’s Gone Wild sketch challenge for this weekend.  I decided to try and make a Happy New Year card to celebrate the beginning of 2017.

I had the idea to try and make the card look like fireworks.  Not sure if it worked or not but here it is anyway.

I stamped Whisper White card using the stamp from the Star of Light stamp set that has 3 dotted lines.  I stamped it multiple times to create a circle of colour using Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight ink. happy-new-2017-2 The stamped card was then embossed using the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder before being attached to scored and folded Melon Mambo card.

To create the focal panel on the card, I started by wetting a piece of Watercolour Paper with my Aqua Painter.  Then using the Aqua Painter I picked up ink from my Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight ink pads and rubbed the different inks to cover the Watercolour Paper.  I cut Whisper White card using one of the Starlight Thinlit Dieshappy-new-year-2017-3 I used the same stamp from the Star of Light stamp set to add Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight between the circles in the die cut image.  The coloured Watercolour Paper is attached to the back of the die cut Whisper White card, so that the colours show through the die cut image.  The panel is attached to Tempting Turquoise card and then the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped “happy new year” from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set onto Whisper White card using Melon Mambo ink and cut a “v” in one end.  I attached the greeting to Daffodil Delight card and then the card front.

When I look at this card it seems to have a lot going on and is certainly very bright just like the fireworks on New Year’s Eve.   So Happy New Year everyone.  Let’s make it a great one.

Bye for now,

Kris

    I have just seen this post Kris and I have to say it’s one of the best New Year cards I have seen! Love your idea of multiple stamping between the die cuts and the watercolour behind – so on trend! Thanks so much for sharing – and wishing you a very happy 2017!
