Cute Card Thursday - Happy New Year


This week at Cute Card Thursday, our theme is Happy New Year! This worked out well as we will be celebrating Christmas on New Year's Day with my in-laws.

Stamps: New Years Glass, Happy New Year (SU!)
Paper: Tim Holtz Lost and Found
Accessories: Prima Flowers, McGill punch, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Game Spinners, MS Branch punch

I stamped my New Years Glass image onto the Idea-ology clock face and colored it with Copics. I like the translucent look when the glass is stamped right on the designer paper. 

I stamped Happy New Year on a calendar cut from the Idea-ology paper. 

I love the look of sprays of distressed flowers. The great thing is, with punches, you can create a variety of looks with designer paper. 

I am entering this in the TOMIC challenge - Happy New Year

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day!

This is my last Christmas card of the year. I made this card for my sister who was a ballet dancer for the better part of 18 years. 

Stamps:  Ballerina Tilda
Paper: I made the background paper using a glitter technique, masking and my Xyron.
Accessories: Snowflake punch, Cricut Lacey Labels, Ribbon, Pearls, Gems, Liquid Pearls, Branch punch, flowers, Stickles.

I colored Tilda with distress inks.

I added flowers to my snowflakes and included some branch punches. 

This close-up shows the lovely effect the glitter masking creates. I card looked gorgeous under my sister's lights. Similar to the way a diamond twinkles under good lights, the glitter just lit up.

I am entering this card in the following challenges: 

 I hope you have a safe and VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
