New Year’s Dreams


Normally, I don’t begin with the sentiment, but the words from the Playful Penguin Stamp Set would take center stage. I stamped “May your New Year’s dreams come true” in Memento Black Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and used an Ornate Frames Die for cutting. I love the beautiful font in the fancy frame! Don’t you?


The bottom half of the card front is a piece of Vellum Cardstock, embossed by the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder.

The top half has a swirl that I found in the Stargazing stamp Set. I colored the Red Rubber stamp with Stampin’ Write Markers in five “Bright” colors, and stamped on Whisper White cardstock, leaving a wonderful, rainbow image.


To complete the card, I added sequins from two assortments, Woven Threads and Iridescent, matching the colors in the swirl.



I was inspired by two challenges:

The penguins are so cute, this sentiment is easy to overlook, and I’m so glad I found it.

Another discovery is on page 31 of the new 2020 Mini Catalog; a stamp set with sentiments sized to fit the Ornate Frames perfectly! Yay! The Ornate Frames are carrying over from the Holiday Catalog.

So, you can add Perfectly Framed #151668 to your “want list,” and buy the Ornate Frames today!
