Kick up your heels!


First, I stamped the celebrating donkey in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and colored him with Light and Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. Full disclosure on his intricate cutting will be on my January 1st blog, which made him fun to attach with Dimensionals.

The donkey is surrounded by a wreath, created with two Wreath Builder Dies. The colorful berries were cut from Berry Delightful Designer Paper.


The leaves were cut from Brushed Metallic Cardstock, and “inlaid” in Plaid Tidings Designer Paper.  In order to do this, I used the same die to cut the leaves from the plaid paper, then filled in the “holes” with the metallic die-cut. Then, I glued the circle of berries on top.

The background is a Crumb Cake card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″ with a Whisper White Cardstock layer, 4″ X 5 1/4″. The Plaid Tidings Designer Paper is 1/8″ smaller to give it a 1/16″ white border.


The word “Happy” is from the Peace & Joy Stamp Set, stamped in Rich Razzelberry Ink, cut by hand, and attached with Dimensionals. “2021” was made with Playful Alphabet Dies, Crumb Cake Cardstock, and Foam Adhesive Sheets.
