The Merry Christmas To All stamp set has been used for many Christmas cards, but I also wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year!
I began with a Thick Whisper White card base, layered with Galvanized Metallic Paper for some silvery shine.
Balloons are a must for celebrating on New Year’s Eve, and I found the perfect one in the Blow Out The Candles stamp set. I stamped the balloon, randomly, on the top third of Thick Whisper White cardstock in four colors: Lemon Lime twist, Call me Clover, Pacific Point, and Gorgeous Grape. Then, I added confetti with a die from the Candles and Confetti die set, because you HAVE to have confetti.
TIP: I “stamped-off” the balloons to give them a see-through appearance. This means, I inked the balloon, stamped on a piece of scrap paper, and then stamped the balloon on the card front.
“Wishing” and “You A” are from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set, stamped in Pacific Point and Call Me Clover ink. I used a Rectangle Stitched die for cutting; a new die set from the Occasions catalog that will be available January 3rd, 2019.
“Happy” is from the Merry Christmas die set, cut from Galvanized Metallic Paper, which matches the border.
“NEW YEAR” is from the Labeler Alphabet set, stamped in Gorgeous Grape, fussy cut, and placed on tiny pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals. The letters are slightly askew for character. Besides, it was easier than arranging in a straight line. 😉
This project began with the challenge of using the Merry Christmas To All stamp set. Since I’m a member of the What Will You Stamp Design Team, I wanted to use this stamp set, and show you it can go beyond Christmas. If you own this stamp set, I’d be thrilled if you played along with us, and added your project in our gallery. Clicking on this picture of the stamp set will take you there. I hope to see your contributions!
“New Year’s” is the theme at Festive Friday, so I will share my card there.
