2018 Stampin’ Up! Large Numbers and Tutti-Frutti Pineapples

 

I used Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to cut “2018” using the Large Numbers die set, and doubled them for thickness. In case you are wondering, Peetie is sitting on the zero. It was his idea to hang the letters (string ties are from the At Home With You stamp set), like his friend did on a previous project.

Here is the one Peetie liked:

The Christmas Bird Named Noel

 

We were looking through the Tutti-Frutti DSP for a colorful backdrop when we saw a wonderful print with pineapples on it. I’ve been thinking about pineapples since we recently had our palm tree trimmed, and friends were remarking that it looked like a carrot or a skinny pineapple.

 

So, I did a little research, and Siri told me that the Chinese word for Pineapple is “ong-lai,” which means “fortune cones.” This paper seemed perfect for a Happy New Year card. And, the Ticket Tear Punch even has a pineapple feel about it.

 

Peetie was colored with Stampin’ Blends in Light and Dark Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Dark Calypso Coral. These alcohol pens make coloring so much fun!

 

Are you wanting to know where Tweetie is? She was busy writing the sentiment inside. It’s from a retired stamp set, Balloon Adventures, but she insisted it was the right thing to say.

 

Peetie and Tweetie wanted to wish everyone at the Global Design Project a Happy New Year, so I said I would post it for them.

 

I agree, it’s the perfect sentiment, wishing you all “another year full of adventures.”
