As the year 2013 comes to an end, I would like to thank you all for following my blog and helping my creativity to flow! I wish you a great year 2014, filled with love, happiness and health! May the new year brings you lots of joy and time to create!!!
Here’s a special card I made for all of you to celebrate the new year:
I hope you like the “Gold theme” here! I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set with Metallic Gold ink, the Everything Eleanor stamp, heat embossed with gold powder, and the Gold glimmer paper for the “2014” numbers. I also used the new Gold “Watercolor Wonder” Washi Tape (available very soon in the Occasion Mini-catalogue, starting on January 3rd.)
Stamp set: Gorgeous Grunge, Everything Eleanor stamp, Voeux Mignons, Teeny Tiny Wishes
CS and paper: Baked Brown Sugar, Very Vanilla, Vellum card stock, Gold glimmer paper
Ink: Gold Metallic Encore ink, Versamark, gold embossing powder
Tools: Modern Label punch, Big Shot, Timeless Type Alphabet Junior Sizzlits Dies, heat tool
Accessories: Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape
1. Cut half a sheet ( 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″) of Baked Brown Sugar card stock. Fold in half to make the card base.
2. Cut a Very Vanilla card stock rectangle (4″ x 5-1/8). Stamp the “swirly stamp” from Everything Eleanor with Versamark ink. Cover with Gold embossing powder, shake off the excess and heat with the heat tool until the powder melts. Stamp “ink spatters” using stamps from “Gorgeous Grunge” stamp set with Gold Metallic ink.
3. Cut the numbers 2-0-1-4 with the Big Shot and the Timeless Type Alphabet Junior Sizzlits Dies in Gold Glimmer paper. Glue the numbers on a 1-1/8″ x 3-3/4″ Vellum rectangle. At the back of the vellum, add little pieces of dimensionals behind the numbers to attach it to your card. On the bottom, add a Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape border.
4. Stamp “Happy New Year” and ” Bonne Année!” in Versamark ink. Heat emboss with gold embossing powder. Cut with the Modern Label punch. Adhere on the card with dimensionals.
5. Attach the Very Vanilla card stock on the card base with Snail adhesive.
