Going on vacation is great, but it’s also nice to come back home. I missed my stamps while I was away! Luckily I had some time to play today, in between loads of laundry. I managed to make a card combining two challenges! This week’s Friday Mashup is to make a New Year’s card that sparkles. I decided to combine that with the SUO Challenge for this week, which is to get “punchy.” I had been wanting to make a New Year’s card, so this was the perfect opportunity. Until I realized that I don’t seem to have any Happy New Year stamps! So I used the numbers from the Look Who’s Turning stamp set, and punched them out with the Pennant Punch. (Note: I embossed first and then punched — much easier!) The numbers are all one stamp, so I used my VersaMarker to ink up just the one I wanted, then cleaned it well in between.
Stamps: Look Who’s Turning
Paper: Basic Black, Mocha Morning Specialty Designer Series Paper, Silver Glimmer Paper
Other: Petite Pennants Builder Punch, Silver Embossing Powder, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I don’t know if you can tell, but the background paper is flocked. It’s from the Mocha Morning Specialty Designer Series paper, which is almost too gorgeous to use! I hope that you will stop back tomorrow for the Stampin’ Addicts Occasions Mini Blog Hop. It’s going to be great! Best wishes for a fabulous 2012!
