Happy New Year!

Just a quick last minute post to say Happy New Year to all of you. I want to thank you for your support over the last your. Thanks for stopping by to see what I am up to… for leaving a comment… for asking me questions about a layout or technique… but most of all, just for being you.

I am looking forward to 2019. There will be a lot of small changes and a few big changes coming over the next few months. I can’t wait to share them all with you. In the meantime, I will share this close up of the card with you…

Black and gold is the perfect color combination to kick off your New Year Eve celebrations and this card is no exception.

I used the Softly Falling embossing folder to add a bubbly texture to the card base.

Then, I cut the stemware from Very Vanilla cardstock. To emboss the “champagne”, I just pressed the VersaMark pad directly to the triangle piece and used gold embossing powder. I think the fact that it isn’t a perfectly smooth emboss makes it look a little more real.

I cut the “happy” from the Merry Christmas Thinlits using Gold Foil. ** These are retiring and today is your last day to snatch them up if you haven’t already!!! **

The “New Year” sentiment was created using the Make a Difference stamp set. This is the perfect Alphabet set and should be on your Must-Have list. I used the Merry Christmas Thinlits to cut it out as well. I made it smaller by running it through the Big Shot a second time.

And, finally… the gold bubbles at the top of the glass were made using the regular plain ol’ Rhinestone Jewels. I used the Dark Daffodil Delight Blends to color them. With all the colors in the Blends Stampin’ Up! offers, you can make just about any color of coordinating rhinestones that you need!

So… That’s it from me for 2018! Enjoy your night and I will see you next year!!!

Until next time… keep it Simple, Stampers!

🙂 Joanne
