Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year Everyone.  I hope 2011 is a great one for everyone.  I have made a Happy New Year’s card.  I usually don’t make New Year’s cards, but something about these stamps just screamed New Years to me.  new years card [1600x1200] I used several different supplies for this card.  For the card base, I used the new grand nestabilities labels 1.  I cut my cardstock to 6 x 12 and folded it in half.  Then I placed the nestie so that just a little bit of it was above the fold.  misc and xmas_0003 [1600x1200] This way your fold will stay intact when you run it through the machine.  I used my new Grand Calibur machine.  This thing cuts great and it’s convenient to be able to cut more than one shape at a time.  misc and xmas_0004 [1600x1200] Here is a picture of the Grand Calibur (ignore the mess on my desk).  The stamps on this card are all from Stamping Scrapping Designs.  new years card [1600x1200] The design stamped on white around the oval is from the Beaded Ovals set.    I then stamped the sentiment Happy New Year which is from the Celebrations Set.  The martini glasses in the brad are also from the Celebrations set.  I colored them with a copic spica marker and then put them into a brad with my chatterbox brad maker.  The final stamp set used on this project is the stitching along the labels 9 die which is from the Dash it All set.  I finished the card off with some rhinestone bling and a glittery flower.  So, Happy New Year everyone!!

Magnolia Stamp Lovers is having an ornament challenge. I decided to do something a little bit different with my ornament project- I made an ornament shaped card.

I cut the card on my cricut Imagine. The card base is from Joys of the Season and I filled it with patterns from the Mr. Frosty cartridge. The colors look so vibrant and I love printing them on textured cardstock. I then colored my Tilda to match the papers. This Tilda is called Chilly Tilda, she is an oldy, but a goody!!! I think she looks so cold. I stamped the sentiment (from the Stamping Scrapping Designs Celebrate set) onto mynestabilities label 4 and then sprayed it with my copic air compressor while it was still in the nestie. I love how this leaves such a nice clean white border around the shape.

It is time for a new challenge at House Mouse and friends. This time of year, everyone is busy so they have decided to make this one an anything goes challenge. You can create any type of House Mouse and Friends project you would like to.
I have decided to make mine a Christmas card.

I used the stamp St. Nick Mouse. I have colored the image with copic markers. I paper pieced the gifts to make them look more like they had been gift wrapped. I added a little bit of 3 dimensional snow to the bottom with my snow writer. I kept the emebellishments simple just adding a couple of flat snowflakes. This card could actually be mailed with no extra postage required!!! The sentiment is from Stamping Scrapping's Celebrate set. Now, this is the year I am actually going to mail Christmas cards!!!! I still have all the ones I made last year and they need to go out!!!
