Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year dear crafty friends!

I wanted to be sure and wish all of my followers a blessed and prosperous new year!  I am very grateful that you choose to follow my blog and keep up with my creations.  I hope I have inspired you to create throughout 2017 and that I will continue to do that for you in 2018!

In just two days the new Occasions catalog will be live!  Of course, I always look forward to the new items available. But sometimes I also struggle to let go of my retiring favorites.  Today I am sharing a card that uses retiring paper and a stamp set I love.  You can still get the stamp set and paper used in this card, but only today and tomorrow!

This paper is so very pretty!  I chose to color in the white background of the paper using a brayer and Fresh Fig ink.  It is much more striking in person that what shows in the picture.  The paper used is the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer paper.  I rarely use up an entire paper pack, but with this paper I did! The stamp set used is the Cheers to the Year stamp set.  It has many stamps that can be used as fun backgrounds and the perfect sentiment for new year wishes! The layered papers used in this card are Champagne Foil, Whisper White and Fresh Fig.  I used copper embossing powder to make the circle and the sentiment really pop.  I added some mini sequins for just a little more flair.

I hope this gives you inspiration to start creating a year of joy and happiness for 2018!

Check back soon for all the info on the NEW catalog coming in just 2 days!!
