CCMC232 – Happy New Year

We have a beautiful color challenge for you this week on Create with Connie and Mary!  I've actually used this color combination a lot during the holidays and it is especially perfect for New Year's!



I love the single stamp, Happy New Year, that Stampin' Up! came out with before the holidays!  I don't do a lot of New Year's card, but I have had occasions once in a while.  I'll be keeping this stamp in my supply, just because I think it is very unique!



Here are the details:


  1. The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 of Whisper White cardstock, folded in half to make the card.
  2. I layered on 4 x 5 1/4 Pool Party that I embossed with the Lacy Brocade folder.
  3. I added a 2 1/2 x 4 strip of Silver Glimmer Paper down the center.
  4. I stamped the Happy New Year image with Versamark on Whisper White and embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.  Then I colored in the numbers with Pool Party marker.
  5. I cut out the image with the Apothecary Accents and used the Essentials Piercing Template around the edges.
  6. Finally, I added a bow of Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon adhered with Mini Glue Dots.


I love how elegant it looks!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with this special color challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary

Hi, I'm a little confused? T he letters look darker than silver embossing, did I miss something? I love the card and want  to make it. I'm also interested in joining a challenge, how do I go about doing that, do I need to be in your downline? I'm a fairly new demonstrator(almost a year) and would like to branch out. Thanks, Sheila

Really beautiful card Connie. I didn't purchase this stamp as I really didn't think I'd use it. Love the paper piercing and the embossing. Looks wonderful with all the glimmer. Happy New Year!
