It’s time to crank out a couple of cards for New Year’s – and what better way to celebrate than with a stamp set from the Holiday Catalog (that’s on sale right now) and a sneak peek Specialty Designer Series Paper (that will be available in the upcoming Occasions Catalog)? Woo Hoo! Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- An Isolated New Year. The sentiment on this card is an isolated image from one of the sentiments in Mingle All the Way, a stamp set from the Occasions Catalog that’s currently on sale. If you missed my video about isolating images on a stamp to ink up only a part of the stamp, you can see it here. If you don’t already have this versatile stamp, maybe you could buy it now while it’s on sale in the Clearance Rack (available while supplies last – the clear mount set is marked down from $17.95 to $12.95.
- What Makes it Specialty? This Specialty Designer Series Paper is from a birthday-themed specialty paper in the upcoming Occasions Catalog. I love it – in fact I like it so much that I used it on my own birthday card. Two of the sheets of this paper include gold foil images – this one includes golf flecks in the confetti. In another, gold foil balloons are featured. Here’s a shot of the paper I display in my birthday post:
- A Slanted View. I was ready to glue down this Night of Navy and Calypso Coral card, with its coordinated borders and straight lines when I got a wild hair to slant the band that grounds the circular sentiment. I decided to go with it before I changed my mind and couldn’t be happier with the decision. I kept the sentiment aligned horizontally on the card, rather than slanting it with the band. A different look that I like – although tomorrow I’ll likely be back to horizontal and perpendicular lines. 🙂
