Hey there! Some of my kids have gone home, some are still here, and tomorrow my nephew and his sweet wife are coming to visit! yay!
Today's project is another we will be making next week at the Stampin' in the New Year Stamp-a-Stack using a new Occasions Catalog set, Another Great Year:
I'm really diggin' the Pool Party, Whisper White, and Real Red color combo! Bet you couldn't tell from the projects I've been showing lately, could you?
For this card I stamped the giant "happy birthday" first in Real Red on the Whisper White layer, cleaned the stamp, then stamped on Real Red cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder and the Heat Tool. I then cut out the "happy" and "to you" banner pieces so I could layer them over the Real Red stamped image to give it a bit of a "split negative" look.
I embossed the Pool Party layer with the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Folder, which will be free with a $50 order beginning January 28th.
Silver Glimmer stars punched with the star punch from the Merry Minis Punch Pack finishes off this card with just the right amount of bling!
I stamped the inside phrase, also from Another Great Year, with Real Red. I added a 1/2" strip of Fresh Prints Designer Paper stack to the bottom of the Whisper White layer to help tie the outside to the inside.
That's all for now! You can order the "Another Great Year" stamp set and the Fresh Prints Designer Paper Stack beginning January 3rd, but unti then you can check out the 25 new items added to the Clearance Rack today:
Until tomorrow, have a "Stampingrox!" day!
