Cheers to 2020!

Happy New Year! Can you believe it’s a start of a new decade!? Time has flown by so quickly! One of my new years resolutions is to create more for myself. I have design teams and deadlines but I realized that I need to create for myself and that’s exactly what I’m going to do. Do you have any crafty resolutions for the new year?

Today, I wanted to create a card using I’m sharing a card featuring these critters I colored up for fun. I always revert back to Mama Elephant’s Party Animal stamp set at the beginning of the year since it’s so perfect to kick off the new year.

I stamped out these images using Ink on 3’s Fadeout Ink, which is perfect for no line coloring. I used a combination of Copic markers (colors listed below) to color everything.

I definitely knew I wanted to use Trinity Stamps’ Layered Fireworks stencils for the background but was worried it’d be too busy. I went for it anyway and stepped a bit out of my comfort zone. I gathered a ton of different embossing powders to help create this firework lit sky. Using Juicy Ink, I pressed on the stencil to get the ink on my cardstock and then used all the different embossing powders to fill up the sky.

I used My Favorite Things Stamps – Snow Drifts to cut out some masking paper so I could use distress inks for the sky and the grass. The embossing powder resists all the ink so once I was finished with the sky, I just wiped it down with a dry paper towel and all the colors were perfect for fireworks.

I went ahead and added all the colored critters to the card panel and added the Cheers sentiment from My Favorite Things Stamps. This finished off my card and I love how it turned out. It looks a bit busy but you know what, the more fireworks, the better.

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!
