TE Release Day: Happy New Year


TE Release Day!

  • PETITE-A-PALOOZA SPECIAL: Purchase any 6 Petite Stamp Sets (new or old) through Friday December 9th and receive a Petite Storage Case absolutely FREE!

Of course it wouldn’t be release day without more eye candy!  Today I am sharing another two cards using the new sets.


My first card uses the Happy New Year a la carte and a bit of Picadilly designer paper from Basic Grey.  I stamped the image on the Kraft background and again on Choice Snow White.  I cut the second image out, colored with Copic markers and adhered over the first (only the bubbles from the one stamped on Kraft show through).  I added Glossy Accents to the clock and the glass and then finished by applying a Rose Paper Pen to the bubbles.  Yummm… tasty pink bubbles! ;)  I also added a border of pink dots using the same pen.


I was in the mood for a big bow so pulled out a bit of pink grosgrain and tied a bow using the Bow Easy, I then added a second length around the card base and tied the bow in place using a button and twine.  I tried just using one length of ribbon and tying the bow using the “bunny ears” technique but that didn’t turn out.  Doing it this way looked much cleaner.


For my second card I used the Polar Pete petite stamp set and the new Happier Card Kit.  After stamping and coloring Polar Pete I die cut the scene using a Circle Nestabilities die.  I then sponged a cloudy background using the Clouds Border Die and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  To finish I added dots of Light Blue Pearl Pen around the edges of the circle and coated his nose, feet and ears with a Rose Paper Pen.
