Bright and Beautiful Happy New Year & The Stampers Dozen Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone!
Wow it’s been so busy around here….just getting ready for the holidays and all the good stuff that goes along with it.
Our Blog theme this month for the “Stampers Dozen Blog Hop” is New Year! My is a Black Tie kind of a card…as I thought about what I could do I thought of how our personal New Years have changed over the years. Some of my favorite ones were the dress up kind of affairs, hence this card. Black, Gold and Bubbly!
I hope you like my little creation done with the Bright and Beautiful Christmas Set.
I used the Gold Encore Ink for the Dotty Angles Stamp at the top of the card (bubbles) on the black mat. I used it again for the word New Year and for the Champagne Glasses too. I had to do a bit of fussy cutting on those.
The sentiment was inked with my Black Marker and I only colored in the top two rows of wording and stamped onto a piece of Whisper White. I then stamped the Happy New Year in gold Encore Ink and cut out. Then I made sure to clean my stamp well and marker the last line. Lined it up an Voila!
I had to pull in the Big Shot to cut out my Labels in Gold Foil Paper and my wording. I like how that looked. So I then cut the Glasses out and adhered with Dimensionals.
Didn’t want the inside to feel left out so I cut a few strips of gold and black and added to the bottom of the white mat and then stamped the “Cheers” Sentiment in Black to finish it off.
I hope you enjoyed visiting today and will come back often. I love hearing from you so please do leave a comment.

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I missed last week with Stamping and Blogging. Just too much on my plate. This week is not much different except I made a little time to stamp and do this little card for you. I went to my stamp shelves in search of the right stamp for this sketch and this one caught my eye. I had never inked it before and was pleased at how fun and fast this was to put together. You know me love Black and White with a pop of color. Smile

The New Born King and the Jax STARZ Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the Jacksonville STARZ Blog Hop. I hope you will join in on the fun and visit my Team Members Blogs listed below. I’ve got some awesome talent going on! They amaze me!

Here is the sketch we were to follow hope you see the resemblance.



Supplies needed:

This is such a pretty set and is so peaceful. If you haven’t decided on your Christmas set this year you might consider “The Newborn King” It’s just beautiful!


  • Cut the Shimmer White to 4 1/4 x 11 and 3 3/4 x 5
  • Cut the Champagne Glitter Paper in 1/2” strips and worked it around the mat.
  • I did emboss about 2/3 of the mat with the woodgrain Embossing Folder and stamped the little Joy with Lost Lagoon.
  • I then stamped the image in Stazon and water colored the Manger Scene and used my circle Framelit to cut it out. I then mounted onto a larger circle of Champagne Glitter Paper. Sort of off set it.
  • I then took some of the gold twine and used my Magic Bow Maker to make my fluffy Bow. I did tie a few more strands around the center to hang down and then attached with a glue dot. That’s it. 

That’s it for today…..I hope you liked it. Please make sure to visit my team Members now and leave some sweet comments.
