I knew that I'd make a New Year card with these colours - I imagined a New Year's Eve firework display - here's my card:
Stamps: CAS-ual Friday Stamps - Countdown; Dawn Bibby - Flower Patch; Waltzingmouse - Holiday Labels 14
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Raspberry Ripple, Wisteria Wonder; Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Dies: Spellbinders - Labels 14 (S4-290) #3 & 4
Accessories: SU Card - Raspberry Ripple, Wisteria Wonder; SU - Diamond Dazzles Glitter; White Lustre card - Stampeddlar
I made the card base from SU Raspberry Ripple card with a mat of Wisteria Wonder. Michelle Gross from CAS-ual Friday Stamps made the perfect set of stamps for a New Year's card. The countdown from ten to one is just perfect! I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure that I positioned both the countdown and New Year sentiment centrally. Next I stamped the "fireworks" - actually they're flowers - but I think they work. I added a touch of sparkle to the fireworks, but you can't really see it in the photos. I made the Celebrate label by stamped the bottom layer in Raspberry Ripple and embossing with clear powder (the new SU inks are juicy enough to emboss if you're quick!). I thought the starburst stamp was the perfect background for the Celebrate sentiment!

Now I should say that this is a scheduled post! We've been in the UK for Christmas and today we fly back to the States - so hopefully, it goes up as planned! See you soon.
