Happy 2017!! I hope that your year is off to a great start and that it will be a much more peaceful and better year for us all! I had a nice relaxing day yesterday. I cleaned a little more, I have a lot of purging to do! I crafted for a bit and then went over to play with Daniel and Tristan. Daniel’s fun for the evening was running up and down the stairs watching the time change on the clocks! I definitely got a workout with him! I watched the ball drop and then went to bed. Exciting aren’t I?! Today I’m back at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store to start the year off with Renee and Angie and a little New Year’s Day crop! 😀
I’m always in need of Thank You cards and I like to try and stretch my Holiday Stamps and much as I can so I did that with today’s card! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Photoplay This Guy 12×12 Paper. My coffee cup is from the Hero Arts Coffee Cup Stamp & Die Combo. I stamped the cup in Red Royal onto Solar White 80lb and the sleeve in Onyx Black on Kraft. They are both cut out with the Coordinating Dies along with the lid which is cut from a piece of Gold Mirror Card. My greeting is from the Hero Arts Thanks Stamp & Cut and is cut from a piece of Gold Glitter Paper and two pieces of Black 110lb. I used Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to adhere them to each other and Multi-Matte Medium to adhere it to the circle. I used the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies to cut out a piece of Carta Bella Dots & Stripes Gold Foil Vellum. The circle is then adhered to the card with E-Z Runner hidden behind the coffee cup! All that was left to do was to add some Gold Pretty Pink Posh Sequins and a few Studio Calico Wood Veneer Stars! The coffee cup stamp is definitely one of my all time favorites! I hope that you enjoyed the first card for 2017! Here’s to a crafty and fun year for us all! 🙂
