Celebration to Ring in the New Year with the Blogging Friends Blog Hop

Ring in the New Year

Sometimes you just have to get creative with your stamp sets! With the “Ring in the New Year” theme, I definitely had to get creative to figure out a card to celebrate the New Year. Well, cue the Picture Perfect Birthday paired with the Bokeh Dots! What could be more perfect…

Confetti & Bokeh?

While trying to think outside the box, I saw the “cue the confetti” sentiment and instantly thought of New Year’s Eve in New York City with confetti and the Crystal Ball falling at Times Square. You have Sparkle and Confetti which just shouts out New Year celebrations to me. What do you think? Did I succeed?

Cue the Confetti Celebration Card

Ring in the New Year with the Blogging Friends Blog Hop. Visit all the blogs for inspiration.  I've created a New Year Card by using the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set paired with the Bokeh Dots and Frost White Shimmer Paint.

I started with the Bokeh Dots Stamp Set and inked it up with the Smoky Slate Ink but then sponged Frost White Shimmer Pant over the ink. When I stamped the image, it just POPPED! I mean… WOW, it really is cool looking and so much better in person. 

The card has a fun, metallic feel. It’s festive, shiny and just feels like New Year’s Eve. Yes, I could use the card as a Birthday Card but it’s definitely a fun New Year Celebration card. I’ve also used the Making Christmas Bright Stamp Set to add to the festive feel of the card. Silver Metallic Thread and Metallic Pearls help round out the festive feel with some bling.
