happy new year!!

stamps: teeny tiny sentiments from stampin up!, happy birthday from technique Tuesday
inks: memento (tuxedo black) ink pad, promarkers
cardstock: craftwork cards digi cardstock, black 4x6" card black, miri card (I used holographic)
dies: typeset alphabet bigz (stampin up! & sizzix) & the big shot from sizzix
this card takes a bit longer to make than it might seem as the background is created using a mini confetti stamp. I stamped it all over the background, leaving a slight halo around the sentiment, then coloured each piece of confetti using several promarkers. I die-cut the numbers in miri card, then in black so I could layer them up to give a shadow effect. I think this, plus their large size, gives them maxium impact on the card. 



  1. Great celebratory card, Stacey! Your stamped background is fantastic. Thanks so much for playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Something New!

  2. thanks for the comments... glad you liked the background, a nice comment makes a card worth all the effort that went into it!! Mx
