Bearing Gifts for 2018!

Happy New Year!

To begin I must apologise for my absence from Blogland during December.  I had to take time out as I've had a loved one in hospital and visits were taking all my time.  I hope to catch up on blogs soon.

I'm up on the CrafTangles blog and throught I'd use a stamp set that works so well for winter cards even though it was intended for Christmas.  It has both sentiments and images ideal for this time of year.

Of course, my first card had to be one for the New Year!

I created the background using a CrafTangles stencil with distress inks.  I added Lawn Fawn stamps and dies cuts for the borders and sentiment.  To embellish I used glitter stars from the December Bubbly Funk Box.

I made the second card with a friend in mind whose birthday happens to be today!  Using the same stamp set I added die cuts and an embossing folder for the background.

To embellish I used glitter gems and washi tape.  You can find more details on these creations HERE.

Well, all that remains is for my to wish you all a very happy, healthy and successful New Year.  Thank you for all your support during 2017.

See you again soon,

Products Used:
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Lawn Fawn
Glitter Stars from the December Bubbly Funk Box
All adhesives from Stix 2 Anything
Everything else from my stash
