Have Fun

Hi Bloggers.

I thought the sentiment on today's card was appropriate for New Year's Eve.

The backing paper is once again from the Teresa Collins 8 x 8 Paper Pad, covered with a Self Adhesive Sheet and then Micro Beads.

The cupcakes are from the Couture Creations Party Time 3 in 1 Set, stamped using Coffee Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the corresponding die in the set. I stamped the little bow from the set using Magenta Hue Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using the die in the set. I cut a Spellbinders 5 x 7 Elegant Labels 28 out of Raspberry Card. I cut the largest of the dies out of Roast Coffee Card and at the emboss stage added the embossing folder from the Party Time set.

I stamped the sentiment from the set using Coffee Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Four.

I made the flowers using a stamp from the Couture Creations Pattern Quilt 3 in 1 Set, stamped 3 times for each using Coffee Archival. The leaves are cut using the Heartfelt Creations Sweet Juliet Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Dark Bronze around the edges.

I'll be back tomorrow with a Sneak Peak from Thursday's Shows.

Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Morning Julia, A lovely card, loving the Teresa Collins paper, especially with the micro beads atop, and the stamping and flowers are gorgeous.
    The focal stamping reminded me of the 'vanilla' cake I ate yesterday, an indulgence that I don't often succumb to, but gorgeously sumptuous when I do haha.
    Have a lovely evening, and I hope you have a Happy and Healthy New Year, and thank you for all your inspiration in 2013, already looking forward to 2014's sneaky peek.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  8. All very well you saying to have fun, with a pic of delicious cakes, but I just got on the scales this morning, and I've put on a whole stone over the past few weeks! Drat!!! I can feel a new year resolution coming on.

  9. Hi Julia.

    Love the bright pink, it goes so well with the brown.

  25. Hi Julia and Wattsonettes. Where did my post go I left earlier ? I KNOW it WAS here as one of my lovely Wattsonettes made the same comment as me, finding NYE depressing for our own sad, personal reasons, twice this has happened now ! And yesterday's has disapeared, what on earth ?
    Very 'weird' oh well.

    Sending you all a healthy 2014.
    Love and hugs
    Lancashire Steph xx

  26. Hi Julia,

    Lovely sentiment but sorry, this card is not for me, I am not a big fan of Pink anyway and this is far too much Pink for me, sorry.

    Have a Happy New Year and I look forward to future shows.

    Love & Hugs
