Swirly Frames & Stitched Stars

First of all I would like to wish everyone a Healthy and Happy New Year.  It is hard to believe it is 2020!  It is going to be a year of change and excitement in my house and I am looking forward to all of it.  More on that later…..

I thought I would make a fun card to celebrate the new year.  The colors I used are Mango Melody and Bermuda Bay.  I first randomly stamped the circles from the stamp set called Swirly Frames.  I won this set at a Stampin’ Up!® OnStage event a while ago and haven’t used it much but it really is a fun set.  Then I cut out the stars using the Stitched Star dies in the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  Remember, this catalog is only going to be available until tomorrow.  Some of the best products will be going away so if you like something make sure you purchase it today or tomorrow.  Luckily the Stitched Stars are carrying over.  I cut the stars out using Mango Melody, Bermuda Bay and Gold Foil Sheets.  The little stars are from the swirly looking die in this set.  I love that it cuts out all different sizes.

The sentiment is from Vibrant Vases.  I have to admit.  I did a thing that you would never expect me to do.  Vibrant Vases is a Photopolymer stamp set.  The stamp I used also has the words “every tiny victory” underneath the word Celebrate.  I cut it off.  Before you faint, I realized that you can cut Photopolymer stamps and it doesn’t really hurt them because you can piece them back together on a block and they work as good as new.  You can also mask out the other words but cutting works so much better.  I thought it was a genius idea since I love the font on the Celebrate stamp but wanted to be able to use it as a birthday, anniversary, graduation or whatever you want to celebrate.

Lastly I add some Metallic Pearls in gold.

Happy New Year.  May all your wishes come true this year!
