New Year Party

Hi everyone!

It’s been a very long time since I played along with a My Favorite Things sketch challenge. Not sure why as I do love a sketch challenge!

Anyway, I saw this week’s challenge pop up on Instagram and realised that as I had the Gift Box Cover Up die, I could easily play along! Sticking with my current New Year’s obsession THEME I created a background using distress oxide inks and the MFT firework stamps. I have had these stamps for a while and this is the first time I’ve used them. Best layering firework stamps ever! The polymer is trimmed to a point in one place on each stamp to make it really easy to line up the stamps. I’ve bought a few firework stamp sets over the years, and most of them have been a bit disappointing (probably user error!) but this set has to be my favourite now!

Anyway, after stamping the background, I die cut the Die-versions Party Crowd from black glitter paper, cut out the figures I wanted to use and stuck them to my base card to create an outside/balcony scene before adhering the frame using funky foam.

Finally, I added a sentiment from my favourite/most used Simon Says Stamp Holiday Words on a Line die set to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
