Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Stamping Friends,

May your year be blessed with health, prosperity and Stamping time!

The Holiday catalog is only good through January 4th so hurry if you have a few other products you wanted.

Use the hostess code KDREJS4A with your online order placed no later than the 4th and the orders will be combined so that I can order the Six Sayings hostess set that you will see on today’s cards.  It is a must have set.  I will draw from everyone ordering to select who gets the hostess set. One entry for each $25 order!   The inside of my New Year’s card uses the Six Sayings hostess set and Perfect Plum ink.  Once again (previously used at Thanksgiving)  I have combined two of the stamps from the stamp set to make the greeting I wanted.

Happy New Year

The snowflakes from ‘Flurry of Wishes’ were used for accents and stamped with Wisteria Wonder.

For the front of the card you will think I am very cheesy or very brilliant but we are not going to take a vote!


Yes, it is a box card but it was soooo perfect for the greeting I wanted to use to reflect going from 2015 to 2016 and it had a snowy scene to tie in with the blessings falling like snowflakes!

Now for a Thank You card, once again using the Six Sayings hostess stamp set and positioning the designer series paper to the left instead of centered for a unique look.


On the inside I wanted the word “Very”.  Our current ‘Reason For The Season’ set has the word ‘very’ but I didn’t have that set so I used the retired Very Merry Tags set.  I stamped it on Very Vanilla,  colored in the bottom half which had the word ‘merry’ with an Always Artichoke marker, punched it out with the 7/8 ” scalloped circle punch and then embellished the tag with gold metallic thread and a gold sequin and popped up the tag with dimensionals on top of the smaller of the gold foil doilies.  It is stunning in real life!!

Thankful Very
