HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR! Happy 2014 Everyone! The new year is full of promise and possibilities and beginnings! I hope your year is off to a good start. We spent the day at home yesterday relaxing and watching the parade and football games and I got some much needed creative time. Hmmmm....I had no idea what I wanted to make,though. Something for the new year, but what? I went through my drawer of Papertrey Ink goodness and saw the Hands of Time stamp set and then I saw the sentiment that I used. I thought - that is a really nice saying for the new year - and voila! A card was born!
It was really hard to pick a color scheme...but then I found the fern stamps and decided on a natural color palette of green, brown and mustard. And, my current obsession, wood grain paper! Isn't that a pretty saying for this week?
It took me a while to decide what color to make the clock... I had a brown clock, a white clock and finally decided on the mossy green.
I cut the clock hands out of distress kraft core paper and then sanded them to look a bit worn. All my paper edges are inked with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
Here's a photo that shows my layers...
Stamps and dies for this project are all from Papertrey Ink: Hands of Time stamp set and clock dies, Number dies, Meadow Greens stamp set and matching dies, and Love Lives Here stamp set and matching dies. The inks are all Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Antique Linen, Mustard, Peeled Paint and Corduroy. See you soon! I'll have some news to share soon about an online card class I'm doing with May Flaum (and a giveaway)! Also, I leave next Thursday for CHA!!! And, next week is Taylored Expressions Release Week. 2014 is off to a busy start! XO
