You heard me correctly - every stop on the hop has PRIZES! It's our way of saying thanks! I have a great prize package of Simon Says Stamp goodies to give away to one lucky winner (see photo below)! In order to be eligible to win, please leave a comment on this post and tell me your New Year's resolution for crafting and creativity! I will draw the winner on Tuesday January 5th and notify you via email. What projects are you going to work on in 2016? Maybe a new technique? New style?
I thought since we are all getting together today, and it's New Year's Day....I would post a fun, funky, bright New Year card! I had so much fun making these shaker cards. Loads of cool confetti and stars inside. I used my Fuse Tool and some fav dies. The Joy die is from Simon Says Stamp and the numbers dies are from Papertrey Ink. The stamp is Impression Obsession. I used bright bold colors! This was my first project using my fuse tool, also. I think I might be hooked.
My finished cards inside the pockets are five and a quarter inch square. The plastic covering is the Avery Elle stamp storage pockets. They are really nice and thick plastic. I cut the numbers out of silver glitter paper. More bling is better, right?
I put the card inside the plastic sleeves and fused the bottom edge. Then I dumped in a whole lot of confetti! And sequins! The tiny confetti is from Martha Stewart and the sequins are just a mix of what I have in my stash. After I put the confetti inside, I fused the top edge and trimmed it. There you have it! Fun without the mess!
Be sure to hook up with me on social media - all the links are in my left sidebar! And, I would love to have you as an email subscriber too - just put your email in the box under my photo. Oh, and I have to warn you, I am pretty addicted to Instagram! I would be happy to share with you there! Thank you for coming by today. Enjoy the hop!
