Happy New Year!

So, I'm a day early, but SUO Only Challenges is kicking off a new challenge: January Colors! For January, I'm still thinking cold, snow, shiny things, and the new year. Here is my interpretation of January colors; what's yours? Come play along!

New Year Card stampin up

I cut the numbers out of Silver Glimmer paper with my Big Shot and the Typeset Alphabet dies. Then I used my black Sharpie to color them in. I made sequins by first punching a 1/16" hole and then using a 1/4" hole punch, centering the 1/16" hole. Some of the sequins, I left silver, and some I colored black. I also made some using a Dazzling Diamond embossed piece of Pool Party card stock. I adhered all the sequins with my 2-way glue pen, so the glue wouldn't seep through the hole.

Stampin' Supplies:

  • Paper:

    • Pool Party card stock - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", plus scrap for the sequins

    • Whisper White card stock - 3 3/4" x 4 1/4"

    • Silver Glimmer paper

  • Ink: Black Sharpie marker, Versamark ink pad
