Happy New Year ~ OCL

Smiley from
Did you have a good Christmas? I had my kids and grandbabies and my mom here. We had good food and fun times, now it's back to everyday things, ahhhhh!
Oh wait, it's crunch time for CHA (Craft and Hobby Association), making samples for the new stuff coming out, getting them to Crafty Secrets and Our Craft Lounge for the the booths, packing, wondering what to wear, the weather in CA. OMG! I'm going to CHA!! Am I excited? Ummm, yeah! Am I a total stress mess? Ummmm, yeah! As far as I know, I'll be doing make and takes at the Splitcoast Stampers booth for eclecticPaperie on Friday the 22nd and I'll be at the OCL booth off and on. Come by and see me if you're going, I'm so ready to meet more stampin' friends IRL!
I've got a tag and a card to share today. I made them using the Cheers stamp set by Our Craft Lounge. The tag was sponged with Distress ink and a blender tool. I stamped the row of glasses on the bottom and the bubbles, olive, cork and little stars on the tag. I stamped, colored and cut out 3 bunches of ballons and put them on the tag with foam dots to give them dimension. I added Crafty Sparkles to the star and glued on the flower I made with my Peony dies by Spellbinders. I cut the pocket watch with another die, Timeless Heritage and added a clock face and a game spinner. I stamped and paper pieced the bottle and put Glossy Accents on it to make it look like glass.
Supplies: Stamps - Cheers by OCL. Paper - tag, GP white, MME Penny Lane. Ink - Ranger Distress Black Soot, Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint, Dusty Concord, Copic markers, Gelly Roll Stardust pen. Acces. - Crafty Sparkles Ice Crystals, large chipboard star by SU!, Martha Stewart ribbon, small black pom-pom trim, button, clock face, game spinner, large clear crystal, Tim Holtz ticket, Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist, Glossy Accents. Tools - Big Shot, Spellbinders Peony and Timeless Heritage dies, blender tool.
This is a little Happy New Year card I made. I cut the card with my Spellinders Long Scalloped Rectangle die. I used a 12x12 piece of Prism cardstock, I cut the cardstock a little bigger than the width of the die and scored it in half. I layed the die a smidgen over the fold and ran it through my Big Shot. The card is 2 7/8 x 5 5/8", it fits in a regular letter size envy. To get the little sparkly stars on the main image, I put glue on the star with my glue pen and stamped it and then I sprinkled Ice Crystal Crafty Sparkles on. The sparkly stars are so cute! I paper pieced the ballons.
