I hope you all had a fabulous holiday with lots of fun, family, friends and food! It is great to be back. I always spend some time at the end of the year, reflecting on the blog and seeing how I can change it and grow into the new year. Good things are coming my friends, so stay tuned!
To start the new year off, I am SO excited to announce I have been invited to join the Design Team over at Great Impressions! If you remember, I was the guest designer back in October; and I had a such a fun time creating cards for all those challenges. I was thrilled when I was asked to become a member of the team. Great Impressions has such a great variety of stamps in their store. I just love them all!
To start off the challenges for January, we have a color challenge:
I used a variety of different papers to match the blues in the picture. These colors remind me of winter. I have a family member with a birthday in January, so I thought this would be a perfect birthday card for her! (I have plans to include something else in the card; but don't want to spoil it here, in case she sees this...)
I loved the "Fun Coffee Cup" (Item #H278) which I stamped in black ink and then colored in with a variety of grey and blue Copic markers. I added the "Triple Birthday Wish" sentiment (Item #D513) in Soft Navy ink. For the "whipped top" I just swirled around some white acrylic paint on top and then sprinkled some glitter over it. Once that was all dry, I add some light blue stickles for just a bit of extra fun!
I hope you all have a fabulous day! Be sure to stop by and link up your cards to the challenge! We can't wait to see what you create!
