Happy New Year!!

Happy 2015!!  I hope you rang in the new year with someone special last night!  Today I have a card made just for this occasion that just happens to work with this week's challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments...

New year's card featuring the new Hello You Thinlits and the Happy Hour stamp set.
I went with a monochromatic look, sticking with silver and gray for my colour scheme.  I stamped "New Year" from the sentiment in the Bright and Beautiful stamp set by inking just that phrase with my Basic Gray marker.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-Jig to position it just right.  The background panel is Silver Foil Vellum layered on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I used Silver Foil card stock to mat the focal panel, which I trimmed with some All is Calm Washi Tape.  The word "happy" is die cut using the new Hello You Thinlits, available in just 5 short days in the Occasions catalogue.

The champagne glasses are from the Happy Hour stamp set.  I stamped them in Basic Black ink and then fussy cut them out.  I added some silver glimmer champagne in each glass.  Of course, I needed more bling, so I added a few rhinestone bubbles floating up from the glasses.

On the inside I used more Washi tape and stamped the sentiment from the Happy Hour stamp set in Smokey Slate ink.
I hope 2015 finds you filled with hope and anticipation for what is in store.  I wish you all the best the new year has to offer!
