Happy New Year 2015
What does a New Year mean to you? Besides aging and additional grey hair mixed with a new wrinkle and renewed wisdom 2015 to me means new friends, new adventures upon reflection of the year that was (2014) Take all of the above and with Stampin’ Up! you can have all of that incorporated in your crafting experience,
Aging can be a distressed piece of artwork, greying hair can be shown on your page in the form of the Smokey slate cardstock and the wrinkled effect can be achieved by a crafting technique called Faux Silk, mmm… how to show the wisdom stampin’ up! have done that for us in the craft world by presenting a fabulous array of products in both the Occasional catalogue and the Sale-a-bration catalogue…

The Happy New Year set in this post is created from a wine bottle template on Rich Razzleberry cardstock, the top is embossed with Pewter embossing powder. I used the Stars Decorative Mask to create the stars on the bottle using the Gold Stampin Dazzle markers, quick and easy.
The label is made stamping the numbers from Memorable Moments stamp set in versamark (using the stamp-a-ma-jig) and embossed in Gold Embossing Powder. The Happy New Year is from Teeny tiny Sentiments and also gold embossed. This was then punched out using the Decorative Label Punch… In between the Wine bottle pieces I created a box which I filled with Lollies, but you can add jewellery Gift cards, anything really….this can also be used for any occasion, 21st Anniversary, Graduation we have a gold mine in our imagination closet.
The card is made from a base of Whisper white and the finished size is 4″ x 4″. The first layer was from a piece of the striped Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, with a piece of Rich Razzelberry adhered off centre. I stamped the 3 wine glasses (from Embellished Events ) in versamark onto a piece of Plain Vellum and embossed it with a mixture of Dazzling Diamonds and White embossing Powder. I coloured the middle glass using Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities and adhered that to the Rich Razzleberry card.. so that you couldn’t see the adhesive through the vellum I punch out stars using the Confetti Stars punch and selected four of the same size and adhered those to each corner of the Vellum.
