Hello everyone! On this chilly weekend, I hope you all have lots of holiday festivities and activities planned and enjoy the feeling in the air! It's true, I love this time of year, and use it as an opportunity to use up all my beautiful Christmas and Winter Paper.
Today I have an exciting giveaway for you all!! Sarah @ Pink By Design saw our new Happy New Year faces and thought the would pair excellent with her "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" stamp set! Well guess what? They do! Not only do they pair well, but they also got me to break out the Cricut for the first time in awhile!
But I don't get to JUST share a project with you today... I also get to giveaway one set of our Happy New Year Assortments and a "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" set compliments of Sarah! How sweet is that??? Be sure to stop over at her blog to see what she's created for a second chance to win - she's also giving away both sets!
For my card, I decided to wipe the dust of my Cricut and actually put it to good use! I think I've done just that! I absolutely love the search feature on the Gypsy - it lets me browse all cartridges to find the shape I am looking for! That's how I found these wine glasses in "French Manor"! I welded three circles together from Create-a-Critter and then welded my snow-ladies together so they appeared to be hanging on to each other and having a good ol' time! :) The sentiment from "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" reads "Life is too short to drink cheap wine." It's true. Plus it gives you a headache. Double icky. Hehe
As a tip (and a lot of you probably already know this) - Memento Ink smeared on the glitter cardstock I used when I began to ink edges with Distress Ink. Ancient Page "cool black" is what I ended up using for my faces, but I typically like to see them a bit darker. If I could have located my black Staz On in my scrap heap, I mean Craft Room, I would have tried that first.
Cartridges Used: Create-a-Critter (to create snow-ladies), French Manor (wine glasses) and Celebrations (party hats)
Stamps Used: Peachy Keen Stamps Happy New Year Face Assortment, (also used Happy Lashes Face Assortment on two of my snow-ladies) Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (Pink By Design)
Other Elements: Fibers (American Crafts), Distress Stickles (Fired Brick) Ice Stickles (Crystal Ice) Pattern Paper (Basic Grey - Eskimo Kisses) Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass - around edges of snow-ladies)
So how do you win? Just leave a comment on this post letting me know how long you've known your best girlfriend and I will draw two random winners Monday morning!! Good luck everyone, thanks for coming over to see my card! Don't forget to head over to Sarah's for a chance to win again and to see the adorable cards she's created!
