HAPPY 2016 to one and all! May this year bring you many blessings… and time with family and friends!
I am resolving (as in New Year’s Resolution) to be more consistent in my blogging this year. It is my promise to you, and to myself. I hadn’t realized that it had been more than a month since my last post! As the new year begins I am positioning myself to stay on top of my sharing with you through my blog, Facegroup page (Stamping With Mia_guam), tutorials and classes.
My first projects of 2016 are my NEW blog banner and this quick & easy notecard! The notecard also serves as a sneak peek of several products from Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions Catalog which begins on January 5, 2016!
The stamped images – heart and saying – are from First Sight; the patterned paper is from Love Blossoms 6×6 Designer Series Paper Stack; and the golden highlights are from the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush… all available beginning January 5, 2016! I knew First Sight was a “have to have” stamp set as soon as I saw it! It isn’t specific to Valentine’s Day, but has a love theme which can be used for any occasion: Mother’s Day, Anniversary, Birthday, Valentine’s Day, Friendship and Love. If you are a regular reader of my blog then you know I LOVE hearts so it was a given the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack was another must have. And, the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush! It is absolutely awesome! Here is a close-up of the punched heart so you can see the wonderful effects for yourself! Note: I used the Gold Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on today’s card, but it will also be available in clear.
