Happy New Year!

Hope everyone had a safe, fun New Year’s celebration … and here’s a toast to a happy, healthy 2014!

Christmas went by so quickly — with so much to do (and don’t even get me started on Hannukah, which was so weirdly timed this year) — that I only had time to send out .02 cards. So I caught up on New Year’s, but I put them in the mail so fast, I didn’t take any photos! Also, I didn’t make many, so I turned some of my plain generic cards from my stash into New Year’s cards. Here are two:

The cool paint dripping background stamp is from Hero Arts, inked with Ranger Distress Inks, spritzed with a bit of water. The Penny Black cityscape was heat embossed with American Crafts’ Zing teal. Yum. All I did was stamp a bunch of Happy New Year sentiments, cut them out and pop them on with dimensional foam. Thank goodness for my stash of un-marked cards!

Last month I cut up a bunch of paper odds-and-ends and created these diagonal mosaics. I love this technique. So fast and easy, and it feels SO good using up scraps!

Happy New Year, everyone. And thanks for stopping by!
