Hello crafty friends, it’s Lesley here, and I can’t believe it’s nearly 2023! This year has been a crazy one for our family because we’ve had a few health challenges, and also a significant amount of renovation work happening in our house!
The great news is that we’re at the final furlong, and my new craft room is nearly complete – just a few extra touches are needed. Over the month of December, we moved up my crafty goodies, and it’s taken a while, but everything has a home now. I finally got my video set up configured, and I thought ‘what better way to christen my new craft space than to share my first crafting experience here with you guys’. So here we have it, a fun card to say a Happy New Year to all the Heffy Doodlers out there!
These pandas from the Pandtastic Painters stamp set were the perfect models for New Year festivities, and I paired them up with wine glasses and a wine bottle from the Ghoulfriends stamp set. I later added the cute scroll from the You Go Gull stamp set and after some mild deliberation, I decided to add the year 2023 using Jet Alphabetters Stamps.
For the sentiments, I made a combination using the Happy New Baby Jumbo Sentiment dies and the Stitched Alphabetters. I layered some white card behind my watercoloured orange card so that the orange words had a shadow, making it pop more against the background!
For the background, after using some distress oxides, I added sparkle with some nuvo glacier paste and the Twinkle Twinkle stencil. It gave the perfect touch of sparkle to this celebratory card!
I hope you enjoy the video, and I wish everyone out there a wonderful 2023!
Happy New Year! <3
