Happy 2014


I'm still making Christmas cards while I've still got the stamps out (once they go away, I won't get them out until November), but in between times I made this card for a few challenges.

STAMPlorations are having a Stamps and Silhouettes challenge and, while I don't start my Design Team gig until January, I thought I'd play along.  There are only a few days left for the challenge and design team call, so if you're still thinking about it, get a move on!


STAMPlorations are also sponsoring this week's CASology challenge, where the cue word is party.


CAS-ual Fridays are having a Happy New Year challenge,


There's a photo inspiration challenge at Just Us Girls:


And the challenge at Less is More is to choose a previous challenge.  I've gone for Week 42, Silhouette.


Here's the full view of my card:


I stamped the silhouette image, then masked it while I stamped three rows of 'happy'.  I left the mask in place while I flicked some Evergreen Bough and Mustard Seed Distress Inks onto the card square, then mounted it onto gold card, then onto the card base and added the numbers.

Stamps: STAMPlorations VIGNETTE Ever AfterVIGNETTE Chevron and Arrows
Dies: Sizzix Girls are Weird.
