O Happy Day

Happy New Year's Eve!

I played last Friday with 2 techniques, multi-step stamping and spirelli winding.  What is spirelli winding??  Ah, you'll have to watch my YouTube video dated 12/28 (and I welcome you to subscribe to my channel). I received some orange embroider floss as a mystery item to use on a card for a special swap at our January 26 SALSA (stampers at large stamping away) group.  I wanted to be ready and not get rushed so tada! Done!

I played with some clear stamps from Spellbinders and got a really cool effect on the background part of the image! I'm wondering if using FSJ's fusion inks had something to do with it as I have been told they are not good for clear stamps and I don't have any dye inks.

Here you can see the bubbling on the lightest color.  What a great look!  I splattered some Sparkle Silk on the flower after I finished my video.  A little bling never hurts!

I hope you have a safe evening and have a wonderful new year.  I want to share something else that I shared on FB:

Hello, welcome to Flight #2019. We are prepared to take off into the New Year. Please make sure your Attitude and Blessings are secured and locked in an upright position. All self-destructive devices should be turned off at this time. All negativity, hurt and discouragement should be put away. Should we lose Altitude under pressure, during the flight, reach up and pull down a Prayer. Prayers will automatically be activated by Faith. Once your Faith is activated you can assist other passengers. There will be NO BAGGAGE allowed on this flight. The Captain (GOD) has cleared us for takeoff. Destination GREATNESS.

May your 2019 be a year of great blessings, good health, and God bless you!

Artsy Fartsy Valentine Cards

Yep, that's my personal opinion as these 2 cards are outside my comfort zone!  I like them but for me to come up with these ideas is not the way my mind tracks!

These 2 cards are from the Follow Your Heart launch Dec. 1.  I finally got around to getting them made!  But with Christmas my priorities were not on these.  Aren't they lovely! I got 3 card kits and a special in the Follow Your Heart Project Plus Kit (BD-0448).

I used a wide variety of products to make these and a LOT of detail cutting on the 2nd card.

The stamp set I used are unavailable until January 1.  So, until then I can only give you the name and SKU #.  The top left card used All The Feels (SS-0660) and Sending My Love (SSD-0655). The bottom right card only used Sending My Love.

I will be sending these out and I'm sure my recipients will like them!  Now to be sure I don't "lose" them" in my room!
