Stamping411 Challenge

This card came about for several reasons: 1- to enter in the Stamping411 Weekly Challenge (I have missed them the past couple of weeks.) 2- My friend came over to help me cut some cardstock and she cut about 20+ pieces 2 3/4x 5 1/2 (oops, was the wrong size) so I wanted to use one and luckily it was one of the sizes for the challenge! 3- I wanted to use my new A Brand New Year (Item 116838 - $8.95) from the new mini catalog (effective September1). 4- Also wanted to try embossing with the two colors! I did cut the letters from the Sizzlit Alphabet (Stampin' Up) Item 113453 - Naturally Serif - $19.95). I used Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry cardstock and Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Paper. The corduroy button (Item 114340 $9.95 Kraft) was 'dyed' using the Melon Mambo ink pad. Anyway, how many reasons do we 'really' need to be creative! LOL Thanks for stopping by and check out all the challenges at Stamping411. Until next time! Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'

I love it, Nancy! Great idea! I plan on getting that stamp. I send New Year's cards to people I get Christmas cards from unexpectedly and too late to reciprocate.

This is a very pretty card! I have had a customer ask for examples of New Years' cards--I will share yours w/ her. :)

Hi Nancy, love your card and those colors. Just don't know how you did it. Did you use two colors of embossing powder? And then sponged the rest? And how did you get the white parts? Hope you can help me out! Thanks so much in advance. Greetings, Christa from the Netherlands.
