The Coming Year


Welcome back everybody.

Just a few more days before Christmas, I bet you’re busy preparing for your holiday activities!  And then the New Year would soon arrive!!

Do you stay up on New Year’s Eve and ring in the New Year with your loved ones?  Do I hear Yes?  Well me too, well I used to, now my DH and I are both too tired and fall asleep way before the “ball drop”!!  Oups just gave away my age!!!  Hahaha!!

So I am welcoming the New Year way ahead of time!







My process:

  • Stamp leaves from Hero Arts Garden Flowers by Lia with distress ink on white card stock and heat emboss with clear EP.  Closely trim.
  • Punch a 2 inch circle using white card stock.  Stamp ‘Hello’ from Hero Arts Say it All set in black and heat emboss with clear EP.
  • Glue trimmed leaves on edge of circle.
  • Add number sticker on from, and foam adhesive on the back.  Set aside.
  • On white card stock lay Hero Arts BasicGrey Flag Pattern Stencil on top and secure in place.
  • Press clear embossing ink on desire areas, remove stencil, heat emboss with Brass EP.
  • Trim the emboss piece to fit light green card base, adhere.
  • Glue prepared circle on top.
