Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  I hope 2016 is a very Sweet ’16 for all of you!  I’m getting some crafting time in my room with my daughter today and am playing with some new goodies from MFT.  I have been trying to have a bit more willpower in buying new supplies, but did make a purchase on the last MFT 25% off sale.  I picked up some discontinued inks and some card stock, as well as the Paris and New York Skyline Border dies.  I’ve had them on my wish list since they came out and I’m so happy to have them in my hands!

During the winter months, I can see parts of the NYC skyline {a bit obstructed, mind you} from our house.  The sunrises over the city are frequently quite stunning and that was my inspiration for this card.  I started with a panel of Neenah Solar White cut with Blueprints 13, of course.  I then blended inks from Amuse {Blush, Berry, Bellini and Sky} and Mama Elephant Orangeade.  After letting that dry a bit, I stamped Happy New Year from Jaded Blossom  Happy New Year in Versafine Onyx and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then I added in my skyline, which was cut from Black Licorice card stock.  To complete the front, I added in some small star rhinestones for a bit of twinkle.  Inside is another panel of Solar White cut with Blueprints 13 and I stamped an additional sentiment from the same Jaded Blossom set.
