Happy new year card

Hi, all! Today I am sharing a shaker card using various products from Simon Says Stamp and a die cut from Hero Arts for both the SSS Wednesday challenge and the SSS Flickr challenge. The Wednesday challenge is ‘something new’ showcasing Hero Arts products and the Flickr challenge is ‘something new’ showcasing SSS products. For my new products, I used Daniel smith watercolors and the SSS retro deer die.

I started out by painting a watercolor panel with a few different Daniel smith watercolors to make it look like a cloudy sky. I then die cut SSS white glitter paper with the SSS oval bare tree collage die. I adhered acetate to the die cut panel and added two layers of double sided tape behind that. I filled the shaker with silver confetti and pressed the watercolor panel onto that. I then glued the shaker to a white card base.

I die cut the Hero Arts happy out of Neenah solar white card stock and embossed it multiple times with a red glitter embossing powder. I glued that to the top of the card. Then I die cut the SSS deer from silver glitter card stock and added a little drop of Nuvo crystal drops in autumn red to his nose (LOVE this deer!). I glued the deer onto the card using Ranger multi medium matte.

Finally, I embossed ‘new year’ in silver on SSS red card stock and die cut using a small banner die. I added the die cut to the lower part of the card using foam tape.

In the second photo, I shook the card so that the confetti was all over.

thanks so much for joining me 😊
