Another Great Year…Another Great Occasions Catalog!

18 Jan

With January in full swing, and many of my new toys having arrived from the new Occasions Catalog, I’ve been playing a lot in my stamp room!

Today I wanted to show you one of the first projects I made with one of the first stamp sets I ordered, Another Great Year.  I just had to have the large “Happy Birthday to You” stamp.

Another Great Year

Wood #133038, $23.95
Clear #133041, $17.95

Here’s the project…I just love the bright colors.  All I did to create it was to sponge the color directly onto the cardstock.  SIMPLE!  The image is embossed in black.  Then just add a jewel to complete it!

occasions2Colors:  Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight
