Saturday Blog Hop: Bringing in the New Year

Hello! Thanks for joining us on the Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop! We are excited to bring you our last projects of 2023, so our theme is Bringing in the New Year. It has been another fun year being a part of this blog hop and hopefully bringing you some inspiration for your own crafting. Stay tuned next year for more fun projects!

Stampin' Up! Card Ideas Festive New Year Simply Sparkling

I wanted to create something sparkly for this New Year's themed card, so I knew that I had to use the More Dazzle paper. To make it stand out, I decided to pair it with only one colour, Berry Burst.

The More Dazzle paper was cut to 3 3/4" x 5". The Basic White was cut to 3 1/2" x 5" and then I used the Labels Aglow Dies to let that sparkly paper shine through. I added it on top of the More Dazzle using Foam Adhesive Strips. I punched the More Dazzle paper using the Modern Oval Punch to create a little backdrop for the sentiment. I wanted to use the 'Best Ever' sentiment from the Simply Sparkling Stamp Set and heat embossed it in white on Berry Burst cardstock. The 'You're The' words come from the Heartfelt Hellos Stamp Set.

Here are the main products featured on my card today that you can purchase from me or online while available:

  • More Dazzle Specialty Paper (Item 161749)

  • Labels Aglow Dies (Item 159551)
