I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

Get Inky Stamps by Blue Moon Creations

I am excited to be one of the new  guest designer on the Get Inky Stamp design team.

Right now, they have a super fun anything goes challenge going on over at Get Inky! Challenge and this is my  inspiration.  This is their first challenge of the year and New Years post.  Since this is a special occasion I thought I would show you my New  Years Eve party creations

For this project, I used a digital image from Get Inky! Stamps called Hap Bee New Years and used a New Years hat, wine glass and a black paper from my stash. To colour my bee  I used my Copics (Y38, Y17 and Y6 ).   I used a stencil  from my stash and with a yellow PanPastels to create the background of my invitation and a black sharpie to frame the image. The "You're invited" was done with my computer. To complete the card I cut out of yellow glitter paper the stars with a Nestibilities die cut and the 2014 date with an alphabet die cut set from my stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoy this project.   Get inky Stamps has several other stamps sets that you could for other celebrations such as a birthday party.  Check out their stamps here.

There is still time to join in the current challenge. I hope to see you again soon at Get Inky! Challenge. Have a creative day!!
