PTI December Blog Hop

Hi friends,
Today, I'm playing along in Papertrey Ink's December Blog Hop. I haven't hopped in ages, and since I had a little crafty time on my hands, I thought I'd play along.

Here's the inspiration pic:
Here's my card:
Aren't those plates just so preeetty!---but I'm all Christmas'ed out. I wanted to make a few New Year's cards so that's what I went with. I used some True Black cardstock (PTI) and Shimmer White cardstock (PTI). I die-cut the 2,1,6 using the By the Numbers dies (PTI) and the diamond die from Lil' Inker Designs. I masked off the middle section and spritzed it with Perfect Pearls. I heat embossed the sentiment and sprinkled on some sequins in red, green, Sparkling clear, and gold. Last, I rounded the corners and inked the edges with some Color Box Frost White ink. I thought the touch of green & red would hint of Christmas and do double duty as a New Year's card too! *Ü*

Here's a peek at the innies:
The sentiment comes from the Winter Scripty Sayings by Lawn Fawn and the diamond is from Girl's Best Friend stamp set Lil' Inker Designs and they are heat embossed in gold.

I decided to make another one since the card design was quite quick & easy *Ü*!
Here's the second card:
This time I went with Gold & White. I kept all of the elements the same - just changed up the colors.

And because you know how I like things in threes...
I made this one for my friends at my old school. Blue and White are their school colors and I threw in some silver for sparkle.

All the innies are the same as the one above, so i didn't take a pic of them.

Thanks so much for popping in today!
May your New Year sparkle and shine!
