Happppppppppppy New Year












Happppppppppppy New Year everyone!  Here's to 2012 being the best it can be!  I said I would come back to share a few creations done up in reds and creams.  While very traditional...I still love it.  The first is a card I made using some letter stamps and a Pink Persimmon stamp set.   I am trying to break out the stamps more.  Pretty sure I said that last year but better late than never.  The second is a chipboard layered plaque I painted up and distressed.  Added some wood buttons in the shape of a heart as a base on top and than added my embellies to the top.   The third is a puffy heart paper mache piece....the heart is quite large.  I did a few of these last year and was so sad when I ran out of the hearts.  This year I hunted down a few more online.  I love to alter them whether they are for Valentines or for everyday.  So much fun!  I made a homemade vintage lace flower and added a October metal pin to the middle.  LOVE that vintage touch.  Of course this one called for some glitter.  I have had a few of you again ask about the glitter.  As I said I just simply use adhesive spray.  I use Martha Stewart glitter and JoAnns brand both, what ever I have on hand.  Messy, but fun, and worth it for the outcome I think.  The last project is a metal tin bought at Michaels and just gussied up with an ornate frame, papers, buttons, and whatever I fancy.  The toppings are the best part, right?   I made a few little Valentine tags to tuck inside the metal box for fun.  Again trying to use some stamps.   Well I won't bore you with my New Year's resolutions, but I will say one is to lose a few unwanted Christmas pounds.  Here is to sharing and being creative in the New year!  hugs, cherry

Oh, these are just fabulous! I wish that when I tried to do something similar, it would turn out as beautiful as your's. I just received your sweet comment on my blog (Creating with Paper and Bows). You mentioned that I haven't left you a comment but I do on just about every post of your's under pattyo.
