Happy New Year, Dazzlers (and Divas - Judy's group)! Your first kit of the year has arrived. As 2019 begins, many people make new goals for the New Year. Statistics show that most of those goals are never fulfilled. Judy and I decided that our theme this month would be "encouragement". Let's encourage someone to reach for that goal that they have set for themselves, whether it be a New Year resolution or just something that a friend or family member may be striving for. After making your card, pay it forward to that friend/family member who may be struggling.
This is the card that I made from the kit. Here's what I sent each of the Dazzlers:
- Gina K Hope is Faith butterfly stamp (retired) stamped on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Black ink
- Gina K Inside and Out (retired) sentiment stamped on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Black ink
- Designer Paper: the Paper Studio Denim and Pearls card stock (4 different 6x6 sheets)
- Embellishments: Paper Sweeties twine, heart brads, sequins, ribbon and gems from my stash
So as you can see I used 2 different patterned papers. The butterfly I colored with some new Spectrum Noir markers that my DH gave me for Christmas and then fussy cut the image. The sentiment was die cut with Gina Marie Designs Wine Label die. I used a Zig pen for some faux stitching. I added Wink of Stella to the butterfly. I added some of the gems and some of the sequins from the kit for embellishment. The sequins were filled with glossy accents for some extra shine.
I hope you will check out all the other team members to see what they created:
