Year of the Pig!

Hi, Bloggin' Buddies!

I'm just popping in to share a sample of what I made for a few special friends who celebrate the Lunar New Year. This is the year of the pig, or boar. I had fun with this, using the traditional deep red and gold.

The terrific die is a fairly new one from Spellbinders and the embossing folder is an old one from Elizabeth Crafts that I found at a garage sale. The sentiments are from Mama Elephant's "Lion Dance" stamp set and, finally, the adorable party pig (colored with Copics) is from Simon Says Stamp "Birthday Farm Animals".

I love learning about different cultures and traditions and it warms my heart to be able to say a special "Happy New Year" in this manner.

Hope your year is wonderful, no matter how you celebrate it!

All About the Alcohol!

Happy New Year, Bloggin' Buddies!

I've finally been able to store all of my holiday stamping and crafting supplies and play with my alcohol inks. It has been far too long. I really like them, but it always seems to take so much set-up to get ready to use them. I don't like messes!

This alcohol doesn't come on the rocks, but on Yuppo Papper! Great stuff.

I was able to add some foil to this and I thought it still needed a little more, so I added a die-cut stitched star and a shadow script greeting from Sizzix and Tim Holtz.

Such a bright way to start off the year!

Thanks for the visit,
