Happy New Year!!!

If you have not yet seen the inspiration picture at Inkspirational - go and have a look (its below, too) - just amazing. I knew I had to play.....And this is perfect for a New Years card, since I am a little tired of making Christmas cards.....



I basically recreated this beautiful picture finally putting my Memory Box City Scape dies to good use... I have used them before, but forgot to take a picture of the card, before I sent it out....
I off set the die cuts just a tad. The black paper is glitter paper -looks really fabulous in real life. For teh firework I played around a little bit, since I don't have a die for it. I wanted to use the Memory Box Chloe Stem die 
and turn it upside down, but I did not like the look of it - too bulky. So I cut it apart, as you can see:


I thought that looks better....The sentiment is by STAMPlorations Sentiment Builders: Christmas & New Year and Bloom Sketches. Added some Wink of Stella to the NEW  YEAR, but you can't see that...
I am also linking this card with the Snippets Playground - use a snippet (white strip at the bottom and "firework")
Inkspire - Happy New Year
and with Simon Says - Anything Goes


     

Happy New Year to all of you - my followers and visitors. May you stay happy and healthy and get even more crafting time than the prior year!
Keep stamping!

Love this Cornelia! Way to use your die cut in a totally different way! That's thinking outside the box! Happy to see you over at Ink too. :-). Happy New Year!

Love your glittery card! I always admire your ability to think outside the box (here: die) and use them creatively! And when it looked too bulky you didn't throw it out but cut it apart! Brilliant! Happy New Year!

Very inventive Cornelia. I just wanted to get my pastels out until I realised they were still on the shelf at my Son's!
Wishing you health and happiness in 2015. :)

Hi Cornelia!

Wow, this is just fabulous! Who's a clever little sausage thinking to use the Chloe Stem that way then? And I do so love the Cityscape dies - in fact I'm waiting for mine to arrive any day now - can see lots of great uses for them!

Happy New Year!

Hugs

Klar doch, Cloe Stem auf den Kopf gestelt, ein bisschen zurechtgeschnitten und fertig ist das Feuerwerk!! Warum komme ich nicht auf solche geniale Ideen??
Umwerfend schön deine Karte!!
