GDT at The Male Room

Hi Everyone,

I am so delighted and proud to be able to be GDT at The Male Room for the next two weeks.
The theme is New Beginnings.

So, I made a New Years card. I got those fabulous pop-up numbers from my sister for Christmas. They are from My Favorite Things. I had to use them right away. Combined them with the New York silhouette die, which is also from MFT. I sponged the background with a variety of inks - mainly distress oxides.

I added black glitter paper under the numbers and a small strip on the side.

I really love how this turned out. I was contemplating adding water splatters, but in the end decided against them. I wanted to keep a clean look.

I hope to see you at The Male Room!

Happy Stamping and Happy New Year to you all!

Time Out Challenge - new beginnings

Oh this is stunning. Such rich and deep colours. See you there in April! And thanks for joining Time Out Challenges....don’t think I have seen it in the gallery there?

Love love the depth of the colour on this card, simply stunning Cornelia.

That's such a stunning sky behind the cool city silhouette, Cornelia ... and I love how those popped up numbers cast a shadow against it. Wonderful sister ... perfect gift choice! Congratulations on your GD spot with The Male Room ... and thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! I'm guessing this isn't in our gallery yet because of the time difference ... will check a little later! Hugs, Anita :)

Congratulations! You've brought a very handsome (translation: stunning!), vibrant card to your GD role! Love that sky-silhouette combination and yes, the pop-up numbers are VERY cool! Excellent gift from your sister!

Holy moley, you've been really busy. This is spectacular...love that sky and those numbers are just perfect. Glad you left off the spatters they'd distract from the constrast of the silhouette skyline and that incredibly gorgeous sky.

Verna Angerhofer said...

Wow! I love that sky for your city scape.
