Inspired Stamps Happy New Year Card

Hello and welcome here! This week the Inspired Stamps DT is sharing New Years creations with you, so be sure to check out what they've created, their links are in my sidebar.

I have to tell you this card gave me the run around, lol. I had hit a creative block and couldn't seem to create something new, so I went with some 'old' ideas for my New Years card:) It's not the fanciest of cards I've made, but sweet and simple.

Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"

My fall back design for cards is to choose 2 different patterened papers, and separate them with a border, or ribbon. Then I couldn't seem to figure out what to do for an image/sentiment. I really liked the idea I used last week inside my card with the tree, so I copied that idea for the front...and used some Spring-like colours. This time I used a piece of thread to loop around the tree branch to hold the sign. I sponged the clouds, and used foam squares to add the tree and sentiment.

Recipe: Inspired Stamps-Ask, Seek, Knock, Grasses, 1" Circle Sentiments, Labelmaker Alphabet & Blessed Little Christmas, CTMH PP-Miracle, CTMH CS-White Daisy & Olive, CTMH Ink-Black, Chocolate, Sweet Leaf, Breme Brulee & Sky, Nestabilities-Labels 14 & Labels 20, White Grosgrain Ribbon, Brown Thread, Rhinestones, Foam Squares, Copics-G24 & E15.

Love the sign hanging on the branch! I've had the same creative slump myself-must be all the sugary treats from Christmas!

I love how it turned out, sometimes we just need to go back to an older idea and give it a new twist.
