My Favorite Things – November 2019 Vault Release – Cheers

Hi, Friends!

Welcome to day 2 of the MFT Vault Release celebration! The vault is open, making old goodies new again. Today, I’m sharing the Cheers set and combining it with some current products to create a New Years card.

I started by stamping and coloring the Cheers image using Copic markers. I wanted her to wear a green glitter sequin dress so I tried to give the dress that look. After die-cutting my image, I added white gel-highlights and stipples to her dress to give it the look of sparkle.

Skin:  E20, E04, E00, E000
Greens:  G21, G24, G28, G29
Yellows:  Y000, Y00, Y08, Y38
Blues:  B0000, B000, B05
Browns:  E21, E23, E20

For my background, I first stamped the Fireworks and embossed with white embossing powder over a white panel. Using finger daubers, I ink-blended the color of the fireworks using Wilted Violet, Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers, and Abandoned Coral. Then, I filled in all the white space with Blueprint Sketch. Finally, I add Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink around the edges. To give the background a night sky look, I also splattered my panel with water and white ink before trimming it down to mat my card base. Then I sealed the entire front panel with some Tim Holtz Micro Glaze – it really brings out the vibrancy of the ink colors and makes it waterproof, hiding the chalky look that Distress Oxides can have.

My final step was to add my sentiment. The word Cheers is stamped and embossed over black card stock. To create my numbers, I used the Captions Numbers Die-namics. I die-cut once with Gold Sparkle Card Stock and 3 more times using white card stock to layer the numbers for dimension.

I hope you enjoyed this card! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
