Happy New Year!

I would like to wish a happy New Year to everyone! This is my very last Crafter's Companion post. The new design team was announced -- did you see it? Lots of talent there! I have loved designing for the company, but it was time to move on, focusing on work and my Etsy shop which was neglected a bit too much for my liking in 2013.

I made this card to ring in the new year, featuring the Humphrey Xmas EZ Mount Stamp Set - Auld Lang Syne, a New Year's favorite of mine.

I started by stamping the image onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored it up with my Spectrum Noir pens (CR3, CR6, PP1, PP3, PP4, CT1, CT2, CT4, LY1, LY2, LY3, IG1, IG3, IG4, TB4, TB5, TB6, TB7, IB1, IB2, IB3, BG2, BG3, BG5, BP3, TN6). The confetti and other accents are Silver Liquid Pearls. I stuck it all down with Collal Tacky Glue, matting it and backing it with a doily that just barely peeks out :) After stamping the sentiment, I stuck some blue pearls next to it and added some pen stitching. Voila, done!

I am not one to make New Year's resolutions, but I did make myself a bit of one anyway, relating to Khristen's Craft Room. I intend to make something each day for the shop now that I have a little more time in my schedule, filling it up with crafty goodness!

Did you make any crafty resolutions? I'd love to hear about them!

I hope you all have a fabulous 2014!
