New Year...New Stuff!

Happy New Year to you! May you be blessed in the coming year with much happiness, good health...and new stampin' goodies too! Here is a card I made with some of my new stampin' goodies.

I absolutely LOVE working with the new Framelits, Edgelits and the accompanying embossing folders, Adorning Accents...as you can see by my card! The Everyday Enchantment paper, a freebie during Sale-a-Bration 2012, totally rocks too! I chose my colors of Pool PartyCalypso Coral* & Lucky Limeade based on the colors of the paper.

* I originally stated here that the color used was Peach Parfait, which was incorrect...sorry about that! Guess I need to use those colors more so that I know the difference. ;-)

The Apothecary Art set that coordinates with the Labels Framelits, is so pretty and nice to watercolor. Since the paper is kind of distressed and toned down color wise in some spots, I think the Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding works fine since I didn't have any Lucky Limeade ribbon.

These products will all be available for you to order soon...starting January 4th the Occasions Mini begins and towards the end of the month, January24th, Sale-a-Bration starts...WOO HOO! my favorite time of the stampin' year!

Edited to add: After I made this post I realized that today is my Blogiversary! It's hard to believe that I have now been blogging for 5 years! Here's a link to my very first post. It's been a lot more fun than I expected and not only have I made some new friends through my blog, it's been a useful tool to myself to keep track of things I have created and for who & when I have created them. To those who read my blog regularly...thanks so much! For those who may have just stumbled upon my blog....hope you'll be back!

This is the most lovely card I've seen with these edgelits. I really like how you have used it twice. it somehow feels more balanced with feeling over the top. I hope that makes sense. It's really beautiful!

Wow ... This is a lovely card. The colors work so well together.

Fabulous card!! I agree with Chris, the nicest sample I've seen with the edgelits. Is that main piece Poppy Parade? It's lovely. I have a hard time with that colour, but here it is wonderfully toned down with that dsp.
Happy Blogiversary btw :)

Thanks for the nice comments ladies. :-) Patricia, I too have not used Poppy Parade very much, the color I used here was Peach Parfait.

Hi Lynn - thought I'd pop in from craft world and say hi. I love this card. I wasn't sure about this stamp set but you have convinced me.

My favorite thing about this card is how you used the new edgelit!! I hadn't thought of that and don't believe I've seen that idea anywhere else. I am letting someone borrow my edgelit right now, but I can't wait to get it back!
