I wish a very Happy New Year to all of you.  May this year bring us all Good Health and Good Cheer.

I wanted to do a Happy New Year card and wasn’t sure which stamp set would work for that.   I had just pulled all of the retiring stamps and remembered Flight Of Fancy.  I love this set and did use the Halloween one a time or two. I used what is probably intended for Valentine as my New Year Baby!


My thought of the baby is the old time New Years advertisements where it showed Father Time and the New Baby.  And if you are younger than me you may not even remember that.

I used the upcoming new Blending Brushes to make the background.  I added Balmy Blue, Highland Heather and a bit of Misty Moonlight.  I stamped the baby using Memento Tuxedo Ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends. The baby is shooting loving hearts of Highland Heather this year.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.  The greeting is actually Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  I used the Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Write Marker to just color the Happy New Year part.  If you do not have the markers, you can use tape to cover the part you do not want inked, ink the stamp, remove the tape, and stamp.  Personally I love the markers.

The DSP is from the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper.  It is a darker version of the colors I used for my background.

Thank you for stopping in today!  I hope this is the beginning of a wonderful year for everyone!!
