New Year, New Beginnings

Hi Guys

Well over at Try it on Tuesdays there are changes afoot.  From today the format of the challenges is going to change and we are going to have a 4 week rota of challenges.  Week 1 is A Card, week 2 is a tag, Week 3 free choice - week 4 altered art and the weeks that have 5 weeks well you will just have to check in as that will be chosen by a member of the DT and it will be different.

Back to this week though and it is week one of January which means it is a Card.  The theme this week is New Beginnings and that can mean anything, new babies, weddings, new house, new job, new year etc.

I have gone for new baby and here it is

I forgot to add this piccy too!

I have used Daffodil Delight so that you can have it in your 'go to' cards.  I have used the Baby Tees wheel (pg 39 catalogue) with basic grey to wheel it in as this is softer than using Basic Black.  I have then wheeled it again and coloured in one of the babygrows in Daffodil Delight and then coloured in the 'body' with my versamark pen (pg 103) and sprinkled it with Heat and Stick powder (pg 100).  I then took my heat gun (pg 100) and heated it until it turns from powder to sticky (this happens a lot quicker than using embossing powder, it also has a distinct smell as it 'turns').  When this happens then I add my Dazzling Diamonds (pg 100) and heat once more (just for a couple of seconds) to 'seal' the Dazzling Diamonds.

I have used Curly Cute (pg 75) and Daffodil Delight ink (pg 82) and stamped onto Whisper White.  I have used my trimmer (pg107) to trim down the word and punched the ends with the Modern Label punch (pg 105) and then punched two more from Daffodil Delight cardstock (pg 82) and added it to either end and trimmed where necessary.

So go on over to Try it on Tuesdays and see what the rest of the Design Team have on offer for you. 

Well I hope you like and until next time

Happy Crafting
