Happy New Year! I can’t wait to see what 2019 will bring not only in my personal life but in my Stampin’ Up! life. I have plans to try some new things so be sure to stay in touch through my blog, my Facebook page and other social media platforms and in person at my events and classes.
For this card I used Embossing Paste. I want to share a tip with you about storing your paste. When the paste is new the container is sealed with foil, but when you open it up you have to break that seal. In order to keep the paste moist you want to store it sealed AND I add back a piece of foil. Just cut a piece and place it over the top of the jar and then screw the lid back on. I also put mine back in the little plastic bag but I think its the foil that makes the difference. This jar was originally opened in the spring and then I used it again these past couple of months and it was perfect. So if you have trouble with yours drying out then add the foil back to seal it up. It also helps while using the jar on a project – the foil just rests over the top and you don’t have to take the lid on and off while working.

One more little trick on this card. I used the Timeless Tidings Stamp set and if you look at the sentiment it also includes the words ” And A” as part of the stamp. Well I cut that part off of my stamp so I had just the Happy New Year. The Holiday catalog will end on January 2nd so you have a little bit more time to order anything you didn’t already get.
Be safe and enjoy the New Year!!
