Backround Stash and IPC 113

Happy Holiday Everyone!
Here is our current challenge.

For my last project for 2019, I came up with this card.

 Cheers! a card by Diane Morales| Newton New Year Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs

I love to create!
when you create a lot sometimes you run out of ideas.
That is where the background stash comes in.
When I’m in a crafty rut, I create backgrounds to wake up my creativity.
I keep them in a little box in my scrap drawer.

I have had some of them for years, just waiting there ready to inspire me
That is how the background for this card began.
I was struggling with coming up with a card using the challenge colors.
I went thru the stash and found this background with teal and texture.
I could not tell you when I created it, or how I made it, 
I just knew that it was going to work for the challenge
I loved the teal and texture, but to add that little bit of extra,
I stenciled balloons on the top

 the BALLOONS STENCIL and Distress Oxide Salty Ocean 
was the perfect touch to make the background POP.
Since New Year’s is knocking on the door, you just must use
Newton popping bottles what a fun idea for the last card of the year!
My sentiment is stamped on a banner from the
To add the silver sparkle, I stamped in champagne bubbles with silver ink.

That is all I have for this year.
Can’t wait to see what 2020 brings.
See everyone on the other side!
Happy New Year

  1. Ha! We totally think alike since I also have a box or "stash" of backgrounds! I find when I have my stencils already out it's easier to make a few different ones and then I save them for when I need one! Now I just have to find time to create! LOL!
