New year - New Stash

Firstly may I wish all of my follower friends a very happy, healthy and creative 2012. I have greatly appreciated your support and comments during 2011 and look forward to hopefully providing more papercraft projects which you will enjoy. Thank you so much.  I would also like to thank the recent new followers whom I haven't so far said welcome to. I am honoured,  again thank you.
 At Fashionable Stamping Challenges, we are starting the New Year asking you to use any new stash the big guy in the red suit may have brought you. It can be anything which we crafty folk call stash, a wide choice.
The theme is anything you wish it to be, just let us see your new stash. My family  don't buy me craft stuff, they all seem to think I have enough or say they wouldn't know what to get. I think it makes good sense, no I don't have enough, who ever does? Being honest I love having the buzz of buying my own stash, especially with the gift of cash, don't you? I bought this set of stamps a couple of weeks before Christmas, as a present to myself.  I set about making the card as if it was a snap of a New Year's Eve party. I hope you like it. Please do pop over to the FSC blog for the samples from my fellow Fashionettes are fabulous. I will be popping around your blogs to to thank you for joining us with our first challenge for 2012.
Materials used:-
Stamps - Kanban Jasper Steampunk - figures and clock.
Champagne bottle - La Blanche
Papers from craft stash.
Copic pens  and TH Distress Inks to add colours.


  1. Such a festive card, Caz! I love tht you made a New Year's card. The layout is fabulous. My family buys me designer paper from time-to-time, but rarely stamps. I, too, use my gifts of cash from my birthday to purchase stamps. Happy New Year, dear friend. Best, Yvonne
