Today’s Sketch Challenge (SC625) is easy & seemed perfect for a New Year’s card. Also perfect if someone was late sending a Christmas card to someone else. Not naming names…OK, it was me & this is my clock so it’s no wonder.

For my sparkly, starry card,  I heat embossed the circle greeting onto a die cut silver metallic piece of card stock using silver ink and a sparkly silver embossing powder. After die cutting the swirl behind it & the little stars, I coated them w/ the silver ink & embossed them w/ the same powder. The two blue piece of card stock were die cut & I coated the edges & embossed them, as well. The sky blue piece also has the star bg heat embossed on top.

Here’s a look at the inside.

On my Santa Star card, I decided to make it into a shaker card. I really love shakers & I think they add a little something extra & kids love them. The shaker on this was made using a cellophane pouch I made out of a little envelope that embellishments come in. There’s not a lot of depth or bulk to it so it’s definitely mailable.

After die cutting the white top panel w/ the Double Stitched Rectangles, I positioned the largest Double Stitched Star die at an angle toward the top. The largest Sparkling Star die was used to cut the red frame behind it & I used the smallest star dies to die cut all the sparkly stars I put inside the shaker. After sealing it, I attached it behind the star opening & added a thin foam sheet under it give it a bit of room. I added a green paper star behind it before I attached it all to the striped paper. Santa was colored w/ Copics & fussy cut. The greeting was stamped on another star & the glittery presents added beside Santa.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

For my Rudolph card, after stamping & coloring him, he was die cut w/ the matching die. I found some paper in my stash that had a row of little red nosed reindeer on it so I cut just that strip & found some other papers that coordinated w/ it. The greeting was stamped on a Stitched Oval & backed w/ a plain Oval & I thought it needed a little something extra so I die cut the stars using the Splendorous Stars & Shining Star dies.

Today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC563) is all about hats & since I chose THIS hat because I knew I had this cute Jack O’Lantern w/ a pointy hat image I could use. I’m also adding this to the WT601 Challenge to heat emboss (the greeting was).  starry-jack-09807
To begin, I stamped the Jack O’Lantern, colored w/ Copics, added a little Wink of Stella to the stars & buckle then fussy cut it. For the white panel, funny enough, but I already had it w/ the embossed greeting & the big star cut out of it. Seriously…I save everything! And more often than not, it pays off. I thought it made the perfect backdrop for Jack & the die cut stacked stars down the right when attached on top of a black layer. starry-jack-xcu-09813
The stacked stars were die cut out of black, gold glitter & coppery orange glitter card stock then paper pieced all together. In person, the coppery orange is a lot more orange but not so bright it overshadows the orange in the jack o’lantern. 
Below is the inside…I used a negative of the stacked stars as a mask & sponged the colors through it. And the Copics I used to color Jack are right underneath it.
