Good Morning! Today I have a special Happy New Year Card using the Stampin’ Up! New Year Celebration stamp set. This is an exclusive set and this is the first time that it is available outside of Japan. New Years is a very big holiday in Japan, and since it’s part of my heritage and Stampin’ Up! made this set available in the US, I had to make a card with it. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
This is a simple, flat card, but I did a lot of stamping! Also, since many of the stamps are thick images, I pulled out my Stamparatus so that I would be able to get good alignment if I had to stamp an image again. Luckily, my stamp pads were pretty juicy too. I started by stamping the Mt. Fuji outline stamp from the Stampin’ Up! New Year Celebration stamp set in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel. Then I stamped the inside of Mt. Fuji in Gray Granite. I love how it leaves a mountain snow cap! I mounted these two stamps on either side of my Stamparatus plate and practiced stamping on copy paper several times to get the alignment right, moving the inside stamp slightly each time until I was happy with the results.
I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! New Year Celebration stamp set on the bottom in Granny Apple Green. Again, the Stamparatus was great because I moved my paper 1″ after each stamping, resulting in a neat row of 4 stamped leaf clusters. Then I stamped the ribbon and bow using Poppy Parade. I stamped the clouds in Seaside Spray.
I stamped the plum flowers in Petal Pink. I stamped them randomly in the space, and stamped a few single flowers to fill it up. I stamped the gourd in Soft Suede after stamping off. The gourd reminded me of one my Mother had on her knick knack shelf while I was growing up, so I had to use it. The last thing I stamped was the Kanji Happy New year symbol in Memento Tuxedo Black. When I finished stamping, I adhered the panel to a Poppy Parade card base with snail
I stamped another row of leaf clusters using Granny Apple Green ink on a Whisper White panel for the inside of the card. I added a cluster of plum flowers in Petal Pink in the upper corner and then adhered it to the inside of the card with snail.
I hope you like this card – it’s a little different from my usual style with layers, die cuts and bling. Click on the picture below to open a flyer on this exclusive stamp set. I printed it out and inserted it in my stamp case so I would have a reference for all the stamps in this special set.
