Non-traditional New Years Cards with Dana

Happy new year, everyone!
This is Dana here. I’m so thrilled to share my cards on this blog as Krumspring dream team!

Today, I made non traditional new year cards using happy colors and encouraging sentiments. Let’s get started!


To start, I die cut scalloped rectangle from watercolor paper. I did some masking to stamp the background except the scallop part.

I then stamped background image using watermark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. After ink blending the background with  distress inks, I splattered some water and white acrylic paint using mini mister and paint brush.

Next, I stamped toucan image 2 times onto the watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx black. I trimmed wing from one and glued it to other toucan. I colored toucan with Peerless watercolors. To give it a highlight, I used white gel pen.

For clover, I stamped it using distress inks 2 times and brushed image smoothly using waterbrush. I also added sparkles to the clover using Wink of stella brush.

I then white heat embossed the sentiment on the black card stock and cut it out with banner die.

To finish, I foam mounted all elements and embellished clear sequins.

[ Supplies I used for card 1 ]

Background : One triangle at a time stamp set

Bird, clover, sentiment : Tou-can do it stamp set


For second card, I started by stamping geometry images using lots of dye inks onto the white card stock. Do you know ‘Greenery’ is the color of 2017 by Pantone? I used that color on my main hexagon image.

Other colors are inspired from Pantone 2017 spring colors, too. After inking, I stamped sentiments using Versafine Onyx black.

Lastly, I added various patterns using white gel pen to the geometry images. I love how them turned out. I then glued inked panel to the white card base.

Small dot : Happiness overload stamp set

Sentiment : You rock! stamp set (You rock!),

Shoot for the moon stamp set (There is no one like you)
