This fun stamp set, "New Year's Cheer", has a variety of images to ring in the new year but I also see some great potential beyond that theme. I am looking forward to seeing what the other blog hop participants created and I hope you are too! This stamp set is available, this month only, for just $5 with a qualifying purchase. You can find complete details on this offer by clicking here.

It was fun making this card, still celebrating the new year, but using the banners as flags. And...isn't that bow adorable?! I see using it with some other images besides those included with this exclusive stamp set.
The colors used were Black and Raspberry. "What about the pink color", you ask? That is just the second generation of Raspberry. (I stamped the Raspberry banner and then stamped it again, without reinking the image, to get the lighter shade of pink. Cool, huh?) The gold strip of paper was trimmed from the Uptown Fundamentals Paper Pack (it is beautiful). The flagpoles were also cut from that paper.
When my artwork needs a "little something else", I like doing tone-on-tone random-stamping as you see done on the piece of Raspberry cardstock.
