Happy New Year – Inking Royalty Blog Hop
Happy New Year – Inking Royalty Blog Hop. Welcome to the December blog hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate New Year’s Day, a special day to start anew and prepare for the coming year. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
I am eager to share my New Year’s projects with you, but first I want to show you a birthday card for our great leader and organizer of this blog hop, Brian King! For his birthday card, I chose the copper glimmer stars and star designer elements for the star named Brian!
Birthday Card Measurements
- Night of Navy card stock: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ scored and folded on the long side at 4-1/4″ to make the card base
- Very Vanilla card stock: 3″ x 3-3/4″ panel for stamping, 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ inside panel
- Copper Foil sheet: 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer, 3-1/8″ x 3-7/8″ layer
Straightforward directions: Cut, stamp, layer, adhere, and add three star elements.
And now for my New Year’s projects – I made a New Year’s Wishes bottle tag and a Happy New Year’s card that can be used as a set for a gift for hosts, neighbors, or any deserving person in your world. The tag is fun with layers and sparkly ribbons, and the card is quick and simple with die cuts instead of stamping. The silver foil and the snowflakes are great for a celebration of glitz and glam to ring in the new year.

Die cut the layers using square stitched shape and rectangular stitched dies . Die cut three snowflakes from silver foil and three from vellum and layer them on the black square. Adhere with glue dots and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Stamp the sentiment in Versamark ink on white card stock. Sprinkle with silver embossing powder and heat the powder to melt it. Trim the ends to make a banner, and add a rhinestone. Glue the ribbons on the back of the tag and drape around a bottle.
