"New Stash" at FSC and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

We are using NEW STASH for the current theme for Fashionable Stamping Challenges! How fun to pull out some of those never used treasures or perhaps some gifts Santa left for you! Won't you join us for some Stamping Fun using your New Stash! Stop by FSC to have a look at the clever and gorgeous creations of all the Fashionettes! I want to thank FSC for inviting me to be a part of such a great group! This is not only a group of collective talent, but such a fun and caring group! We actually have a blast together and that is what this is all about, having a good time and encouraging others to just have fun!

So here is what I came up with for the Fashionable Stamping Challenges "New Stash" challenge and I will also be linking this to Grungy Monday's "Get Out The Tissues," Simon Says Stamp and Show a "Tim Holtz Themed Tag," Lisa's Bloggers Challenge "Celebrate Good Times." Using some New Stash, I wanted to ring in the "New Year."
I used Tim's tissue tape to cover a tag and inked a little Festive Berries (new) and Vintage Photo on some areas. Ran it through the crimper several times and then gave a spray with my new "Shimmer Spritz." The spray settled nicely in the groves and added a little extra color! All stamps are my "new" Tim Holtz "Little Labels." The countdown numbers were stamped with Stazon Red on my "new" clear shrink plastic and the "2012" were stamped on red card stock using black craft ink, clear embossed and hand punched. The hand and admit one were stamped, inked with Vintage Photo and cut. I added a thin line of red Stickles to the "Admit" one! The little "party favor" was cut from foil with my new Martha Stewart "Fringe Scissors." Wrapped it around a cocktail straw, added some double sided tape and then sprinkled the glitter/bead mix. I cut a second tag from black card stock a quarter inch larger than the original tag, so I could add a little extra festive fun! I made a little batch of mixed fun using some new chunky glitter, along with some glass glitter, fine red glitter and black beads. Added some fibers and the clear tinsel is new! So I used several new items from my stash. Hope to see your amazing creations using some of that "New Stash" that I know we all have!

I want to wish all of you a very happy and amazing "2012." A big "thank you" to all of my newest followers and to those of you who take the time to visit and comment! Your comments and friendship mean so very much to me! HAPPY NEW YEAR!
