Monthly Moments: January

Welcome to day 3 of sneaks for the January Papertrey Ink Release.   Today we are showcasing Monthly Moments: January.  There are lots of fun images in the stamp set, a great new Journal Card and an adorable paper pad this month.  

Here is a quick card I whipped up using some of the new goodies.


To start this  card, I used some Aqua Mist ink and blended in on the card base.  I took another piece of card stock and cut a window using the new Journal Card 8 Die.  I added a piece of clear card stock and some foam tape to make the shaker card.  I stamped the sentiment in black on the card base.  Next, I used the same Journal Card 8 die to make the confetti out of gold cardstock.  I thought this would be a great color mix for a New Years card.  I put each piece on the acetate, gold side down and then put the card base on last.  


This new Journal Card die is very versatile and I can't wait to use it on another card.  I have the Journal Card in gold now that I used all these little pieces.  It is sitting here so pretty and I really think I need to make another card out of it.  :)

Check out the rest of the team.  I am sure they have some beauties waiting!  Thanks for stopping in!
