New Somethings Challenge

Happy Friday All and Happy 2009!

We have a new challenge for you over on STAMP SOMETHING today and in keeping with the new year, our theme is "New Somethings." We'd like to see you create something "new" and you can interpret this however you choose. Maybe use a new product you received over the holidays, or a try a new technique or color combo, or make a project for a new baby or house or job. Anything that has to do with "new" will work for this one.

Our blog candy prize will be a chance to guest design with the STAMP SOMETHING Design Team for two weeks! One lucky winner will be chosen to design with us on January 16th and 23rd! To enter, please submit a project using the "New Somethings" theme by Thursday, January 8th at 7pm EST and leave a comment on STAMP SOMETHING so we can visit you and see your work! Have fun and good luck to everyone!

My card was made using two new products. The first is my COPIC markers. I got some for Christmas and so I decided to practice with this sweet Sugar Nellie image. The second new item is the Nestabilities. My mom got me the set of circles, very excited to have those!

The image was a gift from my friend Jo of Only Joking. After coloring, I cut it with the Nesties and mounted it on the scalloped circle. The printed paper is Parisian Summer from SU!. The chocolate chip cardstock was embossed with the flower CB folder. The final touches were some white gel pen dots and ribbon.

It was fun doing this challenge, I got to use some favorite supplies as well as some new stuff! I hope you'll find some time to stamp something new with us this week too! Have fun and happy stamping! :)
