Tutorial Tuesdays: New Year projects by Val!

Happy 2018 to you all🎉
Val here to share 2 New Year themed projects I made using our new release for 2018, lil miss Oddleigh New Year and Fireworks set and the Party Hats pack🎉
Both sets are on sale at 25% off until midnight pacific on Jan 5th😋

To make my Oddleigh New Year Elves card I started out by adding the blue background to the images in my Serif Craftaritst2 software by using the png file formats that come with the set.   I printed out the scene onto Neenah white cardstock and trimmed to keep a white border.  I then printed the smaller Elf and fussy cut her out.  I also printed out the hats separately and fussy cut those too.  The hat with spots is from the Party Hats pack.  

The images are coloured with Spectrum Noir Sandstone and various Sakura Pens with Ranger Stickles glitter glue applied to the fireworks and the pompom on the smaller elf.  I used Cosmic Shimmer Drops to add the fun snow drops to the background.  I then used a black Micron Pen around the edges of the blue background to create a frame and mounted the panel onto a folded card made from black cardstock. 

 My second project is a tag featuring the fun new Party Hats pack and the "Happy New Year sign" is from the Oddleigh New Year Elf set.

 I resized the "sign" in Serif Craftartist2 and printed it and the hats onto Neenah white cardstock, fussy cut and coloured using Sakura Pens.  I made my own tags from white and black cardstocks with the black one a bit larger than the white one.  I then coloured the white tag with Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink applied with an ink blending foam tool.  I then adhered the images to the tag, embellished the background with Cosmic Shimmer black drops and finished everything off with silk ribbon in black and gold.
