LFF #66 - First of 2014

Happy Aloha Friday!

Sorry everyone!  I pre-posted something earlier for the wrong date!! My bad!!  But no worries, I have another post to share.  If you didn't see the project I had for KBD cool, if you did no worries.  You'll see it again later this month. :)  Please stop by the KBD blog today to see the new challenge and the Bee's posts. :)

So since I didn't really have to post for Kitty Bee Designs I can post a LFF which would be the first of 2014!  Today for Lilo's Fun Friday #66 share I have another tag/envelope featuring the Year of the Horse from Sister Stamps.  I work for a Chinese company so I think I'll make something similar for Chinese New Year for a few of my co-workers, minus the money (maybe).  (lol)


I used black cardstock for my base and the beautiful red/gold paper is from DCWV.  Love this new line of Asian papers.  Sorry the picture is so bad, I was in a hurry and didn't get a chance to get a good shot of the paper.  I added some pretty flowers from Petaloo.

The inside tag is super simple with a few kanji sentiments stamped with gold Encore pigment ink.  I colored the horse with Copics, tried to go for a golden tone but looks like honey to me.  :D


Yikes!  The picture is really bad, but I wanted to show you the message inside the window.  Another awesome laser cut die word from Island Scrapbooking.  When I was visiting I made sure to pick up several of these words in white so that I could color them up to match my projects.  This one I colored red and it pops really nicely off the black.  Here's the back of the envelope...

Using the black circle that was a result of the front window I embossed it and then using some scraps of the red and gold paper I die cut 2014 using the CC Cutter dies.

Mahalo for stopping by today!  Have a terrific Aloha Bones/Hawaii Five-O Friday!!
