GOOD TIME TO WINE
Is it just me – or is it almost always a good time to wine?! It’s 5 o’clock somewhere, right? LOL I do enjoy a glass of wine (at appropriate times), and I have lots of wine-loving friends, as well. So when I saw the new My Favourite Things ‘Good Time To Wine’ stamp set and coordinating die – I was sold! The stamp set is actually all sentiments, that work perfectly with the wine glass die. The must-have add on is the Wine Glass Shaker Pouches. Using the die along with the Shaker Pouches lets you create fun, 3D wine glasses!
I just recently received the Good Time To Wine stamp set, dies and Shaker Pouches, so I decided that this would be the perfect card for this week’s Simon Says Stamp ‘Use Something New’ challenge! Be sure to check out the link to see their Design Team’s amazing projects.
EVERY SIP OF THE WAY!
How’s this for a card of support for a friend? There are so many great sentiments in the Good Time to Wine stamp set that the hardest part of using it is deciding which sentiment to use!
CARD FRONT DETAILS
Create the background focal piece by adding alcohol inks to Yupo Paper. I used a combination of Tim Holtz Adirondack Patina and Amethyst alcohol inks. Set that aside to dry. Die cut a scalloped circle from a panel of white cardstock, and attach the alcohol ink panel behind it. Die cut a scalloped circle frame from silver foil paper, and glue it onto the front of the panel.
Die cut the wine glass from silver foil paper. I die cut the background piece for the shaker in white cardstock, but you could cut it in acetate, silver, or whatever colour you wanted. Apply 3/8″ double sided tape to the back of the glass die cut, remove the backing, and then insert the Wine Glass Shaker Pouch. Fill with your favourite sequins or other filler. I used some of the pretty Starry Sky Mix and Clear Droplets from Pretty Pink Posh. Tape your backing piece onto the back of the wine glass, to keep your sequins inside.
Stamp your sentiment in Versamark ink onto the bottom of the panel. Cover with Silver Embossing Powder, and set with a Heat Tool. Now you can attach your die cut wine glass, and scatter some more sequins onto your card front! I used more of the sequins from the Starry Sky Mix, to keep the look the same as within the glass.
Attach your front panel to a card base, and you’re good to go! I kept my card base white, to allow the gorgeous alcohol inks and silver foil be the highlight of the card.
The Good Time to Wine stamp set is such fun to play with – I’ve already created another card! I’ll share that one with you a bit later. If you have some new stamps or products to play with, you should join the Simon Says Stamp Use Something New challenge as well! It closes this coming Monday, so hurry!
