Whiskey Business -# FMS460

If you follow my blog or Facebook page you will know that i am a HUGE fan of using sketches to design. Today’s card was made using a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I wanted to add details, but still keep it simple. I think the detail that makes this card is the wink of stella added to the decanter and glass. I just love how it adds a shine to everything it touches!!

The dimensions for this card are standard base (8.5″X5.5″, scored at 4.25″) then a layer of DSP ( 5-3/8″ X 4-1/8″). The banner is 3″ by 4.5″. To make the v at the bottom I marked aspot that was 1.5″ across and .75″ up the banner and then used snips to cut tot he point. The whiskey itself was created by highlighting with light Cinnamon Cider blends and then blending it with light Mango melody blends.

For a full list of supplies, see below.

Happy Stamping!

Painted Poppies

This week I will be spending a lot of time chatting with my Grade 2/3 class about Remembrance Day, planting our own Poppies in our school garden and we will be creating our own Poppy art in class. So I thought I’d spend my Stampin’ week focussing on Stampin’ Up!’s gorgeous Painted Poppies set. Today’s card is created using the Painted Poppies stamp set and a lot of fussy cutting (there are dies available- I just wanted a closer cut).I also heat embossed and then dry embossed the background.
