I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

that's Wine!

Hi to all,

Unfortunately, the weekend is winding down and I need to get some laundry done and pack up for a work trip this week. Tomorrow I head out to Palm Springs for the week. The project will actually be for the next three weeks, but I will be home on the weekends. The unfortunate part is that it will no doubt be around 116 degrees most days!

It's a new Paper Players Challenge today and Laurie has a super fun, humorous theme for us this week. I have a more than a few stamps that would qualify so I actually made a couple of cards. I'm going to do two separate blog posts so that I can enter both cards. Greedy right!

For this post, I've used a sentiment stamp from Funny Bones on the outside and on the inside, a sentiment stamp from Two-Lips as well as some wine themed dies from Taylored Expressions. The sketch is from the current Sunday Stamps.

I found the patterned paper in my misc stash and thought it looked kind of wine-ish. I coordinated the card base color to the patterned paper. To pull in the gold, I used a panel of gold metallic card stock for the bottom layer in the sketch and used gold EP on the sentiment.

Using my Misti Stamping Tool I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink. I cleaned off the ink, blocked out the bottom of the stamp with tape, then inked it again with VersaMark and stamped over the first impression and heat embossed it with gold EP. I die cut it using a Die-namics Stitched Square die. I cut two wine glasses, one from the gold card stock and one from retired SU Orchid Opulence ink to finish the front design.

Here's the inside using another humorous wine themed sentiment.

We do actually put our Rose and Sparkling wines in the bottom crisper in our refrigerator, LOL.

Thanks Laurie, for a fun theme challenge. I'm really looking forward to checking out the gallery this week. I'm sure we'll get many chuckles.

I hope you all have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by my blog,
