You know those weird calendar dates that no one really knows? Well Saturday was Wine Day and the theme for this week’s Crazy 4 Challenges! I know right?!! LOL! So I have a very few cocktail stamps but only one teeny little wine stamp. Being so small and not having any accompanying sentiments, it would be very tricky to base a card on it. So I searched my stash for something to use. I thought some collage sheets with 1950’s domestic graphics and memes might have some snarky wine comments but nope. I finally looked through my wedding stuff and ta da!!
I found a sheet of stickers from the dollar store! It was seriously old and the ribbon on the glasses and dress had aged badly. So I removed them and added some of my own embellies. The hearts were cut with Hero Arts nested circle dies from some shimmery vellum. I added them to help ground the layered stickers. The paper is by My Mind’s Eye, one of my favourites of all time. I could use up an entire pack of paper with just this one pattern! The gold foiling is awesome. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp on ivory cardstock with Wow gold sparkle embossing powder. Last I added the bow which is pink and champagne (how perfect right?) silk from May Arts. So I suppose I need to get some wine stamps and dies. I do have a few sets on my wish list but I have to save up some more!
