Wine With Friends

Sunday, January 17th, 2021

Happy Saturday! It’s Deb here, for the Design Team. Normally, Saturday is a great time to enjoy wine with friends; unfortunately, these days we can’t do that. *sad face* It seems that right now, practically everywhere in the world is on lockdown, so today’s card is for the friends we can’t visit. Yes – that is the reason behind why I chose today’s word prompt to be ‘friends’ for the Scrap ‘N Stamp Daily Challenge!

JOIN THE DAILY CHALLENGE

If you haven’t already joined the Daily Challenge, I hope that you’ll consider it! Each day there is a new word prompt, to use as a jumping off point for your project. Simply share your card/project in the Facebook Challenge Page HERE, and use the hashtag #SNSCHALLENGE.  At the end of the month, one lucky participant is randomly chosen as the WINNER of a $50 GIFT CARD to Scrap ‘N Stamp! That’s a lot of goodness you can get for yourself.

WINE WITH FRIENDS

I’ve combined some ‘old with new’ for this card; a new Lavinia stencil, with an older MFT Shaker die.  It’s been so long since I’ve made a shaker card, I really had to think about it! Especially because I discovered that I had run out of the Shaker inserts for this die.

I like the stenciled background, and how the sequins appear to be bubbles, floating out of the glass! I figure it’s been a while since I’ve shared a glass with friends, so we should make it champagne, aka sparkly wine!

CARD DETAILS

I decided to make a slimline card, just because I like using the new Picket Fence Studios Slim Line Die Cutting System.  First, cut 2 pieces of white cardstock with the inside layer die. On one of the pieces, apply Worn Lipstick Distress Ink through the Lavinia Stamp Pods stencil.  Next, use the MFT Wine Glass Shaker Die to die cut the glass shape from the stenciled paper. Die cut another glass from dark pink cardstock.  Create your shaker, using the Gina K.  Clear Quartz Solid sequins. Use foam tape to attach the top stenciled/die cut layer to the 2nd piece of white cardstock. Now, attach the card front to a dark pink card base.

Next, stamp the sentiment from the MFT Good Time to Wine stamp set. I wanted to layer the sentiment on 2 strips, so stamped the first part, then masked off the stamp to ink the 2nd half of the sentiment. Next, die cut the 2 sentiments, and attach them to the card front with foam tape or squares.

Finally, glue on some extra sequins, for the ‘bubbles’.

In the photo above, you can see the added dimension of the sequins, shaker and sentiment strips. The stencil is a great way to add a background & more depth, without adding a physical layer.

SUPPLIES

Don’t forget to create and share your project for today’s prompt of ‘friends’, and/or any other day! Hopefully, we’ll all be able to have wine with friends in person, soon. Until then, have fun creating!

THANKS FOR BEING THAT FRIEND!

Hello there! I’m super excited to be here, as a new member of the Scrap ‘N Stamp Design Team! My name is Deb, and I live here on the beautiful Canadian west coast – in Vancouver, in fact, which is where Scrap ‘N Stamp is located. I’m a WAHM of 2 grown boys (20 and 24) with my husband. I found stamping when carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists forced me to give up my floral business just over 7 years ago, and before that I gave up my ‘corporate’ job when our first son was born. Needless to say – I much prefer the creative world!

Today I have a quick & fun card to share with you, involving another one of my favourite things – wine! I think this card would be a great ‘Galentine’ card for your bestie, or just because they’re a great friend.

Thanks For Being That Friend!

I’m using the My Favorite Things Good Time to Wine stamp set, along with the matching Wine Glass Shaker & Frame dies. I also added extra fun, making it a shaker card by using the MFT Wine Glass Shaker Pouches!

To start, I sponged on some Picked Raspberry Distress Ink onto white cardstock. I used my Life Changing Blender Brushes from Picket Fence Studios – be sure to keep checking the store, because these are COMING SOON to Scrap ‘N Stamp!! (you’ll fall in love with these brushes – they really do live up to their name!).  After sponging, I dabbed some of the Picked Raspberry ink onto a clear block, and picked up some of the ink with a slightly wet water brush, and flicked some ink over the panel.

Next, I used my Big Shot with the MFT Wine Glass Shaker & Frame Dies to die cut 2 of the glasses from silver foil cardstock. I wanted my glasses to be clear, so I then cut 2 of the backing pieces for the shaker from acetate.

For the next step, I lined the back of the glass ‘bowl’ part with 1/8″ double sided tape, then removed the backing. I then insert the Wine Glass Shaker Pouch, 1 per glass, and then filled each one with some clear droplets form my stash. Then, I attached the acetate backing with more double sided tape, to hold them in place.

Thanks for Being That Friend!

In the photo above, you can see the fun dimension that the Wine Glass Shaker Pouches add to the card!

For the sentiment from the Good Time to Wine stamp set, I place a strip of vellum into my stamp platform. The sentiment is stamped first in Picked Raspberry Distress ink, and then again in Versamark ink. I then covered it with clear embossing powder, and set it with a heat tool. The heat embossing helps the sentiment stand out a bit more, on the vellum and over the glass stems.

To assemble the card, I used the double sided tape to attach the left glass directly to the sponged panel. The left glass was attached using foam tape, to give it dimension, so it looks like the glasses are clinking. Next, I added some more of the clear droplets above the glasses, to look like bubbles. I also added a few drops of Nuvo Crystal Glaze between the droplets, to look like smaller bubbles. The sentiment is attached with a small amount of liquid glue onto the stem of the glasses.

Finally, the front panel is attached to a panel of silver cardstock (to carry over the silver of the glasses) and then onto a card base of bright pink.

Thanks for Being That Friend!
