Cocktails Day


Before giving instructions for today’s card, I get to announce the winner of June’s drawing for The Gang’s All Meer Stamp Set…………Congratulations Rita! I will be mailing you the stamp set, along with the ribbon, around the middle of July.

Everyone who purchased a minimum of 50.00 from me will be receiving the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. Woo Hoo!


I think you’re going to love my July offers, which you can see below!


Now for today’s instructions:

Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″ to make your card base.

Use the largest Ornate Layers Die to cut a layer from regular weight, Whisper White Cardstock. Adhere to the card base.


Stamp three cocktail glasses from the Nothing’s Better Than Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock.

Stamp the “drink” on top of the glasses in three colors of ink: Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, and Flirty Flamingo.

Color the umbrellas and fruit with the same colors of Stampin’ Blends, as shown.


Cut the glasses with the Love You More Than Die, and place on Dimensionals. I probably went overboard, but they are nice and sturdy.


Now for making the word “cocktails” with the Love You More Than Die. Cut a 2 1/2″ X 1″ piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet, remove one side of the paper, and attach a 2 1/2″ X 1″ piece of Rainbow Glimmer Paper. Place the “cocktails” die on top of the Glimmer Paper, and run it through your die cutting machine. Turn it over, and run through a second time to insure a good cut. Free the word, remove the other side of paper, and stick to your card front.


To complete the sentiment, stamp the words “today is a” and “kind of day” in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. I used a retired Christmas Label Die for cutting, but you could use the Classic label Punch, or a different die.

You can see the entire stamp set in my Product List below, which gives you lots of fun words as options. Isn’t this a great set?


I was inspired by TGIF.
