Half Full

September 28, 2017

I gave in an bought the Half Full stamp set from the current Holiday Catalogue.  Those of you who know me, know that I do enjoy the odd glass of wine!  I thought this set would be a fun one to use when making cards for my friends.  One of my friends recently celebrated her birthday and I made my first card using this set for her.  I started by adding a piece of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper across the bottom of Very Vanilla card.  I stamped the greeting from the Half Full stamp set onto the top right hand corner using Early Espresso ink.  I wrapped the top of the Designer Series paper with Berry Burst  5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding and tied a knot.  The panel is attached to scored and folded thick Very Vanilla card.  I stamped the wine glass from the Half Full stamp st onto Very Vanilla card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the “wine” using an Aqua Painter and Berry Burst ink.  I coloured the rest of the glass using Clear Wink of Stella and then added a wash of the Clear Wink of Stella to the “wine”.  I cut the image using one of the ovals from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and attached it to a Early Espresso scalloped oval cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  I attached the image panel to the card front using dimensionals.

I kept the inside of the card very simple and added “happy birthday” from the Butterfly Basics stamp set using Early Espresso ink.

I think this is going to be such a fun stamp set to create with.  What do you think?  Is this stamp set going to be added to your wish list?

Bye for now,
