Bubble Over/Mixed Drink Swap card
I participated in a Masculine Card swap and wanted to use the Bubble Over and Mixed Drinks stamp sets. It's easy to combine the new with the old sets!
Very Vanilla Thick card base, 8.5 x 5.5 and scored at 5.25
Crushed Curry 4-1/8 x 5-3/8
True Gentleman DSP, 3.75 x 5
Very Vanilla 4-7/8 x 3.5
Wood Textures Designer Series Paper
scraps of Crushed Curry and Night of Navy
scrap of Copper Foil
I started by stamping the beer glass in Basic Black archival ink because I wanted to color the beer with my blender pen and ink from the tops of the ink pads. I used Crushed Curry ink to color
the beer in the glass. I used Wink of Stella on the foamy top. You could also use Memento Tuxedo Black to stamp the glass and color with your Blends.
FYI: Always stamp first so that if you have any "oops" you can fix without wasting the entire card.
I stamped the label for the bottle using Night of Navy on Whisper White and die cut the piece using the Bottles & Bubbles thinlit dies. I then sponged some Soft Suede around the edges to add aging.
While at the Big Shot, I die cut the bottle top out of copper foil.
Next, I die cut the bottle out of the Wood Textures DSP using the same dies. I thought the wood look was a bit more authentic to beer bottles.
I die cut the labels for the sentiment so that I could layer them. The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy ink.
Using the Bubble die, I cut it out to create the "drops" of beer going into the glass. If I had thought more about it, I might have die cut raindrops out of the crushed curry to use instead. I covered the dots (I just used 3 of them) with Wink of Stella.
I added the sentiment using Fast Fuse and the bottle top using Fine Tip Glue
