Cheers to You

I am happy that I made it through the week and am now enjoying a nice long weekend with my family. This is one of the cards we did last Wednesday night at my "a little bit of everything" class. We made a tri fold card, a fall card, a flower card and this masculine card. I find that we never have enough masculine cards and I really wanted to make a card with this stamp set, so here it is.

I had to do some creative masking to get the handle on the left side of the mug and of course using the Stamp-a-ma-Jig made the task much easier. I stamped the mugs on Whisper White Card Stock with Staz-on Black Ink, then coloured them in with More Mustard ink and a Blender Pen. I applied Versamark directly over the coloured image and embossed it with Crystal Clear Embossing Powder. I then punched them out with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch and mounted them onto Basic Gray 1 1/2" Circles. The Striped Paper comes from the Nouveau Chic Designer Series Paper and the Corners were detailed with a bit of paper piercing and then was mounted onto a Basic Gray Card. A strip of Sage Shadow was sponged with Basic Gray and then added to the front of the card, this was then followed by the punched circles which were mounted with Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish it all off I stamped the greeting in Basic Gray, punched it out with the Lg Oval Punch, sponged the edges with More Mustard and then mounted that onto a Basic Gray punched Scallop Oval and then onto the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals! Oh yeah, I did add a Silver Mini Library Clip as well just to step it up a little bit more...... and to cost me more in postage :)

Have a wonderful weekend!
