Cheers!

I've been super busy and unfortunately have not had much time to stamp. I've been busy re-organizing my craft space...what a job! Since I've been bringing home a lot of stamping/crafting supplies that had belonged to my mother-in-law, I had to do something to make room...since my rubber room was already jam-packed! I made this card for a friend of mine earlier this month, so I thought I'd share...even tho it's not entirely SU!


I used a cute margarita dollar stamp that I've had forever...I really need to get the Cheers to You stamp set. After watercoloring the image I covered the glass in Crystal Effects. The Rose Red scalloped mat was created with the Scallop Square punch. I punched 3 and pieced them together - a fun trick to create any sized scallop mat that you want.

Can you see the polka-dot embossed background? That was done using the Big Shot and some embossing plates given to me by my friend. (thanks Rach!) Since then, I've ordered the proper pads to use in the Big Shot for embossing, so I think it will turn out even better using the right sandwich. Can't wait to try it!

Have a great day!
