Hello there! Thank you for stopping by and welcome to another month with the One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop! Wasn't Mikaela's projects just gorgeous? I am so excited to see so many new projects with brand new 2020 - 2021 Annual Catalogue items!
I am equally excited to share with you one of the new stamp sets, Whiskey Business. My husbands drink of choice is Rye and Ginger (Ale), so as soon as I saw this set, I just knew I had to have it! I am so glad to see this type of set from Stampin' Up!. And it just so happens that we have a matching decanter and glasses to go with the set!
Isn't this set just amazing? It really can be used for all occasion cards! For my card specifically, I am thinking this would make a great Father's Day card, although my husband did offer his opinion on this one, so maybe that wont work so well. :)
Card Details and Measurements:
Whisper White Cardstock Base: 8.5" x 5.5", scored at 4-1/4"
Basic Black Cardstock: 5.5" x 3"
2020 - 2022 In Color Designer Series Paper in Cinnamon Cider: 5-1/4" x 2-3/4"
The 'rye' is coloured in using Cinnamon Cider and Bumblebee Ink using a Blender Pen. These were then cut out using Paper Snips and adhered to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Dies: Layering Circle Dies and Stitched Shape Framelit Dies
The sentiment is stamped in Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and it is adhered to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I used the Gold Trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and wrapped around the sentiment cutout three times.
I finished off the card with 2020–2022 In Color Enamel Dots in Cinnamon Cider.
Along with the card, I made a special Medallion to add to our decanter. I love decanters and the one we have is super pretty so I wanted something that not only would match the card, but one that would suit the decanter itself.
I ended up using smaller dies from the Layering Circles Die collection and add one of the new Gold Hoop Embellishments for a classier touch. It coordinates so nicely with the Gold Embossed sentiment.
Here are the full Medallion details:
Circle die cuts are from the Layering Circle Dies.
Gold Hoop is from the Gold Hoops Embellishments and it is adhered to the die cut circle using Mini Glue Dots.
The sentiment is stamped in Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and it is adhered to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots.
The 'rye' is coloured in using Cinnamon Cider and Bumblebee Ink using a Blender Pen. These were then cut out using Paper Snips and adhered to the Medallion with Stampin' Dimensionals.
The Ribbon and Gold Trim are from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack ad are adhered to the Medallion using Mini Glue Dots.
Since I wanted the Medallion to lay flat against the decanter (since the decanter slants inward a bit), I used 3 stacked Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of the Medallion to help it pop out. Note that the Dimensional sitting against the decanter still had the backing on it; I did not stick the Dimensional on the decanter itself.
I am so happy with how this turned out and the colours even match the Rye itself!
I really think that if you have anyone in your life who enjoys having a drink (or even a mocktail), then I would highly recommend this set. The set would even lend itself nicely to mimic lemonade, fruit juice, or any other drink.
