Three Cheers Again!

Hi Bloggers.

Just to let you know that I've ordered some more of the stamp sets from this set of shows so they should be in stock in my Amazon store soon. Will let you know when they arrive.

Another guy card today.

 For the background, I randomly stamped the Newsprint stamp (with it in my hand) using Black Soot Distress Ink. Then I did the same with the Bubbles Stamp using Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Adagio Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern and then inked around the edges with Black Soot using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the Beer Glass from the Creative Expressions Cheers Stamp Set 3 times using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut them out using Spellbinders Labels 28 and inked through the die with Chipped Sapphire.

I coloured a piece of Idea-ology Nostalgic Tissue Tape with Stonewashed Alcohol Ink and wrapped it around the background. I stamped the sentiment from the Cheers Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Matting Basics B and inked through the die with Chipped Sapphire.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Antique Silver Faux Screw Brads and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
