May Your Glass Be Half Full

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is continuing with the Half Full stamp set! When using this stamp set I tend to want to use Berry Burst or Fresh Fig colors, so I once again set out to challenge myself to use a color scheme that would not be typical and incorporate some items on the retirement list! I don’t know about you, but I have a TON of ribbon and Designer Series Paper that is either already retired or is on the new retirement list!

To make this card, I started with the card base in Tranquil Tide cardstock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

The base layer is from the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate, cut at 4 ¼” x 5 ½”:

The next layer is from the Wood Textures DSP Paper Stack, cut at 3” x 4 ¼”:

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the wine glassed image in Memento Ink, color in with a Stampin’ Blends Pen using So Saffron and Fresh Fig inks, and then cut out using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits:

I cut a piece of Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon long enough to go the length of the DSP and be able to adhere in the back. The sentiment is then adhered on top with dimensionals:

I adhered the acetate piece to the card base with Fast Fuse, only in the area that would be covered by the DSP, and then adhered the DSP on top:

The inside sentiment is from the Special Celebrations stamp set in Tranquil Tide ink on a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” Whisper White cardstock and from Timeless Textures, stamped the image in So Saffron and Fresh Fig inks, stamping off first:

Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
