I am very excited to be guesting on the Paper Smooches Blog in December! Honored to have a project featured on the blog each Wednesday this month. Today this is what I've created using the new Wine Dies Wise Dies (that was fun to say!) and the coordinating stamp set, Wine Sampler.
I had this idea to make one of those cute Santa wineglasses as soon as I saw these dies. I cut the wine glass from three colors of cardstock... a red, a black and a white. I used the white as my base. Then I cut the red one.. a little off the top and a little before the stem. Then I adhered that piece to the glass and also cut the remaining piece where the stem started and attached that to the stem. I used the black one just to cut the strip for the belt. I suppose I could have just put a strip across and trimmed it, but this worked too. Then I added some white Nuvo drops as my fluff for his suit. I added some white stripes to the stem using my white gelly roll pen, drew in some buttons with a black pen and added the belt buckle using some metallic paper. For the wine bottle I cut one out of green vellum and one out of the red. I trimmed the red on all sides and fit it behind the green for the wine. Then I added the label that I cut from the Doodlebug paper pad I used for the rest of the card. And can't forget that cute cork! I just happened to recently by some thin adhesive backed cork, so it was fun to use it for an actual cork!...lol!
When it came time to add the sentiment, it turned out the scarf pieces from the Snowman Card Dies were perfect! I added some holly using the Holly Dies and some pretty sparkly red gems. The sentiment is from the Wine Sampler stamp set. Cute right!
So be sure to play along with the December challenge over at Paper Smooches! Winter is your inspiration!
And I'm also playing along with the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #435 that runs for a couple more days:
