CCMC208 – Happy Hour

I still have my Happy Hour stamp set sitting on my desk!  I made this up with the Color Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!   Make sure to check out what the rest of the Design Team did this week with the challenge!



Have you ever had a Dreamsicle Martini???  YUMMY!!!  So, this is in rememberance of the one I had a few months ago!  lol!



I love the Polka Dot Designer Paper in the new catty!  If it had STRIPES on the other side, I would have been in Designer Paper heaven…but the polka dots on one side and circles on the other side are cute anyway.  I started with a base of Real Red cardstock and layered on Whisper White.  I added a strip of Pumpkin Pie Polka Dot DSP, then a pennant made from Real Red circles DSP.  I stamped the greeting in the lower left corner with Basic Grey.


I made the focal element with the new Delicate Doilies Sizzlet Die out of Basic Gray.  I added a 1 3/4" circle of Whisper White, then punched out half of the 1 3/4" circle of Real Red for the "table" for the glass to sit on.  I stamped the martini glass in Basic Grey on Whisper White and cut it out, then stamped it again with Versamark on the Polka Dot DSP.  I embossed with Clear Embossing Powder to make the drink "shiny", then placed it in the glass.  I added an orange slice in the glass and one along the base of the glass.  It's all popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals!

Well, a dreamsicle martini sounds pretty good to me!  Especially if it's as good as it looks on your pretty card!

I keep seeing this set and think I may have to get it after all.  This card is just one more reason why I need it!  Love the layout and your focal point is just awesome!

Besides being utterly darling – I like the touch of adding a red tablecloth underneath the glass.   I wouldn't have thought of that.   The card design is perfect proportions, color choices with a little bit of vintage and a lot of whimsey.   Nicely done.
