Stampin’ Up Half Full Floating Card for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop


Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop. If you have started with me or come from  Jaimie Babarcay’s gorgeous project, welcome. The second Tuesday of every month the team does a blog hop with a different theme each month.  This months Theme is ‘CELEBRATE’. We can interpret this any way we want.  We have a group of amazing stampers, so be sure to hop around to see all the beautiful projects everyone has made.

Here’s mine for today’s blog hop.  Take a look.

I started with a Merry Merlot card base.  I cut the front leaving 2 1/2″ from the center score line.  I then cut the remaining piece to 1 1/2″.  I stamped the top with the Cheer sentiment from Merry Christmas To All stamp set in Versamark Ink and sprinkled it immediately with my Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the Holiday out from the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies using my Big Shot from a piece of Copper Foil Sheet and adhered it above the Cheer using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The Merry Christmas To All Bundle is available at a 10% discount only until January 2, 2019.  After that the stamp set and Thinlits Dies will be available separately at the non-discounted price.  If you were thinking about getting this set, now would be the perfect time when you can save an extra 10%.

I stamped the set of wine glasses from the Half Full stamp set in Stazon Ink on a small piece of Window Sheet.  I colored the wine glasses in using my Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I adhered the Window Sheet to the inside of the top section of the card base  using Snail.   I then adhered the smaller piece of the card front to the bottom section of the Window Sheet, again using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of 5/8″ Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon around the bottom section and tied a knot and to hold it in place I added a Glue Dot under the knot.

On a small piece of Shimmery White cardstock, I stamped the wine bottle from the Half Full stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the bottle and the cap in using my Aqua Painter and So Saffron and Soft Suede Inks.  I adhered the bottle to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals connecting the top and bottom of the card base.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the top and bottom.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiments from the Half Full stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink.  I made sure that I stamped above and below the Window Sheet so that it didn’t show through where the wine glasses were.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the wine bottle and wine glasses from the Half Full stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope and the wine glasses on the envelope flap.
