Well Read with Wine!


My Oh My!!!! I am SO tickled with myself!!!! :)
Just look at this beauty!!!! I used my BRAND NEW MFT Well Read WTG, it was the VIP stamp set this month and gets released tomorrow night...
I stamped her on a MFT Perfect Paper Panel. I colored her and different finishing ideas in my head while coloring, so I proceeded to use my Yard Sale Treasure, my SU Piercing pad and template and carefully punched and turned and punched and turned the template to create a nailhead couch... now, is that cute or what... so I added some shading for under the couch, was tempted to add some sparkly fluff for those crafters of us that have "sparkly" dust bunnies but I resisted... :) SO I decide, looks good on its own and proceeded to run it through my Cuttlebug using a nestie... Now, these brads are apparently a BIT thicker than the nestie and there was a moment of UH OH! but, NOPE!!! I dont have to buy ANOTHER CB... it didn't break and now those baby brads look like hammered nail heads! LOL Its all good....
OK, so we all know that WTG LOVES her wine and chocolate so I stamped a couple images from Meet Me at the Cafe and Time for the Bubbly stamp sets... color, cut, glaze and glitter...mount on card.
I stamped the sentiment on to a piece of Perfect Paper Panels and dienamic'ed it out. Then dienamic'ed 2 more pieces using SU! Red from 2 years ago...not purely pom but the other yummy red one... anyway... punched 2 holes more baby braddies... then added the wine bottle to the top. Do you see the wine is sloshing to the side... is that TOTALLY COOL OR WHAT???? LOL
I used some DP I found today in my stash while organizing... like Christmas when I clean... and used some MFT Ribbon and the new dienamic chain border over the top of the ribbon in more of the SU! Red stuff... added 3 crystal Bling Adornments from MFT and viola.... The image and sentiment are all mounted onto the card using Jody's FABULOUS POP DOTS!!!! Aint nuttin better I'm here to tell ya!!!!
OK, I am SO happy about this card, I must rustle up some visitors to come to my blog and check it out!!!! :) Thanks for coming over when asked!!!! **wink wink**
