My Favorite Things October Release Countdown - Day 1

Hello and welcome to day 1 of the My Favorite Things October release countdown. All of the new products we've been sharing this week will be available tonight at 9pm EST!

For my card today I used the Christmas Cocktails mini stamp set, which is actually a free with purchase set. It has some really fun cocktail glass images and I couldn't wait to ink it up!


I wanted to make the martini glass the focus of the card, so I stamped it onto white card stock with black ink and added a bit of colour to it with some watercolour. I stamped the sentiment from an older stamp set called Hand Lettered Holiday above the glass - I love how it looks like it's coming out of the glass with the jewel bubbles that I added.

I added the panel to some silver sparkle card stock and some Steel Grey card stock and then I added the finished panel to a Sno Cone card base. For some added interest on the card base, I stamped the same martini glass with the same ink colour for a tone-on-tone look.

Thanks so much for joining me for day 1 of the countdown. I'll see you tonight for the release party.
