It's Sangria O'clock Somewhere!

Hey everyone, Britney here! I am so excited to be on the Pawsome Stamps blog today featuring the Sangria Time stamp set. I was inspired by this month’s color challenge and I’m so glad I was! I don’t think I would have put these colors together on my own and I love the combo!

I always like to start with my background first and I build up from there. This is a mini slimline card. I cut some background panels with my paper trimmer of solid cardstock and one plain white cardstock.  I inked on some yellow going darker on the ends and lighter in the middle. I also splatter some of that ink on the background for additional interest. I embossed a sentiment on a scrap of the background cardstock. 

Stamping an image and sentiment on the inside finishes the card off nicely. It is easier to stamp an image and/or sentiment on the inside of the card before adhering the card panel to the base. The bulk of the foam tape can make it difficult to get a good impression using a Misti Stamping tool. I stamped the inside of the card with an image from the stamp set and a sentiment from the Sangria Time and Macarons stamp sets.

I used the Misti Stamping Tool and a Copic-friendly ink to stamp images onto a piece of smooth, white cardstock. Use your favorite color medium to color in the images. I prefer Copics usually. You can fussy cut the images or use the coordinating dies. I laid out my images to get perfect placement and popped some up using foam tape. I finished off my images using white gel pen to add some accents.

I love adding a lot of final details to a card to give it a little something extra. I added Nuvo Drops in White Blizzard to the centers of the flowers and Glossy Accents to the entire glass. I wanted it to really look like glass. I hope you enjoyed today's card. Have a wonderful day and make sure to check out all the goodies in the Pawsome Stamps shop
