Happy Friday everyone!
I'm looking forward to a lovely weekend of gorgeous weather and a little gardening, although the little one has me running ragged all day Saturday, so it'll have to be just a lazy Sunday for me instead. After a hard day in the garden, I'm going to need something cold to drink! Like a beer perhaps!
All week long on the There She Goes blog, we've been sharing past projects of three older sets. Those sets are Aim For The Clouds, A Drink A Day and Life's A Beach. Because we're showing those older sets some love, they're also on sale this week, so if you like what you see, you might want to snap them up! Today the Trendsetters have whipped up a bunch of new cards for you using the sets!
Brilliant segway to introduce today's card don't you think?? I thought so! ;)
Earlier in the week I made a card using the Life's a Beach set. Today I used the beer glass from the A Drink A Day set to make this masculine card. I colored the beer in using SU's Morning Marigold and just a touch of Really Rust (and Going Gray on the clear glass part). Then I cut it out, sticking close to the linework and ran my Sharpy along the edges so that the white paper doesn't show. Then I covered the whole thing with Diamond Glaze to make it really look like a glass mug! Once that was dry, I popped it onto the panel cut with PTI's Fillable Frames #10 die, which I sponged with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. Then I used a Micron pen to draw a freehand border around the edge.
I borrowed this week's Card Positioning System's sketch #265 for my layout and used scrap pieces of Basic Grey's Pyrus and Max & Whiskers. My go-to 'black' cardstock is defintiely Bazzil Basics's Bitter Chocolate cardstock and Kraft Cardstock. I can't live without either!
Well, that's it from me! I hope you have a fabulous weekend, whatever it is you're doing!
