Sip Sip Hooray Bundle
The Sip Sip Hooray Bundle includes the Sip Sip Hooray Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Sip & Celebrate Dies. I have used this bundle for my tutorial this month and created a card for an Avid crafter. Here is a little sneak peek.
The card featured on my blog today is different to the tutorial bundle project (they are exclusive to the tutorial)… today I have used the fabulous Basic Pattern Decorative Masks with the Sip Sip Hooray stamps, and totally different colours!
Basic Pattern Decorative Masks …
I squealed when I saw there were new masks in the brand new Holiday Catalogue. Yaay! I use my masks quite a bit and it is so exciting to have new designs.
The background for this card features Embossing Paste coloured with Ink Refills (Pretty Peacock, Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana), and then applied over the mask in an ombre fashion. The texture paste blends quite nicely where the colours overlap. I used Coastal Cabana as the base card …. imagine the different effects you could create simply by using a different coloured base card!!! In fact you don’t have to image, I have gone a little crazy with this technique, if you scroll to the end of the post.
I have featured the champagne glass from the Sip Sip Hooray stamps, keeping it nice and simple to contrast with the busy background piece.
Design Details …
- The glass is stamped in black ink and the “champagne” stamped with the co-ordinating stamp from the set. I have used Blushing Bride for the champagne, stamped off twice to achieve a delicate, yet flavoursome drop! The die set includes dies to cut out all the glasses.
- I elected to decorate my glass with some mint and a strawberry. While there are dies in the set to cut out both these images, I elected to fussy cut in this instance.
- The Sip Sip Hooray greeting is my favourite! It is two different stamps, so one is stamped in black on Mint Macaron card and the “Hooray” is white embossed onto Rococo Rose card to reinforce the pink in the champagne. I love the pop of contrast here.
- And lastly, a scattering of pinkish sequins completes the whole “bubbly” thing going on!
So then I tried some other options …. This card below is cased from the catalogue, but using the Embossing Paste background. The ink refill colours used here are Pretty Peacock, Bermuda Bay and Mint Macaron, on Pretty Peacock card. And I have used the martini glass instead of champagne. And still those Woven Threads sequins are just the perfect added touch.
And then, I got a little carried away with this whole coloured embossing paste thing!
