Half Full

HalfFull1.0817In my last post I introduced you to the new 2017 Holiday Catalog and shared one of my favorite suites with you.  It got me thinking as to my favorite stamp sets.  One of the very first stamp sets that I absolutely had to have was the Half Full stamp set.  It’s so fun and of course, I love wine.  🙂

The Half Full stamp set is one of the stamp sets that was inspired by one of Stampin’ Up!’s million dollar sales achievers.  Yes, you read that correctly…million dollar sales achievers.  It’s crazy but to date there are actually 17 of these achievers!  Wow!  These are people who have achieved $1,000,000 in sales during their careers.  Can I just say WOW again?  Anyway, this stamp set was inspired by Linda Bauwin and I love it!

I designed this birthday card for my sisters.  Yes, they both got the same card but they loved it.  One of my sisters actually wants me to make some for her.  🙂

HalfFull2.0817I’ve started to do more on the inside of my cards.  The inside needs to be decorated as should the envelope if possible, right?

One of my favorite parts of the card, which you can’t really see from the picture is that the wine in the glass as well as the bunch of grapes are shiny to help them stand out as the focal point.  How did I do that you asked?  No….I didn’t emboss them.  I “colored” them with my Fine-Tip Glue Pen!

I call it “coloring” only because you go over the entire image with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen as if you were coloring.  It really makes a difference on the card and makes the image pop.  I designed a Christmas card using this stamp set and technique for I swap I’m participating in.  I’ll be sure to share that with you soon.

Cheers to all of those Million Dollar Achievers and cheers to you!  Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
