Some Fun New Stamps

Cindy, the owner of Stamping Scrapping now has her own line of stamps. The fist 4 sets to be released feature different kinds of drinks like coffee, tea, margaritas, and martinis to name a few. Margaritas and coffee just happen to be 2 of my favorite things. The design team has been given a preview set work with and design a few projects. These are 2 I have come up with so far. This first one is a gate fold card featuring the tea pot found on one of the sets. I stamped the teapot with another background stamp I had to give it a pattern. I also added a Kaiser Craft pearl to the top for some bling. The sentiment, is from the same stamp set. I love how all the sets have sentiments that go along with what type of drinks are in the set. I mounted the teapot on some label nestabilities and added a flower for a finishing touch. This next one is a lot of fun. It uses the margarita glass found on one of the sets.I colored the margarita with a lime green copic to give ita more authentic appearance. The lime is from another of Cindy's sets. The cool thing is, they are designed to work with each other, so you can mix and match them to create all kind of cool things. Now, in my opinion, a margarita just isn't a margarita without salt on the rim. Sometimes you gotta have a little salt and since it's not acceptable to lick it off the table, the side of a margarita glass is the perfect solution. Here is a close up of the salted rim and the lime. I used frosted lace stickles for the salt and I think it looks pretty realistic. I used some liquid glass on the lime to make it seem wet. The other cool things about these stamps sets is that Cindy has card scents that coordinate with them perfectly so your cards can smell as great as they look. For a better look at the four sets, click here I will have more projects soon I haven't' even started with the coffee sets yet.
