Spilled Wine


Hi there!

Many of you know that I spent a good part of the holidays – and my birthday – with a nasty virus. I celebrated New Year’s Eve with 7-Up, Saltines, and Cup-O-Soup. It wasn’t pretty, but it did, somehow, result in the idea for this card, which perfectly captures how I was feeling about everything at the time.

To make this card:

1. Use the Splish Splash stencil to create the spilled wine on the bottom part of a landscaped panel.

2. Die cut the wine glass out of Mirror Ball card stock and die cut the “wine” that goes into the glass out of white card stock.

3. Ink-blend the “wine” to be the same color as the spilled wine you stenciled, then trim it to fit the wine glass on its side.

4. Arrange your wine glass and “wine” on your panel and adhere them with liquid glue. Trim the stem of the wine glass to fit your panel.

5. Mount the panel on a piece of black cardstock and then onto your card base.

6. Heat-emboss your sentiment in black and pop it up on your card front with foam adhesive.

7. Add some glittery gems to give the wine some bubbles and add to the “splash” effect.

I hope you like this card and that you had MUCH more fun ringing in the New Year than I did!

Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
