Today is my DH's birthday, and I'm not fooling. He loves that his birthday is April Fools day because everyone always remembers his birthday.
I am so fortunate that my DH's most expensive hobby is all about wine--buying it, storing it, drinking it, learning about it, visiting it, etc. I get to benefit greatly from his hobby with absolutely no effort at all on my part. Plus, no matter how much I spend on stamps, he always tops me with his wine. So, he makes stamping guilt free for me. Win-win,
When I saw Uncorked by PTI a few months ago, I knew I needed to buy that set. What a great way to combine both our hobbies, right? So, I pulled out Uncorked and made a couple of cards--one of them will be his birthday card later today.
First up is the card I think I will be giving him tonight.
I am entering this card at Seize the Birthday where the theme is Anything Goes and Simon Says Wednesday Happy Birthday.
On my next card, I used a split panel treatment inspired by this card. I stamped my card front repeatedly with 2 of the images from Uncorked in a variety of WPlus9 inks. I sliced the strip containing the sentiment and then adhered that strip flat to the card base and popped the top and bottom pieces up with foam tape.
I am entering this card at AAA Cards #36 Easter Colors, Simon Says Stamp Monday Pastels, and Virginia's View #14 Layers and Dimension.
Last up is another card inspired again by (the great) Laura Bassen. I used the Uncorked dies and sponged distress inks on a piece of white card stock in the negative space.
I am linking this one up at The Challenge #28 and Simply Create Too #82 Anything Goes.
