This card combines several stamp sets - Cheers To You (111037), Sanded (109294) and Seeing Spots (107007).

I used a VersaMark inkpad to stamp the background pattern on the Basic Black panel, which you can just about see in the photo, but which catches the light in real life.
Using marker pens and a blender pen, I coloured in the tankard of beer and added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to look like condensation on the side of the glass.
The image was then mounted onto a piece of Basic Black card cut out using the Round Tab Punch (109974). The Perfect Plum panel has a pricked pattern in the corners but, again, you can't see it very clearly in the photo.

This would be a good card for beer drinkers, but there are also some lovely stamps of cocktail glasses, making it a good set for celebrations of all kinds!

Stamps: Cheers To You, Sanded & Seeing Spots
Paper: Basic Black, Perfect Plum & Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Perfect Plum, VersaMark & More Mustard & Bordering Blue Marker Pens
Accessories: Crafter's Toolkit, Snail Adhesive, Scallop, Round Tab, 1 3/8” & 1/8” Circle Punches, Black Gingham Ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Blender Pen & Dimensionals

This card combines two stamp sets, Polka Dots And Paisley (108549) and Seeing Spots (107007).

I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the word ‘happy’ correctly positioned. The paisley accents and the background circles were made by inking the parts of the stamps that I wanted, using matching Marker Pens. You just 'huff' on the stamp after using the markers and then stamp as usual. The daisy accent was stamped, punched out and lifted on dimensionals.

I used the Paper Piercing Template, Pad and Tool from the Crafter's Tool Kit (110089) to mark the places to punch the holes along the Lavender Lace card stock.

Stamps: Polka Dots And Paisley & Seeing Spots
Paper: Mellow Moss, Whisper White, Blush Blossom & Lavender Lace
Ink: Mellow Moss, Blush Blossom Inkpad & Marker & Lavender Lace Inkpad & Marker
Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Snail Adhesive, Crafter’s Tool Kit, 1/8” & 1” Circle Punches & Dimensionals
