Are you familiar with the Brutus Monroe Monthly Stamp Club? Each month there is a special 2x3 stamp that is designed by Christopher and only available to the stamp club participants! It's a great deal, go check it out!
For December's stamp club, the stamp is this fun image of a bottle and glass. It's perfect for New Year's cards and projects, but I think it fits perfectly with any kind of celebration card as well! I made a little "Celebrate" card using this stamp to share with you today.
The first thing I did was add a very light background to my card using the Polka Mixed Media Stencil. I thought it looked like bubbles and it fit with the theme perfectly!
After my background stenciling was finished, I cut a big circle out of some black and white chevron vellum paper and placed it off center. I also layered a paper doily behind it. Then, I took several different washi tapes that I have in my stash. I wanted to get some gold and glitz into this card, since I was going with the celebration theme. The gold glittery washi tape I die cut using a scalloped border die from Lawn Fawn.
Next, I went ahead and stamped out the little bottle and glass from the December Stamp Club stamp. I colored the label on the bottle very lightly with my pink Tombow colored pencil, but I mostly left the stamps uncolored. I did want lots of sparkle, though, so I added some Stickles to the liquid inside the bottle and the glass.
I then adhered the bottle down to the card. Over the bottle I placed the sentiment, "celebrate" on foam adhesive to pop it up, and then I placed the glass over that.
To really finish off the card and add some more sparkle (because you can never have enough, right?), I added some tiny bits of iridescent glitter around the stamped image. I thought maybe it would look like bubbles floating out of the glass.
Overall, I think this card kind of ended up having a girly feel with the bits of pink and the little paper doily. It would be a perfect card for a bridal shower or bachelorette party! I love how versatile the stamp is this month. You can definitely use it for New Year's but it has other great uses all year long!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Hope you enjoyed the card!
Until next time,
