Congratulations!  Please email me at to confirm your address and claim your card.

The finished dimensions are 7" x  7" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Beautiful card that is wonderful for all those cocktail lovers. Love the frosting on the rim of the glass.
Congratulations Lyn on winning Wednesday's card.

Hi Sue. Great card, it's made me smile as it reminds me of a great card on Paul's fb group using this die but with a party girl topper positioned inside the cocktail glass, a great 18/21st or 'Hen Night' invitation but the collection is fun and very very versatile.
What a truly amazing card you've become owner of Lyn many congratulations to you, what a way to start the day ☺
Not sure if you had a quick glance of the closing ceremony of the winter Olympic games Sue, but the stadium had the shape similar to one of your hexagonal /octagonal frames but had a kind of weaving pattern to it when the lights shone on it from a bird's eye view, it bought to mind what a great addition to the weaving dies this would make, to have a large frame with the weaving effect. I'm the same with kitchen paper lol see a beautiful pattern and imagin an embossing folder !
Maybe therapy would help 😉 lol.
Sending love and hugs and hope your day is a great one whatever your plans or wherever you are xxx

What fun! Lots of optical foolery. Somewhere, someday, someone is going to lick that sugar rim and find it lacking flavor.

Cheers to all enjoying guilt-free idleness today.

Good Morning Sue

How absolutely hilarious. I am going to make a card with this die set today for my daughter in law's birthday later in the year and was only looking at this card yesterday for ideas.

Congratulations to Lyn

Good Morning Sue. What a lovely light hearted card this morning. Just makes me feel like a cocktail happy hour is on the great for the younger young ladies cards. Ohhhh and I know a few older ones as The use of the glitter around the rim is brilliant.
Just been to our local sorting office to collect my parcel I have been waiting for.... the post man brought it yesterday..... but unfortunateley we had to go to a funeral and we were out when he came. Now I can't wait to play with my new Classic Adorned Octogon Set. So I will leave you now... sending congratulations to Lynn on her winning the Wednesday Card..... and best wishes to every one.... stay in and keep warm on this bitter cold Saturday morning. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Tressa said...

Fun card. Good for any celebratory occasion.

I think I need what ever could be put into that glass when the snow melts and I can celebrate having heating on again. Needless to say my condensate pipe froze again last night. I should have made the anniversary card yesterday morning whilst I did have temporary heating...... that'll larn me! Oh well, they say it is going to warm up this coming week. Bet you aren't enjoying this weather Sue.

Sue, You Started Today’s Remarkable Card By Taking The Die That Creates The Top Part Of The Cocktail Glass
You Cut This Out Using Acetate (You Mentioned It’s Best Not To Use A Thick Acetate But A Thinner Acetate)
Once You Had Cut This Out You Showed Us In The Video Tutorial Where The Fold Marks Are On The Acetate Then You
Creased It Which Gives You The Shape Of The Upper Part of Your Cocktail Glass.
Next You Added A Line Of Cosmic Shimmer Specialists Dries Clear Acrylic Glue Across The Rim Of Your Acetate (Glass)

Of The Creased Sides Making Sure That Your Acetate Bows Slightly At The Front To Create A Look Of Glass
Sue, You Had Created A Coconut White Background Approx One Third At The Bottom You Attached Your Spotty Paper From
Your Stash, Then You Added A Strip Of Mounting Foam To The Back Of Your Cocktail Glass You Placed This Onto Your
Background, You Also Cut Out The Stupendous Umbrella/Straw (The Embossing Is So Detailed) You Cut The Umbrella Out
Of The Same Spotty Paper (It Looks Fabulous) You Trimmed The Ends Slightly Then Glued Them Just Behind
The Deep Raspberry Background In Your Cocktail Glass, You Then Added This To Your Main Card Using Mounting Foam

Loving this card and the stamps to go with it. So, so clever to be able to do the glass in 3D - unfortunately mine were requested flat because of postage. But the day will come.............

Thanks Pat for your comments re the heating. All fixed now thank goodness. Seems to be more efficient too, the radiators are hotter. Will be booking a service soon. X.

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

What a fun, happy card today that looks good enough to drink. There are so many occasions when this card could be used and would be sure to bring a smile to the recipients face.

Hope that everyone is staying safe and warm with snows that you have been having. Last night we had sustained winds of 67 mph and gusts up to 97 mph. It was so loud it was impossible to sleep and it felt like any minute the house was going to take off and fly. Thankfully it calmed down quite a bit this afternoon but there were lots of trees down, shutters and roof shingles lying around. The only thing you can say about the weather these days is that it is unpredictable.

Congratulations to Lynne on winning the card giveaway, it was such a beautiful card.

Have a wonderful day.


Marie P from Longridge said...

Such a beautiful card Sue and your video is superb.

Congratulations Lyn on your win. Isn't it a lovely feeling.
Hugs to all who need them.
