It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere

Good Sunday morning all! How about this for a cheeky card! LOL  I started with a piece of coconut white card and used the Retail Therapy stamp set to stamp the small cocktail glasses all over the background.  I sprayed it with spray glue and added a layer of Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz.  I wrapped a piece of striped grosgrain ribbon around the card and taped the ends to the back.  I stamped a piece of coconut white card with the sentiment and cut it out with a double Stitched Rectangle die.  I added a black mat to it.  I cut the Cosmopolitan die out of white card and used some Tumbled Glass on the stem.  I cut a piece of pale pink card and glued it atop the glass.  Next I cut the outer wraparound piece out of acetate.  I folded it and wrapped it around the glass, taping the ends to the back.  I added some glue around the rim and sugared it with Iced Snow.  I mounted it on to the sentiment piece with foam and added a plastic cocktail mermaid (from my stash).  I added the straw and umbrella inked with Spun Sugar and cut the cherry and sword and coloured them and glued them to the base of the glass.  White and black mats were added to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x 8 1/2" in size.

I still have several unclaimed dies.  Please don't forget to scroll down to see if your name is on the winning die list!   All for now, Sue x

Hmmmm it's just turned 6am here in the UK and the party has started early at Particraft towers lol so you enjoy a different kind of breakfast other than toast and orange curd, whatever floats ya boat Sue live and let live that's what I say lol. A real fun Sunday sample and I love how you've added the mermaid I thought they were tea total ? The whole set of the cocktail time dies are a great idea and can be used for many an occasion, I've not invested in this set but should I ever get a request or an order where I think they would be perfect I will certainly go but them. Pressed Shirt received yesterday so time to order the enthusiasm to go with it. Looking forward to watching Julia work her magic with your wedding dies later today.
Have a fun Sunday xxx

Pauline Austen said...

Morning Sue, as I will be visiting my sister today and staying overnight, I think that we'll be sharing one or two (or maybe more) cocktails so this is a really appropriate card for me today.
Like the background and the little mermaid. She reminds me of those little jelly sweets which we used to buy as kids.......eons ago!!
It is an easy card to make and suitable for many occasions and ages.
Enjoy your Sunday everyone. Hugs xx Pauline

Good Morning Sue. A lovely refreshing start to the day. It's a gorgeous sample card. These kind of cards are ideal for my beautiful nieces..... they would love to receive something like this.... and in a couple of months time most of our family will be doing exactly this when one of them graduates from university. This could be her celebratory card also. Thankyou Sue. Sending best wishes to everyone on this lovely sunny morning. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Hello Sue, what a great card to send to someone for a celebration or to use as a party invite. Love the fun element of the mermaid. Have a great day everyone. Bx

Donita Naylor said...

My favorite part is the little umbrella. Also, the cherry and sword look so realistic. I caught myself wondering how you got the sword through the cherry, but, duh, you just put the sword behind the cherry.

Enjoy your Sunday.

Best,
Donita

Hi Sue,

beautiful card and the background is great as well.
At first view I thought you made the mermaid out of fusible film and melted embossing powder in a mould.

Hi Sue, a great fun card and I am sure there will be plenty of people raising a glass to you for creating it. Love all the little extra elements and the novel idea of adding a mermaid let alone knowing that you had one in your stash! Looking forward to seeing what Julia does with your wedding dies.

Hi Sue what a great card it's quite sexy in a way and cheeky. I love the mermaid in the glass and the clever background and of course that luscious cherry. In fact I like it when you do clean and simple cards they seem more achievable to me.

Gorgeous card Sue, very pretty and pink is my favourite colour!!!!
Your clean and simple cards are just amazing and really inspire me to have a go at making a card like this.
