Fast Friday - Week 4

This week I have quite a different card which I am entering into the latest challenges on Simply Less is More and CAS on Sunday where the current theme for both of them is Masculine cards. One of the principles of challenges (the clue is in the word itself - LOL!) is to push yourself outside of your comfort zone and I do find masculine cards difficult (you only have to look at the projects on this blog to see there aren't that many)! You may wonder which Stampin' Up! set the wine bottle comes from - well actually none of them. This is a stamp that I created using the Undefined Stamp Carving Kit. When I attended Stampin' Up's European Convention last November I was given (along with all demonstrators) a sample kit to have a play with and the wine bottle is what I came up with in a short space of time (another challenge!). Anyone that knows me will be familiar with the fact that I attend a wine tasting class so will not be surprised by my choice of design! The image is a bit rustic but hopefully it adds to the "charm" (and after all it was my first attempt at using Undefined)!

To make this project you will need:

Cardstock/Paper: Whisper White  Stamps: Bring on the Cake (greeting), Teeny Tiny Sentiments (the word 'happy'), Undefined  Ink: Black Stazon, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Basic Black marker  Tools/Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Undefined Stamp Carving Kit

You can order from my online shop 24/7 or if you prefer contact me directly. Don't forget you can choose a free product from the Sale-a-Bration promotion for every £45 (before P&P) that you spend on catalogue items until 31 March 2014.

If you are wondering how I got the bottles to line up so neatly I used a pencil and ruler to draw a feint line on my card base and then used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to ensure they were accurately placed and lined up. Incidentally, the creation of the stamp was not included in the 10 minute project time limit as I had already made this previously at Convention.

So how will you be starting your weekend? I'll be at wine tasting - santé!

A la prochaine! Amitiés!
