It's Happy Hour!

OK—speaking of Last Call!  It's been Happy Hour around my stamping studio this week as I created samples for my "Last Thursdays" class with this adorable Happy Hour set! 

Happy hour 126642L

This set has 17 festive ingredients to create drinks for all kinds of occasions and celebrations: birthdays, anniversaries, New Year's, retirement, girls night out, promotions, and more! 

I was mixin' it up like a bartender!  So, belly up to the bar and check out all of the colorful holiday drinks I was making…they're on the house!

Happy hour - ensemble

Seriously, too much fun!  Once you start serving 'em up, it's hard to stop!  I can't wait to see what concoctions my "Last Thursdays" class comes up with tomorrow night! 

Happy hour - merlot

CASEd from a card displayed at the Lansing Regionals (let me know if it's yours)

Holiday Merlot—I started with a simple, smooth Merlot garnished with a sprig of holly.  Each of my drinks is showcased on a partially-embossed Whisper White background with a sentiment spritzer.  The Raspberry Ripple Stitched Satin Ribbon adds a nice splash of flavor and matches the card base.  

Happy hour - merlot 2

The rubber stamps were colored with Basic Black, Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green Markers before stamping onto Whisper White card stock.  I die-cut the image with the Window Frame Framelits die and added paper-piercing with the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack template. 

Notice the cool background layer…it's two Decorative Label Punch shapes adhered together.  Doesn't it make an awesome frame for this small die-cut framelit?  (And, it's on sale today only!)

Happy hour - merlot 3

I used the Fancy Fan Texture Impressions Folder, because it coordinated with the pattern on the merlot. 

I was so buzzed from the first card, I had to pour a few more!  I hadn't yet quenched my creative thirst…

Happy hour - margarita

Frozen Margarita—I blended up a smooth Gumball Green margarita with a strawberry garnish.  The card base and ribbon were changed to Gumball Green and Decorative Label punches and sentiment are in Raspberry Ripple this time.  Background embossing is from Petals-A-Plenty Texture Impressions Folder.

Mmmm…let's take another sip…

Happy hour - strawberry margarita

Strawberry Frozen Margarita—I'm a fan of the strawberry version of this drink and I like a little squeeze of lime in mine.  Perfect Polka Dots Texture Impressions Folder add some subtle dimension.  By now, I was completely under the influence of alcoholic inspiration!

Happy hour - grasshopper

Grasshopper—I've never had one of these, but I've heard they are minty, so it was a perfect drink to go with a candy cane!  Do you like how I matched the Stripes Texture Impressions embossed background to the stripes on the candy cane?  I'll toast to that!

Happy hour - martini

Cranberry Martini—I don't know much about martinis, but I'm pretty sure that an olive doesn't go with cranberries…unless your stamping it too-cool style!  This jazzy drink needed a Chevron embossed texture behind it.  Straight up, neat!

Happy hour - raspberry dacquari

Raspberry Daiquari—Finally, I had to blend up a sweet treat for the daiquari glass!  This goblet was a little tall for the Window Frame Framelit, so I punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch and layered more punches in Gumball Green.  I had to freehand the paper-piercing, since it didn't have that inside shape on the Essentials Paper-Piercing template (it does have the coordinating outside shape piercing!). I used the Argyle Texture Impressions Folder here.

So, what did you think of my full bar?  Pretty intoxicating, don't you think?  Not too bad for bartending without a license! By now, I bet you're ready to take a swig of this refreshing Happy Hour set!  If you need a shot, order now from my Online Store

Well, all good things must come to an end…it's closing time, my friends!  Stay drunk on creative ideas, but stamp responsibly today! 


OK—I'm done now. That was fun! 

Remember to tip your waitresses on your way out!  Hey, can somebody call me a cab?
