A color challenge!

Getting back in to the groove sometimes requires inspiration. Create with Connie and Mary are currently running a color challenge, so I decided to take the challenge!  I would have never put together  this color combo, so it was definitely a challenge for me! I think I did a pretty good job tackling it.

Happy Hour Stampin Up 1



This card features the Happy Hour stamp set. I used my Stampin' Write Markers to ink up each of the drinks, stamped them onto Whisper White card stock, and hand cut them out. *Tip: When inking up a stamp with markers, start with the lightest color first. For thin areas, such as the outline of the glass, use the thin side of the marker.

I popped my drinks up with Stampin' Dimensionals, and garnished them with pretties!
