Stampin' Up! Whiskey Business coloured with Stampin' Blends, plus a trick to give the liquid dimension

Hello stampers. Today I have a masculine card for you, featuring Whiskey Business stamp set from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Catalogue.

First, a little lockdown 2.o update. Hope you are staying safe and well. Today is 3 weeks into our scheduled 6 week  second lockdown in Melbourne. The spike in Covid-19 numbers has been scary  Much higher numbers than the first wave, and aged care homes are particularly vulnerable which is so sad to watch. We pray for those people and the healthcare workers, leaders, responders, plus those impacted health wise or economically. Otherwsie all we can do is play our part and be super careful and do all the right things. I feel this second lockdown is harder for some reasons, but we also seem to be managing better at home. We are trying to stay happy and positive and brighten others peoples days when we get the chance. Some days are harder than others, but I find distancing myself a bit from the media sensationalism, and taking more time for self care, has helped me this time. Oh and scrapbooking and cardmaking of course!

Here's my Whiskey Business card. Whiskey seems to be pretty popular among our male family and friends, so I needed this stamp set. My base card is Cinnamon Cider, and the front is embossed using the Tasteful Texture 3D embossing folder. The patterned paper is from the In Good Taste Designer Series paper pack. This pack has such great neutral textures.

I've coloured my image in Stampin' Blends. I have used Smoky Slate and a tiny bit of Seaside Spray on the decanter, Smoky Slate on the glass, and Cinnamon Cider with a bit of Daffodil Delight blended in for the whiskey. I've also used Daffodil Delight on the lemon twist. 

Tip: to get a realistic look of liquid with some dimension, use a Fine Tip Glue pen after the Stampin' Blends have dried. I learned this tip from the lovely Linda Bauwin on an Incentive Trip many years ago when she was demonstrating colouring wine in glasses.

To finish my card off, I have adhered the decanter and glass to a circle die cut from the Stitched Shapes dies. The glass is adhered with Dimensionals, as is the Stitched Shape and the DSP (I adhered the DSP to a layer of cardstock to give it some more weight). Finally I have added some Linen Thread, and an embossed greeting from Happiest of Birthdays stamp set.

Even though there are some great sentiments in this set, I wanted a birthday sentiment. This new Happiest of Birthdays from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue has been really popular.  It's certainly one I know I will be getting lots of use from.
