CHALLENGE: Paper Smooches Guest Designer Search (Free Spirits)

 Created after Wine O'Clock with a glass of Rosé (or two...)!

I love this stamp and die set from Paper Smooches, Free Spirits.  I originally bought the set for the beverage images to make recipe cards for my bar (see below).  I recently purchased the Gift Tags 3 dies but they were still in my "new to use" bin.  The way the dies were attached in the package gave me the idea to do a die-cut inlay on a gift tag for a bottle of wine.  The smaller tag was the perfect size for one of the small sentiments from Free Spirits!

I used a basic tag die behind to make the gift tag a little larger and make the Paper Smooches tag on the patterned paper pop.  I think the ribbon I used is repurposed from something, I only had a short swatch of it but it was perfect for the look I wanted.  I just love the colors in this On Trend 2 6x6 paper pad by My Mind's Eye.

 Can you believe I had ONE bottle of unopened wine in the house and the label just happened to perfectly match the Seedless Preserves Distress Stain I used to color the wine. I love happy accidents. (The bottle of wine is actually a white, not a merlot, but the label is perfect!)

I went over the glass with a little Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.  A little washi tape and corner chopper gave the back tag a little more detail.

I originally bought the Free Spirits set to make recipe cards for this wall thingy behind my bar.  They were perfect for clipping on the wall unit for easy reference.

I printed card headings on a laser printer and foiled them through my Minc.  I then drew lines on with a Sharpie and added the glasses which I colored with Copics, die cut, and added Glossy Accents.  The little sentiments in the corner finished them off perfectly.

 I do know how to spell cosmopolitan, this one is actually named for my husband. At his 25 or 30th class reunions he'd had some beers by time I got there.  He said "honey! so-in-so likes cosmotolitans too!!"
