Paper Smooches: I'm So Sorry

I was having the most fun playing with the set from Paper Smooches called Free Spirits (which, by the way, is a freebie with $60 purchase through September!)  It is full of fun glasses for wine and margaritas and other exotic drinks, along with cherries and ice cubes and umbrellas.  I had out neon inks and I was going for the margarita but nothing was quite working.  Then I saw two glasses stamped on my scratch sheet - one upright and one sideways - and the light bulb came on!

I'm So Sorry

You'll see right away that I got away from the neon margaritas.  I'm still going to play with that idea - but I was slightly handicapped in this card in that the only empty glass that I could spill was the wine glass so this card went a whole different color direction.

I'm submitting this to Simon Says Anything Goes.

I think you went in a great direction with the spilled wine glass and tumbling sequins. Perfect for a 'sorry' card! Clever you! You've been an amazing GD over a PS - hope you'll continue playing with PS, because you and their stamps are such an awesome match!!

I just adore the visions you have for using stamps! What a fun way to send regrets and keep things light-hearted! I'm loving the spilled sequins and glass half-filled! Genius!

Doris said...

Ditto on the previous comment! What a cute card!

Bonnie said...

I love how scratch pad art works sometimes! What a wonderful idea! Every time I see your sequins, I think I need to try that. Somehow they never look quite that good.

Saw this on the PS blog and it blew me away...awesome use of sequins!

Marjolein said...

Just when I think I know how to use sequins on my own cards you come up with another great idea!!
So now I HAVE to get me some sequins in different sizes too, ha, ha.
Great idea!! Love it.
