Paper Smooches: You Had Me at Merlot!

This is my second post today!

From the moment that I saw this stamp set, I knew exactly what I wanted to do!  With the fun sentiment - "you had me at merlot" - I had to create a little romance between the wine bottle and the goblet!!

PS Had Me at Merlot

The set is called Free Spirits and you can get it for free during September with a $60 purchase!  

I am having great fun this month as guest designer for Paper Smooches.  I have two more Wednesdays to go - you'll see another Free Spirits card - and one more romantic, fairy-tale card with Royal Cuteness.

I was inspired by the sketch at Paper Smooches SPARKS.  I had the little love scene created and the word bubble.  Then I saw how closely it worked with the current sketch - and it inspired me to add the little "XO" embossing!


  • Stamps: Paper Smooches Free Spirits, Shadows (the oval)
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Rich Razzleberry
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Rich Razzleberry, Smoky Slate, Papertrey Ink Soft Stone

This is so awesome! I can actually "see" the love between the bottle and the glass! And the x's and o's are a perfect finishing touch!

Came to thank you for your sweet comment, Kim, and...of course...got sidetracked by all your gorgeous creations! Noticed in one post you mentioned your youngest and his first marching competition...I'm wondering if that's high school...my oldest in the thick of that right now--tenor sax;)
