Cheers to You

Here's a small and sweet stamp set from the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalogue ... it's called "Cheers to You", and I just like it for no reason other than it's fun to colour in *g*.

This is the prototype of a birthday card I sent to my friend Gina recently (hey Gina!). I wanted something super bright to suit the cheerful images, and managed that quite well, don't you think?

As well as the three drinks shown here, the set also contains a beer mug and a martini, and the phrase "Cheers to You" (which you can just see
stamped along the top of the card).

The drinks were coloured using my Stampin' Up! Classic Ink pads as "paint palettes" - if you squeeze the lids while the pad is shut, then open it up there is enough ink transferred to the underside of the lid to pick up with an Aqua Painter for your colouring. Kind of like having a very neat, non-messy set of watercolours.

Did you know that the Aqua Painters are now only $19.95 for a set of two? Bargain price!
