Friends and wine Unity hop.

Hello friends!

Hopefully by this stop, you've got a cup of wine in your hands,
and enjoying this inspirational hop :)
What better way to enjoy this holiday season, right?

You should be arriving from Shemaine's blog -

Lots of fun friends and wine releases today!
But before we get onto that -
I've made a few fun cards with the new Sentiment Kit - also released today!
All new{Be inspired} challenge is also starting up today,
so make sure that you come and join us this month!

So, here's the challenge inspiration photo and sketch:

Don't you just love the new color scheme?
Probably my fave so far!

So the rules for the challenge are - 
use the color combo and/or the sketch.
There's no other rules... 
except to use Unity stamps.
Makes sense, and easy enough?

Using that - I've made two quick cards today for the challenge!

Made each of the hearts into balloons.
I simply layered them, adhered foam on the foremost one, 
each with jute twine attached,
and tied them together with a red twine.

Simple but cute!

Next up is a washi tape card!
Since I love these colors so much, 
I was able to find enough to cover the whole lengthwise amount for the card base.

I adhered them at random lengths one beside another,
and then ran through the cutting machine to make heart cuts.

I backed the opening with a vellum and stamped the sentiment right on it.

The last up is the only new wine stamp release that I had a chance to make.
This one jumped at me and thought that it would be fun to make!
Let's get SIP FACED!

For this one, I stamped the wine image onto the white paper,  
cut out inside bottle portion of each of the bottle,
and backed it with transparency and various colored cardstock.
