Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

This week the challenge is

Anything But A Card 

We are showcasing My Favorite Things Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge.
As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.

As soon as I started developing this tag idea in my head, I knew I wanted the glasses to be transparent.
I started out by cutting the Wine tag die in Kraft card stock, both by MFT.  I cut this out twice so I’d have a front and a back panel.  I positioned the wine glasses from the Wine Service die set where I wanted them then taping them in place, I cut both layers of the wine tag at once so that my glasses would be lined up perfectly on both layers.

I didn’t decide until after I cut the glasses that I wanted a layer of Paver Red card stock (MFT) as the top layer so I had to get a little creative in order to line the glasses up just right.  Luckily I still had the Post It tape holding both glasses together so I just lightly traced where I wanted them on the Paver Red layer and then crossed my fingers as I ran it through my Big Shot.  I actually didn’t do too bad!!  The maroon card stock was slightly crooked, but not enough to make me re-cut it.  I used one of the Stitched Border dies by Lawn Fawn to run across the top and bottom for some detail and then glued the Paver Red layer in place.

Then I moved on to making my shaker window.  I used my Fuse tool, which I haven’t used in quite some time but I knew it was perfect for this project.
I made my shaker pockets and after filling them with gold micro beads (seed beads are a close comparison), I sandwhiched it in between the two kraft layers.

IMG_4231-copyI stamped a sentiment from the Uncorked stamp set in Merlot ink by SSS, then cut the Cheers die out with some gold glitter card stock.  I thought the Cheers needed some dimension so I used the leftover kraft card stock and cut out two additional layers and glued them all together.

Check out my process video below!  Scroll down for a list of all the products that I used.

So now it’s YOUR turn, Happy Crafting!!
