The Whiskey Business stamp set from Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue is a wonderful mix of fun and serious all at the same time. It’s a great theme for anyone who loves drinks that come with ice in a lowball tumbler – or anyone who can appreciate this as a nostalgic nod to ye-old-timey symbolism.
The styling in this set is perfect and I couldn’t get away from needing to craft with rich colours and bold patterns. The DSP is from the World of Good pack – which has rich brass tones running through it and is perfectly moody for a whiskey card!
The whiskey bottle and glass were stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in black. The colouring is Bumblebee ink which is a vibrant but deep yellow tone that looks like a good whiskey! I’m not a whiskey drinker personally, but a little internet search tells me that it comes in many colours from clear through to yellow, amber and brown tones. You could have some fun with colouring the variations!
The layout for this card was CASEd from Rochelle Blok. You can see her original card here. Rochelle repetitively stamped along the back panel which I loved – but particularly the way it all lined up down the left and created white space on the right. I’ve used the ‘cheers to you’ stamp in Misty Moonlight – lined up on my Stamparatus. The spacing of this stamp didn’t work for hinge stamping, so instead I’ve used the Grid Paper you can buy for your Stamparatus and while keeping the stamp in place on the Stamparatus, I’ve moved the cardstock up every 1/2″ until I’ve stamped all the way up the page.
I just love the sentiments in this stamp set – especially this one! There really is something special about getting an ‘old-fashioned’ birthday card in the mail.
I hope you have a great weekend!
