Nothing's Better Than...
Sometimes a stamp set comes along that just calls to me. When I was paging through the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog for the first time this spring, this one called to me. It's called Nothing's Better Than, and when you see it, you'll know why:
Of course, as long as I was purchasing the stamp set, I would definitely want the dies to go with it...so I ordered the bundle. Kind of reminds me of the book If you Give a Mouse a Cookie. If I want this, I'll definitely want that. When I received the bundle, I set it aside, trying to dream of things I could make with it. Well, you know how that goes. If you try to dream something, it's certainly not going to just happen. So I had to wait for it to just come to me. Finally, it did. This was my first attempt at using this bundle, and I immediately fell in love!
Chocolate!!! What can possibly be better than a card about chocolate? And chocolate makes everything awesome, right? Well, I don't like coffee, but some people would say that coffee is better than chocolate, so...I set to work making a little coffee gift that holds a K-cup. Perfect for my coffee-loving friends!
But finally. Finally it came to me. What is honestly better than a good cocktail? Can't think of much! Cocktails that are fruity seem to be the most delicious. Fruity...the colors of fruit...the colors of fruity drinks...rainbow...RAINBOW GLIMMER PAPER!!!! Yes - that's my thought process. Laugh, if you must, but it's what works for me. I stamped the fruity cocktail glass from the Nothing Better Than stamp set, and voila! A sparkly, fruity drink, that I would gladly consume, but even better to look at. Here is the result:
And because the Rainbow Glimmer Paper in the catalog has way more colors, this:
What fun! It's hard to resist a good sparkly card, and it's extra hard to resist a good sparkly drink. Put them together, and you've got magic! I've got the how-video for this card coming your way next week.
