Hope you are having a fantastic weekend.

If you just started and want to go to the beginning head
over Amy's blog. This is were the fun begins.
The sentiment set I am using today is
Pick Your Poison
When I opened my package from Unity and saw Halloween I experienced a creative block.
It's not that I don't like Halloween, I actually LOVE Halloween
it's that my mind has been in the summer mood for crafting.
I actually sat at my craft table and randomly stamped images
just trying to see what I could come up with.
I really wanted to use these stamps for something other than Halloween projects.
Then suddenly I had an AHA moment.
My husband is a Tequila lover. He likes to try many different Tequilas all the time.
But there is always that fear ... What if you don't like the bottle that you just purchased.
Good tequila is not cheep.
I have been trying to find a place nearby that offers Tequila tasting with no luck.
So for Father's day I decided to make him his own kit using the small bottles of different brands.
The sentiment is longer than the decorative window,
so I had to use some washi tape to mask off the words
This takes a little time but is well worth it.
I stamp in white and embossed with silver.
Attached it tag to the bag of mini Tequilas.....
Now I have to find a place to hid this...LOL
Then the creative juices started flowing.
I made a bookmark
I used a technique of stamping and using clear embossing powder on black paper.
Then adding some color using Gelato's. I used my metallic colors,
The embossed layer will resist. I stenciled on some spots using two different colors of Radiant Gels
I love the effect of the clear embossing on black.
Added some recycle ribbon and beads to give it a little bling while holding my spot.
Now I have a great bookmark for reading my Stephen King Novels.
And then I could not finish without a Halloween card.
Here I stamped the sentiment and frame in white.
I let the ink dry for a few minutes then added the purple tinsel embossing powder
and then melted it as usual.
The dry embossed background I also added the tinsel embossing powder.
Gives the who card some sparkle. .
By waiting, the powder did not adhere to the whole image.
Give it a little distressed look.
I then stamped the inside with the Happy Halloween Sentiment.
I hope I inspired you today.
