Pretty Cute Stamps January Sneak Peek!

I sure hope everyone is having a great January! I always feel glad to have a little more free time to myself after the busyness of Christmas! And, I'm always excited to see the new releases from Pretty Cute Stamps!!

This month I get to give you a sneak peek of the Happy Hour Sentiments stamp set! There are so many awesome sentiments - so perfect for any occasion! 

I used my Cricut Explore to cut this tri-fold card and design this wine gift tag. I layered the wine bottle and glasses cuts on both projects and then stamped the sentiments from the Happy Hour Sentiments stamp set. For the red stamps I first dabbed my stamp into Versamark and then into Red Distress Ink before stamping on my papers. I then added Crystal embossing powder to add a shimmery dimension to my stamps.

I used the wine glass, stamped with Versamark and sprinkled with Crystal embossing powder around the frame of my card to add a subtle detail. My silver Wink Of Stella pen was perfect to add some silver shininess to the black wine glasses and scrolls on the bottle diecuts.

I easily masked the sentiment 'You + Me = Girls' Night' (love it!!) to fit into my frame and added a handcut banner. 

If you'd like to make your own project using this Cricut Explore file, I've saved it in Design Space! Here's the link - Wine Tag and Card. It will be all ready for you to cut and add the stamping (you can pick up this stamp set on Friday at the PCS Store!)

To coordinate with our Happy Hour theme Lisa has provided this sweet Bartender FREEBIE cut file - free today only! You can download it through the links on the PCS blog.

Thanks so much for joining me today! I loved creating this project and can't wait to give it to a friend for her birthday! Be sure to stop by the Pretty Cute Stamps blog to check out what all the other Design Team members have to show you for the January sneak peeks. I'll be back Friday with a look at the complete stamp sets and another project to show you!
