So... this is the second August ATC I made for my group.  I love wine... you know it... and I love wine stamps too.  will never have enough.  I think I should have wine related dies but that's something I still don't have.  My birthday is in October in case you want to send me a gift...LOL. just kidding... but I really like this ATC.

I made the background using distress ink and a dauber.

I separately stamped the sentiment in a patterned cardstock and embossed with silver powder and heat.  Also stamped the bottles in ivory cardstock and trim cut.

A pair of sequins helps with a finishing touch.

I will share these on the current challenge of Facebook Unity Show and Tell. :)

How do you drink your wine?  With a joyful heart! 

Here's the first one of two ATC's I make every month for a SWAP group, using Unity Stamp Co stamps.

I love this one for which I used Prima Color Blooms sprays to create the background.  I also inked the edges with color box wine merlot shade.

I stamped the image and used black embossing powder and heat to stand it out.  Each little heart in the hands is a different color, since we should love one another no matter our differences in any area of our lives.

My friends should have received these already... and I started to receive mine too.  I will share with current Unity Show and Tell challenge about ATCs... :). Who knows?  Maybe I win some stamp candy... send me good vibes.  Have a great rest of the weekend.

A group of coworkers asked for a card to give a friend that recently had a heart situation.  They wanted a card showing a real heart conveying a message about strength and courage... in Spanish.

So I don't have a stamp showing a "scientific" heart... and I recurred to a clipart.

I used Spanish stamps from Latina Crafter.  The message in English is:  You are strong, courageous... you are simple special.

In the interior I stamped the Happy Birthday phrase and also used an additional stamp from Unity Stamp Co which shows the beat of the heart.

I made another card more CAS and I am also sharing today.  Also combined stamps from both companies.  the image of the heart and rays is from Unity, and the Spanish phrase from Latina Crafter.

Hope you like my cards.
