Time for cocktails and the new March Visible image release

 I am excited today to be blogging my first design team make with the brand new Visible Image March release. There are three fab new A6 stamp sets with coordinating dies and six A7 sets. Pre orders opened on the website on Friday for worldwide release on Friday 24th March. You can see them all here.

I am sharing my first make with the awesome new "Cocktails and dreams " stamp set. And yes if you're not a fussy cutter you can purchase the co ordinating dies here.

 I am so delighted to see this set added to the Visible Image drinks cabinet. There are so many fun stamps in the set...3 different glasses to choose from, no less than 6 fruit elements, a straw, cocktail umbrella and an ice cube. There are coordinating dies for all of these...a real game changer for those people who dislike fussy cutting. I love fussy cutting but these dies really do speed everything up.

This is what I got up to; I sprayed a rainbow of distress oxide sprays across a piece of white card, adding some water and allowing the inks to drip down. I then I left it to dry. 

I stamped and die cut all 3 glasses, the umbrella, some of the fruit, a straw, some ice cubes and coloured them all with distress pencils. 
I stamped the sentiment in black versafine and clear embossed, adding part onto a piece of white card which I cut out and the rest underneath, directly on the background.

While I was making this card I also made up lots of other cocktails for other cards. This is such fun to do. I added glossy accents to the glasses. Some fruits I stamped directly and others I used the dies.It's also fun to cut into the lemon slice and "sit" it on the rims of the glasses. 
I added the umbrella to the middle glass and I slice of lemon to finish off my card. 
Here is my finished card
