Stampin' Up! In the Moment Friendship Card

Good Sunday morning, peeps! How's your weekend going? Mine will end on a high note as I will be doing dinner and cocktails with my upstate NY family via Zoom. It's my turn for cocktails so we'll be making a Yule Mule. Their choice for dinner is a Shrimp Scampi Pasta Bake.

So, on to my card. The In the Moment Stamp Set will be available to customers January 4, 2022, in the Jan-June Mini Catalog. I love this set!

My card base is Thick Basic White cardstock. I adhered a panel of Simply Marbelous DSP (available for free with $50 purchase during the Jan-Feb Sale-A-Bration). 

Next I cut out a Coastal Cabana scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  

Then I stamped the image on a scrap of Basic White using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I sponged a bit of Balmy Blue ink to make it look like sky. I colored her dress with Light and Dark Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends. I colored the wine glass with a Merry Merlot Stampin' Write Marker and Light Basic Gray Stampin' Blend. I used Light and Dark Soft Suede Stampin' Blends to color her hair and railing. Her skin is colored with an Ivory Stampin' Blend. The bands around her waist and hat are colored with a Light Night of Navy Stampin' Blend.

The sentiment is stamped with Bermuda Bay ink on scrap Basic White and cut out with a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Die Set. 

I adhered the image and sentiment to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. Three Garden Gems finished the front.

For the inside, I had a little "oopsie"...little did I realize I had stuck my hand in the ink and had very noticeable smudges on the left part of the card. So, I covered it with a panel of Sunshine & Rainbows DSP, also from the upcoming for Sale-A-Bration. I had already stamped the sentiment and added a strip of the Simply Marbelous DSP at the bottom. It looked rather odd having two different patterns so I cut a 1/2" strip of the matching Sunshine & Rainbows pattern and adhered. I used Bermuda Bay to sponge the inside as the white was too bright for my taste.

Thank you for stopping by today and let me know if you tried the recipes I linked. I did a trial run for the Yule Mule and it was VERY refreshing! I'll let you know tomorrow how dinner went. You DO care, don't you? LOL!!
