Propose A Toast - Day 3

Good morning, friends, and welcome back to Day 3 of the December Papertrey Ink countdown! I can only begin to tell you how much fun it's been to see your enthusiasm for Propose A Toast and we've just scratched the surface! Nichole is showcasing Propose A Toast today and I'm sure she'll find clever ways to use the set that I never even thought of. I have a couple of additional projects for you too, so let's get to it.

My first project today is a celebratory wine bottle tag.


I began by die cutting my tag shape from White Shimmer cardstock and randomly stamped it with the decorative bubbles strip included in the set using Berry Sorbet, Hawaiian Shores, New Leaf, and Summer Sunrise inks. Next, I die cut the "happy" banner using one of the One Liners: Happy die from Berry Sorbet cardstock. Then, I stamped and heat embossed the "New Year" phrase onto Hawaiian Shores cardstock and trimmed it into a thin strip. I adhered that strip to the tag and mounted my "happy" banner over top using foam adhesive. It's a simple project that could be customized to just about any celebratory occasion.

Today's second project is an engagement card. I wanted to recreate the engagement ring in a champagne glass concept and I think I was reasonably successful.


I started by die cutting my champagne flute from white cardstock and stamping it with Spring Rain and Lemon Tart inks. Next, I took an upper case "O" from Simple Alphabet and stamped it with VersaMark. I heat embossed that using gold detail embossing powder and added a tiny (2mm) rhinestone to make it look like a diamond ring.


I stamped my sentiment onto a white card base and heat embossed that with the same gold powder. I stamped a grounding oval using Spring Rain ink before mounting my champagne flute to my card base using foam adhesive.

I hope you've enjoyed my projects today. Make sure to check in with Nichole and Maile for more projects featuring Propose A Toast. Betsy, Heather, Dawn, Erin, Lexi, and Melissa will have projects for you as well. See you tomorrow!
