Hello, Everyone! Today I am sharing two cards that I made with this awesome Happy Hour die set from Tim Holtz and Sizzix. I’ve been wanting to use these dies for awhile. In fact, I had planned on making some New Year’s cards with them, but time got away from me. With one of my friend’s birthdays coming up, and another friend’s recent wedding, I figured now was a great time to pull these dies out.

The best thing about making these cards is that I got to use some of my alcohol ink scraps. If you’ve ever played around with alcohol inks, you know how it goes – there are always some pieces that don’t quite come out the way you had hoped. Don’t throw those away! I was able to use a lot of scraps in my cards today. Some of them were perfect for making drinks. The turquoise piece was made with Silver Sparkle cardstock. The purple piece had some silver mixative. I think these dies just call for alcohol inks because the inks really give the feeling of movement.

For the second card, I touched base with my friend to see what her and her new hubby’s favorite drinks are. When she said Tito’s and Whiskey, I was like…hmmm, okay. I can’t really put a cute pink umbrella in either of those, can I. Rather than ditch the idea, I went with it. Again, the alcohol ink scraps did the trick. And even though I wasn’t able to add a cute umbrella, I do love those olives. I actually did not have the perfect scrap for those, so I pulled out some alcohol inks in yellow and green and added it to a plain scrap of Yupo paper.
It’s not your average wedding card, but she’s not your average bride, and I think customizing cards is fun. I did add a little pop of romance with the background. For that, I just dry embossed the Nested Heart Cover Die from The Stamp Market. So, what do you think? Does it look like a dirty martini?
That’s it for my cards today. Thank you so much for joining me, and I’ll see you next time!
Wishing you all a crafty day,
