Nothing's Better Than for HSS 341

I had a quiet afternoon so took the chance to play around in my craft room. For inspiration, I used the sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments but flipped it to a landscape orientation.
The Nothing's Better Than bundle is a lot of fun, with cute sayings and images based around chocolate, cookies and cocktails - something for everyone! In the past, I've used it for packaging but today, used it to make a card for a fun birthday.

I've stacked the die-cut 'cocktails'. The top one is cut from a piece of Whisper White that has been coloured using Stampin' Blends: Daffodil Delight and Calyso Coral Blends combos.

In keeping with the summer fun vibe, I've kept to citrus colours. I had fun stamping and colouring the cocktail glasses. I sponged a little Daffodil Delight behind them and added in some star (bubbles?) shapes. A little hard to see in the photo because of the reflection but the scallop-edge circle is cut from the new Brass Foil. The Granny Apple Green card front was embossed with the Dainty Diamonds embossing folder.

Product List 


  1. I just used the same set for the same sketch - I just went to link up and saw you in front of me in the gallery- what are the odds?! I already think my cocktail looks a little tame compared to your colourful pair - I love the sponging behind! Very zingy - love the stacked sentiment too. Gorgeous!

  2. Lovely card Jan - I love the stacked sentiments and the lovely zingy colours - thanks for joining us at HSS this week.

  3. Love this so much!! The green pops so much with the black background and looks great embossed! Thanks for playing along at Hand Stamped Sentiments!
