The Twinery and Rubbernecker Stamps Blog Hop!




I'm so excited to be part of today's blog hop with The Twinery and Rubbernecker Stamps!  If you are coming from Karen Hunsaker's Blog, you're in the right place!  If you're just stopping by my blog and would like to participate in the blog hop, be sure to look on either The Twinery's Blog or The Stampin' Sisterhood's blog for the full list of participants.

Now for the fun part!  I received a couple of really fun stamps from Rubbernecker Stamps, including the Martini Glass and The Olive.  These were perfect for me since my husband is a big martini lover!
Here's what I came up with:


OK, a little "punny" but I couldn't resist!  I stamped the martini glass, then fussy cut it out.  After coloring it, I coated it with Glossy Accents to make it look glass-like.

 

I stamped the Olives on some green patterned papers, and embellished them with some Maraschino Twine "pimentos".  The swizzle stick was made using Charcoal Twine..

 

To add a bit more color, I added some fun washi tape and a Celtic heart knot using my favorite Honeydew Twine.  I thought the heart tied into the Lots Olive theme!

Now for the prizes!  Both The Twinery and Rubbernecker Stamps are giving away some awesome prizes!  The Twinery has an "I Dream in Color" Sampler Pack, a retail value of $32!


And Rubbernecker Stamps is giving away a $25 gift certificate to one lucky winner.
