Creating with Build-A-Picnic

Those who know me know that I love wine- it's probably my third hobby after theatre shows and crafting!

When I saw the Build-A-Picnic stamp set, I had to have it just for the adorable wine bottle and wine glass stamp, but the whole set is adorable.

I am sharing two cards using this stamp set today.

The first card was at the request of my friend, who wanted a male retirement card with psychedelic colours and wine theme. Sounds rather random but I was able to make it work!

I sponged the background of the card and matted it with some Willow paper, and then added a Cricut stripe overlay over the sponging. I then added a small sentiment and the wine themed stamps.

I am entering this card in the Color Dare challenge and the H2H anything goes challenge.

My second card was more minimalistic, focusing on the sweet picnic basket and food. I added a simple embossed cloud panel and a strip of striped paper to break up the white but still keep this CAS. I am entering this second card in the CASology Cloud challenge.

I love the versatility of this stamp set and I can't wait to use it for my summer picnic pages!
