It’s Happy Hour Time

Well somewhere it’s Happy Hour time – not exactly where I am right this minute while I’m writing.  It’s not even 10 am here yet.  But in any case I’m going to share with you this cute card using the Happy Hour stamp set.


I wanted to use the new In-color Tangelo Twist on this card – that way I could make oranges.  I wasn’t sure what color I wanted to use with it so I pulled out my Color Coach (you can buy the cards for the new in-colors) and one of the color combo suggestions included Island Indigo.  Which now makes me remember the Halo Clementine orange commercials – not sure they have those every where – but where I live they have the commercials on TV and the only colors they use are the orange and blue (and white).

I wanted a piece of the designer paper to use on the card but I didn’t have any current papers that had Island Indigo.  So I ended up using the Sweet Taffy paper that has Tempting Turquoise in it.  The one printed seemed to work just perfectly with my Island Indigo card stock.

Oh – I have a trick for the little orange slice – a perfect way to cut it out that is super easy!  Stamp the little orange on Whisper White card stock – punch it out with the 1/2″ circle punch – then cut it in half – a perfect orange slice just for adding to the edge of the glass.


Enjoy a nice drink for Happy Hour today!
