Today I am participating in Day 5, the last day of the Whimsy Stamps New Release Blog Hop. Today we are showcasing stamps by Time For Tea Designs and Elisabeth Bell.

I chose this stamp called Cheers by Time For Tea Designs.  My niece is turning 21 in a couple of weeks and I knew this stamp would be perfect for a 21st card (and this girl even looks like her :)  Hopefully she likes it.

Time for Tea, whimsy stamps, cheers, cocktail glass die

The sentiment comes with the image and there is also a "Cheers" sentiment too.  This one fits perfectly on the Treasured Moments Tickets stamp set, which was a happy discovery. I used a new Whimsy die too called the Cocktail Glass Die Set. I cut a glass out of acetate and put the ticket behind it, trying to give the impression that the ticket was inside the empty glass.  This card does look a bit nicer in real life, as the gold shoes, drink and top of her dress are all done with a gold spica pen which is nice and sparkly but it hasn't photographed that way unfortunately. You'll just have to trust me ;)
