Time For Wine

This weekend, I finally found the time (no pun intended!) to play along with the current TIME OUT Challenge - Rock Around The Clock. I wanted to build the card around the Unity Stamp sentiment "there's always time for a glass of wine" and I decided to make an interactive clock card. Here it is:

I won't go into the details of how I made the clock but I will say that it involved a protractor, and eighth grade geometry (if you want the specifics - please email me - I'm happy to share but it is quite long). I stamped the twelve individual wine glasses in Versamark and heat embossed them with Ranger Liquid Platinum. I then stamped the greeting in black, and did some creative masking before sponging on some Aged Mahogany and Fired Brick Distress Inks - this last part required me to pour myself a glass of red wine so that I could get the colours right :) Finally I die cut the clock hands using a MFT die and coated them in Liquid Platinum embossing powder to match the glasses. The hands were attached with a brad so that they can be spun around - and set to whatever time you would like to indulge in a glass of wine!

I will play along with the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by - I really appreciate the visits!


  1. I love the Jill, so creative! And so much patience. Each little glass positioned perfectly! I mist lol out for that sentiment, I know so many people who this would be so suitable for!
