Mixed Drinks Beer Card: Retiring Products Blog Hop

Hey everybody! I'm stopping by for a quick hello, a birthday brew and a sad farewell...

Today I am taking part in blog hop featuring retiring Stampin' Up! products. My buddy had a birthday this past weekend and he loves a good beer! The soon to be retired stamp set "Mixed Drinks" was the perfect set for me to make him a card with. I stamped the mug of beer (could double as a root beer float too!) in Black Archival ink and watercolored it using So Saffron and Smoky Slate inks.

After the mug dried I added some texture paste to the "foam" and dabbed some So Saffron ink on it to color it in a bit. I used a current set called Bubble Over (carrying over into the next catalog-yeah!) to add the punched sentiment and to stamp the background.

The image piece needed a little extra something so I used a fine tip black Sharpie to add to some little "fizzles" into the air over the beer. I also frayed the top of the watercolor paper with my fingernail and then sponged it with Sahara Sand ink.

This set is such a great one and instead of being sad to see it go... I will keep it and use it forever more because I know lots of people who enjoy a good birthday brew! Is there a retiring set that you will be keeping forever because you hate to see it go?
