Final Be Inspired Wednesday for Passionately Artistic

This post marks the end of my design team term for Passionately Artistic (formerly the Cuttlebug Challenges). I have thoroughly enjoyed myself and am ready to move on to other projects. A huge thanks go Betty Bee who brought me onto the team and Maggie! Both of you taught me so much!

This week at Passionately Artistic we are giving you New Year's Celebration ideas! 

I chose to decorate a champagne bottle and I like the idea of going out with champagne! :) 

There is a lot going on with this Champagne bottle and I am going to write the tutorial... This is your final warning. :)

Card Stock: Cricut Consumables
Cartridges: Tie the Knot™, Wild Card™
Embossing: Love is in the Air set™, D'vine Swirls™, Swiss Dots™
i-rock and hot rocks from Imaginisce™
Stickles are "Waterfall" from Artful Delight's November Kit (one left!)
Glossy Accents
Ribbon from my Stash
Ink: Studio G™
White Gelly Roll Gel Pen™
Adhesive: ATG


I followed the instructions from Wild Card™ and cut all of the normal layers. *NOTE* The booklet is wrong. When you cut out the card base, it comes out backwards... so you have to flip all of the features to get them to fit properly. *End note*

I embossed the background with D'vine Swirls™ and the "cork" with Swiss Dots™.

I used Glossy Accents on the word "Cheers" as well as the black on the bottle. Unfortunately I had to take the picture when I could so there is still a little bit of "milky blue" that hadn't dried yet. But you still get the point I think. :) I also added the Stickles to the bottle to match the champagne glasses.

I used my Crop-a-dile to punch a hole in the top and tie ribbon through to adhere it to the bottle. Now you have a thank you card attached to the bottle for the host/hostess! :)

I cut a piece of hot pink paper and ran it through the Cuttlebug™ using the Love is in the Air set™.

Next I adhered that to the bottle using my ATG.

I cut out all parts of the champagne glasses (shadow, blackout, base, layers) from the Tie the Knot Cartridge™. 

Next I glued them all together and added the Stickles. While that was drying, I used my i-rock (LOVE IT) to add bling to the bubbles. :) Lastly, I used glossy accents around the edges of the glass to give it some shine and did some white gel pen doodling.

I hope you enjoy this idea for what you can bring to a New Year's party! If you don't drink, remember you can always attach it to a sparkling Martinelli's Apple Cider bottle or Pellegrino! :) 

Now hop on over to the Passionately Artistic blog and see what the other ladies have made to inspire you!
