Time for Friends...and WINE!...

Hey everyone!
 I'm so excited to be posting a fun card and project using HELMAR adhesives and  {Ippity} stamps today!  I have a super FUN project featuring the adorable new set titled, "Time for Friends and Wine" that was just released at the beginning of October!

This set is fresh off the press and with the holidays coming up (right around the corner- there's no escaping this, ha!), we all could use a quick and EASY hostess gift on hand, right?

I took a bottle of wine and made a fun label featuring some super glittery and fun paper from My Mind's Eye.  I just happened to have this brad with a clock on it.  I loved that it was "Time" for friends and Wine and so it worked out perfectly:
I'm still a sucker for frilly, floral trim so I adhered some trim on the top when I was done to give this an even prettier flair to the bottle:
...and I could NOT have done any of this without my Helmar cast of characters!  I am NOT kidding!  I used Acid Free glue to glue down the label all the way to the edges.  This is super important when you're glueing anything that curves because the paper edges can lift all to easily sometimes.  I then took Helmar 450 Quick Dry to glue the floral trim down (Webster's Pages Bloomers :).  LOVE this trim. 

Of course, no hostess gift would be complete without a card, right?  Here's a closeup of a quick and simple card I made.  The best part?  All of the papers were scraps from the wine label!   Again, it was Helmar to get the job done.  These papers are SOOOO glittery that a normal tape runner wouldn't cut it. I used 450 Quick Dry for the entire card and flowers.

I hope you guys enjoyed my project today!  I had a blast making this and can't wait to give it away!  This project is featured on the HELMAR USA Design Team Blog today and will also be on the Unity Blog this evening....a "Triple feature" if you will...hope it's worthy!
See you all soon!  For a list of where you can buy {Ippity} stamps, click here.
