Keep Calm . . .

and Have a Beer:

I was one of the lucky winners a couple of weeks ago for the GIU and because of that I was able to pick out two Itty Bitty Stamp sets. I can tell you it's a hard choice.
 
My guys are big fans of "The Chive" so I had to pick this stamp.  I did a bunch of techniques on this tag, then started making my layers. 

 
I stamped the beer mug and backed it with a scrap piece of cardstock.  The quote is stamped onto vellum, cut out and glued to the beer mug.  
 

I added some stenciling and clear embossing, then the tissue tape and finally some Tim Holtz metal.  I added the pearls to the top of the card.

Thanks for stopping by.
