Birthday Brew

Wow, it has been way too long since my last post.  It is not for lack of crafting, more time shortages.  I have one kiddo away at college, middle child is busy with the high school robotics team and the spring musical, the youngest has medical appointments.  By the time I get everyone settled, I may get a few quick projects going and then off to bed!
This is for my hubby's best friend.  He is a fan of home-brewed beer, so I used Stampin' Up's Bubble Over set.  The base is Lemon-Lime Twist with layers of Whisper White and retired DSP.  I stamped the bottles using Versamark, then heat embossed with extra thick chunky clear emboss to get the drippy glossy finish.  I stamped again in Real Red and Pacific Point for the label wraps.  The tags are in Tempting Turquoise and Lemon Lime Twist.  All the die cuts are from the bottles coordinating dies.  I also used the dies to cut some of the designer paper bottles (retired).  I popped the labels up on dimensionals and cut the bottle tops from gold foil.  
TIP: I keep the foil scraps from other projects and cut a ton of the bottle tops at once.  I store them in a mini zip baggie for beads, storing it in the stamp case.  I also use magnetic tape in the case to hold the dies inside the coordinating stamp case.
The inside is stamped with coordinating sentiment and 
bubbles in Calypso Coral, Lemon-Lime Twist, and Tempting Turquoise.  Thanks for looking!  April
