Soda, Pop or Cola?


I think I mentioned before that my grandfather used to have an authentic soda pop machine in his garage and the highlight of going to their house was when he gave each of us a dime and we got to choose our flavor: orange or rootbeer. Nothing was as good as opening the bottle with the little opener right on the machine and taking a swig out of the glass bottle.


I'm back today with a card created with the fun Fresh Squeezed Stamps Soda-lighted sett that brings back so many memories. My card features stamping onto the back of the soda bottle with a colored ink and then coming back to stamp with a black ink the correct side of the stamp. I added the fun bubbles in respective inks, the label and the sentiment. The card is finished with a single strand of black floss tied in a bow.


It's been fun to guest design for Fresh Squeezed Stamps for the month of November, along with the talented designers Chari Moss, Arielle Gordon and Lynn Put. Fresh Squeezed Stamps and I have a few more posts scheduled for the month. Please stop on over to the Fresh Squeezed Blog for more information about this super fun set and pop on by their Facebook Page and say hello to Fresh Squeezed Stamps on their Twitter Page too!

  15. I like the fizzy bubbles in your soda pop! When my hubs was in the USAF we were stationed in Florida. No matter what it was, pepsi, rootbeer, orange they all called everything Coke! Go figure ;)

  22. Color me envious for the soda fountain! How cool is that? I think we all wish we could go "back in time" to experience things like that.

    I picked up "soda" while living in WI and never dropped it here in "pop" land in Colorado. I like soda much better :)
