Tuscan Vineyard thank you cards

I recently got the Tuscan vineyard stamp set from Stampin’ Up! and made a few thank you cards with it. I combined it with the Succulent garden designer paper (retiring May 31st), but the stamp set is also great for colouring, gift tags or even masculine cards.

The card on the left is straight forward to make. I stamped the grapes with basic black from straight on to the designer paper and glued it on the smoky slate cardstock, put in on the card with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment straight on the whisper white and layered in on the Bushing bride before glueing it on to the cardbase.

The card on the right is simple to make to but has a few more steps. I stamped the grapes with basic black twice, first on the piece of whisper white and then on a piece of scrap designer paper. I cut the grapes (not the leaves) out from the designer paper with scissors and glued it on top of the stamped grapes on the whisper white cardstock. I used the old olive water colour pencil to colour in the leaves. I then stamped the sentiment in blushing bride, added pearls and layered the cardstock together.

I love the Tuscan vineyard stamp set and will definitely be using it to make more cards for my blog.

Card is from the 24th April 2017.

Petite Petals (retiring) card

I made this card for my fiance’s aunt in California to thank her for everything she did when we visited her earlier this year. We had a great time wine tasting and being spoiled!

I adore the Petite Petals stamp set and the matching punch which unfortunately are retiring soon or until stock runs out. I combined it with Timeless Textures and All Things Thanks stamp sets. I like how the sentiment springs out of the flowers. I also added Mint Macaroon, Blushing bride Glimmer paper and Blushing Bride Twine which all will be discontinued from 31st of May!

This card looks great and it’s very easy to make as well if you have recently started stamping this is a great card to make. i just like how the sentiment pops out of the flowers. Here’s the list of products I used:

The card is straight forward stamping. You can use the stampmajig to get everything lined up more precise, but I didn’t use it for this card.
1) I stamped the sentiment first, so it’s right where I wanted it 2) Stamp leafy texture stamp with mint macaroon, 3) Glued the front to the piece of blushing bride 4) Tied on twine 5) I glued it all on the front of the card base.
6) The flowers I stamped on scrap paper 7) Punched them out, if you got no punch then use scissors! 8) Folded the flower petals with a bone folder to give it a bit of shape 9) Attached them with glue dots 10) Added rhinestones.

Card is from 19th April 2017.
