Tuscan Vineyard Stamp Set

When Chris, my husband, saw Stampin’ Up! Tuscan Vineyard Stamp Set he said: “we have to have it” ;). In our home, we love to have a glass of good wine on special occasion, or when friends come over. We also make our own wine from the fruits of our garden. Chris (my husband) is very passionate about it. When he was young he’s spent some time on a French vineyard, and he fell in love with the art of making wine.

Tuscan Vineyard for you card

I think this set is perfect for collages, but I decided to use my favourite technique – watercolour. First, I randomly stamped the base of my card using various images from the stamp set. I used Crumb Cake cardstock and ink pad for tone on tone look. Next, I took a piece of watercolour paper and I stamped bunches of grapes and olive branches using Basic Grey Archival ink and water coloured them with an aqua painter. For fine lines, I’ve used Blender Pens.

When I was happy with the results I made some random splotches with Perfect Plum and Wild Wasabi. To assemble my card I backed my watercolour panel with a piece of Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla. I wrap linen thread around the panel, added a piece of new doily underneath, and adhere it to the card base using dimensionals. I stamped round image from the same set, that reads Toscana Vigneto on a piece of Very Vanilla and tucked it underneath the panel. Few rhinestones, simple sentiment, and my card was done. I also stamped inside of the card.

My today’s project is highlighting What I Love stamp set.

What I Love

I love this 3-step stamp set. It’s beautiful and you can use it with so many techniques: heat embossing, watercolouring, stamp off, masking – just to name few. I was so inspired with Blushing Bride and Tip Top Taupe colour combination that I decided to use it for this beautiful Valentine’s Day card. Because who said that Valentines must be red, right?

What I Love 3

I stamped the outline of the flowers with Tip Top Taupe, but the inside is stamped in Blushing Bride. I love this almost vintagey feel of the card.

What I Love 4

I’ve added some WOW factor to my flowers: a touch of clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush Pen. Blushing Bride cotton ribbon finish off my card.

What I Love 5

I also created a matching gift box for a little sweet treat.

I truly hope you enjoyed coming to my blog and see my card.
