Heartfelt Creations - Italiana Gravevines


Welcome!  
Today I am sharing a card I created using Italiana Grapevines Stamp Set and Die

This stamp set, die and paper are from Heartfelt Creations.  
I love this set.   I live in Central California and Wineries are all around me!   





Other products
Copic alcohol ink markers (BV0000, BV00, BV04, BV08, BV25, YG00 YG11, YG61, G29), 110# ivory cardstock, 80# moss colored green cardstock, Mini Mister, sponge dauber, Vintage Photo distress ink, Stickles - Crystal, 

Project Instructions
The card size for this card is 5 1/2”  x 5 1/2”.   120# ivory card stock was used for the card base.  Italian Grapevines grapes and leaves were stamped with Memento Dye Ink - Espresso Truffle. The grapes and leaves were colored with Copic Markers -(BV0000, BV00, BV04, BV08, BV25, YG00 YG11, YG61, G29),   Feel free to use any type of colored markers, pencils  or ink you have on hand.  The images were cut  using the  Italiana Grapevines die set.  They were shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  This adds beautiful dimension to your project.  I added glue to the underside and allowed it to dry to add strength to the modeled grapes and leaves.  

A  base mat was cut from a moss green cardstock  at 5 1/4” x 5 1/4”.   The designer layer was selected from the Italiana Riviera Paper Collection and cut at 5” x 5”. A scenic wine cellar matt was selected from the Italiana Riviera Paper Collection and cut around to pre-colored mat-lines.   The edges  of the mats were sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink. 

The grapes and leaves were adhered with Art Institute clear glue. Diamond Glaze was added to the leaves and grapes for shine and a  small amount  of crystal Stickles were applied for accent. 




Thank you for visiting! 
  I hope you stop by Heartfelt Creations and check out the  yummy and amazing stamps, die and paper collections HERE!

  1. Ooooh! This is a really great card! I love the entire look of it especially the way you tied the grapes in with the overall theme. I rarely purchase scenery stamps but I am going to consider those images now. Thanks for showing me a creative new look.

  11. This is beautiful! I bought the stamps and dies, waiting on the Chameleon pens, and now, at the risk of my husband killing me, what did you use to make the beautiful frame?
    Thanks

    1. The frame and picture in the center is a mat from the coordinating designer paper collections. I then stamped the grapes and leaves. Colored them and then die cut them. I shaped them and adhered them around the frame and center picture that was in the paper collections. Hope that helps. I hope you enjoy the stamp set. I am going to make another for a birthday card for a friend. I live in the California wine country to I feel right at home with this collections! Any of the grape collections would work for the center and an oval decorative die - or even a round would be great ... I would love to see what you come up with. I am still learning to use the Chameleon! I usually do Copic markers and colored pencil. Learning watercolor but that is a little more difficult for me.... but I am working on it! LOL Hope to see your creation! My email - mariegamber@comcast.net
