Tuscan Vineyard Layered Card

I thought I'd do another card with the stamp set " Tuscan Vineyard " I just love this stamp set. The artist has put lovely lines on these stamps to make it so easy to color. I have colored the grapes with my ink pads and some blender pens, it was so easy to color. I have a tutorial on this type of coloring over on my Utube Channel. I have then stamped one of the images as my background  and lightly sponged with Wisteria Wonder over the leaves to add a vintage look. As extra texture my second panel on the card I have embossed with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder, added some Burlap Ribbon and Wink of Stella. 

I think with all the elements and layers on this card it makes the grapes really pop!

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Layered Panel Card

I was asked to design a Panel Card for my craft classes but with a bit of a twist, the ladies wanted to step it up. So I designed this card for them to make the basic Panel Card then using some new techniques and layers stepped it up. I have used one of our new stamp sets "Artistically Asian" along with the Papillion Potpourri and Hardwood Stamp Sets. Also using the Bitty Butterfly and Decorative Label Punch with a bit of bling with the Wink of Stella Clear on the butterflies and some bakers twine and Metallic Enamel Shapes.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

In This World - Open The Door

 vote here

Welcome back to another Awesome Friday where you get to see some of the Crazy Crafters wonderful cards and projects they have created during the week. Please visit 

I just love this stamp set " In This World" in can be used in so many different ways. I have this time on my first panel sponged a piece of Very Vanilla with Melon Mambo, then stamped one of the images from the set over the sponging adding like a background stamped effect. I then stamped the door and layered it onto a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock and a piece of Old Olive cardstock, stamped the chair on a piece of Very Vanilla and added it to the card with dimensionals, stamped the key and the sentiment and added it to the card. Finally added some Melon Mambo Ribbon and Pearls and some Wink of Stella to step it up.

Twisted Easel Card Guy Greetings


Welcome back to another one of our famous blog hop's during this month of August, we always have a wonderful inspirational creative person join us each blog hop. I am super excited to have the inspirational and very talented Dawn Olchefske, I have watched a few of Dawn's tutorial's and find her very easy to learn from even if it is through social media. I am thrilled to have Dawn join us as our very special guest, make sure you click on her name or the photograph below to check out her blog for some awesome new techniques, cards and projects to inspire you.

 dawn blog

Our theme this week for our Blog Hop is to choose one of Dawn's cards/projects and CASE.
(Copy and Selectively Edit one of Dawn's cards or projects and create your own)

This is Dawn's card I have chosen to CASE:

 

With my card I have chosen to use the Woodlands Embossing Folder as in Dawn's card, wet embossed it through my Big Shot using my Daubers and Ink Pads. Then I stamped the entire embossed woodlands with a versamark ink pad, coated it with clear embossing powder and heat to set. This leaves a lovely shiny finish to the embossed piece of cardstock.

I then applied it to a Twisted Easel Card and used the "Guy Greetings" stamp set to use the repetition technique with the car stamp image and applied it to my card. Added some more dimension to the card and of course some Clear Wink of Stella on my car and hat stamps from the stamp set. I have made a "Happy Father's Day Greeting" and using some dimensionals to use it as a stopper so my card would stand open.
