I used the Stampin’ Up! Tuscan Vinyard and the host exclusive Basket For You stamp sets to create my card to share today. I had a little fun with some watercoloring! 🙂
My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #244.
I started by stamping the cork image from the Tuscan Vineyard stamp set in Crumb Cake ink across the bottom of a panel of Crumb Cake card stock. Then I stamped the olive branch image from the Tuscan Vineyard stamp set in Crumb Cake ink randomly over the top of the Crumb Cake panel. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Delightful Dijon card stock with SNAIL, then to a Soft Suede card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the house image from the Tuscan Vineyard stamp set in Basic Black Archival Ink on a panel of watercolor paper, then watercolored the images with Soft Sky, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand, Old Olive, Delightful Dijon and Cajun Craze inks. I let the image dry completely, cut it out with one of the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, then sponged the edges with Soft Sky and Old Olive inks. I adhered the watercolored panel to a scallop oval that I cut from Old Olive card stock with a Layering Ovals Framelits Die with Fast Fuse Adhesive and to the card front with SNAIL.
I inked the round image from the Tuscan Vineyard stamp set in Basic Black Archival Ink, stamped it on scrap paper once, then stamped it on a panel of watercolor paper. I watercolored the image with Crumb Cake, Old Olive and Perfect Plum inks, punched the image out with the 1″ Circle Punch and adhered it with Fast Fuse to the card front…I do think that I should have sponged the edges of that punched image with either Crumb Cake or Old Olive ink. But I decided that after I’d already adhered the punch to the card front. 🙂
I inked the sentiment banner from the Basket For You stamp set (available to purchase with Stampin’ Rewards with an order or party of $150 or greater) with Soft Suede ink, then used a Blender Pen to remove the ink from the outline. I carefully inked the outline with Old Olive ink and stamped it on a panel of Watercolor Paper. I cut the image out with the matching Bunch of Banners Framelits die, then used my Blender Pen to color the edges of the banner with Old Olive ink. I adhered the banner to the card front with Fast Fuse Adhesive and added an enamel dot from the Metallic Enamel Shapes pack to finish it.
I stamped the cork image from the Tuscan Vineyard stamp set in Crumb Cake ink across a Crumb Cake panel inside the card.
