Tuscan Vineyard Stamp Set just cries out for vintage rendition. Delightful Dijon is the color I chose to feature this pretty, vintage looking scene. The card base is Delightful Dijon Card Stock layered with a piece of jSerene Scenery Paper as background. I didn’t want the Dandelion ‘Fluff’ to show so I carefully cropped the paper to get all the big stuff out of the way. Then using the motif stamp from the Timeless Textures Stamp Set I stamped off once and then stamp randomly on the background covering all the little fluff that was showing through.
Don’t you love the Burlap Ribbon? But how to feature it? It is perfect on this card and adds to the vintage feel of the scerenly. I adhered a piece of the Burlap Ribbon to the top 1/3 of the card. Then I stamped the pastoral scene from the Tuscan Vineyard Stamp set using Tuxedo Black Ink on Very Vanilla Card Stock. The scene is colored in with the Blender Pen using Emerald Envy, Crumb Cake and Old Olive ink.
Choosing an oval die that fit the scene plus a 1 /4″ I die cut the scene and added a frame by die cutting the next size die in Delightfu Dijon Card Stock. I adhered the frame to the picture using the Fine Tip Glue Pen. This finished piece was adhered to the background using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The little Medallion was stamped using Versamark Ink on Very Vanilla Card Stock. It was then heat embossed using the NEW Stampin’ Up! Copper Embossing Powder. The Medallion was die cut using a small Scalloped Circle die and the background piece-Delightful Dijon- was die cut using the next size up Scalloped Circle die. (These are from the Layered Circles Thinlets Set). I smudged (Using a dauber) the edge of the Medallion with Delightful Dijon before adhering it to its back piece. The finished piece was adhered to the front using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the edge away from the scene and a bit of SNAIL was used on the edge to hold it down to the frame of the scene.
The Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set Sentiment if perfect here, stamped in Versamark Ink and heat embossed using Copper Embossing Powder on Very Vanilla. The sentiment was then trimmed to fit and the ends were die cut using a small die from the Layering Circles Set. The sentiment was then smudged using Delightful Dijon. This was then adhered to a piece of Delightful Dijon Card Stock and trimmed leaving a 1/4″ frame all around.
To finish off the front I cut a short length of the Burlap Ribbon and folded it in two, adhered under the Medallion using a glue dot to hold it in place. (Also had to use a glue dot on each end of the ribbon, they tended to want to jump up!
Love this inside!!! I used a piece of Very Vanilla and stamped it all over using the motif stamp from Timeless Treasures as I did on the front of the card stamping off once or twice. The jugs are from the Tuscan Vineyard Stamp Set, stamped in Delightful Dijon. (Note*I had just reinked my stamp pad and it was too juicy-hence the dark circle at the bottom of the jugs-but kind of lends a shadow effect.)
The inside top is a coverup!!! When I adhered the finished piece to the background I did it on the wrong side! So, hint: using my trusty heat gun I heated the SNAIL slightly, and carefully removed the piece from the top. Oops-some slight roughness and tears left behind so I added this piece of Serene Scenery DSP to the top. Glad it turned out OK. Here is the envie I made to match.
