This week’s color challenge at Paper Players made me think of lavender fields, and then, grapes. With colors like this, don’t you agree?
I just happened to have the perfect stamp set for the challenge, Tuscan Vineyard. It has a beautiful bunch of grapes that I stamped in Elegant Eggplant. Using my Blender pen, I colored in the grapes with Wisteria Wonder, and the leaves with Tranquil Tide.
I found the sentiment, “Thanks a Bunch,” in the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set. I’m very happy how the sentiment works with a bunch of grapes, as well as a bunch of flowers!
How do you like the circular frames? They are from a new set, Swirly Frames, and something I’ll be using a lot. The Layering Circles Dies fit perfectly for cutting.
The card base is Elegant Eggplant, layered with Tranquil Tide, and topped with Whisper White. I embossed the top layer with the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder, which seemed to go with grapes and vineyards. Besides, I like the deep, rich pattern it gives. The new catalog has 25 embossing folders, so those of us who like to emboss are thrilled!
Before attaching my framed circles with dimensionals, I wound Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the top layer, and added a triple bow. You can also see the Wisteria Wonder heart. Love those Enamel Shapes!
Last, but not least, I covered the envelope flap in Designer Series Paper. It’s Tranquil Tide from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Pack. It’s fun choosing a paper that goes with the card, and knowing it’s ready to send. You may have noticed, I’m using another pattern beneath my card for photographing. These 12X12 inch sheets are the right size, and you’re able to see how Stampin’ Up coordinates everything.
Thanks so much for stopping by my vineyard. Have a great day!
