This Tuscan Vineyard stamp set is another new set that I was anxious to ‘play’ with. It’s sort of vintage. I love wine. It reminds me of travels to Europe or California’s own wine country. It’s peaceful.
I decided ahead of time to have a somewhat distressed look to my card. I used Stampin’ Up!’s retired Distressing Tool to achieve the effect I wanted although you could also use a thumb nail to get that distressed look. Honestly, I don’t remember what else I used to use before this tool came along besides my thumb but I know I used something else.
The water coloring, with my Aqua Painter, was amazingly easy. I used Shimmery White card stock to stamp and watercolor on. I pulled these Classic Stamp Pads to use and the rubber stamped artwork made it look good pretty darned good!
- Soft Sky – sky
- Crumb Cake – mountains and some fields
- Crushed Curry – house
- Garden Green – Cypress trees
- Pear Pizzazz – vineyards
- Sahara Sand – fields a little bit
- Wisteria Wonder – grapes on accent piece
- Tuxedo Black Memento pad – stamping of the images
I’m already looking forward to making my next Tuscan Vinyard card which I’m thinking will be a note card rather than a full sized card. Again, I’m loving the softness of this set just as I did the Birthday Fiesta the other day! So I’m on a roll to make another one. Be sure to go to my Stampin’ Up! online store if you’d like to add this lovely Tuscan Vineyard stamp set to your collection. It’s also available in clear mount and clear blocks a, b, d, e, and g are recommended. Wood or clear mount, enjoy. It’s a lovely stamp set.
