Fond Farewell ~ Tuscan Vineyard

We are in the last couple of weeks for the Stampin UP! 2018 – 2019  annual catalog which means that stamp sets and other products will be retiring and there are some of my favorites among them.  So I am going to use my blog posts to share some of the things that are retiring – along with links so that you can put in your order so you don’t miss out.

Today’s card uses the Tuscan Vineyard Stamp Set ~ one I have used on several cards in the past, this one makes a great guy card.

Tuscan Vineyard with Crumb Cake and Blackberry Bliss

So …….. time got away from me in the last few days and I missed out on a couple of posts.  I like to write them ‘live’ rather than in advance so during the last few days of the US tax season my long tax preparation days got in the way.

Today is the last day I shall be preparing taxes until next year and I have taken a little ‘timeout’ to share a celebration drink with you using one of my present favorite stamp sets – Tuscan Vineyard.

Triple Layer Stamping ~ Video Tutorial

I do love a good technique! I know Triple Layer Stampin’ has been around for a while but it is always good to revisit and bring it up to date with our current stamp sets and colors.

I have chosen the Tuscan Vineyard stamp set for this card – it has lots of different images that work very well with this technique, and paired it with Itty Bitty Birthday Wishes Stamp Set for my greeting.  I am also thinking that it would make a great card for the fellas in our lives, birthday, graduation or even Father’s Day!

Merry Merlot in a Tuscan Vineyard!

I just could not resist it………….. using the Tuscan Vineyard Stamp set with the Merry Merlot ink and card!!!!!!  With the exception of a little glint of gold I made this card monocromatic so the images really pop out.  I am thinking that this will be one of my sweet and simple cards where I use one stamp set, some card and ink, an embellishment and a couple of tools.

Card base:  11 x 4 1/4 Merry Merlot Card ~ scored @ 5 1/2

Layer 1:  5 1/4 x 4 Very Vanilla Card

Layer 2: 3 3/4 x 2 3/4 Merry Merlot Card

Layer 3: 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 Very Vanilla Card

Banner 4 1/4 x 1 1/4 Merry Merlot and 4 1/4 x 1 Very Vanilla Card

Ink Colors: Merry Merlot

Layer 1 was stamped randomly with the Bunches of Grape Stamp, then attached to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.  Layers 2 and 3 are popped up on  4 – 5 Stampin Dimensionals, as it the banner at the base of the card.

A trio of gold metallic pearls and we have a card ready to send.  I did not add a greeting to this card, partly because the stamp set does not have any but also I think it would work for any occasion, don’t you?
