I like to create cards, scrapbook layouts, mini albums and altered art. I love pretty paper, glitter and coloring with Copics. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 24 years and we have two daughters. I share my craft creations on my blog at www.candyscreationsblog.blogspot.com .
Instructions: Begin by creating a 5" x 7" card base out of white Bazzill cardstock. Next cut a card front from the Italiana Riviera Paper Collection and trim to a 5" x 5" square. Using the large square 2B die, cut out the center and distress edges of the die cut piece and the inside square of the card front with Olive Pastel Chalk Ink. With pop dots add the card front square to the left of the card base and then adhere the die cut center to the card base with Dries Clear Adhesive. Along the right edge of the card base add the Sleek Strips Purple Rhinestones, cutting to fit as needed. With Watermark Ink stamp the Sweet Moments sentiment on the card, add Earthtone Grape Embossing Powder, tap off excess and heat set. Then add Allure Swirls Pearls, cutting to fit as needed, below sentiment. Next on Cryogen White Paper with Tuxedo Black Ink stamp the image from the Riviera Gateway Stamp Set, the wine bottle, two wine glasses, and the small grape clusters. Color with Copics. Detail cut out the image with scissors and adhere to the card with pop dots. Die cut the wine bottle, wine glasses and small grape clusters using the Italiana Grapevines Die. Then on light green and dark green design paper for the collection using Dark Brown Chalk Ink stamp the large triple leaf, the small triple leaf and the vining foliage from the Italiana Grapevines Cling Stamp Set and die cut with the coordinating Italiana Grapevine Die. Also add the small grape clusters to the vining foliage. On purple design paper with Concord Grape Distress Ink stamp the flowers from the Birds and Blooms Set and die cut with the Leafy Branch Die. Shape with the flower shaping tool and add Lemon Chiffon Prills to the flower centers and then add to card. Under the doorway of the colored image with Dries Clear Adhesive add Leaf Green Flower Soft. With Dries Clear Adhesive and the fine Metal Tip add Crystal Glitter to the flowers, add Lichen Glitter to the leaves, add Bonnie Blue Glitter to the grapes and add Flax Glitter to the sun in the colored image. Add the wine bottle and wine glasses with pop dots and then add 3D Crystal Lacquer to the wine glasses and the wine label on the bottle.
