Wine Labels with Stampendous

Hello crafty people hope you are all looking forward to coming back this next week after our short interlude and I do hope that the weather remains as it is at this moment in time, fairly bright and no wet stuff lol! as if that is going to happen !!!! well one never knows does one - we can live in hopes......
At this point just before I carry on I would like to say "sending best wishes to Margaret" I know she is home after her op and doing OK so hurry up and get that new knee going then you will be back with us in no time, and also to my big sister Irene who has had the same op just the week before Margaret so sending you both love and hugs for a speedy recovery, take care xx Plenty of R n R but don't forget those exercises : ) xx

Now back to our crafting with next weeks class here we have two lovely stamps by Stampendous - Wine Labels & Grape Label..... Both from the Cling Rubber range.

The first card is a C5 Landscape and would be suitable for either a male or female.

 The larger of the two panels  is stamped with the Cling Wine Labels and has been layered onto the background paper. The main image panel is stamped with the Cling Grape Label and both have been coloured with Distress Ink Pads and Pencils.

I used a fine water brush to paint in the grapes and my pencils and blender pen for the leaves

This card has a more vintage feel by way of the colours I have chosen and if you leave off the glitter which I added onto the grapes in the background then it would make a great card for a man I think.

The Mirror card glasses have been cut with a Sizzix small die called Champagne Glass and the decorative label has been cut with another Spellbinders die from Parisian Accents

Sentiment stamp is from my stash and came free with a magazine.

Card number two is 6x6 square and is very simple by design. This time I have only used the Grape Label stamp onto Distress Ink coloured card and the grapes have been decoupaged on top of the frame.
The background is simply pearl card which has been embossed in a Die'sire folder and put through the eBosser.

The frame has been cut using a Spellbinders Die Captivating Squares

I have used my pencils this time to colour the grapes and leaves.
To finish I added Glossy Accents to the grapes for a different textured look.

Here are the ingredients I used in the making of both cards

See you all soon  : )

Mini Folded Album

Well!!!!  Confusion confusion - Keep Calm............... And .....................HURRY UP!!!

Late and sorry but things had to be changed on the very last minute and when I say very last I really do mean it however I got there in the end so without the fuss and circumstance here we go for this week.........

The firs project as you may of already gathered is not a card this time but a Mini Folded Album which could be used for a variety of different things.

All I needed to complete this little project was a couple of Distress Ink Pads - Tumbled Glass and Shabby Shutters, my Collall All purpose glue and some Cosmic Shimmer glue.

 The Mini Album comes on a 12 x 12 sheet and is ready die cut for you so all you need to do is pop it out embellish to your hearts content, there are lots of extra pieces on the sheet for this but I have added in some extras.  The corners and flourishes are all from Xcut Dies. The flower on the front of the album is also made up from an Xcut Die. I used a Sanding Block to remove any little pips left behind once the Album was taken from the sheet.

 I have added some white panels to the inside which I stamped with a Stampendous Cling rubber stamp which is called Wine Labels. The corners have been punched with a Fiskars Corner Slots punch and this would allow you to add in some photo's or things like recipe cards etc....
 Onto our card this week which is a 6 x 6
square base card.

The background which measures 5.5 x 5.5 inches has been created using the same stamp and Tumbled Glass ink pad.
I have used some Cosmic Shimmer Flake and Glitter glue onto cut and dry foam to stencil through my sequin waste and then added my Gilding Flakes for that metallic look.

As you can see I have used the same dies again and the centre panel which is 3 and a quarter inches square has been embossed with my Regency Swirls Die'sire embossing folder.
 I have deepened the edge of the background panel with some Black Soot Distress Ink

Ta! Da!  Didn't think I'd make it this week.

See you soon x
