Okay, so I broke my own promise–for two reasons–I was told not to stop sharing them, LOL, and I wanted to share the one that I would be featuring at my Stamp-A-Stack of stuff next week!
I have always loved this set (not as much as DD Grapevine which is long gone but not forgotten). I think my downline love it as well since I am sad to report I can only find ONE sample of the many nice cards I’ve made with it so I had to start from scratch on this… I’ve got to stop lending my samples out!!!
I usually start a gift bag & stationery holder from inspiration from a card. You can see the card in the bottom left hand corner. I did 3D it with the 3rd bunch of grapes. I think making one bunch of grapes 3D is more effective on this than masking.
The gift bag has one bunch of grapes popped up as well as the large grape leaf (at 5:00) and the smaller grape leaf (at 11:00). The gift tag is a large grape leaf stamped on a folded piece of cardstock to make a “card”.
I used an “oatmeal” colored tissue (you can find wonderful shades of tissue at party stores) for the stamped matching tissue paper. The bag is kraft colored and there is sponging of More Mustard (hence the mustard stripe in the gift bag top & bottom) to give it an “earthy” feel. The grapes are stamped on vanilla rather than white as well.
Okay, I will start sharing other cards & projects as the week goes on!
