Joie de Vivre!

Happy Sunday folks! It is suddenly starting to feel like fall around here, it makes me want to curl up beside the fire with a good book and a glass of Pinot Noir, speaking of wine, have you seen the “Bon Appetit” stamp set from The Rubber Cafe? It is fabulous, here is a couple of cards I whipped up last night with it:

Stamps: The Rubber Cafe, Cardstock: Co'ordinations, DCWV, otherL clear ink, markers, embossing powder

I used my Cricut and SCAL software to make the cards, you can grab my free template and cutting flies below. The purple bottle is cut from Co’ordanations cardstock with the lighter side on the inside so your writing will show up πŸ˜‰ The green bottle is textured cardstock from Die Cuts With a View. I used the Fleuradidy 2 stamp and clear ink to stamp directly on the textured cardstock (these stamps are so deeply etched and wonderful that they even stamp well on textured cardstock!) then I heat embossed it with gold powder. I smooshed the clear pad on the bottle top and embossed it to look like the foil seal that champagne bottles have, easy, quick,Β  clever! On the inside I did tone on tone stamping with the pretty leaf stamp, it just gives you a little extra flair i think πŸ˜‰

here is the inside of the card

To stamp the wine label I inked up the stamp in caramel then used tombow (use any water based marker for this, tombow happens to be my favorite) brush markers to add green, red and purple to the grapes, breath on the stamp to moisten the ink and stamp on cream cardstock, cut out and adhere to card.

Using markers to add multi colors to a rubber stamp is quick, easy and fun!

    • Huh, that is the exact file I used on this card. Did you import it into scal instead of opening it? Maybe that was the trouble, I’ll check right on it though;)

      • I just downloaded the file on my other computer and it showed up in scal fine, be sure to “import” it instead of “open” it (I still make that mistake;)
