Wine Theme Framed Art
Today I am happy to share one of the 12 x 12 framed art pieces that I’ve been working on. This wine themed art uses multiple stamp sets, embossing folders, techniques, die cutting and even some fussy cutting (with scissors).
I’m offering this as a class for local residents, but if you’re not in western Oregon and want your own, you can purchase it ready-made from my Etsy store here.
The predominant colors in this piece are Cajun Craze, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Crushed Curry. The canvas frame is painted with Burnt Umber acrylic paint, and the large background paper is vanilla with metallic gold accents.
Over the next few days, I’ll be sharing my coffee theme and ocean theme framed art pieces, and if you don’t want to miss them, consider subscribing to my blog. It’s fast & easy and you’ll never miss another post!
Thanks for stopping by today and may your glass always be half full!
This Triple Fold technique is a fun way to use coordinating designer paper for a colorful “wow” factor. With just 3 score lines, it’s easy and fun to make. Let’s get started!
Cut a Soft Suede panel measuring 12″ x 5 1/2″.
Score along the 12″ side at 1 3/4″, 4 3/4″ & 7 3/4″.
The first score line is a valley fold, then mountain, then valley. Your card base is now ready to be decorated!
You will need three pieces of designer (printed) paper to decorate the card base. The measurements are:
Front section- 1 1/2″ x 5 1/4″
Middle section- 2 3/4″ x 5 1/4″
Back section- 1 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ and a white panel measuring 2 1/2″ x 5 1/4″. This white panel will be where you stamp your sentiment.
The card will be held shut with a belly band, so you’ll need two pieces of paper measuring:
1 1/4″ x 11″ (card stock)
1″ x 11″ (designer paper)
Glue the 1″ strip onto the 1 1/4″ strip and then somewhat loosley wrap it around the card, overlapping the ends and gluing them together.
Stamp the coffee cup pieces and assemble, gluing it to the belly band at the front of the card.
Slide the belly band off of the card and finish embellishing the inside of the card as desired.
Stampin’ Up! and Fall go together like Pumpkin Spice and Latte… Perfectly!
This card features a stamp set, Merry Cafe, that’s designed to coordinate with the Coffee Cafe bundle and offers some seasonal options for those coffee lovers in your life.
I started with a stamped burlap background, positioned diagonally on the card so that it looks like a table cloth or place mat.
The little stamped leaves on the cup are from Merry Cafe and I stamped them very similarly to the sample in the holiday catalog.
This stamp set includes Halloween, fall & winter accents and verses, making this set a fabulous addition to the Coffee Cafe Bundle available in Stampin’ Up’s Annual Catalog.
Finally, the large leaves are from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits and are cut out of Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze.
Until very recently, I was not feeling ready for the Autumn season, but I think I’m finally there. We’ve had a hot, dry summer which I truly enjoyed, but the cool, crisp air of Fall will be a welcome change.
Hello Fall! It’s pumpkin spice latte season!
I live in one of the most beautiful places on earth, in western Oregon, and right now much of my state is on fire. We have luscious forests here, but after a hot dry summer, all it takes is a lightening strike, a careless person with a cigarette or a thoughtless teenager with some fireworks, and it all goes up in flames.
My card today reflects my love for Oregon and the beauty that surrounds all who live here. Please pray for our brave and tireless firefighters and praise God for the rain that has recently started falling!
The new Card Front Builder Framelits, from the 2017 Stampin’ Up Holiday Catalog, were used to make the trees and the deer. I love it when a Christmas themed set of dies are useful year round. Masculine cards are always needed, atleast in my family, where the guys definitely out-number the girls, so I’m sure I’ll be making a few more with this versatile set!

Tip Top Taupe 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock
Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing another card that was made during my Clean & Simple card classes earlier this month. It features a gold-embossed rose from the Graceful Garden stamp set and is water colored with Calypso Coral and Old Olive.
The background paper is a 6 x 6 stack, called Petal Garden and the colors in it are just stunning! You can order your package of it by clicking the product picture below.
I can’t start my day without a cup of coffee. Don’t even talk to me until I’ve had a cup! It took my husband a long time to learn this and while he now knows it, he sure doesn’t understand it. He has joked that I should just hook up to an I-V filled with coffee! Nope, it’s the flavor and smell that I love…an I-V won’t work!
This coffee card features a background of the lovely Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper, and yes, those are metallic polka dots in Soft Sky! It’s so much prettier in real life! There are three other foil colors in this pack besides the Soft Sky…there’s Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Tangerine Tango. All are simply gor-ge-ous!!
Then I used a piece of Bundle in Love Designer Series Paper behind the coffee cup. The words are stamped in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla card stock and then I pieced in the three words that are stamped with Early Espresso ink on Soft Sky card stock.
If you love coffee the way that I do, you’ve might need the Coffee Cafe Bundle so that you can make your own coffee cards. I see myself buying a lot of coffee stand gift cards in the future as a great way to say “thank you”, complete with a hand-made card!

Coffee is golden when you pair Stampin’ Up’s Coffee Cafe Bundle with the new Bundle of Love Designer Series Paper! Each sheet of this beautiful paper has one side that is gold embossed and it’s just gorgeous! The opposite sides of each sheet are patterns in either Soft Sky or Blushing Bride.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my golden coffee card today! If you need any of the products to make your own card, feel free to click on one of the pictures below and you’ll be transported to my Stampin’ Up store.
