Wine Theme Framed Art

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!


Beautiful You in Watercolors

Beautiful You in Watercolors, by Krista Thomas, www.regalstamping.com

I had so much fun making this card!  I started with a piece of watercolor paper and some Stampin’ Up watercolor pencils.  I chose four colors, Bermuda Bay, Old Olive, Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight, scribbling them lightly over the watercolor paper in a diagonal direction.  Then I took my aqua painter and went over the panel in the same diagonal direction as before, blending the colors beautifully.

I used my heat tool to quickly dry the panel and then stamped the lady from Beautiful You with Black Staz On ink.  Her dress & hat were then colored in with the Pacific Point watercolor pencil and then blended with the aqua painter.

I am thrilled with the quality of Stampin’ Up’s watercolor pencils and have enjoyed the results that I’ve gotten with them.  If you haven’t experienced them yet, you’re missing out on a great product.  And if you’d like to give them a try, just click on the product picture below and order some for yourself!  You deserve a set!!

The little black curly-cues were cut with a die from  Cheerful Tags and I thought they worked well as accents above and below the label shaped window.

In Style with Beautiful You

In Style with Beautiful You, by Krista Thomas, www.regalstamping.com

I was so thrilled to see the Beautiful You stamp set in the new Occasions Catalog, because I had sent Stampin’ Up a request to create something similar to the retired “Summer by the Sea” and “Seaside Wishes”.  Those were sets from many years ago and were always a favorite of mine.  Whether this new set came into being because of my request, I’ll never know.  But it’s nice to think that maybe it did.

Beautiful You pairs well with So Detailed Thinlits, which was used for the lacy black background.  I chose red, black and white as my colors simply because I’ve always thought they were so elegant and rich together.  In fact, 33 years ago when my husband and I were planning our wedding, those were the colors I wanted to use.  My husband didn’t like that idea, so we thought it would be fun to get “Dear Abby’s” advice.  We made an agreement that whatever her answer was on those colors, we would go with.  Problem solved!  So we wrote her a letter and asked what she thought about a wedding in red, black & white.  (Red dresses on the bridesmaids, black tuxedos on the groomsmen and the bride & groom in white).  I still have her return letter with the answer tucked away in a scrapbook.  She said those colors would be considered “tacky” and in poor taste for a wedding.  To this day I disagree!  But, I’d made a deal, so we changed our colors to pink, grey & white.  What a story, right?  For this card, I did it my way!!
