Spellbinders | Wine Country

Hello there, I was delighted to guest design with Spellbinders at the end of August and today, I am sharing two of the cards that I made with you (I will share the third next week). For my cards, I am using the Wine Country collection, which I think is great for lots of occasions.

My first card uses the wonderful Wine Snippets set. The set consists of fabulous frame dies in different sizes. I used the largest one on my card today. I started off by die cutting the frame twice from white cardstock that had Stick It on the back. The frame pieces were stacked on top of each other.
I took an alcohol ink background piece that I had already made (you can see how I made it in this post here) and added the frame piece on top. The piece was added to a 4.75" x 4.75" white square card base with tape runner. I then stamped the sentiment from the Vineyard Wine Bottle Tag set on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This was cut down using a craft knife and ruler and then added to the card with foam tape.
My next card uses three sets from the collection. I started off by die cutting the sentiment piece from the Barrel of Sentiments set from kraft cardstock. While die cutting, I also cut the leaves and grapes from the Frame Charms set from white cardstock. All four of these die cuts were run through the Platinum 6 Die Cutting Machine again using the embossing plate to get the embossed detail on them.
I stamped the sentiment from the Vineyard Wine Bottle Tag set on to the banner with black ink. I then took a blending tool and added Walnut Stain around the edges. I also inked the leaves with Mowed Lawn and Forest Moss Distress Ink and the grapes with Seedless Preserves, Dusty Concord and Walnut Stain. I added a panel of woodgrain cardstock to the front of an A2 white card base and added the sentiment banner on top with foam tape. I then added the leaves and grapes with liquid glue. To finish off, I added a few Raindrops around the sentiment piece.
