Vintage Grapevine for Monday Morning Facebook Live

vintage grapevine for monday morning live 1

 Welcome back after the weekend! We're suffering through an intense heatwave here with highs in the 40s which is like 104 plus in Fahrenheit. We're lucky enough to have central air conditioning, but I really feel worried for those who don't. Thankfully, they are setting up cooling centers for people who don't have options.

Today is my regular Monday Morning Facebook Live and I wanted to do a simpler version of a vintage card that I did a couple of weeks ago so I could demonstrate it. I will post the You Tube video replay here after I upload it. (I apologize for the sound quality. Something went wrong with the editing program I use.)


Here is the more complicated version:

original vintage card 1

You can find it here.

My speedier, simplified version is this one, using the Forever Grapevine Bundle from page 76 in the 2021/22 Annual Catalogue.

  • Again I used an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock for my base. Soft Sea Foam is an awesome colour to use for vintage card making, especially paired with Very Vanilla and wood tones. The card base is scored along the 8 1/2" side at 4 1/4".
  • On another sheet of Soft Sea Foam cut at 4" x 5 1/4", I stamped some splatters from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in stamped off Crumb Cake ink.
  • Then this panel is embossed in the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder as a faster way of adding Embossing Paste texture. I then used a Blending Brush to lightly add Crumb Cake ink to areas on the top of this panel, after adding a strip of the Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim down the left side of this panel about 3/4" from the left side.
  • I made a raised "wooden panel" by cutting a piece of the heavy chipboard that comes with our foil sheets to 2 3/4" x 4 1/2" and then a piece of the dark wood grain from the In Good Taste DSP to the same measurements and gluing the two together, matching the edges exactly. This panel is glued to the card front as shown.

  • I die cut the grapevine, extra leaves and a couple of the flourishes from the an extra piece of Soft Seafoam, measuring 5 3/4" x 4 1/4". The dies are from the Grapevine Dies. I glued on the grapevine and flourishes to the woodgrain panel and then added the extra grape leaves with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment is from the Forever Grapevine stamp set as is the shape around it and it is die cut with a coordinating die from the Grapevine Dies. I stamped it in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped the shape around it in Crumb Cake ink. I added Crumb Cake ink to the edges using a Blending Brush.
  • Dimensionals were used to add the sentiment to the card front as shown.
  • For a couple more days you can get the Ladybug trinkets from the Jan/June Mini Catalogue, then they will be gone. I added one to this card front.
  • The Bumblebee trinkets are back in stock and adding two to the card really adds to the look.
