Tuscan Vineyard ‘Just A Note’ Card

This Tuscan Vineyard stamp set is another new set that I was anxious to ‘play’ with.  It’s sort of vintage.  I love wine.  It reminds me of travels to Europe or California’s own wine country.  It’s peaceful.

I decided ahead of time to have a somewhat distressed look to my card.  I used Stampin’ Up!’s retired Distressing Tool to achieve the effect I wanted although you could also use a thumb nail to get that distressed look.  Honestly, I don’t remember what else I used to use before this tool came along besides my thumb but I know I used something else.

Check out the card on page 95 of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog. That was was inspiration piece.


The water coloring, with my Aqua Painter, was amazingly easy.  I used Shimmery White card stock to stamp and watercolor on. I pulled these Classic Stamp Pads to use and the rubber stamped artwork made it look good pretty darned good!

I used Soft Suede for the images stamped on the Crumb Cake side panel and Sahara Sand to stamp the corks on the back ground layer.

I’m already looking forward to making my next Tuscan Vinyard card which I’m thinking will be a note card rather than a full sized card.  Again, I’m loving the softness of this set just as I did the Birthday Fiesta the other day!  So I’m on a roll to make another one.  Be sure to go to my Stampin’ Up! online store if you’d like to add this lovely Tuscan Vineyard stamp set to your collection.  It’s also available in clear mount and clear blocks a, b, d, e, and g are recommended.  Wood or clear mount, enjoy.  It’s a lovely stamp set.

  1. Did you use the side of a scissors blade or an emery board? I was sorry to see the distressing tool retire.

  2. Carol, because I didn’t get rid of the distressing tool, that’s what I used. If I was doing it in a class I’d probably use either the side of a scissor blade or, really and truly, my thumb nail, working it counter-clockwise. ~Blythe
