Half Full Wine & Friends Cards

I'm adoring the half full stamp set, not only because of this festive time of year, but because those images are just so much fun to color!  When you use the new Stampin' Blends Markers to add shading and highlights to the bottles and glasses, it really gives them a "too cool" watercolor feel!

Background Basics—This card starts with a 5-1/2" x 1" strip of Fresh Fig card stock that's been embossed with the Pinewood Planks Texture Impressions Folder.  The other 1-1/2" x 4-1/4" paper is from the Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper!  The gold foil pattern on the paper reminded me of grape vines. The background of the paper is actually Very Vanilla, but I modified it by coloring it with the light Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends marker.  Cool!  Both strips are adhered to a Very Vanilla card base.

Wine Border—I stamped the Half Full wine glasses image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink across the bottom of a 4" x 2-3/4" piece of Very Vanilla.  Then I stamped a sentiment on the top right.  I used the Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight Blends markers to color the wine.

4 Basic Steps For Blends Coloring:

  1. Color the entire area in the light shade with brush tip.
  2. Add shading with the dark shade brush tip.
  3. Blend the two shades with the light bullet tip.
  4. Add highlights with the Color Lifter.

I also added a little Wink of Stella clear shimmer to the wine.  After adhering onto a 4-1/8" x 2-7/8" Black mat, I tied some Old Olive 1/8" Sheer Ribbon around the piece and popped it up with Dimensionals.

Wine Bottle—I used the same coloring techniques for the wine bottle, using Daffodil Delight for the wine, Old Olive for the label and Rich Razzleberry for the seal.  Notice how on the label I even left some parts without any color to really add "shiny" highlights. If you look closely, you'll see that I also added a little bit of light Crumb Cake around the edge of the bottle above the wine level.  I hand-cut the bottle and popped it up with Dimensionals, too.

Finishing Touches—I tucked a Gold Foil leaf from the Leaf Punch under the stamped layer with a Glue Dot.  I also added a Rhinestone Jewel that I colored with the dark Old Olive Stampin' Blends marker.  Those markers are so versatile!

More Cool Coloring—This time I featured the single wine glass image colored in Daffodil Delight and a hint of light Old Olive around the edges.  I also stamped the label image from the set onto a scrap of Very Vanilla, colored it in and hand-cut it to adhere next to the glass.  Check out those grapes!  I used the same steps for coloring each grape and I LOVE how dimensional they turned out.  The lighter ones have a little more Color Lifter to make them pop! 

I changed up the color of the wine bottle a little, using the same three colors.  Finally, this photo shows the altered Rhinestone Jewels a little better…this time colored with Rich Razzleberry Blends marker.
