Jennifer Snyder here to share a quick DIY tutorial and two different perspectives using the same chippies.
Scroll down to see my step-by-step instructions showing how I finished the grapes and vines.
I’ve selected the gorgeous detailed Grapevines chipboard from Creative Embellishments to use as perfect examples of how the same chipboard can enhance different papers for totally different looks.
I am also going to show my step-by-step (easy) process to making these grapevines look diVINE – like you see this here and almost fresh picked straight from the vineyard.
Below is an image of the fabulous detailed Grapevine chipboard. The package has so many pieces in it – such a great value. I was able to make two cards from the same package.
Here is the first card. I picked light cheery purple papers for a more contemporary look.
The papers are from Stamperia and the collection is called Lilac Flowers.
I layered a grape leaf by using a bit of foam on the back to give it dimension.
The image below has the steps I followed to created the look of my grapes and vines.
Step 1. I painted the leaves with Forest Moss Distress Paint. Then I added some brown to the vines and veins on the leaves using Dark Chocolate Liquid Pearls . I find that products like Liquid Pearls/Stickles and Nuvo Crystal Drops are easy to use because they have a nice fine tip for detailed work, do not bleed and run and add great dimension to the chipboard. I am not skilled with a paintbrush so anything I can do to make my life easy is the path I’m going to take.
Step 2. Next I wanted to add some highlights to the leaves and leaf veins so I added some light green Tonic Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gloss Green Apple.
Step 3. I added dabs of Lime Green Stickles Glitter Glue, then after all is dry, I inked the edges of the leaves with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
Step 4. Ahhhhh those ity-bity grapes clusters……have I mentioned I’m not skilled with a paint brush? Oh yeah, I sure did. So I used the flat end of a wood skewer to dab a dot of paint on the grapes. Soooooo easy and quick.
I used Prima Art Alchemy – Metallique Plum Preserves.
Step 5. To give the grapes some dimension, I added Stickles to the grapes. A bunch of grapes on the vine may have different shades of grapes and the different Stickles does just this – adds a few varying shades of grapes.
I used Stickles Glitter Glue – Lavender and
Stickles Glitter Glue – Diamond (Icicle or Crystal).
Warning…Warning…..Warning …..Make sure to let the Stickles dry!
Here is the second card I made with a vintage flair.
The little “love” tag came from Stamperia’s Old Lace 12×12 paper that I used on this project.
The grapes and vines have a different feel on the Old Lace paper.
Thanks to Creative Embellishments for offering me a second term on this talented Design Team. I value the opportunity and am excited to share many more projects this season.
Thanks for visiting here today. Happy Scrapping!
