Wine Labels

Jacqueline does beautiful stamping over wine labels and I have always admired her cards, I have even been lucky enough to receive one of her label cards to see in person.  I just love the neat ways that she uses them. Check out her Blog HERE scroll down to April 20th to see the neat ways she uses them, and the rest of her lovely creations!!

 Well she was sweet enough to send me some to give it a try on my own.  Now this first one I didn't quite use it the same way that she does, but I loved this scene on this label and decided to color it with pencils instead of stamping over it. Although I did use a butterfly stamp set and dies that I won from Verve, not to long ago to go with the label.


Wine label -- colored w/pencils
Verve -- Butterfly grace stamp set and Graceful Butterflies dies
Starform-- transparent glitter gold stickers
Martha Stewart -- border punch

This was a sympathy card but I didn't end up putting any sentiment on it.

I should have the deck finished tonight, YAH!!! well the floor part I have all the spindles to the railing to do but that can be done after I bring everything back up on the deck.  Then it will be time to  start the front porch railings.  It is a lot of work but I am loving the results!!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today, I appreciate you leaving a comment to let me know too, I know how busy everyone is this time of year.

What a pretty card and such a creative way to use a wine label! I am always trying to save them, with limited success. Some are little works of art! Staining the deck is hard work - I know. Heating pads come in handy when you are done :) xx Karen

I can't help but admire wine labels and anything that I can picture on a card. I rarely save them, though. You did a beautiful job with this one... always thinking and creating! Bet you'll be glad when that deck is finished, and your back will be glad, too!

Aren't you so creative? I love the wine bottle label as part of your collage, Connie! Beautifully done, and such delicate papers to complement it! hugs, de

This is a fantastic idea, I just love your card. Pretty soft colours and papers.

As you can see, I'm 329 e-mails behind LOL. Love how you worked the wine label into your card. I followed your link and enjoyed seeing more artwork with labels. I have a few girlfriends that would love to receive a card with a wine label.
