Wine Stamps | Clean Simple Cards

Hi there! We hope you are doing ok! The lead up to Christmas can be very stressful.. is anyone else reaching for the wine?! Michelle is here on the blog today with two awesome clean and simple cards she has created with our 99% CHANCE OF WINE stamps and co-ordinating dies, with some background stamping using our TRANSMISSION GLITCH and GRUNGE TONES stamps.


Wine is always the answer….well almost always. Today I am sharing 2 cards made using the fabulous 99% Chance of Wine Stamp Set & matching dies from Visible Image.  This is such a fun set that would be perfect for lots of different occasions, or just to send to some girlfriends who are having a bad day or two.  They also have several other fun beverage related stamp sets too!  Check them out here!

To start I stamped out my images (I actually stamped 2 of the wine glasses, as I was making 3 cards but I only show 2 in the above photo).  These images stamp out beautifully the first time…no need for a second stamping, even though I did use a stamp positioner, just in case.

I used 2 of the background images from Transmission Glitch and Grunge Tones stamp sets along the right side of my cardstock, to add a bit of interest behind my main images.  I used a black ink, but to soften them abit I stamped them off once on a scrap piece of paper before taking them to my cardstock.  This way the black ink wasn`t so harsh.

I added the wine splash in the glass using a dark red ink.  These splashes are so easy to line up in the glasses…foolproof!  I did have to re-stamp the wine bottle image, as one of the splashes overlapped the top of it a bit. I redid the bottle image and coloured it using a mix of red alcohol markers and a dark grey for shading along the edges of the bottle, to darken it up.  They were then all cut out using the co-ordinating dies.

Next I needed to add the wine splashes to my cardstock as well.  I placed my diecut wine glass on the cardstock exactly where I wanted it and lined up the splash element.  I then closed the lid of my stamp positioner and removed my diecut image, this way my image was placed exactly where I wanted it.  I removed the diecut and proceeded to stamp the splash image 2x, to give it a nice deep red colour ( I also stamped it twice initially on the glass too).

To add some more interest to the background, I added several of the smaller images from the stamp set randomly.  I made sure to use the same red ink that I used for the wine slash, to kind of mimic and make it appear as if it is the wine that has left these marks on the cardstock.  I then trimmed down the cardstock 1/4″ all around, to leave a bit of a border on the card front.  

I added the sentiments (which are brilliant by the way!) to the left of my images.  To make the glasses seem a bit more real, I added some glossy accents to them to give them that glass like effect.  I allowed that to dry for a few hours, added them to my stamped cardstock, being sure to line up the splashes and added them all to my A2 sized cardbases.  

I really love how these turned out!  My vision was kind of clean and simple, but I veered a tiny bit away from that.  This is such a fun set with sentiments that are just perfect!  We all have a bad day every now and then, and I think these would be great to bring a little humour to a bad day and a little giggle.
