It's time for the new Italiana Riviera Collection from Heartfelt Creations!
It's time to slow down the daily pace, take a deep breath and embrace life with the new Heartfelt Creations Italiana Riviera Collection. We invite you to stroll down the Italian coastline taking in the spectacular seaside views, open markets, and amazing architecture while allowing yourself to relax and get lost in an easy going way of life. Feel the gentle breeze, breathe in the aromas of salty mist and mouthwatering eats as you pass by a harbour lined with delightful cafes and quaint little shops calling out to you to pause for a visit. Step through towering stone gates to meander through perfectly manicured vineyards boasting rows and rows of coiling vines filled with dense foliage and plump clusters of exquisitely purple hued grapes. Then as the sun sets, continue to take in the old world charm and beauty of the area as you relax in your villa, enjoying a glass of fine wine aged to perfection while jotting down all of the days wonderful adventures on an old fashioned postcard, pausing occasionally only to peer out the old stone window that reveals the most surreal view of lush gardens, stately mountains, beautiful flowers and that perfectly manicured vineyard. At Heartfelt Creations we dismiss the misconceived notion that you are required to leave your craft room to experience the finer things in life...so come along with us as we invite you to explore the charm and elegance of the Italiana Riviera Collection!
For my card this week I'm using the Italiana Grape Border Cling Set. There are 2 borders in the set which I stamped next to each other on white cardstock. These are colored with pencils and mineral spirits and then I added ribbon and trim between the 2 borders and a couple of bows.
Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the designers this week. Also, Emma Lou has a new video showing you tips on using intricate dies and coloring the grapes in the new collection.
I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
