Denise's Peachy Wine Label
Christmas is almost here! and we are so excited for Peachy Keen's giveaway! Just in case you haven't noticed, Peachy Keen Stamps are so adorable, and you can seriously use them in just about everything! And today, we are moving on from Christmas, and we are getting ready for the New Year! Denise, will show us how she turned her Christmas PKS set, into something to decorate a wine bottle for celebrating 2012!
than one week until Christmas! But, we cannot forget that New Year’s is
shortly after Christmas! This week, the Design Team was assigned with
the task of making a New Year’s project using our wonderful Peachy Keen Stamps
and 3L Scrapbooking Adhesives! With so much going on, I opted again to
make a quick and easy project that anyone can duplicate in a short
amount of time! Oh, and I also have a free SVG file for you too designed
specifically to use with our eCraft machines!
friend of mine is going through a rather nasty divorce, and this will
be her first New Years without her husband, so knowing how the holidays
can make people feel kind of down, I decided to try to perk her up a
bit! It involves a bottle of this wine…hey it’s New Years, wine has to
be the guest of honor!
I just loved the name of this wine! So perfect for my friend! Of course, I have to dress it up a bit! So here is what I did.
first thing that I did was cut out my Wine Bottle Tag using Glossy
Cardstock from Ranger. Because I have set up this file to have a score
mark that is being drawn by the pen, I cut this with the glossy side
down so that the pen drew the score mark on the back of my tag. You can
download this Wine Bottle Tag SVG right HERE!
also cut out the snowflake from some regular white cardstock. This
snowflake is from the Year of Celebration SD eCraft Design Card. I used
the eCraftshop Pro software to cut this so that I could also cut out a
circle that fits in the center of it.
to add in my color…I got my tag and some alcohol inks together in
various shades of blue. The colors that I used were Stonewashed,
Juniper, Pool, Aqua, Cloudy Blue, and Sail Boat Blue. Using my Ink
Blending Tool and a felt pad, I added a dot of each color onto the felt.
I also added a little Snow Cap Mixative onto the felt. Then I just
dabbed away filling up my entire tag with some color.
decided after doing this step that I wanted the colors to be a little
more blended, so I added some Alcohol Blending Solution onto the same
felt pad and went over it again. This is the results of that Alcohol
Blending Solution. Love this look!
then turned my attention to my snowflake. I wanted to add a little
color to the snowflake, but wanted to keep some of the white in there as
well. What I did was swiped my ink pads (Distress Weathered Wood and
Tumbled Glass) onto my non stick craft mat and spritzed it with some
water. I then dragged my snowflake through the watered down ink and
dried it with my heat tool in between layers until I was happy with the
for the face…using the largest size stamp in the Winter Wonderland
Assortment from Peachy Keen Stamps, I stamped my face onto my circle
using Black Archival Ink (important to use a waterproof ink for this
step) and then colored in the mouth and added a touch of pink chalk on
the cheeks and set everything with a heat tool just to make sure that it
was completely dry. I then applied a thick layer of Rock Candy Distress
Crackle Paint. I let this all dry naturally, but you can speed it up
with a heat tool once you see some of the crackle appear. Once it was
all dry, I used my Ink Blending Tool with a little Tumbled Glass
Distress Ink to highlight the crackles. And then I used Weathered Wood
to ink up the edges. Then I added some Melissa Frances Tinsel Ribbon
with Crafty Power Tape from 3L Scrapbooking Adhesives onto the back of
the face. I adhered the snowflakes with 3L’s My Stik onto the tag
leaving some places not glued down so to add a little dimension. 3L’s 3D
Foam Squares are perfect to add the face onto the snowflake!
in all, this tag went together really quick and would be very easy to
mass produce if needed! I will be back next Monday to share with you a
little crafty Christmas tradition in our house!
