I'm so happy you decided to sign up and follow my blog.  💛

 Today I pulled out my 1996 Definitely Decorative Grapes from Stampin Up.  I purchased this off of ebay many years ago, and I've really only used it a few times.   I think the main reason I bought it was because we have a piece of art work that is stained glass grapes above my kitchen sink, and at one time I thought I could stamp this on the wall.  YIKES.. I'm not that crafty.  Any ways I've tried to make cards with it, and it just never seems to turn out the way I was hoping.  Nevertheless when I saw the challenge I wanted to submit this card to at: Cards in Envy  I thought I'd try again, because they want to see cards featuring fruits.  So out this set came, and then frustration set in.  I used a lot of scrap paper to try and come up with a design and then finally just realized I don't think this set is for me.  Good Grief.   With that being said there was also a little annoyance that I should have fixed right away when I purchased this set from the seller, the sticker does not match the image on the back, so you have to be very careful of the placement of the grapes and leaves.  Well you know me, I get stamping and quit thinking so many mistakes were made.  Hubby said to peel up the sticker and place it the right way but I didn't want a sticky mess.  So my solution:  Sell it. 

That's right folks I'm going to add another one to my Etsy store, and actually I'm going to include that other little stamp set and my card in the package too.    I will be posting it for $7.50 +S&H of $3.00.

I forgot to mention above about the card, I also used my grapevine embossing folder.  It's a bit hard to see in this picture, but I tried to sponge some color on the leaves and grapes.  I really like how that turned out.  I'm thinking this gal needs to put the Tuscan Vineyard on her wish list in order to have some grapes. haha
Well if you are interested in the stamp sets please let me know.  

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.  
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping.
