Hello! I bought the Hills of Tuscany stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! January to April 2024 mini catalogue because I like the pretty samples in the catalogue. This is the first chance I’ve had to play around with it. So here’s my first Hills of Tuscany card…
I decided that the hills should be the main focus, in honour of the stamp set name! lol I was inspired by the sample in the catalogue that uses the Heartfelt Hexagon punch but didn’t want to do a straight copy. I stamped my little scene and cut it with the punch. At that point I decided to make a kind of spotlight card with it.
I stamped more of the hills and sky on a piece of Basic White card measuring 9 x 13 cm, using Old Olive and Balmy Blue inks. Then I added a bit more detail with Garden Green ink and some of the smaller stamps. I also stamped the little dots/flowers with Cherry Cobbler ink and finally my sentiment with Shaded Spruce ink.
This stamped layer was added to a piece of Shaded Spruce card measuring 9.5 x 13.5 cm and then onto my standard Basic White Thick card base (21 x 14.5 cm, scored & folded on the long side at 10.5 cm).
I then added dimensionals to the back of the hexagon and lined it up as best I could on top of the stamped layer…
To help with lining the punched shape up, I added a dot of liquid glue to the dimensionals, so that I had a little bit of wiggle time!
I hope you like my first Hills of Tuscany card and will give it a try. I’m looking forward to stamping some more lovely scenes with this pretty stamp set.
