Italiana Riviera “Friends Like Wine…”

Italiana Riviera “Friends Like Wine…”

Hi everyone!    Welcome to New Release Day at 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 this new collection I decided to create for you a lovely wine glass that is large enough to also be used as a decorative piece.  You can get the cut file here.

Begin by cutting out the pieces for the wine glass from White card stock using your electronic die cutting machine and the panels from a piece of designer paper from the Italiana Riviera Paper Collection.  Assemble as directed and then start with your decorating!  The grapevines are stamped with Memento Expresso Truffle and distressed with Forrest Moss.  The border was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold Embossing powder.  The Vintage Floret Flowers were stamped with Memento Expresso Truffle and distressed with Victorian Velvet and Wilted Violet distressed ink and finally the grapevine clusters were colored with Wilted Violet distressed ink and a touch of wink of stella.

Thanks so much for visiting.  Have a wonderful day!

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.

  1. This is such a beautifully creative project.


  2. Wow…this is beautiful Joann! I love all the detail and the colors are gorgeous!


  3. I am new to your site and love many of the designs you show such as the chalice, the cross box, etc.  Where can I get those patterns?  I have found the assembly instructions, but not the patterns needed to cut the pieces to make the product.  Was thinking that cross box would be perfect for our granddaughter who is getting confirmed the end of the month.BlessingsDarleen Harens, MN From: Castlepark Designs To: Sent: Wednesday, October 14, 2015 2:05 AM Subject: [New post] Italiana Riviera “Friends Like Wine…” #yiv0875119226 a:hover {color:red;}#yiv0875119226 a {text-decoration:none;color:#0088cc;}#yiv0875119226 a.yiv0875119226primaryactionlink:link, #yiv0875119226 a.yiv0875119226primaryactionlink:visited {background-color:#2585B2;color:#fff;}#yiv0875119226 a.yiv0875119226primaryactionlink:hover, #yiv0875119226 a.yiv0875119226primaryactionlink:active {background-color:#11729E;color:#fff;}#yiv0875119226 | Castlepark Designs posted: “Hi everyone!    Welcome to New Release Day at 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.

    • Hi Darleen,

      I just had a look and for the posts where the assembly instructions are from Needles ‘n’ Knowledge they do not seem to provide a link to their files but they are available in the Silhouette online store.

      Hope this helps


  4. Just gorgeous! Love this beautiful goblet and the way you embellished it! A wonderful way to showcase this collection!!


  5. I love it. The project is beautiful. Thank you yet again Joann.


  6. Absolutely stunning Joann!! You are so talented.


  7. Beautiful Joanne! I almost went with this cutting file too, but then opted to do the wine bottle instead! Heartfelt Creations will have a full place setting from us by the time we are done! LOL Your design is stunning and I love the sparkle you’ve added to the roses and foliage!
