Faux Pergamano

I recently took a class from Heidi at the Stamp Shoppe in Weston, WI called faux pergamano. Here's my take on one of the cards we made in that class.

The stamped image is from the Stamp Shoppe called Lilies of the Valley. I stamped the image with versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder on 40# vellum. On the reverse side of the image, I colored with the new distress markers. The image was cut out with the beaded oval die from Spellbinders. Leaving the die on the image and on the reverse side using the McGill embossing tools, I outlined the inside of the oval and the beads. This gives the front of the image the pergamano-look. The image was then popped on embossed green cardstock along with some added ribbon and bling. The card base is white cardstock.

June Stamp Club Challenge

Here's my take on our stamp club challenge for June. Since I will be travelling the week prior to the meeting, thought I'd better get my card completed early:) The sketch challenge is exactly as I recreated it along with a girly, girly theme. Guess this is about girly, girly as I get!

The stamp is new from My Favorite Things and colored with copics. The image was cut with Labels 10 from Spellbinders, die left on the paper and then used my air brush system to add color around the image with a copic marker. The designer paper is Wisteria from BasicGrey and mounted to lavender cardstock. The butterly punch is from Martha Stewart. Added a little bling and ribbon. Have a great summer-like weekend!

First Scrapbook Page

I didn't create the typical 12x12 instead an 8-1/2x11 so it could be placed in a frame and set on a bookcase or desk.

I somewhat followed a sketch that was provided at our stamp club for this month. Had fun creating this page from a family photo our son took of all of us on Easter. Thanks, Doug!
