Sweet Stamps Challenge- Parchment with Rubber Stamps

 A Parchment challenge with Rubber stamps is this week's challenge at Sweet Stamps- this is what enamored me with Sweet Stamps- please take a moment to drop by the blog to see all of the DT cards!

 Card One- is done in Gold embossing powder (this is cut out with the 4 needle tool)

and Card two..... done in white embossing powder.

 There is a great instructional video. at Sweet Stamps- check it out- this is not difficult and Oh- such a great look!  SweetStamps.com is sponsoring an Online Parchment Crafting Class through My Creative Classroom, which is being taught by past DT member Sandy Hulsart.

Join us in this challenge for a chance to win $20 of rubber stamps from SweetStamps.orghttp://shop.sweetstamps.com/main.schttp://shop.sweetstamps.com/main.sc  Rules are listed on the challenge blog in the sidebar. Winner is chosen by Random.org- and if you use a Sweet Stamps image- you will get two entries in the draw.

 I will list all of the supplies I used here:
 White Dye Ink, Ranger Queen's Gold EP, White EPMother's Day stamp, Parchment stamp (Dresden Rose Circle),  Copic Marker Sets:  Rosey Reds, Tea Rose and Victorian green.  
   Sweet stamps has a kit for getting started with Parchment crafting HERE- on sale right now.  In addition to the tools included in the kit, I used the 2 needle piercing tool as well.  There is a single needle and the 4 needle tool in the kit. On the bottom of the gold card, I used the Dancing Doily Lace Border back to back- one of my absolutely favorite dies!
  When I initially found Sweet Stamps, I tried this technique with 'other' vellum...... Well, it did not look the greatest- so I highly recommend the Parchment Vellum- give it a try!   The Parchment is attached to the cardstock using Vellum Adhesive Spray- works beautifully!

Dream Valley- for a special lady
Great Impressions- Anything Goes
Pan Pastel- Anything Goes
Sentimental Sunday- For a Special Woman
