Sweet Stamps- Anything Goes

 When I first met Sweet Stamps, the thing that grabbed my attention was the Parchment stamping.  I saw Stacey doing parchment stamping and embossing, and I just HAD to buy the supplies and give it a go! (HERE is a Pintrest video link) I also love the elegant Parchment stamps in the store for card making too!

 I just love the elegance the parchment piercing adds to a card.
 And, around the outer border, I rubbed the stylus over the parchment on the metal piercing plate, and it leaves a dotted pattern on the vellum. The image is colored from behind with Copics.

 If you are not into Parchment, the images make lovely cards as well : )

Elegant is the perfect description, Shelly! Can you believe I gave away all my parchment papers when I was packling to move because I didn't ever 'use' them. :-D Of course, that was before I got inspired by this post. Sigh, I feel a shopping spree coming on to replace those parchment papers. TFS
