Sweet Stamps- Mother's Day

We are creating for Mother's Day at Sweet Stamps this week. I used the same supplies and made 2 different cards for the weekly theme.

  I used some Silver Lustre cardstock from Paper Temptress as the base. I added the embossed Parchment with a spray adhesive after removing the center oval. The Roses are embossed on Parchment vellum, colored with Copics and fussy cut out. I used the spray adhesive to attach the roses. The sentiment is embossed n vellum and adhered to a smaller piece of Silver Lustre- centered under the sentiment. I took a Stardust Gelly Roll pen and added sparkle to the teardrop shapes and scallops around the edges.

 For the second card, I stamped and embossed on the Parchment Vellum- I love the look of the Queen's Gold EP on the Vellum. I used the Stylus from the back side of the vellum and debossed the edge scallops and tear drop shapes. I pierced the center oval with the 2 needle tool and the magnetic grid.
 I love the look of the piercing on the vellum. This is the link to Parchment images and the tools available at Sweet

There are classes offered on working with Parchment crafting at My Creative Classroom HERE

Sweet Stamps also sells a complete kit for parchment crafting HERE. I have to say- the parchment craft is what drew me into the Sweet Stamps booth- and I resisted, but had to come back and ended up purchasing the basics

Here are the supplies I used to make both of my cards this week:

These are amazing Shelly - love your use of vellum and parchment to make these classic cards

NanaConnie said...

Both of these are magnificent, Shelly! But I think I like the elegance of the silver one the best. Well, that's a true statement until I look at the delicate colors on the second card and then I think I like it best. On the other hand... OK, you understand. :-D
