Penny Black Saturday Challenge

This is my card for the PBSC this week. I love these adorable critters. I painted the images with Tombow markers and added some stickles. The frame is made from mat board and cardstock that I put through my spellbinder with a cuttlebug embossing folder. I also layered the ornaments. Have a great day!!

I thought I would post another pergamano card and try to give a bit of info on what Pergamano is all about. First you start with a piece of parchment paper. Place a pattern under the parchment and trace with white Tinta ink and a mapping pen the entire pattern. You then flip it over on a foam pad and dry emboss the areas you choose. You can also pierce with piercing tools any areas you wish. Pergamano is a very relaxing art.....and the results are always different.

I hope you find this info useful....give it a try. There is a great website Check it out!!

This is a card we made in a class recently. Our pergamano ladies all did a fabulous job. I stamped the image from a Stampendous stamp and used it as a pattern. I incorporated a frame from a pergamano book....and voila!! We plan to get together through the winter and perfect our pergamano skills. Hope to see you there!

Penny Black Saturday challenge

Hello everyone!! This is the card I have chosen for the PBSC this week....which is... mans card no blue. I think this new PB stamp fits right in. This stamp is so adorable. I painted it with Tombows and of course added some stickles. I just love the paper, which is from one of our newest suppliers. I cut out some holly leaves from the paper and layered them onto the corners.I also layered the holly on his collar.

A Beautiful Japanese Wedding

This lovely page was completed by Betty McGee in a class at

"The Rubber Room". She was inspired by the layout titled-

Your Biggest Fan. It was the perfect layout for her daughter's Japanese wedding. Featured in this photo is another one of our regular scrappers Janice Chaki (Betty's daughter)

Hope you enjoy this as much as we do.
