Parchment Agapanthus

Today I have a card to share with you that I was inspired to create using Groovi plates and Clarity Stamps. Links to the products used are at the bottom of this post.

Agapanthus

I used the Groovi octagon shape plate to create the octagon shape of the card. I wanted a scalloped border so I pulled the Groovi Square plate with scallops from my collection and embossed the scallops around the octagon. I stippled a border next to the scalloped edge.

The outer card is regular parchment paper, the inner card is white parchment paper. I was inspired by dishes that I have to create the circle of leaves within the octagon shape. I stamped the agapanthus image on a sheet of white paper and placed it under the parchment paper to paint the agapanthus flowers.

I painted the image with Tombow markers using Rosemary #0 and #1 watercolor brushes (my new favorite brushes). Once the painting was complete, I turned the parchment over and dorsed the area between the stippling and the leaves with Pergamano dorso crayons (earth colors). I lightly embossed the agapanthus and leaves with Pergamano embossing ball tools. I stippled the border with a Pergamano Bold one needle tool; the scalloped edge was embossed with Pergamano embossing ball tools.

Parchment Tulips

Published by under Projects in General

Hi friends, I’m back with another parchment card that I recently made.Parchment Tulips

The pattern is a design from Anneke Oostmeijer. I hope you like it as much as I do, it was such fun and so relaxing to create this card. I just love the lace border.

I painted the design with Crayola Pip Squeak Skinnies markers that I purchased from Amazon onto regular parchment paper. To paint the design I scribbled color from the markers onto a white ceramic plate. I used a slightly damp #1 watercolor brush to pick up color and paint on the parchment. The inner card is Shaded Bordeaux parchment paper. Upon completion of the painting, I embossed the flowers and the lace around the border. After finishing the embossing, I cut the lace and the borders with parchment scissors. The inner and outer card are sewn together on the fold line with invisible thread.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I wish you all a wonderful week!

Precious Baby Boy Bassinet

Hello to all my friends. Today I have a card to share with you, a precious baby boy card I made for a dear friend’s first grandchild. The card will be given to her daughter at her upcoming baby shower. Parchment Baby Card 5

The pattern for the card is from a book entitled, Baby Treasures, written by Linda Williams. Linda’s baby designs are all perfectly stunning and I look forward to working more of the designs from the book as more of my friends become mothers and grandmothers.

A close up of the embossed baby bassinet. The card is made of regular parchment paper. Blue card stock was placed behind the parchment paper to create the soft blue color. I used pergamano embossing balls and shader tools to emboss the design.

I added Mill Hill glass beads to encircle the two ovals, as well as adding small white silk bows to the four corners of the design. The 5-needle tool was used to perforate the parchment lace around the ovals, I then embossed small circles within the perforations using a small ball embossing tool and cut the parchment with parchment scissors to create the parchment lace.

I used a Pergamano diagonal grid to emboss small dots on the card. I placed Pergamano Sticky Ink on the embossed dots with a mapping pen and then sprinkled pastel blue fine glitter on the dots. I adhered the two oval layers to the card with Perga Glue. I placed blue card stock under the top oval, as well as inserting it inside the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by, sending you sunny wishes for a fabulous weekend.
