I am still having fun with the new stamp set Charming that is in the Holiday Mini Catalog. It really is a charming stamp set! The first is a mini album that we made in stamp club this month. Once again I copied Amy Rohl except I didn't have enough buttons in the right color so we inked some chipboard circles with Not Quite Navy craft ink and used the white gel pen to make them look like buttons. Sorry the first photo is a little fuzzy-I didn't notice until I uploaded it-I probably forgot to change the settings. The pear is a piece of chipboard that was stamped with the background stamp from Charming with Old Olive craft ink and the little flourish was stamped with Not Quite Navy craft ink. The outside cover is textured with a SU Texturz plate.
The second is a card made from a piece of scrap Old Olive laying on my table so it is a little smaller than a standard A2 card. The background is stamped with Versamark and embossed with clear EP. The ribbon is a piece of Elegant Eggplant card stock that I punched on both sides with the SU Eyelet Border punch to make it look like ribbon. When I first started making cards this was my favorite color combo-Old Olive and Elegant Eggplant. Old Olive is still one of my go-to colors but I don't use Elegant Eggplant very often.
