Good Monday. Hope everyone had a great weekend. It's back to school for our kids this week after a week off. They weren't looking forward to it. Testing begins this week for them.
Today's card challenge is to make a card in the style of Wendy Vecchi. She has her own stamp line now, which Sharon has carried in the store since she visited last year, called Studio 490.
It reminds me of vintage or folk art kind of. I bought this stamp set last year, and had not used it yet. The flower and stem are from the set. The leaf was just cut out free hand, distressed and turned up. I embossed the flower twice and layered it using a button in the center tied with twine. The border punch with the birds is from Martha Stewart.
You don't have to have the stamp sets to try this technique. Use any flower, a swirl or flourish stamp or die cut for the stem and leaf. For more ideas, visit her web site at
Hope you have time to try this. Thanks for visiting. Until later...........
