Stamp Club Challenges for Sept.

It was my turn to provide the stamp club challenges for this month. The first challenge was a purse stamp from Me and Carrie Lou which is no longer in business. I embossed the purse with gold embossing powder. The flower images are from Fiskars' Asian Inspired stamp set and colored with Copics. I cut each individual flower and adhered to the purse.

I added gold seam tape for the handle.

The insert was die cut with Memory Box's new pocket die. Once again, I stamped and gold embossed the same Fiskars' images and colored with markers on vellum. The sentiment was cut from the Labels Four Small set from Spellbinders and the sentiment is from Flourishes.
The sketch I provided is from Verve which appeared on their blog in April. The designer paper is new from Authentique. The image is from Flourishes called Zinnias and colored with Copics and is one of my favorite new stamp sets! I die cut the main image with Labels 10 from Spellbinders and distressed the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. The dark gray cardstock is embossed with the Swiss dots folder from Cuttlebug and the edge punched with an EK Success punch. The butterflies were punched from some of the designer paper with a Martha Stewart butterfly punch and added pearls to the bodies. Added some ivory lace to offset the punched edge.
