LaBlanche Country Home


I have a quick and easy card to show you this morning.  I have posted several cards using the new LaBlanche stamps you can order from Joan's Gardens and want to show you another one.  I have shown you how beautiful these images are when you color them with reinkers and also with Copic markers.  This one was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed it with Ranger, Super Fine, Detail Clear embossing powder.  I clear embossed it because it seems to bring out all the fine lines even more.  I love this stamp without coloring, but I bet it is going to be gorgeous in color too.

After stamping the image, it was cut out with a Label Seventeen Nestability.  Then using the same die and the one size larger, cut a black frame for the picture.  The designer paper used for this card is from the Making Memories Wedding paper pad.  A strip of black card stock was added to the left side and the pretty trim was attached with ScorTape.  Since the trim has pearls, I decided to add a few more to the frame. 

Hope you like it.  If you would like to see all the LaBlance stamps Joan has in stock, just check out her store here at Joan's Gardens.  I know you will love working with them!

Thanks for stopping by.
