Silly me! I meant PERGAMANO not GERONIMO! I'm getting ready for a class in a few weeks and Perganamo (aka Parchment Crafting) is one of the techniques I will be teaching. There are a kazillion patterns, tools, and accessories out on the market for this crafting technique, but for my class we will be using Stampin'Up! supplies (with the exception of a white pencil) - and yes, it is a bit challenging!

This is my first attempt using only Stampin'Up! Supplies - and honestly - I don't think it's half bad. It's actually very soft and feminine in real life and the flaws you see in the photo don't show up at all IRL (unless you use a magnifying glass.) Here is a close-up so you can see the detail.

The technique, though a little tedious and time consuming, produces a beautiful result.

Supplies Used:

Whisper White Cardstock

Pretty In Pink Cardstock

Vellum (Parchment Paper works better)

Piercing Tool

Mat Pack


Paper Snips

Morning Soft Stamp Set

Much Appreciated Stamp Set

Personal Cutter with Embossing Blade

Snail Adhesive

Thanks for looking.

I am so happy that Spring/Summer is here - except for the humidity in Illinois - it's a great time of year. Bright colors, fresh air, picnics, swimming - all the things I love. So in honor of the season, I created this card - complete with bright, fresh colors in a style reminding me of the great outdoors.
