Club Posh Challenge Cards & SAM Announcement

Stamp A Mania (SAM) is going to start selling unmounted Posh Impressions stamps.  I don't know about you all, but that makes me happy!  I love to buy my stamps unmounted because I don't keep the wood from any of my stamps.  They will be at two conventions this year.  Be sure to check them out if you are int he area.

Club Posh is a great stamping community.  I think it is composed of some of the friendliest stampers on the net.  Be sure to check it out.  They have Challenges that always have a twist.  They're really fun to participate in & open to all members with no deadline.  These two cards are for the challenges.

The first challenge was to make a Scrapling with a travel theme.  I chose to do Oriental.  I ended up attaching the Scrapling to a card.  I just wasn't sure I'd ever send out such a small card.  The images were all colored with a black & red Marvy Brush Art marker direct to rubber.

Stamps: Oriental Gardens & Joy Luck Set- Posh Impressions
Paper: Red Linen, White Glossy, Black Glossy
Accessories: Marvy Brush Art Markers, Swarovski Crystals, Stampin' Up! Tab Punch, Pilot Gold Paint Pen

The next card was for the fall challenge.  The twist, we couldn't use orange.  Lucky for us, there are tons of fall colors with no orange.  All of the images are simply colored with Powder Keg embossing powders. 

Stamps: Wheat-Posh Impressions
Inks: Versamark Watermark Ink Pad
Paper:  Various shades of tans
Accessories: Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 4, Powder Keg Embossing powders-Buttered Rum, Fall Splendor & Timber

I remember seeing this at Club Posh. I love the inkling, and it looks even more beautiful as a full-sized card. Very creative - love the dimension and the colors, too.
