November Counterfeit Forgeries Add-On Kit

Hello again,  as promised here is my add-on kit for November.

Start: I started by stamping on cork in order to duplicate the Prima Coffee Break embellishments that I showed you on the first.


I used three different stamp sets.  The to-go coffee (or in my case, cocoa) cup was from a set by Freckled Fawn, the three word pieces from Gossamer Blue’s October kit club set, and the darling animals are two dollar stamps from Imaginisce’s Give Thanks Collection. I used Staz-on ink in brown, black and red.  The DCWV cork sheets are thin, backed with adhesive and cut easily.  I cut the animals lovingly by hand but used punches and a deckle scissors on the others.


Still more Stuff: DSC03781 
  • Another item I counterfeited was a 4 x 6 card of leaves.  It is a photocopy of a Longaberger napkin in the Stone Leaf pattern.  I just plopped a sample napkin I had from my days of selling Longaberger onto the printer, copied it onto cardstock and trimmed it with a metal die.
  • Proceeding clockwise, the small tag is by Hero Arts, stamped with a Gossamer Blue stamp.
  • The next card is a scrap of cardstock to which I have added two Lily Bee rub-ons.  I was about to discard this 12 x 12 sheet when I discovered that many of the sayings were related to day to day life.  Offsetting the large circle and adding another rub-on across the bottom adds interest.
  • The small leaves are mistable canvas stickers by Studio Calico.  I first applied gold ink to them directly from the pad – getting about 75% coverage.  Then I applied a little Stampin Up Ruby Red ink with a dauber.  These have a lovely subtle sheen to them.
  • Then there is another tag from Hero Arts again stamped using the Gossamer Blue set, and
  • finally Ruby Red cardstock embossed with Echo Park’s falling leaves embossing folder and watermark ink applied on top.
The Whole Stash: Here is a look at the whole kit together – with everything I revealed yesterday:

  10. Fantastic!! The cards and the leaves are each beautifully made. The cork pieces are perfection. If you didn't tell me that you made them, I might be trying to find out where they came from. You could easily market them. :) I bought some cork to use for embellishments and it has been sitting in a drawer ever since it arrived months ago. You certainly have inspired me to use it. Very well done -- perfection!
