Books + stamps

I love stamping and I love reading! So I couldn't resist joining the team putting on the next round of VSN, where the theme is VSN Book Club! The coordinators challenged us hostesses to make cards inspired by the cover of a favorite book. I'm a big fan of "Snowflower and the Secret Fan," by Lisa See, so I had to use it as the inspiration for my card. I found some Basic Grey Phoebe paper that mimics the mottled background of the book, used my paper crimper to mimic the fan folds, and pulled out Artfully Asian for the flowers.
If you want to use books as inspiration for your stamping, join us for the first of several mini VSN "book signings" this Friday! You can find more information HERE!
Supplies:
Stamps: Artfully asian, embrace life
Ink: Memories black, copic markers
Paper: vanilla, chocolate chip, Basic Grey phoebe
Accessories: ribbon, coin, crimper

I have to read that book already ... my girlfriend told me about it an year ago and it has sat on my shelf for a year. I never have enough time between books and stamps. Great interpretation of the cover to a card.
