060415 CKC June Forgery Tutorials

Welcome to my CKC June forgery tutorials.
You know at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog we are all about the big cheat.
Let's make some new goodies out of old stash!
My Basic Grey collection is Prism.

I liked this B side of the Petals paper.

(I thought it was light bulbs!)
Prima stamp & Color Box Frost White ink
My friend Sherrie gave me some *good advice* when stamping a pattern.
Start & end off of the edges to give it a continuous look.

Next is the B side of Quilt:

I used a Heidi Swapp die cut paper as a mask with
her Color Shine in Black Velvet on blue cardstock.

Next I made my own stencil like this one.

I had the perfect old AC paper that made it relatively easy.
I just cut out the triangles row by row in the same pattern.

I loved these dressed up tags... I made a few with washi, paint, and even some gold foil.

I just thought I would show you how the gemstone freebies 
that Lynnette had in the tutorial post this month turned out. Love these!
Just print on your paper (the reverse side if single-sided) & fussy-cut.
I enlarged the freebie paper & when I can locate 
my watercolors that are playing hide & seek with me
in my studio I will shade the gems with the water brush!

Just for fun, I also foiled some wood veneers with a 15 year old 
product originally made for foiling on fabric, but a little glue & voila.
They are a little less than perfect but I'm calling them "distressed".

So won't you try your hand at hand crafting your favorite items?
It's easier than you think! Don't forget you can look at past 
months' tutorial posts for additional ideas & inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Oh my gosh, these are all so brilliant! What a lovely presentation of embellishments. Love your tags, and your gold foils!! They've worked a treat! Awesome work Leslie!

  2. Wow - you have been very busy! I definitely think you're the Queen of the Forgeries - you have such a great variety to share this month. I think my favorites are the dressed up tags, but I also like the lightbulb paper (cute stamp too) and the triangle paper. That last one looked like it was very time-consuming but the end result is lovely.

  3. How clever! I love your gold embellishments plus those jewels. I hope your watercolours emerge soon.

  4. You've been busy. I just found that Heidi Swapp stencil as well - it's fab!

  5. Fabulous!!! I love those tags you made!

  6. You can tell that you have so much fun doing these. I know lightbulbs are going on above your head, like on that FAB paper, all the time. Thank you for your creative contributions. Xo

  7. am just putting my kit together but am excited about your forgeries! Awesome! I think I need to grab some veneers and dress em up with some gold!
