Hi All! Today I can finally share some exciting news I have been keeping from you. Last month Julee, the amazingly talented stamp designer from Verve Visual, contacted me to be one of her Guest Designers. Well, you guys know that nobody could pass up that opportunity so I instantly said YES! Soon after I got this amazing new stars stamp set called "Seeing Stars" in the mail. I thought it was so cute I immediately starting stamping with it. I just love the clean and whimsical style these stamps add to your cards. The first card I made is called "Possibilities" and I used the stars to create a starry scene. I colored them in with my Copics and did a trail of swirls with my paper piercing tool. Card sock used is SU Pumpkin, Bayou Blue, Sky Blue, and Basic Grey "Recess" patterned paper. Accessories are SU brads, and SU ribbon. The second card is a monochromatic design in which I stamped a pattern of stars to create patterned paper. The sentiment is stamped on PTI white card stock and backed with a scalloped square nestabilites die. I used my crop-a-dile to punch to holes on both sides and the added silver eyelets. I then tied some May Arts ribbon and adhered it with 3d glue dots. Card stock used is SU Basic Black, Sahara Sand, and PTI white. The last card is a Patriotic take on the stars and stripes. I colored the stars with my Copics in red and blue. I layered them on top of each other to create a 3d look. Card stock used is SU Sahara Sand, WW, Black, Memory Box "Flirt" patterned paper, and some blue dotted vellum sheet. Accessories are SU eyelets, ribbon, tab punch, and paper piercing tool. So now that I have shared my exciting news I urge you to take a peak at all 7 of Verve Visual's new stamp set releases. They are all adorable and so reasonably priced. Julee also has a post about me on her store blogspot, so check it out and leave some Love.
