I have just discovered Verve Stamps! I know I must have been living under a rock! I can't wait to place an order. They are so cute and just my style. I decided to try Julee's sketch challenge this week, and I love the sketch so much I made three cards with it. Please help me decide which one to submit.
This one is made with Grillfella by Stampingbella. I used gray cardstock that I bought at Staples when I first started stamping. I also used chocolate chip by SU! and the patterned paper is by Miss Elizabeth. I got it at the Dollar Store. It is a pack of 125 4x6 sheets. What a deal! The brads are from my stash. The sentiment is a dollar stamp from AC Moore. I think it is by Studio G, but I unmounted it, so I am not sure. Can you tell I am a frugal stamper?! I colored with Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS. I finished it off with Tommy's silver gel pen.
This next one is Stampendous's Bee Trio. My friend, Sarah, sent me these images! Aren't they cute? I colored them with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. The cardstock is Positively Pink, Green Galore, and YoYo Yellow by SU!. The patterned paper is from a pack I picked up at Target in the Dollar Spot (again, my thriftiness id shining through tonight). The sentiment says "What's Up?" but you can't really see it because of the stickles all over it. There are stickles on the spots, stripes, and wings of the bees too. The ribbons are from Joann's and the eyelets from by eyelet box. The antennas are tiny stickers that I stole from my kids' craft box.
Ok, the last one... the bride to be I made the wine charms for a couple weeks ago needs a wedding card, so here it is. Her colors are black and gold hence the black and gold in the card. The stamp is by Stampingbella. The sentiment is a Studio G dollar stamp embossed in gold. The cardstock is Basic Black by SU! and a shimmery white by the Paper Company. The shimmery paper is embossed with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. The patterned paper and the gold vellum are both from Joann's. The bride has stickles on her sash and veil. Her dress is covered with Crystal Effects. I colored the Groom with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. Again, I stole Tommy's gel pen for the gold dots. I sponged the edges of the image with gold, but it didn't show up very well. Well, please let me know which you like the best! Thanks so much!
