MOJO194- Monday's Sketch Challenge

My husband gave me a wonderful anniversary gift this year, a new stamp set from my favorite place to shop, Verve Stamps, and I have used them to play along with the Mojo Monday Sketch Blog. I took one of the smallest flower and leaf sprig stamps and created my own paper with my still favorite colors, pink and green, from a VersaMagic Dew Drop Color Set. Then I cut them into four strips according to the sketch. For the scalloped bottom I used one of the largest flowers from my Verve Bloom and Grow Stamp Set, stamped the image four times and then I cut them out with the medium flower die from the Verve Floral Circle Die Set. They were glued in place and became the scalloped border. I think it is so cute like that. I punched the horizontal strip with the Deco Shells punch by Martha Stewart. Tied a pretty sparkle ribbon, by Offray, around the strip, and cut my badge tails too. I used Spellbinders Circle Dies for the focal point. I used the Verve Charming Oval Die for the bottom sentiment. That stamp is from Verve's Wordy Birds Set.

Hi There

Oh Yea! I finished two cards this weekend, and I still have two days to play. Another one of my birthday present stamps, Daisy Patch Bouquet, is from Heartfelt Creations. It's a little hard to tell but some of the Flowers have a second layer to add some dimension to the card. I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black and embossed it with Clear Detail Powder from Sparkle and Sprinkle. The corner punch is from Fiskar. Mine is pretty old, but they have others just as pretty. The sentiment is a Verve Stamp. The paper is just basic cardstock to match the Tombow Markers I had. I topped it off with a little sheer ribbon, my favorite, and a few sticky rhinestones.
