When I started out to make this card I was going to use the Verve set "Shining Star", but when I pulled the Verve banner stamp out of the case I keep it in I saw a little freebie stamp that I had received from Verve and used that instead. The stars and smaller banner were die cut using the Verve Stars and Flag It dies. I think I should have created some textured on the white cardstock piece, but too late now, lol!
The second card is for the current ColourQ challenge. I was going to use the colors to make a card using the Verve sketch, but obviously decided against that, lol, and went with straight out stamping. I like to go with straight out stamping when I think I'm going to have a hard time making cardstock and patterned paper work. This was one of those color combos! Since I didn't have an ink that is comparable to Cool Caribbean I used some washi tape in a similar color. The stamps are from the Stampin Up! set "Oh, Hello".
Supplies: Cardstock: PTI white, lemon tart & true black; Stamps: Verve and Stampin Up!; Inks: Stampin Up! and Memento; Patterned Paper: Stampin Up!; Sequins: Pretty Pink Posh; Dies: Spellbinders and Verve
