some cards to share...

Hello friends!!  Got some crafty time in this morning and was able to make a couple of cards.  The first card is for the current Dynamic Duos color challenge and uses Viva La Verve week 2 sketch

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".  
 
 
 Thanks for stopping by...

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
