Wishing Star

Hey there! Happy Monday! It's the start of release week over at Verve, so be sure to check out the Release Week Challenges over on our forum, for your chance to win some new stamps! It's also time for another mojo sketch, so head on over to the Mojo Monday blog for this week's sketch and eye candy.


My card for the mojo sketch is a sneak preview of a new sentiment set called Wishing You that will be available on Friday, following our release party. I paired it with an old favorite - Seeing Stars - and an aqua and brown color combo. The aqua paper is from the Girl Friday line by Cosmo Cricket and the kraft background is randomly stamped with stars from Seeing Stars. I stamped a couple of the stripey stars from Seeing Stars, inked the edges with Vintage Photo ink and then cut out and matted with chocolate chip cardstock. A little dimension, some pearl accents and a little hemp twine finished it off.

What's In it?
Stamps: Seeing Stars, Wishing You (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Girl Friday (Cosmo Cricket), Kraft, Chocolate Chip (SU!)
Ink: Vintage Photo Distress Ink (Ranger)
Accessories: Classic Circles (Nestabilities), Chocolate pearls (Kaiser Craft), Star punches and hemp twine (SU!)

  2. Love this card! I never would have thought to use two different patterns in the cirlces! I think that's one of the things that appeals to me about this card. Of course, love the color, the theme, the sentiment....everything!

    I will be adding you to my GoogleReader. I almost hate to do that because I know after looking at your work I'll be purchasing some Verve stamps! I already love them....but after looking at your work long enough I know I'll have to have them! =) So tough to choose on my shoe string budget!

    All that to say...your work is fantastic!
