I'm FINALLY stamping again!!!!

After weeks of not being able to stamp due to broken pipes and sickness...I FINALLY got to stamp tonight. Since it has been a while since I've stamped I decided to use a sketch challenge and what better one to use than the Verve Visual honored guest sketch challenge contest. I made the first card using SU! Roses in Winter. It turned out ok but not exactly what I had envisioned. The second card I made is in my opinion MY FAVORITE card I have ever made. I absolutely love this card. I used my Verve Visual set "Starlight Starbright". I LOVE this set and I LOVE this card. It was really hard to get a good picture of it. I sprayed the black background cardstock with glimmer mist and you can't see the shimmer in the picture but it looks great in real life. I bought some silver curling ribbon after Christmas at Target thinking "this looks cool" but never really thinking I would find a use for it...I was wrong! It worked great with this card. Can you tell I'm pretty excited, I seldom make cards that I think are good and I am so happy with this card. Let me know what you think of it. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great night!

Here is my Roses in Winter card. I used SU Ballet Blue, Apricot Appreal, Real Red and Whisper White along with some Basic Gray dp. Along with Roses in Winter I also used SU! French Script and a Flourish Set from Autumn Leaves.
Here is my "Rockstar" card. I used "Starlight, Starbright" stamp set from Verve Visual. I stamped the sentiment in Brilliance Black Ink and the Stars in silver pigment ink. The black cardstock is sprayed with glimmer mist. The first picture is taken with the camera flash off and the second one is taken using the flash. The main image squares are elevated using SU! dimensionals.

Oh, I love them both!!!! That rockstar one is really great, I love that set, I've not seen it before. Tyler was into the guitar, I wish he would take lessons again, he was getting pretty good.

Wow, these cards are both fantastic. That rockstar one really knocks your socks off, though! :)

I love them both Heather!! But the rockstar one is so striking. I am glad you posted them with and without flash, you can really see it shine with the flash. Great work and thanks for sharing!!!

They're both great but I LOVE the rockstar one! I got that set too - I used that sentiment on the preschool valentines I made, heehee.
